I have this blog as a place to share my creative self -- be it card making, music playing, scrapbooking, altered art, home decor, or whatever direction my art takes me. My dogs are always a part of my home life, so they have to be a part of my blog, too.
I seem to be reaching for different watercolor mediums these days. I have a short tutorial to share, using Spectrum Noir watercolor pencils and a fairly dry paintbrush. I have two cards, both featuring Pickled Potpourri Grand Botanicals digi stamp.
It's Friday! That means it's time for a new challenge at the QKR Stampede Challenge Blog. This week, our optional theme is 'Paper Piecing'. Do you ever have an idea that turns out totally different in real life than it did in your head? Such is the case with this paper pieced card. I had it planned as a summertime-looking green leaf, but just couldn't find the paper to make it look right with the accompanying acorn:
I colored the Sweet Sleep Boy with Copic markers, matching the colors to the background paper (it also came with the set.) What drew me to this set in the first place is the awesome sentiment. I LOVE that verse from 1Samuel1:27! It is absolutely perfect for this card and for the occasion. I have been praying for baby, mom and dad for months now and I want them to know that. Imagine That!

Summer! It starts today, although we've already had a few hot, humid days here in Wisconsin, and a few storms to go with that hot, humid weather. Summer -- lazy days, flip flops, ice cream, popsicles. You gotta love summer! We're featuring bingo cards this week at The Cutting Cafe. You will find many different bingo card sets at The Cutting Cafe, and many different ideas of what can be done with them today on The Cutting Cafe blog. I have one simple idea to share with you featuring the summer bingo cards:

I colored A Phone Call with Copic markers, then used a Spellbinders die to cut it out. The 'Hello' sentiment is a die from Desert Craftin Divas.
