Happy Sunday all!  I hope you have been enjoying your weekend so far!  I have had a head cold over a week now, and I am SO over it!  I have been saying this since day one LOL.  No amount of medications are helping me either - trust me, I've tried!!!!






This week at The Paper Players, Joanne has this super fun, super versatile SKETCH:







I kept my card super simple this week and "baked" a bunch of chocolate macarons (or hamburgers according my husband).

I have only inked this Avery Elle set a couple of times, but it is SO adorable, I really need to keep it in my rotation!  Next time I will make them a little less "hamburger" like LOL.

Thanks A Latte:


Happy Thursday all!  I have been on a mega crafting roll this month!  Toot toot!!


Just like yesterday, today I am showcasing some older Reverse Confetti products that have either rarely or never been inked.





I tried my hand at using a wet brush and dipping it into water based ink and smudging it on my dry watercolour paper.  Not a very smooth way to paint but I though it gave the cups an interesting look :)









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

Less Is More - one layer beverage






CAS on Sunday - black, white, and one other colour







Little Red Wagon - thanks




Well cheers all!  Thanks for following along with me on my crafting adventure.

You're The Jam:


YOU are the JAM!

Hi all!  Happy Tuesday to you!  I hope the week so far as being treating you well.  I have been spending a lot of time in the craft room and loving it!!




I of course have been lucky enough to be a part of the Reverse Confetti team this month. Hi my name is Deanne, and I have an addition to RC crafting supplies =)

Today I am showcasing one of my new favourite sets Reverse Confetti's Foodie Fun and the coordinating Confetti Cuts.  Seriously LOVE!




Again - jam and toast.  LOVE it!  I also tried my hand at inking a stencil which I usually make a mess of, but this one turned out fantastically!
