Too Sexy… in the Outback!

Hello! Today I'm with Get Creative Challenges for the start of their final challenge for this year. This month's theme is "anything but a card" so I thought making a calendar stand would be great for my inspiration and would make a cute little Christmas gift as well. To start off, I die cut my … Continue reading Too Sexy… in the Outback!

Hello! Today is the start of the 7th challenge held by Le Ann's World 101 Digital Stamps.

We don't celebrate Halloween that much in Australia, even though the shops wish and advertise … Continue reading Magical Birthday Greetings

Just A Garden Nap

Hello! It's my time in the Kitty Bee Designs Spotlight and this month I've created something a little different to feature Kitty Bee Designs' sweet Sleepy Little Love Bug. To start this card, I found a simple "blue to green" image online (a background screen for a smartphone!) and adjusted the color to create a … Continue reading Just A Garden Nap

Under The Sea, With Kitty Bee

Hello! It's the start of another Kitty Bee Designs Aloha Friday Challenge and this challenge has a fun theme of "under the sea". I thought it was a good opportunity to play with a reasonably new technique to make an underwater background, where Distress Oxide inks are smooched onto glossy cardstock. I followed this My … Continue reading Under The Sea, With Kitty Bee

Kitty Litter – Creative Fingers Challenge #144

Hello! Today, I'm sharing a quick card I made for the new Creative Fingers Challenge. I've chosen to use a cute little digi set called Kitties from this month's sponsor, Maria Medal Illustrations.

DT Spotlight – Hip Hop Froggie

Hello! It's my turn over at Kitty Bee Designs' Team Spotlight and this month I thought I'd get tropical. I've created a "frog party" to highlight Kitty Bee Designs' Hip Hop Froggie, who looks like he's having so much fun. To get this design to work, I had to first start with the card itself. … Continue reading DT Spotlight – Hip Hop Froggie

The theme this challenge is for "Kiddy Cards" and I thought I'd make a special Christmas card for a young recipient.

On A Street With No Name

Hello! Recently, I have had several cards "on the back burner" that just wouldn't come together, at least to my satisfaction. They are the cards where the idea is sound but, no matter what I try, they just don't look right. This is one of those cards. I bought a sheet of car stickers, thinking they … Continue reading On A Street With No Name
