Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. Tonight is a monumental night for me - this is my 365th post! Yep, one whole year of posts. I know that I have missed a couple here and there, but I do post almost every day in the year. So, I am considering my 365th post as my Blogoversary! For tonight's card - for the 9th Paper Players challenge - I used Notably Ornate and Flores Suaves and En Francais. Oh! and some Newsprint DSP. It's a theme challenge this week and the theme chosen by LeAnne was VINTAGE. Well, I was really excited... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Friday night. How appropriate that I should be passing such a major milestone in the middle of showcasing the cards that you submitted for the OperationWriteHome card drive.

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday night. I hope you are all having a great week so far. Tonight's card uses two stamp sets - one new - and one old. The new set is Morning Cup and the old one is Favorite Thoughts. I've been wondering what to do with one of the quotes - and the Morning Cup set was the perfect set to use it with. It also allowed me to use some new colors - and my new wheel! Here's my Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron and Real Red confection! I really think this sentiment is perfect... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday night. Tonight's card was created from the Just-add-ink sketch for this week. I love the clean and simple feel of the sketch and really enjoyed playing with it. I suggest going along to look at the site to see the inspiration cards and the submission cards. Also, the design team have done a great tutorial on using crystal effects with re-inkers. I know you will fill that interesting. Be sure to read all the way through this post for information on the final numbers for our card drive - and announcement of the next card drive.... Read more →
