Happy Father's Day


Hi everyone!  Hope your summer is off to a great start! 

I'm trying something new this summer.  I signed up for a 1/2 share in a CSA.  Each week for 21 weeks I get fresh vegetables and fruit from a local farmer.  This weekend was my second pickup and I'm LOVING all the fresh vegetables so far!


This card was inspired by a couple challenges.  The layout was inspired by this week's sketch 450 by Mojo Monday.



The color scheme was inspired by this week's color challenge PPA303 at Pal's Paper Arts


I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:

Happy Birthday


Hi everyone! We've been painting the walls in the basement this spring so I've been a displaced paper crafter for over a month now. The exciting part about having moved everything out of my craft room was that before moving back in I was able to imagine my space new again. I took the opportunity to do some spring cleaning, weed out the things I no longer use and arrange everything differently as I moved back into my room.

The best part is that I'm all moved back in and ready to create again. I made this card for my mother-in-laws birthday which is just a couple weeks away. The patterned paper is by MME. I love cards that have the white speckles on them and I tried doing that with my stickles but it didn't quite turn out as I thought it would. So I'm in need of instruction how to and what product to use to add those lovely white spots on my cards.


This card was inspired by the Always Playing With Paper inspirational challenge and Mojo Monday Sketch 448.

20 Below Zero


Hi everyone!  This is a layout I created of my husband and I celebrating our 24th anniversary.  We set our camera on a stand and used the self timer to take the photos.  Our anniversary seems to fall on the coldest day of the year which is the story I wanted to capture.  I used some patterned papers I had in my stash by Artic Frog.  I really liked the winter theme yet the red and pink give it a romantic feel. 

The snowflakes are chipboard pieces I painted white and coated with shimmery sprinkles to make them sparkle.  I used journaling strips to tell the story and added some blue gems to finish the layout.

Nine Lives by Paper Smooches


Hi everyone! This is another card I made for the SCS Cards for a Cause February mission.

On this card I was really playing with ways to add texture and design without adding bulk to the card. I wrapped some white twine around the card base, punched holes at the top and bottom of the image and fussy cut two small paw prints.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
