It’s been a loooong time since I joined the T group at The Altered Book Lover with a drink and a life update. I’m sharing my Coffee, and some cards I made yesterday, and a small confession. Confession first = every time I have to get my blood drawn and fast, I eat something I […]
I heart card sketches #143 Always playing with paper #64: Navy, Lime, Blue & Grey Here is a birthday card for my 19 yr. old Nephew. I love when I find a sketch and a color challenge at the same time!The “twist” I chose are the four brads I added from my stash.

I’ve been wanting to make a card with this pretty birthday sentiment too, […]
Etsy: Today’s word prompt on 365 cards is “Steam” so I thought of coffee and a hot bath ~ ahhhh -then I thought of this hot air balloon….steam – hot air…?! I thought this “Happy Birthday” sentiment stamp went with the hot air balloon very nicely. I stamped on glossy photo paper with a black palette ink pad. I […]
This week 365 cards is going to use sketches for their challenges. Here is Monday’s sketch:I also used the the challenge from Birthday Sundaes to help me decide what to create today. You needed to use two patterned papers and at least three embellishments. I chose to stamp and cut out these flowers from JRL […]
