    Well Karen, the design team has done it again! Of course with your cute stamps it would be hard for anyone to make a ‘bad’ card. LOL These are ALL seriously adorable.
    I love to colour however there is a learning curve to the different mediums so right now I am trying to master Zigs, Copics and learning to water colour. Yes, all at the same time. LOL (Probably not the best idea but I love it.)

    Tracie C. says:

    These are truly amazing projects. Great job everyone.

  38. 38

    Such colorful, beautiful cards by the DT. My favorite coloring medium is distress inks. I am a very heavy handed colorer so I find it hard to use alcohol markers. I like how versatile the distress inks are — markers, pads, daubers, and how you can put some on a craft mat, water them down and just swipe a card through them. They are very forgiving, which is what I need since I do not color stamps well at all.

  39. 39

    DT did a great job!!!
    I love to use my Promarkers
    Thanks so much for the chance to win!!

    This release is so cute, the hop was inspiring and so are these beauties 🙂 I will call myself a beginner so I can’t choose one, but as I don’t own many stamps so all the times I feel I don’t have a particular stamp, As I love Quilling, I take out my strips of paper and quill those images or patterns!
