  34. I'm a new card maker, and I love using deco foil and other Therm O Web products (sewing projects too), even bought a laser printer just so I could use primarily for foiling - although my husband doesn't know that. ;) Although I'm not much of a colorist (learning!), I do have a few of the Ai stamps. They're just too cute/funny to by-pass. Really enjoy looking at all the posted cards. So much creative inspiration!
