Hybrid Card

I love this hybrid flower that is the January hybrid challenge at Scrap Orchard.  I used the papers from the kit Namaste, which are fantastically arty. I added a few buttons that my Make it Crafty secret pal sent me, and the card was done!

Be Brave

I've been taking two online classes with Juliette Crane - Serendipity 2 and How to Paint Whimsical Animals.  I haven't had much of a chance over the last month to work on either with the holidays and being sick twice.  I finally got some time today to put on canvas an idea that has been in my brain for the last month.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.


I'd like to enter this canvas in the January Mixed Media challenge - new to you.  I used my new Shiva artist painstiks and gelatos.

Happy Creating!

Nerdy Horse Card

I haven't been around much recently.  I haven't had much mojo and my crafty area was a disaster.  We rearranged last weekend, and last night I set up a place where I could color.  I had so much fun!  I got caught up on DT cards, which you'll see over the next few weeks.  

I even had time to play with a new 2 Cute Ink.   I had fun playing, which I haven't done in a long time.  I picked out the papers first before I started coloring, which resulted in an unusual color choice for my horse, but I'm really liking it.

Celebrating Pets at 2 Cute Ink

We're celebrating pets with the new challenge at 2 Cute Ink Challenges this fortnight.  I went for a CAS card with the new digi - Fall in Love Kitties.  I love the way the pink and white pops on the kraft card.

2 Cute Ink Challenge #119 - yellow, orange, and brown

It's time for a new challenge at 2 Cute Ink!  This fortnight we're all about the fall colors.  I'm loving the trees around my house right now and they are the perfect inspiration for the yellow, orange, and brown challenge at 2 Cute Ink.  I made my card using Give Thanks.  I cut a window in the front of the card and put the sentiment on the inside.  I framed it with some gorgeous ribbon that I had from May Arts and finished it off with a little flower paper strip that I had left over from another project.
