Hello everyone and welcome. The new Double ‘D’ Challenge is the perfect reason to create a beautiful, spring-themed card! I took some inspiration from a card I saw last year, created by Betsy Veldman and made my own, personal version…
I began by die cutting the front panel from 40 lb. watercolor paper then […]
Hello everyone. It’s time to let out a big sigh in the southwest as cool weather is on its’ way! October more often resembles summer here in the desert, but the mornings begin to cool which means the days will be moderating too. Each year when I turn the calendar page to October, I think […]
Hello dear bloggers,

I love the images of winter, snow, frost, sweaters and hats…everything except sliding on ice! This challenge was another reason to play with water colors in a color palette that I remember […]
Hello everyone. I hope you’re cozy and enjoying this season. There was frost on the neighbors’ roof this morning and the narcissus are starting to develop buds. They usually flower late November through December and I look forward to them each year.
Papertrey Ink has a ‘Make It Monday Challenge #232’ called ‘Layered Stamping on […]
Hello~ I’m so happy it’s September 😀 Happier still that we are just two weeks away from the autumnal equinox! I’m just a happy camper this time of year. I could keep going, but I’d best tell you about todays’ challenge at The Shabby Tea Room! The sponsor for this challenge is bydigitalpaper by Janet […]
Hello dear paper crafters! Oh, have I had a good time! The latest challenge at Vintage Udfordring is about Butterflies. I’ve been storing a renaissance image that I’m entranced by.
