BC, a Pinwheel, and the new issue

The rumors are true!  The August/September 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter was mailed on Wednesday, and the link to the issue is now available to subscribers (email me if you subscribe and you need your password, or if you would LIKE to subscribe and GET a password!). I am very happy with this issue -- it has 15 great tutorials, many of which are pretty easy -- you need easy in the summer, right?

You might notice that I am now taking pre-orders for CD8. There is a special for subscribers, too: $29.95 to renew your subscription for one year and pre-order the CD. Details are HERE for subscribers. Make sure to get your pre-order in before the end of August, so you can get your CD in the first "wave".  send me an email if you would like an invoice.

The card above was VERY easy. It features the Pinwheel Technique from the new August/September 2010 issue (which was contributed by Hetty Sanders). I love this technique!

Note that my card is black and white  - and red. This week's Blogger's Challenge was to use black and white with one other color. I wen pretty traditional with the red, but I can't help it -- it is one of my favorite combinations.  I haven't played for several weeks so I thought I would put this one out there today. All of the stamps used are from Stampin' Up!. 

Thanks for stopping by today -- have a great weekend!
