I've decided it is time to join in the world of challenges. This is the first time I have ever done one. I'm not thrilled with how it turned out, but I'm hoping for time to play again later today, I'll show this one because I love the ribbon. I used my going grey SU marker to make the lines on it, and I just love that technique. I think we might be doing that for club next week.
Supplies: SU Sofy Sky, Going Grey maerkers, ink cardstock and ribbon, Lizzie Anne Designs Dreaming of Dots Stamps

New banner

Do you like my new banner? Tricia from Lizze Anne Designs made it for me - it is perfect! Just how I would have done it myself if I knew how! Great job Tricia! I love it! Thank you!

more Jolie Fleurs

I love the colors in this feels so springy and cheerful. It's been too cold here lately. It even snowed a little this week, definately not something normal for the Seattle area. I'm very ready for warmer weather. I used the flowers from LAD In the Back Ground for the top part of the card, and Jolie Fleurs for the center flower and swirl. I colored the flower with a blender pen. I left the inside blank so I would be able to decide later on a sentiment, something I often do. I have more cards in my "blank" file than any other section, what cards do you have the most of?
Supplies: SU Cameo Coral and Morning Marigold ink and cardstock, celery ink, whisper white ink, misc ribbon and eyelets.

My set for the month of March was Jolie Fleurs, I've had a lot of fun playing with this set and trying new things. I wanted to create a background stip of paper to match the colors in the photo and to get the feel i wanted for this photo. It's a little dark in this picture, but i love the expressions on everyone face, it was the perfect day (my birthday last year) we were in Hawaii with my family and it was just a great day. I love how well this set lends itself to different feelings based on the images and colors you use. I have a few more samples from this set that I'll share this week.
Have a great day!

Do you like cupcakes? I love cupcakes! Yummy delicious pink lemonade mini cupcakes...for some reason I don't think they would be as good in a full size cupcake and especially not cake size...what is it about being "tiny" that makes them so apealling! I made these for a baby shower a couple weeks ago - we couldn't say the word "cute" or you lost your pacifier necklace, all you had to do was stand next to the cupcake plate and you were bound to get a few of those necklaces. They were "cute" after all!

It was my birthday last week and this is what I came home to....thanks guys! I love it - especially the cupcakes ballons! I also had club last week and my wonderful friends brought me these wonderful jars full of ribbon. I LOVE ribbon and this was just so thoughtful of them! You ladies ROCK! Thank you!!!! The first image is what we made at club, inside the little white square is a peanut butter cup...yummy! You can't go wrong with peanut buttter and chocolate! hmm - I need to go see if there any any left! The inspiration for this project came from Angie Kennedy Juda's website - Chic n Scratch - the link is to the right.
Have a wonderful St. Patty's Day!

This is what I used for my table setting last year at Easter. Inside was filled with jelly beans and on the back is a cute little poem, I can't remember where I found it last year, but it was a big hit with the family!

Couldn't send you Easter Eggs, and candy wouldn't do. Mushy cards just didn't say the things I want them to. So i got you something special and here's the scoop, I found you something very rare, it's genuine Bunny Poop!

one sheet wonder

here is the start of my one sheet wonder. I stamped a few images from Joile Fleurs from Lizzie Anne all over my paper. Then I cut off a strip and colored in part of the image for the Thank You card. Then I embossed with clear ink over the images I stamped and then wiped SU's certainly celery all over my paper to get the green background. I love the effect and the difference between the two cards. I haven't made anything else yet with the paper (except a small journal to match the birthday card), so when I make something else, I'll get that posted. Have a great day!

Supplies: Lizzie Anne Designs Jolie Fluers and Sketched Sentiments, In the Background. SU cool carribean, certainly celery ink, close to cocoa and chocolate chip ink, ribbon and markers
