Sending Hugs with Altenew’s Spring Daisy

Hello there!  Watercolor is not my forte, but I really wanted to watercolor these gorgeous flowers from Altenew (Also, being rather competitive, I am determined to improve in that medium!).  I used the following colors of Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to color these beauties:  29, 23, 52, 50…

Enjoy Your Day!: Inky Paws Challenge 51 Inspiration

Hi there!  I’m back with a little inspiration for the current Inky Paws Challenge.   This time I decided to play with the gorgeous flowers and foliage in the inspiration photo. For the ones on my card, I used a leaf and flower stamp from Lovely Blooms.  The cute…

Reach for the Stars

Hello there!  I recently picked up some items from Newton’s Nook Designs’ July release and couldn’t wait to play with them. I stamped this cute image of Newton from Cosmic Newton with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored him with Copics, and cut him out with…

Hello

Happy Saturday!  I’m sharing a card I created for MFT Sketch Challenge 329 using the Adorable Elephants from MFT Stamps.  I just love these elephants and had not played with them in awhile, so I dusted them off for this card. I stamped the elephant and butterfly with…

You Lift Me Up

Hello there!  I actually took a little “me” time today and did some crafting.  What I SHOULD have done was some cleaning, but, hey, that’ll still be waiting for me tomorrow (unfortunately).  My card today was inspired by MFT Sketch Challenge 341.  However, my card does…

Friend You’re Purr-fect

Hi there, friends!  Can you believe July is half over?!  My poor kiddos start back to school in 2 weeks – where has the summer gone???  Granted, I may have more time to craft when they’re back in school (and I hope to do more videos), but I…
