Hi friends! It's time for spring birthdays and I have a simple birthday card to share with you. I'm a big fan of rainbows...especially when March has been filled with snowstorms and thunderstorms (in one weekend). So I channeled that cheerfulness when creating this card. I used the Rainbow Wishes stamp and die bundle from … Continue reading Bright & Beautiful Birthday
Hi friends, just a quick card to share with you today. I used the Banners and Blooms stamp set from Concord & 9th to make this loosely watercolored thank you card. I started off by stamping the floral spray in a sort of vertical orientation using VersaFine ink - I find this ink is great … Continue reading WCMC9 #19 sketch
Hi friends! Today I have another installment of my obsession with no-line pencil coloring, using the Friends Furever set from My Favorite Things. I used the sketch from the MFT sketch challenge #376 (link at end) to create this card. I had been coloring a bunch of bears with different coloring media, so I popped … Continue reading Beary Happy Birthay

And so today I am sharing a card I made for the MFT sketch challenge #375 and color challenge #89 (taking a little liberty with the color scheme). Here is my take on both challenges: I used the brand new Bubble over with … Continue reading You bring me joy

He'd go out to the pool, find the frog swimming around, scoop him out and throw him over the fence. The next day, the frog would be back, … Continue reading Hoppy Hoppy Birthday!
I'm just going to apologize right now, because this post is like a love letter to Waffle Flower. I am obsessed with every stamp and die set they produce. I adore the illustrators they work with. Who's got two inky thumbs and a huge stack of bright yellow stamp packaging? This gal. The card I'm … Continue reading Would you like some kit-tea?
I thought I would wait a couple of days before sharing my next card, but I wanted to play this card in the MFT sketch challenge (#373) and what do you know, it closes tomorrow! Oh darn, I guess I'll just have to go ahead and share it now 🙂 Here's my card: For this … Continue reading MFT: Somebunny I love
Hello! The card I have to share with you today is a little frilly, a little shiny, a little soft, and a lot of fun. I used the Just Because bundle from Concord & 9th along with some "traditional" and less traditional watercolors. I picked out some colors that I really liked from the soft, … Continue reading Just because
Hello friends! Today I have a card (actually, two) to share with you for the latest Where Creativity Meets C9 challenge. It's all about watercolor, baby! My favorite! I really love the look of pearlized watercolors, especially on black cardstock, and I thought the new Wonderful Florals set would be so fun to paint with … Continue reading wcmc9 #18: watercolor
