Who doesn't love to colour!

My guess is that most card makers like to colour. At some point in their life they got excited about the new box of crayola crayons - especially the one with 96 colours and a sharpener in the back of the box. Well many years later I am colouring with tombow markers and picked up some great stamps at Scrapfest 2009 on the weekend.
Colouring is very relaxing and I love the end product. This card is on it's way to the store so I took a picture so I would remember how I made it. Have a great spring day!

Taking the Challenge

This card is heading into the mail tomorrow for a card challenge in California. When you put red, black and white together in a card, it makes for a classy combo. Eastern blooms from SU is one of my favourite stamp sets because you can make many unique colour combinations. So who knows if this one will make publication but if not I am sure someone will enjoy it!

Loving Mojo Mondays

I think this could be dangerous getting addicted to Mojo Mondays.They are great sketches to inspire me to make new cards. I think this will be added to my " to do list" for Mondays( much more fun than tidying the house). Hope you like the colours. I am going to miss Kiwi Kiss when SU brings in new colours! It is a definite fave of mine - so add in taken with teal and tangerine tango and it makes a great springy card. Thanks for looking at challenge #82.

Little Bits of Paper

It gives me great satisfaction when I can use up 1"strips of paper to create a nice card. This was the case with the great stamp set pick a petal! I was able to stamp on designer paper and use the reverse side for contrasting petals. My topnote always comes in handy for embellishing cards and the cuttlebug factor added just enough texture to make my card look finished. Hope you like it! We are going to make a similar one at the make'n take in May but with fresh spring colours.

Yeah for Red and Brown

Years ago you would never have put the red and brown colour combintation on a card or in your wardrobe but it is a new day. I think this card looks awesome and then add in kiwi kiss and it just pops. The little sizzlit dies from SU are so fun to use when you want to add dimension to your cards. Spring is definitely in the air so enjoy this new card as part of the Mojo Monday challenge #81. This is my first challenge!

Baby Bundle Stamp Camp

Here it is! The Baby Bundle Stamp Camp class and I think it really is cute. You can make this for a baby shower and fill the paint pail with baby goodies, and the new mom will love the little journal to track how her wee one changes over the twelve months. That is little baby Eli on the can - isn't he yummy! If you are interested in participating in this class please email about the class May 23 for more details.
