I love coloring simple line flowers with big petals. Its easier for me. Small fussy spaces are difficult for me to color.  Pretty Pink Posh has several simple line flowers that are perfect for me.  These geraniums were a lot of fun to play with.  Hubs liked this one which was a bit of a shock - simply because he doesn't care for black card bases.  It was probably those red flowers...lol.

These were copic colored (R5,R17,R38; G19, G29).  They are off to Peggy, who has moved to Maine. She's getting settled in, and soon we hope to try a facetime crafting session.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Fathers Day


This year the Dad's get Hawaiian like shirt cards for Father's day.  A friend cut the patterns out and I simply put them together and added an inside sentiment. 

Of course my Dad's cats wanted to present him with a card too, so they asked me to put one together.

I am entering the cat card in three challenges :

Day of the Month Club Challenge -Hug your Cat , Watercooler Wednesday,   and   Addicted to CAS - Father.

Birthday Mouse


I had to play with those cute mice from Newton's Nook again.  I'm still using that cream card stock.

This one is going to Seize the Birthday - anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by.

Rose Garden


While I had this stamp out, I made several cards.  The first two have already been posted.  They were watercolored.  This time I stamped them on cream cardstock and colored with copics.  I have to say I kinda like the warmth of the cream cardstock.

I had bought this in 100lb weight for card bases on watercolor cards.  Between the first time and the most recent time buying the cardstock ream, the cream color was not as light and it no longer matches my watercolor paper.  So now I am going to use it as I would use white card stock for a while.

It adds a warmth to the cards I think.  My cards were inspired by Double D Challenges, Rose Garden.

I'll be entering this last card over at Double D.  IT has a two toned colored rose, similar to the one in the lower left corner of the inspiration photo. (though I chose to invert the colors)

Thanks so much for visiting.

A variety

Hello -

While I am doing the laundry, I thought I'd take the time to play in some challenges.  Seems like its been more than a while since I sat down to play.  I still have several birthday cards to make to finish out my year.

I have my challenges in order by closing dates, so that is how I'll list them here.

Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown gave me inspiration for this card on cream cardstock.

I used embossing folders and dies on this card and just a bit of a sentiment. But I debate about that sentiment...yes no yes no well...finally decided to put it on.  I cut it all out of the same cream cardstock colored with copic markers in shades of teal and coral. My matt is navy.  A friend sent me the flower embossed panel...and forgive me I cannot remember who it was. Yikes! But thank you! I had tried the top cream panel as a flat panel but it just needed something, so I was thrilled to try out the corrugated embossing folder by SU. Its been here a bit but untried. I love the dimension it gives.

CAS Colors and Sketches has a color challenge, Watercooler Wednesday has a feminine anything goes challenge and Addicted to Stamps and More has a CAS challenge. 

Altenew Daisies were stamped in several shades of pink and aqua with several shades of yellow centers.  After die cutting they were mounted to a pale pink card base and a CTMH sentiment was added. A few bling bits and the card is finished.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit.
