Some People Make the World Special.....





The cobalt blue shade in the Winsor and Newton watercolor set is just lovely, so I couldn't resist using it for the MFT Color Challenge.  The hydrangea is from Technique Tuesday and the sweet sentiment is a retired Verve stamp.  The neutrals were in my scrap collection, and the dimensions were so similar to this week's Mojo Sketch that I couldn't resist using in just one more time.

Thanks so much for visiting,
Christine

You're "Owlsome"

 Spring Break travels didn't take us to warm climates, but I did have the opportunity to visit a favorite LSS and picked up So Owlsome by Lawn Fawn.  The cute little owls were heat embossed and were tinted with Winsor and Newton watercolors, another Spring Break treat.  (I love the vivid pigments!) 

Thanks for stopping by,
Christine

Color Challenge: Happy Birthday



Dreaming of spring on this very cold and rainy Spring Break. Even if it's dreary outside, this pretty MFT color palette will bring spring to the crafting table.  It was fun to play along with the color challenge using MFT's Birds of a Feather dies.

Wishing you sunshine,
Christine

You Sparkle and Shine


My most recent stamp order included Shine On by Honeybee Stamps.  It has been on my wish list for a while and is lots of fun to work with.  The inside is stamped with a birthday greeting.

Thanks for taking a look,

AHSC 306: Celebrate Your Day



Happy Wednesday!  Today is the day the the AHSC design team members share their interpretations of Michelle's sketches.  The Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge is set up in such a fun way:  a new sketch is posted each Monday, and design team inspiration is show on Wednesday.  That way, participants can choose to play either before or after being influenced by the DT's interpretations of the sketch.  Such fun!  Hope you will visit the AHSC Blog and play along!

This card came together so quickly as the stamped panel was in the pretty glass bowl I keep on my desk for "extra pieces".  Somehow, I manage to make too many elements for one card and not enough for two....but somehow those extra lovelies and practice panels eventually make  it onto cards.

The "practice wreath" on this card created with W Plus 9's Freehand Florals and was cut down with a stitched rectangle.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from Verve.
Thanks so much for visiting,
Christine

Mojo Monday: Cast Your Cares on the Lord


Pictured above is take 2 for this card.  I tried the "ink-smooshing" technique shown in Julee's video, cut my very first flower using Altenew's Garden Picks Dies, and really smeared the sentiment.  Boo hoo!  I don't like this background as well....just goes to show that every "ink-smooshing" experience is unique!

If you haven't tried the inking technique or a square card, both are lots of fun!

Thanks for visiting,
Christine
