Happy Easter To You

God's rich blessings to you. I have a clean & simple design to share with you today. With Good Friday just passing, that service was still with me yesterday. As the altar was stripped & then draped in black we spent several moments in silence with our thoughts & prayers - very powerful!

Did you know the color for Easter is gold to signify a new beginning?

Vellum Paper And Smooch Pearlized Accent Ink Butterflies

Not sure about this one. I think I like how it turned out, but I'm not sure. Because the butterflies have little or no color they just fade into the background instead of being front and center as this sketch is designed.

Feedback would be welcomed.

Separation Anxiety

Good morning to you. Thank you for stopping by.

Today's card features the color combo Basic Gray, Summer Starfruit & Pool Party. Pool Party is one of our colors that will be retiring in June & i am going through separation anxiety right now. Ugh. But one must carry on, we will be getting 5 new colors to play with for 2 years. I am sure to find another favorite color so I will once again be happy.

I'm off to stamp!

Thank you Elizabeth Price for sharing your beautiful design!

Delicate Details

Today's project is using the MOJO Monday Sketch 285. A couple of thoughts on my design. I really like the Delicate Details Lace Tape on here. It's subtle but still gives the card a big impact.

Second, the layered pieces were not working for me until I added Dimensionals to them. I love it now! I think I use Dimensionals on almost every design.

I hope that you too will include them in your beautiful creations.

Happy Stampin'

A Little Sunshine

Watercoloring is so much fun & it was a perfect medium to use for this cheerful card! Especially when you use Aquapainters, watercolor paper & StazOn Ink. Almost full proof.

Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon & thanks so much for stopping by.

Blessings to each of you.

My Friend

I used a recent MOJO Monday Sketch for this card. They have really nice sketches there. This color scheme reminded me of an assignment we had in my high school art class. We were to paint a grouping of objects using cool or warm colors. I chose the cool colors & I have loved blues and purples ever since.

Hope to see you again real soon.

A Family Growing . . .

A finished page with photos! I'm so proud of myself.

Today's project is a 12 x 12 scrapbook page. The Stampin' Up! products used were the Hearts a Flutter Framelits, buttons, brads, lace & safety pin. I also used the alphabet die from SU.

I found the sketch at Scrapbooks Etc. web site. It was perfect for these photos!
Easy to CASE (copy and share everything) & I hope you do!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sweet KC

I'm working on a scrapbook page to share with you, I hope to put the finishing touch on it tomorrow.

My KC is so sweet when he's sleeping! I decided to share this photo today. Can you see one eye open? The first photo I took without him knowing. That's hard to do by the way! I whispered his name & got this photo. Perfect.

No Pastels

If you saw my post from earlier today i had intentions of a spring celebration card with flowers, pastels & butterflies. When i started choosing my colors, i completely forgot about the pastels! I chose Summer Starfruit & Raspberry Ripple. A fabulous color duo.

Fast and fun! A great design when you want to create or need something fast.

Happy creating. Thanks so much for stopping by.



"Spring is almost here! As the weather turns from cold and blustery to mild and full of life, open your windows, and let the beauty of nature shine through. Usher in the vibrant season with a card or scrapbook page dedicated to budding flowers, pretty pastels, and beautiful butterflies. " I changed just a few words.

This was such a beautiful article that
I wanted to share it! I'm off to create a pretty card with flowers, pastels & butterflies. I'll be back later to share it with you.
