Hi there! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where Melissa is challenging all to create a project featuring Kraft and colored pencils. I created a card for my sweet sister Marlene featuring a pretty image from the Year of the Flowers: Sweet Peas:
It's been quite some time since I used this stamp set in my card making so it was fun to put it to good use:
 For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge:
In celebration of my dear sister Tina's birthday last week, Tina and I went hiking in the Superstition Mountains located approximately 45 minutes from my home. Lots of beautiful wild poppies in bloom:
Here's Tina posing for a photo :)
I was approximately a 5 mile hike into the canyon:
I also have a 9" x 12" painting to share featuring roses inspired by Daniel Keys:

I'm linking my painting to the Paint Party Friday site:

Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! Today I'm joining along with the PTI Make It Monday challenge where the theme is Celebrating 2009 the Past, Present and Future of several of the stamp sets released in that year. I made a birthday card for my dear sister Tina featuring the Damask Design stamp set from 2009. I stamped then heat embossed the background using one of the damask design stamps to create the white on white background.
For the focal point, I stamped an orange peony using the stamp from Pretty Peonies:

Hi there! Today it's my turn to share a project on the Poppystamps blog. I made a heart themed card:
My card features a fun tag with a heart shaped shaker. To create this card, I created a tag using a Festival Tag die which I die cut a heart shaped window using the Capri Heart die, filled with sequins and beads then layered with another Festival Tag die cut. The fun background was made using the Heart Pattern Plate die.
