Flower Power:


Today I am "kickin' it old school."  I had received this stamp and die set from Mona Pendleton herself a number of years ago (I do believe she was guesting and sponsoring a DT I was on??).  So today was the first time I actually inked these beauties up.  Hmmm.. what on earth was I waiting for?  I love them!

Nailed It:

Happy Monday all!

You know that "once in a blue moon" moment when you feel you've nailed it?  I am talking about creating something that you've thought to yourself:  this is what was in my head!

Well it happens to me maybe twice a year, so when "it" happens, I am over the moon!  And yes, this is my "it" card =)

I masked my flowers to create a group and then painted the blooms with inks and a wet paintbrush.  I then did a quick spritz with my water bottle to give it more movement.

Merry Monday 168:


Good morning all!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  Today is what we call "Saskatchewan Day"(the fantastically gorgeous province I live in) and therefore we get today off.  I have always said Monday holidays are the best!

This week at Merry Monday, I have chosen the theme of using PASTELS on your Christmas card:



Don't forget we are having a two week challenge!!  More time to get your creations in!

I was going to use a few pastel colours on my card, but then decided to go monochromatic mint on this one.  Not that I like to toot my horn, but I am super happy how this came out AND it was a snap to make.  TOOT TOOT
