Sheetload for Cards Submission Challenge Blog Post

Below are my sample cards and Beyond the Card item for the second part of the Sheetload of Cards DT call requirements...I am so excited to have been part of this journey. Submissions are due by April 30th. Sheetload will announce the new DT members on May 10.

It would be such an honor to work for Sheetload. Crossing my fingers and anything else I can cross - or does that cancel out crossing just your fingers??? We'll see...

Lovely work. I like how you've used the vintage print on the Simply Flowers digi-stamps. That's an original approach and a perfect embellishment on that card.

Wishing you the best of luck on this DT call, Alma.

Oh, my! You've been very busy and these are all just wonderful! Good luck to you. I hope you make it!

Alma, your work is utterly breathtaking! I think my heart stopped in admiration (or maybe it was beating too fast in awe!) ;O) I love the details of all of these: the sewing the distressing. Your amazing layouts. WOW double wow quadruple wow. Thanks for the eye-candy & inspiration! Hope you're picked for sheetloads. I'd pick you in a heartbeat! :O)
