Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a theme challenge for us. Now.... this is the second time in a month that I have wished I had looked ahead at the Paper Players challenges before making my card. For challenge #195 I made this card, which was a clean and simple floral card. Challenge number #196 turned out to be a clean and simple floral theme and I had to make this card. If I had looked ahead I could have created a different card for challenge... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. This is going to be a quick post tonight! I saw a great sketch across at annabelle stamps and decided that it would be ideal to use with the elements from the Traveler stamp sets.

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday.

It's the Ronald McDonald set from the new 2014/2014 SU catalog called "Hello Love". It's full of great sentiments and, as I needed a wedding card, I decided that I would use this sketch - and the Hello Love set for my card. I really wanted... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I hope you all had a wonderful week and are ready and prepared for this long weekend. I know I am! It's the fabulously talented Vicki's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week. She has a great code word for us. I spent a fair amount of time thinking about what I would do for this challenge. Texture can take you in so many different directions. In the end, I settled on texture from stencils and then paired it with the smooth texture of card stock, a button and some silver cord. Before... Read more →
