Stuck on You - August 2020 Card Chain Challenge

Hi, Friends......

It's reveal day at the Card Chain Challenge for our August cards. This is such a fun group and I strongly encourage you to sign up to get involved!


I received this cheery and colorful card from Chris in Illinois:

This is the card I made for Hillary in the UK, using an adorable cactus NBUS stamp set from my crafty pal, Karen Ladd. (THANKS, Karen!) It's hard to tell from the photo, but I added sparkle to the succulents with my Wink of Stella pen, too.

Supplies used include:
Craft Smart - Cactus stamp and die set (have to scroll down to find the right set...)
Lawn Fawn Pottery Barn Ink Cube Set
(contains Jellyfish, Crunchy Leaf, River Rock, and Jet Black)
Spectrum Noir markers
Distress Markers
Distress Ink
Wink of Stella pen
Lawn Fawn - Small Stitched Rectangles die set
Scraps of DCWV paper and white cardstock
Twine from my stash

Sign-up for the September exchange HERE is still open for a few more days! Hope you will join us.

Take care everyone....esp those of you who are additionally affected by the terrible fires in several parts of the world. Thankfully, our community has not had any nearby fires this year. Thank you for stopping by today!!
