Todays’ challenge is a gem! Great job Nicole! She’s put together 8 fabulous color palettes with their inspiration photos. Working just one, will not be enough, but a girls’ got to start somewhere! Grab a cuppa and stay a little while. After I show you my project, I would love to share some of what’s [...]
Happy Monday to you! I was itching for some new challenges this morning. I’m beginning with Mojo Monday. You can visit the site here. These are the inspiration sketches.
Working with the square format, this is the card I made…
I die cut Spellbinders #18 and stamped it with [...]
After mondays’ challenges, I was in search of a real challenge! It’s fun and easy to work in my comfort zone, but as you know, I love pushing myself into colors and sketches that don’t appeal to me. It’s a lot like walking into someones’ beautiful home, admiring the ambiance, colors and style, but knowing [...]

A palette of rose colors in the inspiration photo and the instruction to use lace OR ribbon (that’s cruel I tell ya!) and flowers! I added some wrought iron fencing from the photo as well.
I jumped over the traditional April showers, right to May flowers. Where I live, it’s [...]
I’ve been dusting my playtable and myself with glitter on a pretty regular basis. I had just stopped picking glitter from the floor, my face and my hair when Heather Nichols’ ‘Glittering Die Cuts’ video has me dragging out a rainbow of glitter again! I like her idea of using a Zyron for glittering die [...]

Because I have difficulty [...]
