Birthday flowers***

I really liked the way this one turned out*** Again I was just playing around with some distress stains... Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, Mustard Seed...

I stamped the flower in Versamark and heat embossed it with white E.P.

It's from Donna Downey's collection.

I roughed up the edges and found some papers from the many many packs I have that

suited the colors I used...


Enjoy and have a fabulous day***

Felt flowers***





A simple card made with papers from my bit bin, a spellbinders die which I edged with Antique Linen distress ink and added a sentiment from Printworks.

The flowers and leaves are cut from felt through my Vagabond. They are the tattered florals dies from Tim Holtz. A button finishes it off.


Thanks for stopping in***

Take a Risk***

I have been playing around with distress stains, distress inks, and Dyan Reaveley stamps.

Just mixing colors and generally having a hand-staining good time***

Sending Smiles***

I was surfing the other day and re-found Heather Telford's blog. She does some amazing work***

I tried to re-create what she did with the Penny Black branch.

You can find her tutorial HERE...

I didn't have any masking fluid so went without...

I still like the results!!


Happy Valentine's Day***

Birthday wishes***

Hi everyone!! How has your day been?


Here is a card I just finished... A Wendy Vecchi flower that I painted with


Claudine Hellmuth studio paints... added a little button in the centre.


The paper was bits in my bit bin and the sentiment, die cut and ribbon are


Papertrey Ink. I also added a little clear glaze pen to the heart on the tag.


Kind of shines it up!!




Enjoy and have a great weekend***
