Like the whimsy crab card & the angel fish card with its sentiment. My Daughter headed back to college to begin her Junior yr this morn & I'm already missing her. Need to go do some more crafting/stamping.

Embossed puzzle looks like a fun idea. I don't get TJ so I'll have to try and figure out on my own.
Faux patina looks like another good tutorial.
