Margaret Van Vliet shared the really neat new Chalkboard Paper and Color Box Chalk Ink, Big On You stamp set; Flower Patch stamp set and Flower Fair Framelits.
 I have to admit, so sorry Margaret, that my son knocked over my drink onto this card and some others I was working on. The upside to this - discovered that new Ink and Paper are REALLY durable!!! This is the photo I took AFTER the water had been mopped up, the regular cardstock did absorb some of the water and warped. That Chalkboard Paper is hardy stuff though, a big puddle on it and not a wrinkle or warp. The yellow ink of the sentiment did dab off when I was drying it, but so little that you can't really even tell! Color me impressed! And embarrassed. One should know better than to have kids and liquid around projects. Here is her fun and fantastically durable card:

Last, but definitely not least, Lorraine Toll shared a shimmery butterfly card. She used Basic Butterflies stamp set; Gorgeous Grunge stamp set; Doilies; Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon; Butterflies Thinlits; Banner Thinlits; and Vanilla Shimmer Spritz. Really lovely with that pop of color!
