Happy Monday I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend It has been pretty gloomy here, so I am happy to share my bright and cheerful card today to help chase away the gloom.
I am not usually a fan of orange, but I can’t seem to get enough of the fun, colorful and inspirational vibe of World’s Fair! I thought I would make a card, so that when a friend needed a pick me up, I would have the perfect card at the ready. I embraced the orange and even threw on a large orange flower for good measure. I’m in love!
Tip: Sometimes it’s fun and striking to cluster elements in one concentrated area leaving a lot of “white space” on the rest of the card.

Hello, all! Leading up to Valentine’s Day, I made the mistake of leaving my shabby chic Valentine’s card for my husband where he was able to see it So, I made a new one. This time around I thought I would make one that was not traditionally Valentine’s-y but totally perfect for my husband.
Enchanted Forest is a collection that really speaks to me and my family. My daughter and I love everything about romance, princesses, castles, etc. and my husband and boys love dragons, knights, and adventure. This made the perfect collection to make my husband a non-traditional, Valentine’s Card. With jewel tones, touches of gold paint, multiple layers, and curled corners, this card is romantic, yet masculine enough for the perfect Valentine’s card. Do you have a manly man or a romantic loved one you would like to make this card for? You are in luck with a step by step Snapguide tutorial!
Tip: Use paint (I used gold for this card) on your paper edges to add a fun, distressed look.
cardstock- black and cream
ribbon- green and wired gold
mulberry paper flowers
adhesive and foam adhesive
I’ll have a more traditional Valentine’s idea on Thursday, so stay tuned.
Thanks for stopping by!

I have a new card to share for Party Time Tuesdays new Anything Goes Challenge! I have used a Wee Stamp called Shelley. She is adorable! I used distress inks to color the background layer and embossed the swirls over top with white embossing powder.
The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps. I colored her a while ago so can’t remember exactly what I used, but it was my usual Copic suspects.
I miss coloring and hope I can find more time to do it more often!
Hello! Happy 4th to those of you in the U.S.A.! I am back to share a tag using an image called, Daisy. She is the perfect summer/spring image!Here is my tag using this carefree image from Mo’s Digital Pencil!
I have used Maja paper
and some new Spellbinders dies for the tag shape- Decorative Labels 28. I’ve added some WOC flowers and a few that I have from LLC. The butterfly is a cut off from a Whimsy Butterfly Border Die. Oh, and the leaf flourishes come from another new to me Spellbinders die- Sprigs! Some Walnut Stain Distress Ink and Viva Pearl Pen finish up the embellishments!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Good morning! For my card today, I have used To School
by Mo’s Digital Pencil, so I could make a thank you card to my son’s teacher for the wonderful job she has done as all three of my boys’ kindergarten teacher. Hopefully, my daughter will be lucky enough to be in her class in a year, also!
The image reminds me of my youngest son as if he is ready and confident to go off to first grade after a great Kindergarten experience!
Everything but the button and paper clip are from the paper pad.
