Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's tic-tac-toe week. I always love our tic-tac-toe weeks as they provide so much scope for so many different cards. After seeing the board I was inspired to bring out my Dancin' Birthday Monsters dies from Spellbinders. Oh, these dies are so much fun. Here's a sneak peek: Oh, these little guys just make me smile! Here's LeAnne's tic-tac-toe board: I went straight across the top: stars/stripes. bling and blue. The stars/stripes comes from the background stencil I used. It's a stencil from Alexandra... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Ann's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's sketch week. Ann's creative sketch immediately reminded me of a set I bought from The Greetery several years ago called Curio Findings. I have three different sets for three different seasons.

Happy Friday. It's another INSPO challenge at Festive Friday this week and we have a great INSPO list for you. I was inspired to use some brand new goodies from Alexandra Renke that are part of the Pen Pal collection. I just fell in love with this die set. It filled me with nostalgia and I just had to have it. Today's card is going off to my bestie but, with the power of the internet, she will see the card here on my blog before she gets in in hand! Here's a sneak peek: And here is our INSPO... Read more →

Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a..... errrr..... I forgot to fully read the challenge...... Clean and Simple challenge for us this week. I was in such a rush to catch up on cards after 5 months off that I didn't read the challenge and missed the Clean and Simple bit altogether - until I came to write this blog post! I'm busy making kids cards and saw the encouragement part of LeAnne's challenge and thought I would use the Kitty Hugs die and stamps from Spellbinders and... Read more →
