I DEFINITELY need to dig out my clear stickers from all of my stash....I love the way Dawn used them!!


These cards are great. Just love the color combos and the layouts. Very creative and inspiring.


Oh wow! Dawn is sooooo talented! I love her creations! Can we win also win all her handmade cards shown above too? :P (greedy, greedy)

I love those owls. I've been so into owls lately, and into Amuse for a long while! They were what first drew me in to stamping. And Dawn is great as well. I'm a total fan!


I love how you use such fun colors! I have a problem with getting crazy with colors so it's always nice to see that it's okay. Tonight, I put together purple, pink and yellow with a bit of green... I thought that was being daring! Ha! Thanks for sharing!
