Hi Everyone. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us: I started with a Smoky Slate base and stamped flowers from Altenew's Sweetest Peas with the darkest grey. I then colored the flowers with a few different pink pencils that are as close to Melon Mambo as I could get.

Here's my card: I hope you will join us and play along.... Read more →

Hi Everyone Happy Saturday. Greetings from the depths of cold in what has felt like Siberia this week! Tonight's card is for our AddictedtoCAS Challenge. It's the turn of the very talented Vicki to host our challenge and she has a code word that I loved :-) How could I not enjoy playing around with that code word? I decided to go REALLY clean and simple on this card. I brought out my old Hey Chick set from Stampin' Up! (I will NEVER get rid of this set!). This silly chick makes me smile everytime I see him. I was... Read more →
