Mojo Monday/MOJO356-Smile

Welcome, who is feeling tall & skinny? lol, I am only in the card making area...it is Mojo Monday and it is tall & skinny week. I have used the new Verve set called Happy Place, sweet set. I pushed myself to use the colors from the Color Q this week, I struggle with purples; so I feel like I overcome my fear today...lol...I know it is a pink/purple, but none the less I used my purple colored pencil. I had a lot of fun with my card, these flowers are sooo fun...I luv'em. I can't wait to se what you create this week..sparkle & shine!

Eat Cake!

I am up today on the Waltzingmouse Team Talk Blog. I have created a card using the WM Eat Cake set, I so luv this set...you can create your own designs...so sweet! I went with a pink, black, and white color combo...so girly. I used gemstones and stickels on the cake flowers. The happy birthday sentiment is from the WM set Frame It, it is full of great sentiments. Be sure to check out the new dies from Waltzingmouse, and a SALE on all Waltzingmouse Christmas stamps, use code GetJolly to save 20%. There are more new goodies to come soon at Waltzingmosue...sparkle & shine!

Welcome to Wednesday and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This weeks challenge is Emboss It!

Don't forget every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...woohoo...definitely worth playing for!


I luv this weeks Simon Says Stamp Challenge, emboss it! I want to use embossing pastes on every card...lol. It gives so much texture and depth, but also reminds me of mixed media...luv! I have dry embossed the sweet little butterfly too. I have kept my card CAS this week, I wanted to show off the embossing paste; it is silver! Wendy Vecchi has lots to choose from, I still need to get the black....teehehehe. I have used a few drops of Heidi Swapp color shine, luv this stuff too. A super simple card, but it has lots of interest...sparkle & shine!
