Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. For reasons I'll share with you on Friday, this is going to be a very short blog post. Let's just say it involves Drs with pins and leave it at that for now :-) While I was crafting this weekend, I made a card using the sketch over at CaseThisSketch I needed a birthday card and decided to use my new Ellen Hutson purchase. I was tempted to color it but wanted to go really simple. I embossed it using the lawn fawn blush embossing powder and then die cut with the matching die. I di-ecut... Read more →


Hi Everyone Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's color week: Now,, I have to be honest... these colors scared me! They are such bright colors - and I didn't have two of them in my stash! So, I had to make do. I had this image in my head using two old SU favorites - Beautiful You and Mediterranean Moments.

Hi Everyone Happy Monday. I made a card for the challenge across at Time Out - I loved the idea of the playful theme: I decided to have a little fun with a Penny Black set called Joyful Holidays.

I was staring at the sketch on my craft desk when I noticed a piece of patterned paper that had been sitting there since I made my last card. Once I saw what was on the paper, I realized that I had the perfect stamp and die for it :-) Here's the paper: Yep... .coffee beans! So the vertical... 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 don't have Balmy Blue in my stash, so had to make do. It took me a little while to determine what I was going to do - I SO wanted to do florals, but decided not to go all in on them. I also made a square card - mmmmmm... can't remember the last time I made a square card, but... Read more →
