Easter/Spring card challenge

Today I finished another one of my Easter cards.  I also submitted this to Simon Says Stamp Challenge- Easter/Spring card.  I love the way the Bazzil paper takes to embossing with my Big Shot.  The Prima flowers gave this card a delicate finish.  I had never heat embossed on a paper doily before, so I decided to try it.  I enjoy the way it turned out.

Simon Says Stamp Sketch Challenge

Here is the card I made today for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  The challenge this week was to create a card using one of two sketches.  I chose sketch 1.  Thank you, Simon Says Stamp!  I love your challenges.

I used the Simon Says Stamp card kit from October 2012.  The decorated paper is from Fancy Pants Country Boutique 6x6 patterned paper pad.  The stamps are Simon Says Stamp Forever and Always stamp kit.

A Bit O'Green Challenge ....

For this week's challenge sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, I made this card.  The Graphic 45 peacock feather paper caught my eye today and I knew that I wanted to make a card with it.  I have really been enjoying this color combination.

Just a Note....

This weekend, I received some of my new supplies from Stampin Up and Simon Says Stamp.  I was so excited.  I decided to make a card using some of my new supplies from Stampin Up and my latest Michael's haul.  

I am loving the colors of this card.  I used My Mind's Eye paper- Dolled Up paper pad and some Stampin Up card stock from the 2011-2013 In Colors.

Little about me....

Hello all,
I created this blog as a way to explore ways of sharing some of my cards, mixed media journal pages and scrapbook layouts. I love paper crafting and mixed media art.  I love combining textures, designs and colors to create something that will put a smile on the receiver's face.   I am new to the blogging world, so please let me know if you have any tips.

THANK YOU for stopping by my blog.
