I have been surfing the web looking for card making sites to get some creative ideas. I found this wonderful blog by Cheryl Moody ( http://lifesrailroadtracks.blogspot.com/ ) who uses a lot of graphics from PCCrafter.com, also one of my favorite sites for graphics. Since I'm pretty new to card making I used some of the same quotes and graphics as Cheryl and whatever else I had on hand. They say "practice makes perfect" so I'll just have to keep practicing.
The first two are graphics by Laurie Furnell and the last one is by Susan Seals. If you use graphics often, go check out PCCrafters selection. They also have a great message board where you can meet nice people and get many creative ideas.
I'll be back with more of my practice soon.
