I LOVE the challenge theme 

It's called Snap Crackle Crackle.
I decided to wet emboss some
crackle stamping in gold!

The Simple Sayings stamp

I love this how this neutral tone card turned out.
It felt great to use my embossing supplies again.
That's why I love challenges, they keep me using
up my supplies & trying new designs.


Hello bloggers!
I'm sharing an entry for
Here is their suggestion:

Those colors are so soft and sweet,
like spring and gardens.
I chose a different theme &
went with graduation for this!

The books are from the 12/12 kit of the month
by Unity.  The word was masked out of a stamp
I used distress in to shade the table brown.

Here is the same card design in 
different colors!

This one is our school colors.
Those cool edge stars are from 
There is a faint gray pattern
of the Stars of Worn stamp.

Mojo Monday 396

If you need a card design idea,
just check out the sketch for
  Mojo Monday this week...

I'm cutting it close to the 
deadline.  Here is what 
was created for the challenge....

As you can see, I flipped the sketch
on it's side to get this layout.

The cute stamp is from Unity,
I colored in the letters with Copic markers.

Spring Bird

Spring is in full force here!

That means less time in the craft room.
But I took advantage of the rainy
evening and made a card for today's

That stamp is from a new set I purchased 
from Unity called Blossoming Thoughts.

It was tricky stamping the top of the sentiment in pink
and then doing the bottom in green.  They didn't line
up just right, but no one will ever tell.

That lovely paper is from Prima.
It was a scrap that I had left 
& it made a quick easy card!

The lace was a "super score" from the local
craft shop.  They were selling it at only 20 cents a yard!
I stocked up.  It's a nice size lace for cards too.
