Happy Friday. Well, today I managed to make a card just for the fun of it. After finishing up over 100 cards for a local medical facility, I decided I was in need of a clean and simple card using some of the new goodies that I arrived whilst I was on my world cruise. I found a great sketch across at Freshly Made Sketches and, so, for the first time in nearly 7 months, I managed to make a card for a challenge site! It was the perfect sketch to use the Cherry Blossoms stencil and die set from... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Claire's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's sketch week. This sketch gave me the opportunity to bring out a new set I got before I went away called Dancin' Monsters Birthday Dragon (thanks Karen!) and the dies are from Spellbinders.

Happy Friday and greetings from a warm and sunny Minnesota. It's another INSPO challenge across at Festive Friday and this week celebrates all of those wonderful Dad's in our life. As my Dad has been gone since 1985, I decided to make a masculine card using elements of the INSPO list instead. This is another card that will be donated to one of our local medical facilities for use by the residents. I used the Rock Star set from Stampin' Up! that I ordered just before I went on my trip and this was the first time I had inked... Read more →

Happy Sunday It's the fabulous Anne Marie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has such a fun Clean and Simple Theme for us. Oh... and this week I managed to remember that it was Clean and Simple!!! Anne Marie's theme was a great excuse for me to pull out one of my old favorites from Paper Rose Studios called Laughing Animals. Here's a sneak peek: And here's Anne Marie's theme: I have lots of crafting supplies but I really don't have a lot that are in the funny category, so this old set tends to... Read more →
