I'm back with an entry into the current Lawnscaping Challenge - Texture! The idea is to use some kind of texture on your card. I decided to do this by making the clouds in the background textured - I used flock (which you add after heat embossing while the ink... Continue reading

For the current Lawnscaping Challenge I was inspired by the colors we were required to use, of course, but also by the exciting news my husband and I found out a few days ago - we're expecting a little boy!! So, I'm 20 weeks and halfway through my first pregnancy... Continue reading

So.... it's been a while, I know. Since I've blogged, since I've entered a challenge, and since I've even crafted! I do have a good excuse, though, and that is that I've been busy finishing up my coursework for my doctorate. The good news? The semester (from hell) is finally... Continue reading

Hi everyone! I'm back with my entry into the latest Lawnscaping Challenge - Bling It! I was excited about this challenge because I'm great at collecting a lot of sparkly, blingy things, but I'm not always great about actually using them! For instance, I love the recent fascination with sequins... Continue reading

Good evening! This is just a quick post to enter a card into the current Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - Anything Goes. Last week I colored these owl images with my new Spectrum Noir markers, so I decided to use them for this card. This is a fairly simple card... Continue reading

Hi there, I'm back with a second entry to Lawnscaping's Dust 'em off challenge! For this card, I dusted off my unused Critters in the Dog Park stamp set and my slightly used Belinda's Borders stamp set. I made a *mostly* one-layer card again, using the masking technique again to... Continue reading
