Hi, welcome to my blog and Day FOUR of the anniversary celebration for Ellen Hutson, LLC. And HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! To be included in this hop with so many talented and wonderfully kind people in this community always boggles my mind. But, Ellen exudes that kind of graciousness across all stamp designers and stores. She’s a loving, kind and warm-hearted person. And I am forever grateful for the day she asked me to be part of her team.
When I was asked to pick my favorite set to design with I picked one of my early faves designed by Julie Ebersole called Bokeh Dots. I just love the versatility of this set. It’s an abstract set, but very open to interpretation. I made a very “loose” wreath with it for my card today. And used another older die Brushstroke Peace for my centerpiece. All of the color is done with the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. *quick edit – Since there seems some confusion as to whether I embossed with gold or silver? I used PLATINUM!! ;)*
I love doing loose watercoloring like this. And beautiful abstract sets like Julie’s make my style of design so easy to work with.
I’m always looking forward to what new, fun, or inspirational designs and sets Ellen has found for us on the horizon. It truly is such a joy to be a part of her team and to partner with so many other wonderful talented ladies, too.
Happy Anniversary, Ellen. And thank you for opening your warm and comforting arms to me so many years ago at CHA and inviting me to be a part of your family. I love you!

On to your next stop!! That would be the fabulously talented Lea Lawson!!!! I know you’re going to be over the moon excited with what she has in store for you.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy and blessed Thanksgiving.
