Back at Inspired by all the Little Things


Today I am back with my second post as Guest Artist at Inspired by all the Little Things.  Again thank you Darnell for the invitation.

Here is our inspiration photo for this challenge:

I was inspired by the blue lavender and pink frosting and how they blended into one another.  If you look closely you'll see the gold cherries that also grabbed my attention.

Come play along, the challenge is open until Friday May 4th.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Birthday Rose


This card is sliding in under the wire at one of two challenges.  Today I am playing with Just Us Girls - Black and white stripes and Seize the Birthday-Vibrant Colors are the toppings. These are definitely not pastels.

I was in such a hurry to get this in. I had cut just one leaf, then decided another was needed and I reversed the layers...well I am going with it.  The left leaf is in shadow. ;-)

Its mostly die cuts, Rose and leaves from Altenew, Horizontal striped frame from Avery Elle, Sentiment from SSS.


Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

Hi There!

About a month ago, I sent Lauren Bergold of  All the GOOD blog names were taken some die cuts and embossed panels.  In return she sent me some musical and floral book pages.  The papers are lush and the images are so pretty.  I will definitely be incorporating them into cards.

Here is my first go, the image has a wonderful background color and the daffodils are GORGEOUS. I made a very simple card by slightly mimicking the flutter of the petal cup edges with the scalloped edge of the card base.

It's been sent off to Lauren as a thank you.

Thanks for stopping.

PS Checkout Lauren's blog - I love the art she creates. She draws and colors the most amazing mandalas and can layer papers and bits fabulously, I am always intrigued when I visit.
