{9.11.2012} tuning in

This is a quickie post.  You might have seen this fun card on the Paper Made Bakery blog last week.  Well, I love it so much, I just had to enter it into the Focal Point Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. Everything in the card is positioned to make the microphone on the cork the star.  Even the papers lead your eye there.  Initially, I wasn’t going to include any patterned paper until I had an oops moment.  When you stamp on cork, it takes a long time to dry.  Well, I flipped my stamped cork over on top of …

{8.25.2012} with sympathy

This little birdie flew into my home this month.  Isn’t he sweet.  I love the sketched look and yet he is quite simple and elegant at the same time.  His first job is a sympathy card and he did it well. I chose to go with a very soft and serene color palette: cream, creamy brown and robin’s egg.  The sketch for this second round of the Hero Arts August 2012 challenge was the perfect inspiration for this sympathy card.

I have LOTS of exciting news I’ll be able to share soon!  Right now, I’m bursting at the seams with excitement and it is killing me.  Ha. But this news I can share… I met the amazing KIM HUGHES this weekend.  She is the owner and creator of Paper …

{7.8.2012} oh holy…

HOTNESS! The weather is SIZZLING around the country.  It is always hot here in the AZ, so I feel really bad for those who are not used to it.  Let alone all the storms and fires going on.  So, I find it pretty funny that this week’s CAS Outlawz Challenge is basically Christmas in July.  What a challenge to think of snow and carols when it is over 110 degrees outside.  But, fun none the less.  My card is based on the song Oh Holy Night. Hello cute little camel!  He was going to have 2 more friends (aka, the …
