I enjoyed making this card for the CREATE hexagon challenge. I used Pink Paislee paper and my Sizzix embossing folder, along with Tim Holtz distress ink, a piece of yellow cardstock from my stash, a ribbon from my stash and a bit of fussy cutting. I wasn't chosen to be featured (no big surprise), but I think my card making is improving. Thanks for looking.

Here is my entry for the March 20th Card Sketch Challenge Tuesday! I swear that this card is pink! I cannot get it to look exactly right. I'm sorry about the photo.

I used some of my very favorite Bo Bunny papers - Sophie and Delilah. I fussy cut all of the flowers and I used the curly line from Kitchen Spice. These are all Back to Backs.  I stamped the sentiment using Just the Basics from Stampin Daisies, along with in from Stephanie Barnard for Colorbox ink. I inked everthing for definition and highlights. I also drew around the curly line with black pen. I added some bling for good measure! Thank you for looking at my first Bo Bunny entry!

Tuesday Trigger 3-25-12

This is my first entry for a Tuesday Trigger! I was inspired by the beautiful damask print and the light rug over dark floor, and by the pop of pink. I stamped this saying  and the brown frame using stamps from the Stamps of Life.  I used ink by Stephanie Barnard for Colorbox. Next, I diecut it and the layer behind it using a Sizzix die by Stephanie Barnard. I attached it to this ovely tone on tone paper and I inked all of the edges for definition. I rounded the corners and attached a ribbon from my stash. To finish it off, I added a bit of bling. Thank you for looking!

CAS-ual Friday Entr

Here is my next CAS-ual Friday entry (or two). I'm determined to keep trying.  I love to add more... and more... and more, so it is always a struggle for me, but I enjoy trying. I stepped out of my box this week. I used Tattered Angels mist, ribbon and bling from my stash, Stephanie Barnard for Colorbox ink and a beautiful stamp by Studio 112 that I found at Jo-Anns.  I made the red card first, so that is my entry. I'm also going to enter my blue card, because I think it's pretty. The bling on the red card is red in person. I didn't have blue bling (hanging my head in shame), so I used some Stickles.  Thank you for looking.

CAS Baby card

Here is my first baby card, and I tried to make it clean and simple. It is my entry for this Cas-ual Friday CFC42 challenge.  I used my Sizzix texture folders, a stamp set by G Studio and ink by ColorBox and Stephanie Barnard.  They are my  favorite ink pads for stamping!  The papers are from a Debbie Mumm for JoAnn's Boy stack, DCWV and my stash. I colored the image with Sakura Jelly Roll pens.

Clean and Simple is not my strong suit, but I had a lot of fun making this card. Thank you for looking. Well, I guess not too many folks will be looking, since I messed up the linking. Better luck for me next time... lol!
