So Sorry...

Hi! I hope you are having a great weekend! I spent the day with my older sister and Mom today. We had a lot of fun checking out a couple of antique malls. I love looking for vintage lace and old buttons to use on my cards. I came across a booth that was selling stamps sets, bling, embossing powders, ribbons. Most of it was Stampin' Up stuff but I did find a PTI stamp set that have had on my wish list...score!!

I needed to make a sympathy card. We lost our neighbor to prostate cancer. They are such a good people and so nice. We will definitely miss him.  

I used a couple different sets on the card. The flowers are from Gina K's Dogwood and Butterfly set and the sentiment is from Framed Greetings. I colored the flowers with copics - YR000, YR01, YR02/YG61, YG67/Y11, Y000. I used the same colors along with the colorless blender for the background.

I added a bit of Dazzling Details to the flowers. The pattern paper is My Minds Eye - My Favorite Things. I finished off the card with ribbon, paper flower and leaf flourish.

Thank you for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Spring Flowers

I want to share a card that I made for my GDT with The Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge this past week. The challenge was Spring. Since we are still experiencing colder than normal temperatures and getting snow, I couldn't have been happier to create a spring card! 

The image is one of Sherri Baldy's My Besties which you can find here. I colored her with copics and added stickles to the red dots, heart and flowers. The pattern papers are scraps from My Minds Eye, Echo Park and Simple Stories. 

I finished off the card with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, flourish diecut and ribbon. 

Thank you for visiting!

Paper Crane Kindness


I think spring is on its way to Southern WI. We were in the low 50's today and I was even able to enjoy it for a little while :) 

I have a card to share today follows this month's Reverse Confetti Sketch for you to try...a sketch after my own heart with all those layers! 


Here is my take on the sketch...

I used the Paper Crane stamp set. I just love the sentiments that are included in the set.
I colored the crane with copics - BG00, BG53, BG57.
The pattern paper are from Fancy Pants. Don't you love the spring colors! 

I did have two horizontal strips of paper like the sketch has but I did not like it and of course I had already glued them down so I covered them up with the ribbon. I always say there are no mistakes in paper crafting, only opportunities! lol!

Thank your for stopping by!
