Hi Everyone. I have a quick post for you tonight. Inspired By has a wonderful theme challenge: It's obvious from my card how I was inspired..... the dark brown and the texture and, of course, the yellow flowers. I used some Altenew bark card stock for the base and the image is from Stampendous. I stamped the flower image and colored it with my Copic markers. I then fussy cut around each of the flowers and stems and die cut a piece of vellum to look like a vase. I know you can't see it, but I did color the... Read more →


Hi Everyone Happy Tuesday. I have a quick post for you tonight using the fabulous sketch across at As you See It I received a new set from My Favorite Things in the post last week.

When one of my cards is chosen as a featured project - it is... Read more →

Even though you can't see it, there are score lines above and below the stamped images and along the bottom. It looks like in real life, but TOTALLY disappears in photographs! To create my card, I used a stamp set from... Read more →


Hi Everyone. I have a quick post for you tonight :-) I saw this great sketch across at As You See It and knew immediately what I wanted to do My friends know that I have a slightly strange sense of humor ... you know. that British sarcastic type of humor - and the Katzelcraft Les Cats Russes really fits well into my humor. Especially when the images are paired with unusual sentiments! I mean.... take a look at this cat... doesn't he just cry out for an unusual sentiment? You might notice that I added a little gel pen... Read more →
