Hi Everyone. I saw the color challenge across at Embellish magazine. Three colors that I generally do not combine. Well, you all know..... that's the reason I do challenges! The additional challenge - something vintage... well, I really wanted to use the French Foliage set for this color combination and decided to keep the layout clean and simple but add a couple of more vintage touches. I was a little concerned about how I would incorporate the green, especially as Garden Green is a color I so rarely use... however, when I started working with it - I realized what... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a great weekend. Me... it just wasn't long enough! :-) I did get to make 4 cards today - all of them very different. A halloween card, two Christmas cards, and a fall themed thank you card. Tonight's card, though, is for the Paper Players Challenge. I can't believe it is our 22nd challenge already! Ann was the hostess this week and challenged us with a recipe. The recipe? A punch, a designer series paper and a sentiment. Now.... you can use more - but the card had to incorporate those...

Hi Everyone. This is going to be a very quick post tonight. I do apologise for not posting last night, but Lou got home from his trip 2 hours later than scheduled and consequently, the night just ran away with me!

Ooooh.... it felt like a marriage made in heaven..... so......it gave me a great excuse to bring out my rhinestones.... and pearls! I decided it was about time my Beautiful Wings die saw the light of day. I then decided on a wedding card. Here's what I came up with Card recipe: Card stock: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla,...

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday night. Yep... It's hump day... almost the weekend. Tonight's card is one of those that I have made to send to my *mom*. I will be sharing a couple with you over the next few days. I will be packaging up a little collection and sending them off to my best friend, so that she can share them with her Mom when she feel it is appropriate. I couldn't help myself... I had to pull out the Funny Farm stamp again.... You may remember my last card - a birthday card for Al. Well, here's the... Read more →
