Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. I'm late posting the 3rd card I made with this fabulous new set because I worked yesterday from 6.30am to nearly 10pm! I did want to share card number 3 made with this very versatile set. I think you have probably guess by now that I am in love with this new verdigris embossing powder from Ranger and I really love the variation in color it creates. Why I like this version of the card.

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I have another card made with the fabulous Ornamental Pine and today's card is a very different color scheme to the one in last night's post.

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday, hope you are all having a great weekend. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a clean and simple with a twist. Well, as you all know, I am never one to shy away from a clean and simple challenge:-) But, I wasn't quite sure where to begin making a CAS card for a child. Then... I remembered I had the Hero Arts OWH set and knew it was time to bring out my owl for a little inky love. When I opened up my stamp packet,... Read more →
