Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a Tic-Tac-Toe for us. Once I had made my mind up to go left and vertical: beach, texture and enamel dots, I needed sketch. So I went to casethissketch and saw this great sketch: Once I knew I was going with a beach theme, I pulled out an old Simon Says Stamp card kit stamp set and decided to have fun with some DSP and flip-flops. The texture part of the card came from some woodgrain card stock that I... Read more →

Hi everyone. Happy Monday. Well, I did get to spend some time in my craft room yesterday - a good place to escape the heat and humidity!

It's the very talented Bhavanna's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and she has a great code word for us: I knew that there were several ways I could go with this challenge; welcome baby; welcome to the neighborhood... but I decided on a welcome... home card. Lou travels so much, so I thought a little welcome home card would be ... well... welcome! I started off by diecutting a piece of Recollections 110# cardstock with the My Favorite Things die. Normally I use this for a... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. Hope you are all having a great start to your week. I wanted to share a quick post with you tonight. I made another two cards using the Kuretake Starry Colors watercolor paints that I first showcased on my Paper Players card on Sunday. I used the same dragonfly stamp but this time used the gold paint for the dragonfly and kept the rest of the card really simple. I used normal card stock as the paints require very little water. Here's my card: I am really in love with these paints and can't wait to... Read more →
