Just got stuck.....

Have you ever created something really bwautiful, but couldn't finish the card? Nothing you try works right, or fits? I hit that wall with this card. Tell me what you think.

I loved the flower, but and the magenta mat was the perfect compliment, but the card base color was the problem. Nothing worked. Then I couldn't fit a sentiment on it at all! HELP! I posted it anyway. Maybe someone will comment a suggestion for me.


Inspired again....

Happy Sunday!
I was inspired again by Karen D at her blog - Snippets. Take a look at her newest creation, then take a look at my versions. What do you think?
 This one I used peacock feathers and silver embossing powder.
 My second try, I used spiced marmalade and silver embossing powder.

I sure like the look, and the fact that it is not perfect sure helps me hide imperfections....They look like I meant them!  lol! Thanks for dropping in.
I joined in some great challenges too. See below:

Simon Says- FLOWERS

Craft Stamper- ANYTHING GOES


Purple is wonderfully peaceful

Purple is wonderful,
I think 45% of everything I own is a shade of purple, violet or lavender. Clothing, accessories, shoes, coat, etc...It is an import part of me, and of course in my crafting! Take a look!
Seriously, you can't go wrong with purple! This card is so peaceful to me. I adore it. I distressed the edges, so it has a loved worn look to it. Thanks for stopping in. Have a peaceful-purple day!


Butterflies, Butterflies, Butterflies....

I admit it, 
I LOVE butterflies! I think I have 10 different butterfly stamps in my tiny collection, this is, by far, the biggest butterfly I have. It is so easy to work with when I stamp with my MISTI tool. Again, I am trying to improve my copic skills. What do you think? Take a look:

I originally tried to create this card using a mask, but I messed that all up! This version required no mask at all, I simply overlapped them in small parts. I then used the masks to help color in the background without running into the butterflies. LOVE the look! Paper crafting will forever intrigue me with all the new techniques/skills you can master!


Come and Get It- CARD FOR A WOMAN

Craft Stamper- ANYTHING GOES

Where the Heart is Challenge - ANYTHING GOES - One layer

Just Us Girls - Butterflies 

Heard the News?

Good Morning!
I am determined to keep my creative flow going. Here is another creation. Take a Look:
I am so sad that Whiff of Joy is no more. I LOVE Henry the Mouse. I wish I had purchased more while we was still available. I am getting better at Copic coloring (I think) All the videos make it look so easy.  The Sentiment came from my brain and my font list. More to come!


Happy Sunday Challenges

Happy Sunday
I was in the mood to participate in a few challenges, I have been intrigued with a few particular bogs lately. I call them my "GOTO blogs". I go to them first to get fresh inspiration.  One of my goto blogs is SNIPPETS (Karen D).

She plays in many challenges and so I thought, if she does, so can I! Here is my card for today. Take a look:
