do all things with love


I had a blast with this card tonight, such a fun color combo and I luv the sentiment. Had to add the little ink stitched heart...sweet. A watercolored background is sooo romantic..I luv the look! I hope you have a great week, I am off after working twenty days in a row without one off...so to say the least..I am over the top excited! Have a shopping trip planned with the hubs and some projects around the house and of course morning coffee on the deck...now that is living!

words with meaning - train yourself to find the blessing in everything.

Hello, this weeks simon says stamp wednesday challenge hip to be square. The design team is spotlighting products from simon says stamp. Don't forgot every week at simon says stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!


I have created a sweet little 3x3 square note card set....a perfect little set to give away to a friend who uses a lot of thank you cards in her line of work. I watercolored the gold background, luv the look and then added a skinny piece of washi tape, I adore gold, pink, and black together...especially black & white stripes....LUV! The tiny sweet flower from the simon set birthday flowers is the main focal point....totally cute!

thank you


sharing a card created for freshly made sketches and the global design colors. I have used the awesome concord & 9th flower set called brushed blossom.  I have used tim holtz water color inks on prima watercoloring paper, luv this textured paper. A few ink splatters using heidi swapps color shines...darlin. And, of course I had to use a little b&w stripped twine, I do luv me some b&w.....hope you have a fabulous weekend.

words with meaning - make today amazing!
