Rainbows and Unicorns:


Hi all!  Happy Wednesday to you! 

This will be one of my last posts as a 'Fetti Friend as March is just around the corner (enter sad face here).  I have enjoyed every secound of being part of the team.  Thank you!




Today I created another distress ink resist technique card.  Although it looks a bit washed out, it is quite pretty in real life. 


This time I used pinks (my favourite!) and added a pink unicorn!  Who says unicorns have to be white!?



I added a bit of sparkle to her horn and a big bow to her tail =D









I would like to enter my card into the following challenges as well:

Happy Sunday all!  It's been a great weekend so far!  It's NBA All-Star weekend, so we have been watching a lot of tv basketball (my favourite!). It is also Sunday of a long weekend (which is also my favourite!).  Holiday Mondays are the best, right?!?!





This week at The Paper Players, Laurie's clean and simple challenge is using a SENTIMENT as your focal point:





I had received quite a few sentiment die cuts for Christmas (thanks to my husband!), so I dug threw some new stash and came out with this one!

This is my second die inlay technique card and they are so much fun to put together!  I must make more!


Card Ingredients:
Die cuts: My Favorite Things Well WishesMy Favorite Things Blueprints 13, My Favorite Things Blueprints 20

I Love You:


Hi all!  Happy Saturday to you!  It is a long weekend here and I plan to take advantage of it and craft, craft, craft!






Today I am trying a new technique (to me).  I created a negative space "stencil" with Reverse Confetti's Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts and stamped layers of Love Blooms.  I then took my "stencil" off, added a Crazy About You sentiment, and tahdah... another one layer card perfect for mailing!




One layer cards are now one of my favourites to create!  It's a challenge but so much fun to see what I can come up with.  (BTW:  I still LOVE lots of layers too!)

Merry Monday 235:


Happy Monday all!  I spent another great weekend in my craft room.  I haven't enjoyed creating card this much in a long time!  Hopefully that kind of thinking stays put for a while!



This week at Merry Monday, Linda would like us to create a Christmas card with a SNOWMAN theme:






Oh snowmen.  Why do you hate me so much?

I don't know what it is about snowmen, but we just don't get along.  I don't know why.  It just is.

(Although this little guy turned out pretty awesome and it looks like he wants to give me a hug.)
