Hi Everyone. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and I have a Tic Tac Toe challenge for you. I always love the TTT challenges as they create an amazing variety of cards in the gallery and, if you are looking for some inspiration - just check out the fabulous cards from our design team. Here's the challenge: I decided to go straight across the middle - die cuts, girly and pink! I began by die-cutting a heart shape with masking paper and masked out an area on my Tim Holtz Heart stencil. I think used... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I am so close that we are half way through the work week and on count-down to the weekend! Oh.... and the temps reached the 30s here today! Double reason to celebrate.

Hi Everyone. Hope you are all having a great start to your weekend. It's the fabulous Doni's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has color theme for us. It's a perfect code word for those of us looking to create Valentine's cards....but.... it need not be confined to Valentine's. What's wrong with sending a card to your loved one - friend - or family member - anytime of the year to remind them that you love them? I decided to change up my card, add some sparkle, some texture and some glimmer ... just... Read more →
