Isn't she lovely?  I like that song.  Butterflies are so popular in paper crafting right now and why shouldn't they be.  They are so delicate & pretty.


Isn't this gorgeous?  Lisa created a masterpiece, didn't she?  She used the 5th Avenue Stamps which are on sale this month. 


Love this.  Lily used a make-up swab with ink and glossy paper to create this look!

Arla featured our Flower Fancy stamp set that is part of our promo this month in her project.  I believe that Stampin Up created the 2-step stampin stamp design. Great place to start for new stampers. For more info, send me an email.

Sorry for the lousy scan, I can't seem to get a good scan when there is dimesnion on cards. 

Thanks so much for stopping by.


This is Kathy's project.  She used a watercolor pencil to create the depth/shadow of the flowers.  Fabulous.

This week I have incredible SWAPS to share with you.  First we were to create a Mother's Day project using watercolor pencils or crayons in a technique new to us.  In this technique I used our Watercolor Wonder Crayons & a line image stamp, in this case Asian Artistry - an exclusive Hostess set.  Using the crayon I first colored the stamp with it, spritzed it 3 times with water, spritzed a piece of watercolor paper with water 3 times & stamped the image.  Using my heat tool I dried the image & then using Basic Black ink I stamped the same image over the the one I just created it.  I am a huge fan of watercoloring, but I don't feel I'm very good at it.  But, I do like how this turned out.  Hope you like it also.  Thanks so very much for stopping by and taking a look.

For Jayna

I wanted to make a card last night so decided to use the Splitcoaststampers Sketch of the Week, SC275.  I was going thru my stamps and ran across "Friendship is a Sheltering Tree."  I immediately thought of my friend Jayna from church.  She cares so much about people & she feels so bad when she can't help them.  So this card is for her.  I'm giving it to her tonight at church.
