Glitter Queens Blog Hop – All About Men

It’s time for the Glitter Queens Blog Hop and this month it’s all about men!

Dahlia Fold Flower – Picture Tutorial

Dahlia Fold Flower

I promised a picture tutorial for making a Dahlia Fold flower and today’s the day!

Tomorrow my email subscribers will be receiving a PDF version of the directions for making the flower and the directions for today’s card. If you haven’t signed up yet be sure to do it today so you won’t miss out.  You can find the sign up form on the sidebar of my blog where it says “Keep in Touch.”  (more…)
