Mr. & Mrs.

I'm joining in the current challenge at Cardabilities this week.  Love this sketch.


There's a lot of silver going on today.  It's pretty but hard to photograph.  
I didn't have a silver doilie so I used Heidi Swapp's color shine in Tinslel to make it silver.  It worked great and added a nice shimmer to the card.  Silver paper is from Die Cuts With a View.  Flowers and leaves are from Prima.  Sticker is from SRM We've got your Sticker/Forever.

Thanks so much for dropping by.

Happy Life.

If you haven't checked out Virginia's View Challenge blog, you have to head over there!!  Virginia from Yes, Virginia just started this challenge blog in March.  The first challenge is water coloring and it has taken off like no tomorrow!!  Oh my.  The entries for the challenge are really so fabulous and so inspirational that I know I'm going to spend a lot of time going from link to link enjoying all the glorious creations.

So I had to join in.

The stamp is from American Crafts colored  with Twinkling H2O's from LuminArte.  Sticker is Sticker Sentiments (Life is Good) from SRM.  Embossing folder is from Stampin' Up!

So go check it out, the cards and the inspiration are just gorgeous.  Thanks Virginia, can't wait for the next challenge you come up with!

Thanks for dropping by,

...and to my husband...if he ever checks the blog...I meant to color outside the lines!! :)

Happy Birthday.


It's been a while, hasn't it?  No real explanation.  Perhaps it's winter hibernation...

Anyway, it's good to be back and today I'm joining in with CAS-ual Fridays blog for their Shades of Gray challenge.

Here's my card.

The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye (Chalk Studio),  The stamp is from PTI, everything else is from my stash.  I heat embossed the frame and the flower with Zing Embossing Powder (Powder shade), I painted the medallion with DecoArt white acrylic paint then wiped some off while paint was still wet, then heat set it.  I added some shimmery white chalk to the card stock.
