Hello and Happy Tuesday! On the Eve of St. Patrick's Day, I thought it appropriate to share a themed card; perhaps a mexied media project...I'm really not sure what mixed media is but I used an ink smooshing technique, a die cut, twine, enamel dots, a sentiment stamp and paint splatters. Does that count?

Good Sunday to you and I hope you are well. In the States, we changed our time and "Sprung Ahead" for Daylight Savings Time. I'm feeling that hour of lost sleep so today's post is a quick one.
I was inspired by the butterflies I saw fluttering about this morning as I sat on the deck and had coffee. I created this card using die cuts and the "Small Talk" sentiment strips by Tim Holtz.

Good Day and Happy Fri-YAY! The week flew by and we're counting the Days until Spring. Today's make and share is my take on a Simple Design and features ink blending with simple stamping.

Hello and Happy Thursday! Spring is around the corner (Daylight Savings time this weekend) and I'm ready for that extra of hour of Daylight in the evenings. My share today features a Cheerful Robin Red Breast; a sign of Spring, and he is singing his Welcome Spring Song.
The card measures 5" square, features masking, ink blending, alcohol marker coloring and the Beautiful Birds Stamp set with coordinating dies from Gina K. Designs. This style of card is different for me as I tend to make A2 sized cards with lots of layers and patterned paper. It's fun to step outside your box once in a while - I like how this card turned out...I see more of this style in my future.
Don't forget to "Spring Ahead" 1 hour this weekend....Spring is Coming! Until Next Time, Happy Crafting!

Hello and Happy Saturday Evening! Wow...I had a great crafting day..all alone for several blissful hours so I took advantage and created several cards I will be featuring this week.
One of the cards today is this Sweet Lady Gnome Leprechaun bearing a Top Hat full of 4 Leaf Clovers. I love to craft for seasons and Holidays, even though many may not recognize or celebrate, it's a reason for me to get creative. A majority of my cards go to Sending Smiles to Seniors and Card Swaps so I'm always in need of seasonal cards.

I also popped some elements with foam pads for added dimension and added Twine to appear the plane is flying the banner behind.
The inspirational Photo could have been anything involving clouds, a blue sky, outdoors but I chose the paper airplane to inspire me.
