Framed Funky Flowers & A Milestone

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! 

Before we get to today's card, the milestone mentioned in the title of the post is that this is my 150th post featuring Claritystamp's Groovi parchment range!  Those of you who have followed me for a while will know that my favored card style has always been CAS, so when I stumbled across both Clarity and Groovi via this YouTube recommendation on November 28, 2018, I was instantly hooked!  Indeed, I headed straight for their website and bought 2 of Tina Cox's parchlets that Barbara Gray featured in the video!

I'm incredibly fortunate... as indeed many of the wider Clarity family are to now be able to call both those amazing ladies, plus others... Linda Williams, Josie Davidson and Jane Telford among them... as very dear friends!  And also to have all of them supporting my own Facebook lives!  Thanks so much, ladies!

Now to today's card.  It's is the 2nd I demoed live in my Facebook group last month and features the aforementioned Linda's artwork...

Card: Unbranded white, Clarity's Toscana designer card and clear parchment
Groovi Plates: Rectangle picot and Funky Flower NDC (all except the rectangles)
Tools and embellishments: Rectangle picot dies, Perga color pens and rhinestones from my stash

#41 NBUS at NBUS (the NDC plate is NBUS)
AG at A Place To Start
AG at Crafts Galore Encore

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,
