ombre challenge

Today I have a card I made with Moxie Fab's Ombre Challenge in mind. It's a fairly simple card in nature but I just love the colors!

When I make cards I like to keep them simple enough to actually mail. I also got to play with a new stamp (the diamonds) with this card.

Thanks for stopping by!

wishi washi

Today's card is using LOTS of fun washi tape. That has been one of the latest fun crazes. The Moxie Fab website decided to have a challenge on using washi tape. I just happen to have a few...20ish...or more rolls of the stuff so I had to give it a whirl.

Here's my card...

(stamp is from Hero Arts- Studio Calico, days of the week washi tape is from KI memories)

2 chicks, a bunny & a stud

Today's layout came from a sketch challenge on life paper scrapbook. I am reallllllly trying to wake up my mojo. It's been asleep for soooo long. So I figured the best way to shake things up is to look for sketches and other challenges that force me to think outside of the box.

Here is the sketch...

Here is my take on the sketch...

I Spy Spring

I don't know about you, but I love Spring. I love seeing all the mama robin's ready to bust, seeing all my hydrangeas sprouting new growth. Everything feels clean this time of year.

I purchased some new stamps from Unity that I had been drooling over for some time now. These little girls remind me of my own not so little ones. I love the carefree looks, the wind and the peacefulness.

The last few months have been challenging to say the least...we lost our primary source of income, scrambled to try and replace that, lost our secondary source of income, lost insurance, and then of course everyone had to get sick! LOL We are once again employed and everyone has managed to heal from being sick, but I am ready for that peacefulness.

I have wanted to learn how to use Copic markers for awhile now. I am fascinated with their beauty and how much you can do with them. So I have started slowly teaching myself. In the process of learning I have discovered how very relaxing coloring is. It is becoming my go to activity when I need to decompress.

So here is one of my "girls", colored with Copics.
