Tasteful Backgrounds Dies

This is a card that uses the dies to make an impression on
cardstock.  Tasteful Backgrounds on page 196 work well
when trying this technique.  It makes for a simple, yet 
elegant card.

Good Morning Magnolia

I have to say that I'm really glad that I was able to post
today.  Behind the scenes, I have been having computer 
problems for several months....ugh!!  Hard drive and logic
board were replaced in my 2+ year old computer.  I believed
my computer problems were behind me.  No such luck.
Apparently when the computer was put back together, the
internal microphone was covered over.  For some, that
would not be a problem.  However, given that I do Zoom
meetings, in order to work from home, it was a huge problem.
I found myself asking "can you hear me now?"
So I headed back to the Apple store today.  It was a 
ghost town because of a certain virus, so now's the time to take your computer in.
Anyway, the tech knew immediately what had happened and
had it fixed in an hour.  I am overjoyed to say that I am
back in business, literally and figuratively.

So, my card for today uses the Good Morning Magnolia set 
(page 38).  This is a set that enables coloring of spectacular
images, with blends, aqua painter or watercolor pencils!

Tropical Chic with Tropical Dies

The Tropical Chic stamp set (page 93), with 
coordinating Tropical Dies (page 197) are an elegant
combo.  The ability to easily create a fern window
makes it look like you worked harder than you
actually did.  That's the kind of product that I like!
