Wow, Sue you knocked this one out of the park. I love that gorgeous die and effect your achieved by using the sparkly clear and the Frantage powders.We don't have as many nice things in our local JoAnn's as you seem to have. I'll have to complain. Have a sparkling day.

Sorry I have been so absent. This is just totally amazing, Sue! You had me at all the blue, and that wonderful crystal texture. Maybe I can play along.

Oh my goodness, Sue - this is gorgeous! So very pretty! Loving that buttoned snowflake! Your JoAnns sounds way nicer than ours! Hope you are well. Melissa is flying in this weekend from Germany for her one and only baby shower! Can't wait to see our very first grand- bump! She says she still looks at the beautiful cards she got from you while Nick was deployed. Thanks again, dear friend!

I just colored this image for a class I taught last week. I did mine in traditional Christmas red and green, but this blue looks fabulous. I like the way you show the color of the bulb reflection in their faces. I have been doing a bunch of HM stamps, but so far none have met the challenges. :(
