Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I had fun playing along with a sketch challenge from cardabilities and the inspiration from casestudy. I was really inspired by the colors and the floral theme from casestudy, and loved the sketch across at cardabilities. I changed the color from red to pink.... what I had in mind seemed to fit so much better with pink than with red. I decided it was time to pull out some of the crepe filter papers from SU that have been sitting in my cupboard for yonks! I played around with some Melon Mambo reinker and rubbing alcohol...

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you all had a great start to the week. Whilst I was playing in my craft room yesterday, I found a new challenge to play along with sketchbook saturday. In my latest box of goodies from Stampin' Up! was some DSP I had ordered - Birthday Basics. What I hadn't seen when I initially looked at the DSP online was that it had some paper with bicycles on it. Once I opened it, I knew it would be perfect for cards for Lou (who doesn't get to see enough of his bicycle these days,... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I have a card that I made for two challenges today. The inspiration challenge at MoxieFabWorld and the theme at AddictedtoCAS. I was originally tempted to do a nautical theme for the Moxie inspiration photo, but realized I could change it up and make it a holiday card instead.

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday night. The fabulous Ann has a wonderful challenge for you all this week and, immediately I saw the challenge, I knew I was going to use one of my new SU goodies.......

Anyway, here's Ann's challenge: Ah..ha... a one layer card.... always tough, but fabulous for posting! I had seen a card made by one of the concept artists... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. I have a new set to showcase tonight - Yippee Skippee. This is one of the all-attendee give-aways that we got at convention this year. When I saw the sketch across at casethissketch I decided it was time to make a card for my honey. Now, all my loyal blog readers know that he has just about painted the entire house since we moved in just over a year go. In fact, he's got just a couple of rooms to go. I am really grateful that has done this, and given up valuable cycling time! Which... Read more →
