Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I hope you are all having a great weekend. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us: I wasn't sure where to go with this sketch and it's all because I have a thing about squares.... I don't know what it is.... something in my little brain, for sure! I rarely use squares on a card and, when I do, it's generally as a result of a challenge. Well, that's what challenges are all about - taking us outside of our comfort zone. I... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and I have a clean and simple challenge - with a little twist :-) Isn't Nance's badge fabulous? She has also done an amazing job of modernizing and updating our blog header and badges. Amazingly talented lady :-) Tonight's card too me much longer than it should have. Why? Well... apart from the fact that I had absolutely no idea where I was going with the card. None. Zip. Nada. Zilch. I sat there at my crafting desk...... just looking out of the window. Why?...

Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I hope you are all having a great week. At the end of last year I promised myself that I would start to use all of the mixed media materials that I had purchased in the hope that I was going to - somehow - become an expert at mixed media! Couple of problems with that: I hate getting my hands dirty I hate getting anything sticky on my hands (including cake mixture) I'm constantly washing paint palettes, brushes - and my hands - and it gets exhausting going backwards and forwards to the sink every...

Hi Everyone, happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us: YAY!!! I was so happy when I saw this challenge as I realized I could use my new favorite color combo - black, white and silver! It was also the perfect color combination to create a card to celebrate the anniversary of my besties - Pam and John. So.... you two.... we hope you have a wonderful anniversary - this one is for you! I began with a piece of white cardstock that I covered... Read more →
