About The Episode

Episode archive posted on April 19, 2021

Episode #57 was a blast with Ink It Up with Jessica’s Jessica Taylor! Before the show, Jessica really studied the parameters hard to determine her veto. She chose the element “Car(s) and/or Truck(s)”, and for the first time – the wheel landed on the vetoed element! What FUNN! Another FUNN twist is the fact that Jessica will be back on Tuesday for our Episode #57 Contributor Showcase as we review the over SEVENTY submissions! I’m looking forward to spending more time with her and your cards.

Episode #57 also got Patty Beck over her 52 week journey of consecutive submissions hump! Hats off and cue the parade! Well done, Patty! I think we are all so proud of your commitment, encouragement, and inspiration as we have been watching your accomplishment! Will Patty take a week off? Will she be back next week? Time will tell. All I know is, congratulations are in order and, Patty, kiss your brain from all of us at Craft Roulette!
