Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I hope you are all staying safe and well. This one is under the wire! I hadn't realized the festivefriday challenge finished today! I made today's card using this inspo list: I'm also playing along with the JAI challenge: I chose insects, yellow and alpha dies. Here's my card: I know you can't see it on the main photo - but I added some shimmer on the wings and on the letters: It was a great challenge and I had fun making my bee card. Another one that is going off to the seniors! I'll be... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's my turn to host the Paper Players challenge this week and it's color week: I decided to go with a color scheme that could be used for kids cards, masculine cards or feminine cards and I love the soft palette.

In this particular time, I believe we are much stronger together - even though we are all so far apart! Here's my card: I hope you will play along with us this week - we would... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. I don't know about you, but I am over the moon that it is Friday! For the past couple of weeks I have been unable to join in the fun and celebrate Freshly Made Sketches 400th anniversary.

Hi Everyone. Greetings from a warm and sunny (FINALLY) Minnesota. The temperature today is an outstanding 71 degrees and the sun is shining brightly. I know it won't stay that way for longer than today - but I intend to enjoy it for all that it is worth :-) I did get to spend a little time in my craft room today. I needed to make a card for the Paper Players challenge tonight and I went looking for a sketch. I found this great sketch across at . I love this sketch, but I couldn't get it to work...

Hi Everyone. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us: I started with a Smoky Slate base and stamped flowers from Altenew's Sweetest Peas with the darkest grey. I then colored the flowers with a few different pink pencils that are as close to Melon Mambo as I could get. I added the slightest touch of yellow to the base of the flowers, but the photographs are showing much more yellow/orange than there really is! Here's my card: I hope you will join us and play along.... Read more →
