Last night at a demonstrator meeting with my upline, Julie at Julie's Stamping Spot, and we made the cutest card using the Poppin' Pastels technique.

Hi Stacey,
I copied the code and added it to my sidebar but it doesn't show up as a badge/button on Wordpress. The link does work though just looks weird. blog addresss is http://jlfstudio.wordpress.com

Other than that I love the new design. The in color theme is great and the stage setting is a bit of joyful sophisticated fun!

Hugs - Jean

Hi Stacey, the new blog banner and look is fantastic! My site definitely needs a makeover. Thanks for the inspiration.

The card done with chalk and VersaMark is gorgeous! I love that technique, but haven't done it in years. I've never had the Stampin' Up pastels. Thanks for a chance to win.
