International Highlights Winners Blog Hop - July 2023

I’m so excited to be featured in the the International Highlights Top Ten Winners Blog Hop hosted by Kylie Bertucci. I was selected to participate in this hop by finishing in the top 10 in the July 2023 International Highlights. Thank you to everyone who voted for my Cheerful Daisies Card.

Have you noticed the Inked & Tiled Bundle in the Annual Catalogue.  The stamp set is amazing!  I created this card in Pebbled Path and Crushed Curry on a recent sketch challenge.  Join me each Tuesday at 2pm Pacific for a new sketch.

Here's the sketch I used for this card
