Free As A Bird

Keeping up with my “work”.  “Work” is subjective and mine includes the pleasure of crafting, hanging out in the Studio and generally making a mess…that is until I put everything back in it’s place. So two more combined challenges:  Try Stampin’ On Tuesday (#518) for the sketch and Colour INKspiration (#105) for the color scheme.Continue reading “Free As A Bird”

Floral Square Circles – Hello

Here it is!  Sunday’s Sketch – SS003…a quick post as I have the Weekend Challenge yet to do… A little creative paper snipping to use a chosen row from the Tic Tac Toe Challenge (#116).  Even though I was a guest designer for this board…there are seven more choices and I wanted to play.

All of these colors are found in the Sale-a-bration Flowers and Field Designer Series Paper. PINK: Flirty Flamingo, YELLOW: SoContinue reading “Our Little World of Friendship”

A Bird tells me “We’re the Best of Friends”

A sweet simple sketch from Freshly Made Sketches – FMS474. Keeping the sketch in the same orientation, I changed my layout to be horizontal as it worked really well to show off the patterned paper I selected for my card idea of blending current with new.  It always seems we focus on new products featuredContinue reading “A Bird tells me “We’re the Best of Friends””
