Happy Sunday It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's sketch week! This sketch gave me the perfect excuse to ink up some die-cut dragonflies from The Greetery Curio Finds. I am obsessed with these dragonflies. They are one of my favorite finds of summer. If you ever buy these gorgeous dies, a tip is to ensure that you blend the inks on thee die-cuts while they are in position. They are so delicate it is easy to mess up the card stock when blending. So I make sure I use 110# card... Read more →

Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Fran's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge this week and here is her codeword: I don't know about you, but it is certainly beginning to look and feel like Autumn. Our trees are just starting to turn and ALL of our summer visitors have left for the southerly migrations. It won't be long before the Junco's have moved south to overwinter with us! I decided to go very clean this week and used my Greetery Fir & Foliage Stencils to create my focal element. I added three different shades of green and touches... Read more →

Happy Sunday It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's CLEAN and SIMPLE week.

I absolutely had to use my Knit Wits stencil to add some background... Read more →

Who even knew there was such a day! However, I had the PERFECT... Read more →

Happy Sunday It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week - and it's color week: Anyone who has been following my blog for a while will probably remember that purple is not my color. Oh... and neither is pink! However, the great thing about challenges is that they force you out of your comfort zone! For my 4th color I decided to add green as these colors felt very floral to me. I inked up a couple of stamps from Budding Beauty Summer from the Greetery. And yes.. you can see.... my favorite stencil made... Read more →
