Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I have a huge treat tonight... well, it was for me :-) Because of this card that I made for Lou, I have the pleasure of being the guest designer across at Color Throwdown this week. YAY!

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. It's really late here, but I did want to pop in and share a card I made for the CaseThisSketch challenge this week. I'm back making cards for Cards for Hospitalized Kids and I saw this amazing set across at Hero Arts as part of their Monthly Card Kit and realized that Mermaids and girls were...well... a pretty cool combination. So, I used the sketch and some of the elements of the Hero Arts kit to create a card Here's the sketch I used the mermaid stamp and die - as well as the die for... Read more →
