Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and I have a tic-tac-toe challenge for you. I decided to go straight across the bottom: Pink, Leaves/Leaf, Flower. I began with one of my favorite Altenew sets - Amazing You. I stamped and die cut the leaves and one of the flowers and colored them with some Polychromos pencils to add detail. I prepared the background with a stencil and some Novo Mousse. Yes.... again :-) I love the subtle texture and shine it gives to the base of a card. Once the mousse... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's my pleasure to host the Addicted to CAS challenge this week and my code word is: there are many ways to go with this word, but I decided to go with a spilt coffee feel and this card is for my dearest hubby who has been gone for the last week.

Of course I had to stamp on the inside:-)... Read more →

The sketch is a very unusual sketch and really made me think hard. When I saw the photo inspiration at Time Out, I realized that the two elements on the sketch would work beautifully with butterflies. The clock on the wall on the photo inspiration got me thinking about my clock stencil from Tim Holtz. Once those ideas came together - the rest was easy. I used the clock... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a sketch for us. It's a very versatile sketch and you can go with so many different genre of card, but I decided to do a fairly clean and simple take on the sketch. I began with a strip of SSS woodgrain cardstock and adhered that to my card base. I cut a stitched rectangle for the focal element and stamped the dots from the Dragonfly Dreams set in the top left and bottom right corners with a soft grey... Read more →
