Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabulous Susan's turn to host our Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a great code word for us: I decided to bring out an oldie - but goodie. Sadly, this company is no longer creating stamps, which is a pity as they had some good humorous stamps. I created this card for DD - now, it has to be said that she is not looking for a guy. Right now, she is concentrating on her career. However, I knew that she would appreciate the humor! :-) I started by die-cutting an oval and... Read more →


HI Everyone. Happy Sunday. It's the fabulous LeAnne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge and it's a theme challenge - and what a theme :-) April 6th is American Tartan Day.

I needed a sketch and decided to make a second card with the great Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week. I hope they will forgive me that I put the side panel on the left so that it fit with my die-cut floral :-) Before I share tonight's card with you, I'd like to point out that the world is about to turn on its axis!!...

HI Everyone. Happy Saturday. This is my second post today :-). I'm popping in to share a card I made for The Card Concept and Freshly Made Sketches Here's the sketch from FMS: and here's the inspiration photo from Card Concept: As soon as I saw the inspiration photo from the Card Concept I knew what I was going to do. I pulled out a very old piece of photo DSP from Stampin' Up! and blended Broken China ink over the top of it to give it a similar color to the inspiration photo. I then stamped and fussy cut...
