Almost 10 years ago, during PCCrafter’s heyday as provider of digital art, Laurie Furnell (one of PCCrafter’s popular artists), released the set “Cats”. I remember being so excited (I confess to being a cat person) and bought it right away. The nice thing with these older digital art sets by PCCrafter was that, not only did they include the painted version of each image, but also the line art. Continue reading »

Trust me, this version of a slider card is really easy, thanks to this idea of Alice Golden! For this card I started by printing a hot air balloon digi image (you can grab it at the end of this post) on water color paper. Continue reading »

This card was inspired by the tiles in the background used by Etsy shop Vintage Atmosphere (vintageatmosphere), the inspiration site chosen this week by guest hostess Nancy Williams. It is also for 5 challenges during Dare to Get dirty Week at SplitcoastStampers.

The fact that this card reminds my kids of the movie Frozen was not my intention. It just evolved that way. My real intention was to combine as much challenges as I could from the Dare to Get Dirty Week at SplitcoastStampers. So, I started with this card last Monday, and every day, I would incorporate one or more challenges into this card until it was finished – I could cross out 14 challenges with this one (I think this is a record for me, LOL!). Before I continue, here is a pic of the card when opened (click on the image to make it larger): Continue reading »

It’s my second daughter’s birthday today – she is 19! I still remember the sleep-deprived, exhausted, and chaotic days and weeks following her birth, but my husband and I agree: we wouldn’t have had it any other way. We are proud of the person she has turned out to be – and also proud that we have survived those early days, LOL! This card is a humorous and realistic take on being parents – I know a lot of you can relate!

Ever since I saw the bread tab card by Terri Davenport on PaperCrafts, I’ve been saving bread tabs. For the middle tab, I think I bought a bag of bread at Costco because of it, LOL! It’s so worth it with that expression, don’t you agree? Continue reading »

Several kids we know are having birthdays this month so I’m busy creating cards for them. This one is for my godson. Originally, I planned to use a plane sticker, but it turned out that I don’t have one (go figure, LOL!); next, I thought I’d use a plane button, but it was too small; so I ended up paper-piecing a plane instead.
