*** Something different **

 Hello everyone,

I hope you are well and enjoying the weekend.

I'm here today to tell you it's time for a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin

where we are challenging you to use something not usually seen on your cards. This was a perfect time for me to use some of the unusual items I tend to save.  This little flag was originally perched on a delicious tower of individual sized bundt cakes that I received for my birthday in February and I thought it was too cute to trash.

I've coloured with Copics a digital stamp called Aurora Pandemic from TheEastWind. The sentiment has been stamped with versamark, white embossing powder added and heat embossed, cut using an MFT die.   This card is for one of my granddaughters.

***Couldn't help it**

 Hello folks,

Are you ready for the weekend?   
Can't say that I am as all days run together now.  
We are in a stay-at-home mandate again...sure hope this helps bring the numbers down. 

Today's card is one I created because the image made me smile. 
 As most of us are in "Spring cleaning" mode I thought this snarky little gal 
has come up with all the answers.  Pretty cas design, coloured with Copics.

Hello everyone,

Today it's time for another Christmas challenge, hosted by our lovely N-Eva at

Yes, I've been shopping again, this time with a purchase of Birch Press Design dies called Trina Snowflake.  This set comes with 3 dies that coordinate to make this lovely snowflake.

Roses, Roses, Roses

 Good day folks,

Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

I've a just for fun card today for you and it's another slimline.

This one involved a lot of colouring, both with pencils and markers. I was not happy with how it was going so just kept on adding pencil layers until I was somewhat satisfied.  Hubby liked it. The stamp is from Stampendous, banner die and sentiment stamp, Lawn Fawn.

** No squares at Fab'n'Funky **

 Hello everyone,

Hope your are all doing well.  Weather has changed again so we are back into winter.  
I bundle up and take walks along the lake shore. I did get a glimpse of the snowy owl
 perched up high watching all the folks enjoying the day. Interesting there were no Canada Geese, ..could it be our visitor from the arctic keeping them away?

Today starts a new challenge at

"No Square Cards"

I've created another slimline card for this challenge. These little gnomes are from an MFT stamp and die set.  I've coloured them with Copics.  The background was made using Distress Oxide ink.  I still need some practice with backgrounds so I'm going to try using my brayer on the next card.
