DT Thursday

And time for you to guess which of our Design Team members is hostessing for today's DT Thursday.  She is extremely talented and she loves working with shapes and colors.  In one of her recent posts she shared a little about how she ends up with her beautiful results:

"I usually pick the image first. Then I scrounge though my patterned paper stash to see what grabs my eye and might pair up nicely with my stamp choices. I use the printed paper as my guide to choose corresponding colors of card stock that will serve to create the remaining layers and card base. Next I will color the image. I use my paper choices to determine what color markers/pencils I use, trying to match colors as closely as I am able. Then I sort of plan out the card base... this is always changing though! A few friends that have seen me make a card from start to finish can vouch for this! I will arrange, rearrange and change! So the original idea sometimes evolves to a completely different card in the end! I have to say that is my favorite part!"

Have you guessed yet?  If you follow her blog and read her posts you might be guessing, "that's Jenny Gropp," and you would be right!.  The sneak peek of what she has for us to see this week is below.  You can see her full post HERE!  Thanks, Jenny, for the lovely card and post! Don't miss out you all, and let her know you were there too!
