This image is quite detailed so I started by printing it as large as my generic large oval frame die would allow, without it interfering with … Continue reading In The Spotlight…

Time To Party with Bloobel Stamps

Hello! Today I'm joining Bloobel Digi Stamps and I've created a card using one of their new release digi stamps called Party Toot. To me, this party girl looked like she was one of the loudest at the party, both in sound and sight, so I decided to color her in some pretty loud colors … Continue reading Time To Party with Bloobel Stamps

Chalk n Stock Challenge December 2017

Kitty Bee Aloha Friday Challenge #105

Hello! Today is time for mid inspiration with Kitty Bee Designs' Aloha Friday Challenge #105. The theme this challenge is for "Kiddy Cards" and I thought I'd make a special Christmas card for a young recipient.

A Pick-Up Full Of Love + Die Cutting Stencil Plastic

Hello! My parents are reaching a major milestone this month, celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary! Of course, I had to make something special for the event and the usual, mature looking florals just didn't seem to accommodate my father, as well as my mother. Flowers on a card for my father just doesn't suit him. … Continue reading A Pick-Up Full Of Love + Die Cutting Stencil Plastic
