Happy Election Day and Blog Candy

 Dude Time Doodles Blog Hop  is HERE

 I am not going to stay up for the final tally, but I have a feeling there will be a shift in the political climate in Illinois this election.  (We'll see in the morning.....!)


 



















  I love the colors I used on this card- Barely Banana, Cameo Coral and Rose Red. The background is called Pencil Highlights and I used an older SU background.  The main image is from I Brake For Stamps. I added some stitching to the outside edge of the card to mimic the inside stamp edge. 

  Everyone that knows me knows how much I love the Technique Junkies newsletter- I would love for you to have a copy of the latest TJ CD- it is all of the newsletter techniques from the past year ( 10/9 through 8/10)  PLUS it has10 bonus techniques.

Here is a sample of what the techniques look like:
