Hi Everyone. Happy Easter Sunday. It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's Clean and Simple Week. I needed a baby card and used another one of the freebies that Lou got for me on a recent trip to Australia. This stamp and a few others came in one of the card crafting magazines. It's the cutest possible image and I decided to keep it really clean and simple. The only part of the ducks that I could paper piece were the wellies. So, I got some left over plaid and stamped out the... Read more →


Hi Everyone. I have a quick post for you tonight. I saw this great sketch across at Freshly Made and decided I liked it so much that I was inspired to make two cards. Tonight's card is the second card I made with the sketch. One of my favorite Altenew sets is the Build a Flower Magnolia and I decided it would really well as the left hand element. I stamped and colored it with my Copics and it gave me a very subtle look and I really liked it. However, once I had assembled the card, I decided it... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and she has a color challenge for us: These aren't colors I would generally put together simply because I dislike Calypso Coral! :-).

I also made a square card - mmmmmm... can't remember the last time I made a square card, but... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Susan's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a great code word for us: I decided to bring out an oldie - but goodie. Sadly, this company is no longer creating stamps, which is a pity as they had some good humorous stamps. I created this card for DD - now, it has to be said that she is not looking for a guy. Right now, she is concentrating on her career. However, I knew that she would appreciate the humor! :-) I started by die-cutting an oval and... Read more →


HI Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's a theme challenge - and what a theme :-) April 6th is American Tartan Day. I have to tell you, I didn't know it was Tartan Day. However, through my Mother's side of the family, I am part of the Clan Donald, so was very pleased to be able to highlight Tartan for our challenge this week. However..... I didn't have any MacDonald Tartan paper :-). This particular tartan is my favorite MacDonald Tartan: In case you are interested, you can find the... Read more →
