Hello everyone, it’s Annette Green here today with my final post of the year for Susan’s Garden Design Team. It’s been a wonderful year working with Susan’s beautiful flower dies as well as many other Elizabeth Craft Designs products. I’ll surely miss it, but look forward to seeing all the new designs from this amazing company and hope to come back to visit as a guest designer in 2017. Today I’ve created a masculine card using Susan’s Carnation die to prove that you can use flowers on cards for men, too.

Halloween Elixir with Spooky PoinsettiasSeptember 27, 2016
Annette Green here today with Susan’s Garden design team to share a fun Halloween decor project. I recently received a whimsical (and tasty) bottle of wine from a good friend who knows how much I LOVE Halloween. We drank it up with our friends, and I immediately washed out the bottle and put it aside for a future project.
