thank YOU!

today I decided to break the rules
 (forget the sneaky peeks)  
& show you a WHOLE thank you card I made, 
featuring 5 NEW____products...

I made this card for...

YOU!


from the bottom of my heart...

THANK YOU...

for being blog/Facebook & ART friends...
for your support & excitement over my new stuff...
for allowing me to tease you with peeks...

for leaving comments...
it's not fun to talk to myself...

for sharing the ART 
YOU create...

as a designer, it's a blast to see how others use the "things" I designed...

so...
that leads to this...

I wanted to let you know about a monthly challenge being hosted by my friend Kim...

it's a monthly challenge to USE the goodies you have & to share your art & to inspire others...

oh...
and there will be sponsors, who offer
P R I Z E S...

you can read the scoop here...


I hope you can join the fun!

so, back to the card...
5 NEW combined with some current...

I LOVE the subtle texture from 

I'll be back on MONDAY, TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY of next week to show you new stamps, new stencils (one with a twist)
new SiSi's (FABULOUS, if I DO SAY SO myself)
new___ & new ___...
oh & one more NEW...

hey...gotta have a little pre-CHA teasing!

I wish you THE VERY BEST for 2015!

THANKS AGAIN 
for popping by to visit...

I better run...
time to

make art!

Karen Noonan said...

Thank-you Wendy for sharing your talent with us, I live in a small country town in Australia, with no local access to classes and new techniques.
It is because of generous people like you who take the time to blog, that people like me are able to pursue this very gratifying hobby.

Wendy, you have hit a Home Run with this flower!!!!! Way to go!!!

Sweet Wendy. Thank YOU for: (a) being a generous and genuine soul (b) being one of the most innovative and exciting artists on the scene today and (c) for encouraging fledging artists and lifting up those who are finding joy in expressing their own creativity on every level. Love you, dear friend.
