Your HOW old?

This card was created because I participated in a stash swap. The stash swap had a ton of fun stuff but I was itching to get the copics rolling. I loved coloring this image! I think it is a Tilda image but I don't really know (if someone does please let me know). I used echo park paper, prima flowers and plain ribbons and lace to tie it all together....oh pardon the pun:). I must quickly finish this post as I need to finish hiding the Easter eggs...lol. Happy Easter to Everyone!


I have news........

BUT I am not allowed to say anything yet.....oh how I want to BUT I am just not allowed!

I am really happy to announce that returning in April will be the only way I can tell you, until then...

Enjoy the creations....

Also, FYI I have been down for 5 days with a flu, I am hoping it is over and today can resume back to 'normal'!



Just inchin' by to say HI

Making cards is an obsession! OK I am not new to this thought because I scrapbook; however, I am newer to card making. Sometimes I have notices I like to add frill and others just straight forward. This card ended up being clean and simple but fun to put together!

I am having trouble remembering where the digi came from (and by what designer) but it is cute! I am entering it on the cupcake blog as their challenges inspire all kinds of beautiful creations! I used colorbok Cardstock ( both green and black), technique Tuesday ruled line stamp, white embossing powder, watercolor paints, scraps of patterned paper,jute rope and stampin up postage edge punch.


Gift Card Holders

This project was not only fun but super easy! I loved that the cards were just a few minutes to make and the water coloring was a fun evening activity. I used some images from stampin up turtle and co. And their Little friends collection. I also used an image (boy with balloon) from Penny Black. This idea came from a utube video from Kristina Werner (she totally rocks)!

When they are opened some have twine to keep them closed while others have double sided tape to peel off once a card is placed inside. I used the tiny attacher from Tim Holtz to securely keep the sides attached. As Kristina noted they would fit quite easily inside a card to dress up the occasion. With Easter, Graduation, Mothers and Father's Day all approaching it is an easy solution to a gift idea!

Cheers to all!


Precious and few are Friends like you

This card was created to do a challenge at All that Scraps. The challenge was to paper piece something new or an old favourite. There is not a stamp from All That Scraps that I have met that didn't become a favourite! Honey is standing under an umbrella and it made me think of some rough times a friend is going through. It's incredible when a friend gives you an unexpected gift such as a homemade card!

The color scheme followed the previous one (happy hippo birthday!) I worked on them at the same time and purple is such a nice spring color. I used glossy accents to make raindrops and a mud puddle. Doing this project made me remember how much I enjoyed paper piecing in the past.

Hippo's Sudsy Birthday

One of my dearest friends birthday is coming soon and for some reason when I seen this Dustin Pike Digi I immediately thought of her! She has a wonderful joie de vie! The funny thing is she doesn't drink so the suds really are for a warm bath! The sentiment came from a random website but it fit because we are both getting to the middle age zone...lol!

This card will be entered in Dustin Pike's challenge to use pastels. I found it more difficult to find paper in the pastel shades as it is not really a color scheme I am drawn to. But, I think she sure is cute ( I paper pieced the hippo). Colorbok Cardstock, creative memories, spellbinders, twinery twine, not sure where the patterned paper came from and copic used to color.

Swinging By to Say HI

I made this card for the c.c Designs challenge. It was fun to make as I got to create a fun scene. I love c.c. Images and have a ton of digis to use! I am very new to the copic world and from one image to the next I am learning....I think the big thing is to keep practicing! The girl Honey, the tree, bees and even the fence are all about C.C. Designs. Hers to another fun filled year of their products!

Cheers y'all


Easter bunny and Flower

These two 3x3 cards were fun to make! They both use stamps from stampin up. The one with the flower used scraps of paper. Cut 1 inch wide- it was a super great way to use scraps and have a great little notecard ready for a quick personal note. The Easter rabbit was fun to color and I used stampin up watercolored crayons. They are so easy to use and the color is so intense!

Hope everyone has a hoppy kinda day!

All Things Grow Better with Love post- it note pad

The bees and fence came from All that Scraps, whom has another bunch of wonderfully gifted illustrators!
