Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. I hope you are all having a great weekend so far. Well, it's Saturday night - and you know that means it's the night for my Paper Players card. This week LeAnne has a challenge for us that is perfect for this time of the year. It's a theme challenge. I decided to try a new technique that I first saw on the demo only side of Stampin' Up! It's called the faux mother of pearl technique. It's really cool as the colors change in the light - just as mother of pearl does. It's... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday night. I thought the title of tonight's post was perfect - especially considering what is going on across the pond in good old Blighty tomorrow! A blushing bride who just had to believe that her dashing prince would finally pop the question and make her a princess - and a queen in waiting! Pretty awesome, really!

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! It's rare that I get the chance to do more than one or two challenges in a week, but I saw this sketch across at Waltzingmouse stamps and decided it was time to get out some of the fabulous nestie friendly stamps that they sell. The card that I chose as the headliner card for the CAS challenge at the Paper Players last week was yellow, black and white. I never make a card using those colors, but am always inspired when I do. So, I channeled Theresa and... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. Thanks to all of you who left comments on my Sail Away card last night. It almost didn't sea/see (ha... ha... ha..) the light of day! I really wasn't happy with it until I finished putting it together. At one point I had made up my mind to just finish it because I had putzed around with it so much. But don't you know.... once it was altogether, I decided I really did like it! Saturday is the Paper Players challenge reveal night. This week Lesley has a fabulous sketch for us. Here's the sketch:... Read more →
