hello and welcome, it is time for another mojo monday sketch..this sketch is a favorite for sure! Of course I put my twist on the sketch! I have used concord & 9th stamps and dies...luv the outcome! I have watercolored the background and the added the love die cut that has been inked using my new altenew inks and let's just say I am in luv...they are quite amazing! A sweet little tag and a few sequins bring the sketch all together. Have a super duper monday....instead of working for it, make it work for YOU!

The design team is showcasing non other than altenew...talk about fantastic florals! Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!




I had a blast with this weeks card, I used a fun tim holtz lattice stencil for the background, I am playing along with inspired by and I luv the contrast in the photo; tried to replicate it with my card. I used one single bloom and watercolored it with prima confection pans. The birthday sentiment is from a simon set and I added a few my mind's eye enamel dots. I did not have any altenew inks, but I may or may not have ordered more than half of them...aaannnnd I may or may not order the rest this week *grin*...I hear so much good about those inks, so I am giving them a try..cannot wait to share! Be sure to stop by the rest of the simon teams blogs and see what they have created!

be mine always


A quick valentine card for my hubby, using my new stamps from the stamp market...luv this new company! I used the background heart stamp to make a make a subtle heart background and then I used the heart die and cut out the heart shape with watercolor paper. I then sponged tim holtz inks around it. The sentiment is from a carta bella stamp and the sweet little add on sticker phrases are crate paper. I added some striped bakers twine and a couple of grey gemstones. Have a super sunday!

mojo monday 483/mojo483 - happy birthday


For todays mojo monday sketch, I have used a little watercoloring splash background and then layered it with a big 'ole heart and a sweet die cut flower. The birthday sentiment is a verve plain jane stamp, one of my favorites. It is unavailable now, but hopefully will be added to a new set soon. Super cas for me today, I really wanted to add a few more gems, but refrained!

words with meaning - love your whole story, even if it hasn't been the perfect fairy tale.
