You are so loved

Hello! Today is the start of the fabulous Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge. It is so much fun to be motivated to color something every day. If you haven't played along before, I urge you to check it out. Lots of fun! :) Here's my card for today...

I just got the Woodland Gifts set by Mama Elephant, so I had to get it inky. I stamped and paper pieced them on the new Spring Fling patterned paper by Pebbles. Then I colored and shaded them with my Copics. I used the Stitched Honey Comb Dies by MyCreativeTime. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies by MyCreativeTime

I hope your February is off to a great start.

MCT Manly Monday

Hello! It's Manly Monday at MyCreativeTime. I used the Stitched Postage Frame dies, the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More dies, and the Bunch Of Fun Circles dies. The greeting is from the new Cute Tags Sentiment And Die set. The patterned paper is from the Hey Boy collection by Basic Grey...who, by the way, are no longer going to be making paper crafts stuff. :(

He liked it, so he put a ring on it

Hiya! Here's the engagement card I made for my friend Beth, who just got engaged! YAY! :) I finally used the Print Then Cut feature of my Cricut Explore machine. I cut the panel with the custom greeting on it using a font in my computer...and it was actually super easy. WOOT! Then my all time favorite part, gluing on the sequins. So therapeutic. :)

I hope you're having a nice Friday night.

I miss you. a lot.

Hello! Here is my "homework" for today's Watercolor For Cardmakers Intermediate Techniques class at OnlineCardClasses. I painted a beach scene with my distress markers and water. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies and the Stitched Oval Dies from MyCreativeTime. The greeting is from the Miss You Lots set by Wplus9. To finish it off, I drew in 3 little birds with a black pen. 

I hope you have a peaceful day.

MCT Do Over Thursday

Hello! Today is "Do Over Thursday" at MyCreativeTime. For my card today I made a different version of  this card...

Deets on this card are HERE. For my new version I again used the Party Hat Dies. I used the Bunch Of Fun Circles Dies and the Starburst Circles Dies to make my little shaker. I used the numbers from the Sitched 4x6 Journal Dies. I also used the Stitched Rectangular Frames And More Dies. I again did my watercoloring with distress inks. 

Pop over to MyCreativeTime to see more "do overs". :)

A Happy Hello

Hello! I am super loving the Watercolor For Cardmakers Intermediate Techniques class at OnlineCardClasses. Dawn {teacher} makes it all seem so doable. Anyhoo, I used the Pretty Peonies set from Wplus9 as a jumping off point for my flowers. I used the Hand Lettered Hello set by Wplus9 for the greeting. And I totally stole Kelly Latevola's awesome white outlining of sentiments thang. I think I'm probably hooked on that now. :)

I hope you're having an awesome day!
