Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I got the change to have a little fun time in my craft room and went looking for some challenges to use. I found this great sketch across at Sunday Stamps - and saw the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use yellow on my card.... Well, the minute I saw that I knew I had just the right goodies to use for the sketch! Here's the sketch: The Simon Says Stamp Monthly card kit for March was one of my all time favorites and one of the feature colors is yellow - a perfect fit... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch for us: I loved the oval with the banners and immediately knew the stamp set I would use.

Hi Everyone. Happy Thursday. I have another birthday card to share with you today. This time, I used this great sketch from across at retrosketches I love the speech bubble at the top of the card and knew that I could combine it with some fabulous Stampin' Up! DSP. For the sentiment, I used an old super cute - and really affordable - set from Papertrey ink called "Wonderful Words Birthday" I die cut the Birthday using Stampin' Up! Lost Lagoon card stock 3 times and layered them using Crystal Accents. I then used some Ranger inks in various shades... Read more →
