Card No. 3 for my darling daughter out in Puerto Rico for a long 18 months! All I know from her emails is that she sure is working hard. Love that girl.
This darling set is from The Greeting Farm, it’s called Mega-Mini Amazing. So stinking cute and easy to color.
Again, card no. 2 ready to go out to my little cupcake, err< I mean, daughter the missionary. 🙂
I adore this layering stamp set from Stampin’ UP!, Sweet Cupcake…. I have used this so much!
Today is the first of a few simple cards I have made to send to my daughter. She is serving a full time mission for our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints) in Puerto Rico. She played Lacrosse all through Jr. High and High School and her nick name was T-Rex.. because she was little (short arms) but fierce. 🙂
Sometimes creating for with no purpose in mind is the most rewarding. I’ve been in a slump. to. say. the. least. I’m taking baby steps… today’s step is with one of my favorite mediums, fabric. to be specific, fat quarters, you know the ones that come in sets already. Easy peasy stuff. Enjoy. Fee free to contact me if you are interested in purchasing it. 🙂
Ready for your close up darling?
Today I am the luckiest of luckies. I received a box chuck full of Stampin’ Up! goodness from the new Occasions Catalog. Be sure to check it out and come back and visit for up and coming projects!
A super-quick tag for a baby shower this weekend…. isn’t this set darling! It’s called Happy Celebrations, there are tons of fun pieces.
Thank you all for your generous comments, my heart is full of creative love…. 🙂

For a little New Year’s fun I created a card using one of Stampin’ Up’s new sets, It’s a Celebration:
A crazy watercolor wash serves as the base to my bright white fireworks, while some subtly embossed fireworks pull the white background into the framework of the eye catching centerpiece.

It’s been literally ages. Forever. Too long. I made a card! I even made a little graphic to celebrate the day.
I used a really, really old set from #sweetstampshop, Out in Space. I believe I received this set when I won PaperCrafts Stamping Royalty. I’m not sure… but it just goes to show you that you don’t need the newest stamp sets to make a cute card.
A Stampin’ Up! set, Market Fresh, is front and center on my card today. I must be yearning for a warm spring and some fresh fruit… just looking at this card makes me hungry for strawberries.
Watercoloring seemed to be the perfect fit for this set. Giving the strawberries that “almost” perfectly ripe look was easily done with my Zig Clean Color Markers. I used water color paper for maximum blend-a-bilitiy without overworking the paper.
Twine is making a comeback of sorts in my card making. I seem to be using it quite a bet, especially the black and white. Happy creating my friends,
