Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. I hope you are all having a great week. Well, the one thing I have learned in the last couple of weeks is that the less time you spend creating, the less things you have to show on your blog! As I have spent almost no time in my craft room the last few weeks, I really don't have very much to show you. However, I do still have some of the fabulous swap cards to show you and decided it was high time I shared with you a couple of gorgeous cards made with the... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I have something completely different for you tonight. A little while ago I spoke about my urge to do some "art journaling". I really wanted to try using my supplies in a different way. HOWEVER, "ART" isn't something that fits into my vocabulary. I am, by definition, a card maker. I love making cards. If you had asked me 7 years ago if I would be blogging and sharing cards that I had spent hours making by hand I would, absolutely, have said NO!!!! An emphatic NO! Me. Paper? Scissors? Inks? Pens? NO! NEVER! Yet, because... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch challenge for us.

I do think it would have helped to balance the element in the top left if I had done it :-) I have had so little... Read more →

Hi Everyone Happy Tuesday. It's been a couple of weeks since I finished my stint as the Featured Designer at Merry Mondays and this is the first time I have been able to play along with one of their challenges since then. When I saw the challenge I knew that this is one that I couldn't ignore :-) I am TOTALLY a traditional colors Christmas card maker. I find it VERY difficult to use anything other than green and red or white and blue, so this challenge was going to take me waaaaay outside of my comfort zone. I looked... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a CAS challenge with a twist. I have a Memory Box stamp that I bought many years ago and still love to use it on CAS Christmas cards. I knew it would be perfect for this challenge. I paired it with some Silver embossing powder and Stampin' Up! silver foil specialty card stock. I really like the look of the silver foil card stock behind the focal image as it frames the image without overpowering it, and, of course, I... Read more →
