Happy 10th Blogiversary Jenn Shurkus!!!

Happy Tuesday and welcome! I am super excited as I am getting to participate in my good friend Jenn Shurkus' 10th Blogiversary! She has been celebrating all month long.  If you don't know her (or even if you do), be sure to stop by her web site to her amazing cards and mixed media creations.  She is an amazing teacher... which I was able to experience first hand back in March.

Jenn introduced me to watercolouring and, if you are a regular around here, you'll know I've been playing around with it a lot lately.  Here's one of my favourites of hers....

I created something similar with some slightly different Distress Inks and some Hero Arts stamps. It is so fun!  I want to improve my blending so will keep practicing... this isn't the last time you'll see this technique on my blog.  She demonstrates it really well in this great video tutorial.

Jenn has some great giveaways happening!  Some amazing sponsors have donated terrific prizes!  You can get in on all the fun by entering your creation inspired by something that Jenn created over at the Blogiversary Link. Take a look at the Pinterest board of Jenn's creations, something is sure to inspire you! 

Just have to include a picture from my most recent visit with Jenn.... she is so fun, talented and super inspiring!  So lucky to have her as a friend.

Thanks for stopping by and please run over to check out all the fun happening at Jenn's. Have a terrific day.
