How important it is for us to recognize and celebrate our heroes and she-roes! ~Maya Angelou Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres. There is music in the midst of desolation And a glory that shines upon our tears. They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.

It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a Tic Tac Toe for us: For my card, I decided to go horizontally - straight across the top. Yellow. Birthday.

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday It's not often I get the chance to combine two challenges... but I saw this great sketch across at As You See It and a fabulous - and so out of my comfort zone - color scheme across at Just Add Ink and decided that they really needed to be combined! Although I absolutely LOVE blue... for some reason it isn't a color that I often use on my cards. It seems a masculine color, but I was determined to make a feminine card out of it and realized that with my new (very favorite) Enchanted... Read more →
