Inspired by Others . . .

Hello Everyone and Welcome to my blog!

A short while back I was over on Pinterest checking out some of the latest pins and came across a card pinned by Debbie McNamara that really caught my eye!  I decided right then & there that I wanted to case this beautiful creation.  The card was actually created by Teneale Williams back in June of 2011.

Here is Teneale's creation . . .


and, here is mine . . .

I haven't used this emboss resist technique in a very long time!  
I really must make time to revisit some of these techniques that I learned so long ago!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I hope you enjoyed my post.  I also hope that you find inspiration in my work just as I do in all of yours!  Have a fabulous day and as always . . .
