Hello Friends!! How are you today?? Any time to get inky?? I finally had some time last night and it was wonderful. A special friend of mine is turning 50 and she's celebrating it in a very cool way. Virginia is linking up all of the cards that her friends design for her!! I think this is so much fun & hope you can check it out here. You might be able to tell what a big heart she has plus she's been a great friend to me!! I am blessed to call her a friend. There's so much more to say but, words are not my forte so HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet VIRGINIA :)

I truly enjoy working with these die cut butterflies from Spellbinders. I embossed this sentiment with clear powder on white paper. I layered up some scraps from a card I was working on for next week (and hopefully my first video) The butterfly has a layer of vellum and I used this paper from Bo Bunny for the layers and the butterfly. Ranger's Rock Candy was applied to the butterfly and while it was drying I created the flower with twine. I cut the butterfly in half then, glued it down under the flower with Glossy Accents. ( sometimes I do things backwards usually cause the idea comes in your head after something is already glued down. )  Here is another card I created with one of these butterflies.

I had to make ONE more while I was cleaning up.

Have you heard of Goosebumps? Finally I had time to play with it. To me it's like spray on Glossy Accents that has a texture to it. LOVE it..you can sort of see it on the butterfly above. The edges were cut with more Spellbinders and the black sentiments are from SRM stickers.
I hope you find the joy of this season this weekend. Thanks so much for your visit. Hugs, Kathy



P.S. In this post I was giving away a Copic book and some white paint. I would like to wish a big congrats to  Neha Jain!!!  (I'll email you tomorrow)   Stay tuned I will have more giveaways soon.

Quick Penny Black card

IMG_4490
Hello Friends, I have a super quick share for you today. This card was created for my Uncle that recently retired from decades of work in the field of agriculture. He did work with cows so I thought this Penny Black image was perfect. 
This may go in the record book for the shortest post ever for me. I am in the process of trying to break some old habits,  prioritizing what's important and reflecting for the upcoming new year. 
Have a happy day! Hugs, Kathy
P.S. I cut this die for the "tag" with the SRM sentiment.

Moving Card
Hello Friends, How are you today?? Today's project you may have seen on the Penny Black Blog? PB is showcasing "anything but, a card" this week...fun! 


When I say "moving" does it raise your blood pressure?? Moving is so stressful .... I thought I would create a  shadow box frame to cheer up a friend up & help remind her what's important.  She's always saying how important it is to take time for the little things therefore, I felt this applied to her situation before she moves, during and after.
My cloud is a little crooked..yikes! The GA wasn't dry when I took the photo so the cloud slipped :( 
Moving Card
I was so excited to finally put this stamp press to use and I was so delighted and relieved that this "Victorian Home" fit so perfectly in the truck. All you have to do is stamp, color and cutout your images. Apply Glossy accents to wheels, windshield and the front  head light.

If you look closely you can see the reflection of my phone (camera) in most of these photos.... I tried several times in different areas and different ways without any success. The background is part of the "photo" that comes with the frame. I thought it was perfect starting point.       When I see a small frame on sale I purchase it for project on a rainy or snowy day.The clouds were attached with Glossy Accents and the images were attached with Scrap Dots

I almost forgot that I stamped extra shutters and used more Scrap Dots to attach them.I apologize for not having a list of Copic colors for you & I did use some Tombow markers on parts of the house.  The windows have a nice coat of Glossy Accents on them & look cool in person. Any questions?? Thank You again for your visit it's always appreciated. Hugs, Kathy
