2nd Spring Virtual Retreat ~ Part 1

Hi everyone, 

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know! 

The cards I'm sharing with you today are from sessions 1 and 2 of the recent 2nd Spring Virtual Retreat I did in my Facebook group.  Indeed, the prep for it and finishing up from it is what kept me from blogging recently.  Then, an internet outage this morning is the reason this post is so late out!  

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity clear parchment and Designer Paper
Groovi Plates: 26 Nested Octagons, Tina's Daisy Flowers parchlet, and Occasions border
Tools and embellishments: Groovi and Pergamano embossing, perforating and cutting tools, Perga color pens, white Posca pen and rhinestones from my stash

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's clear parchment and Designer paper
Groovi Plates: Linda's Garden Swing
Tools and embellishments: Picot rectangle dies, Perga color pens and Pergamano brads
