Welcome back to the International Blog Highlights for October!

International highlighst banner

Again, I am up for the Challenge and wanted to use the Expressions in Ink Suite from the Annual Catalog.  As usual, I had to try something a little different.  I had shown this style/ technique in the stamping portion of my Monthly Team Meeting.  We were focusing on using scraps and some things lying around on your work station.  Do you have extras hanging around?

So what is this Highlights Gallery all about?  Well, there is a gallery full  of amazing cards  and you are able to VOTE for your favourite cards that you would like to see highlighted later on in the month.   The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop.

I would Really Appreciate you taking the time to Vote for me!!  Scroll down below, there is a button where you can click on and see all the participants and you get to vote for 5 projects!!  So 4 plus mine!! You will vote by clicking on the heart.   Hint, hint.......  Thank you, I really do appreciate it!  I will put the vote button right below my picture.  My Card is lucky # 13.

As usual, the theme is THANKS and what better way to say thanks is by sending or giving a card. I do have a video for how to make this card..  In the video, I am showing how I made the braided ribbon trim Thank You card.  Here is my Card.  I will also include the supply list below.
