manic monday cards

good afternoon everyone!
so again i am a day late with posting the card girls cards, i am sorry! this weekend was crazy!

i am trying to mix things up so i gave the card girls a challenge
use black & white as your main color but use another color to make it pop
everyone did such a great job!

Our guest designer this time around is Diane Davies

I am married and a SAHM of 2 children. My daughter Kaitlyn is 8 years old and has Down syndrome and a son Austin who is almost 6. I have been scrapbooking for over 8 years and started stamping and card making a little over a year ago. I teach classes at a LSS and really enjoy it.
