To create my card I used a new set from A Muse Studio called "Sunset Beach". I LOVE this set! The sentiment is from the TPC Studio set "Summer Boardwalk".  I used Wild Wasabi from Stampin Up, and a pink from Studio G $1 ink cubes, and Peach by Fresh Ink. I sprayed a few squirts of Glimmer mist to add a little extra to my card. I hope you like it!

I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you will play along with us this week!

Happy Birthday To You!



SusanB-day2

I created this card today with a very special person in mind, Susan Opel, the Creative  Editor of Paper Crafts Magazine.  Happy Birthday Susan!!  I used stamps from a super cool company, Avery Elle! I used the sets "All Occasions Tags", and "Petals and Stems". I used Only Orange, and Tangerine Tango from Stampin Up to stamp my flowers. The greenery was stamped using ink from TPC Studio. (Excellent inks).  I finished off my card with a big ol' orange bow, and what can I say...I LOVE it! I'm happy you stopped by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hello Foxy!


foxy2

   I enjoyed a little bit of "me" time and created a card for this weeks Papertrey Ink Make It Monday! The challenge this week was to watercolor an embossed image. I embossed the butterflies from the PTI set "Hello Foxy" using Stampin Up Copper embossing powder. I used SU classic ink, and a water color ink to color my lil' butterflies.  I colored my fox using Promarkers. The Hello sentiment is also from PTI. My super cute scrabble tiles were created using the brand new YNS  "Letter Board Die".  I'm happy you stopped by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
