Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. We certainly did! I managed to get a couple of challenge cards done this weekend. I saw this great challenge across at cas-ual fridays and couldn't wait to play along. It's so rare that I actually make anything other than an A2 card, that it was wonderful to take on a challenge that forced me to get out of that rut. I had so much fun playing with a different size of card, that I made two different cards! I really wanted to keep it clean and simple. For... Read more →

I loved that Pam used lots of shapes and punches on her cards, light distressing, lots of ribbon and hand coloring. I looked at some of Pam's color choices and thought... NOW... why on earth didn't I ever think to combine those colors, they work so well together! So, thank you Pam,... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. The fabulous Anne Marie has a great color challenge for us this week Color challenges are always the hardest challenges for me, as I really am stuck in my old ways with colors. I don't tend to lean towards brights or pastels. I'm really a neutrals or gem color person! So, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point werea real challenge for me. However, I had the perfect excuse to use them as we needed a baby boy card. I realized that I didn't have a baby set anymore! I donated Baby Bundle to charity when we... Read more →
