I made this for the Teal and Purple Color Challenge at the Phindy's Blog. I just love all the digi images at Phindy's Place. This is Mushroom Top Fairy. ( I think that's the name). This color combnation is really different but so striking IRL. I used a Viva La Verve sketch too.
Paper-Bo Bunny, Bazzill CS, Kraft
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Recollection butterfly
MS punch, spellbinders, ribbon, smooth gems

 Hi all, I made a little birthday card to play with the current challenge for Just US Girls color challenge 80. I also used a Verve Sketch April week 3 Viva La Verve. Coral is not a color that I have much of in my stash so I picked up a piece of Bazzill card stock so I could participate in the challenge. Ya know, I live less than a mile from Michaels and Joannes so I'm there quite a bit! Not sure how good that is. It sure is hard to practice restraint! i know you can all relate, am I right? Have a good week.

Get you Diva On.Mojo 168

Hi bloggers, Phew! This card sketch was challenging enough but I also combined it with the "Get your Diva On" challenge on Splitcoast Stampers associated with Verve Stamps. The April Challenge was a Recipe Challenge. See the list above. Since my name begins with K, I had to do the G-N. It wasn't easy to use  buttons, brads and twine on a card but luckily this week's Mojo Monday Sketch had some elements that worked. I had to use pink, turquoise and brown. My colors are muted shades from the lovely Curio 6x6 Basic Grey Pad. For my sentiment block, I used a vellum spellbinder diecut layered over a cicle diecut anchored with brads. I used a Fiscars stamp from the birthday set.

 Hi blog friends, I have alot of birthdays coming up in the next few months so I need to catch up on my birthday cards. I used a cute phindy image, Here's to you, and followed this weeks challenge which is to use humor on your card. I used a fiscars stamp from a birthday set that has several funny sentiments. I think the paper is my minds eye. I added some bakers twine, gems, MS gems.

Does anyone use your sewing machine with no thread in the needle to paper pierce? I do it often and did it on this card. If I peirce freehand, I do it crooked! Try it, it works well. Toodles!



Hi all, I figured I'd jump on the Easter Card bandwagon! I'll probably send it to one of my girls. I used some Echo Park papers and a mojo monday sketch. I used some springy colors too. The image is a pink cat studio digi which I colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS. (the lavender color on the flowers match the organza ribbon but it doesn't appear so in the photo). The sentiment on the inside says Easter Blessings. Links to some challenges are listed below.
Take care!

 Hi bloggers, how was your weekend? Not quite over yet but close! I needed to make a card for my youngest daughter who moved out this weekend. (It's bittersweet) I used the latest Sweet shop sketch 102. I love to use ovals. I find them pleasing to look at.
I saw this sentiment in a stamp set which I don't own so I computer generated it on cardstock. I cut it out with a spellbinder die and stenciled with pink ink. I added a little leaf stamp.
To embellish, i used a little prima flower, a diecut heart and button threaded with twine. I used a EK success punch to surround the panels and embossed the background with a dot folder.  Thanks for visiting!
