Which way to Celebrate
I love this die set from My Favorite Things (currently out of stock but there are tons of great dies in the OCS store!) I’m really drawing to colorful cards these days so here’s a quick and easy card I made using the MFT die set.
Do you love to doodle? I recently saw doodling as the theme of an online challenge and it reminded me about how I love to doodle! Do you ever do that? Get out of the habit of using a technique you love and then remember it and fall in love all over again?! I used my Uniball white pen…if you don’t own this pen, you should.
Thanks for popping by and taking a look!
supplies: MFT Dies, my favorite TomBow Adhesive, Uniball pen, misc cardstock

Dreaming of Spring
As a last minute favor for Design team member Aaemie I get to post another card this week, and it's a bright spring colored card to finally celebrate the arrival of spring here in Alberta. ( Shhhhh, don't say it too loud, or the winter fairies might just decide to return and share a few more flakes of snow - horror!!! )

For the Love of a Tractor
Last week was my son's birthday and this is the card I made for him. He loves country life and tractors (especially a certain brand) so I had to use this image from High Hopes Stamps coloured with my Copic markers.

Recently I’ve been really drawn to cards with a full spectrum of colors! I love rainbows so I decided to make an airplane rainbow with these Lawn Fawn stamps and dies!

I’d love to hear what one of your favorite trends is in paper is?

Just a little bit of sunshine!
I recently ordered Simple Stories Summer Fresh paper pack and it is AMAZING! Both of the squares of paper on my card are from that paper pack. I love that the paper looks paper pieced! It adds layer to my card without actually adding any physical dimension. And it also has some ready made sentiment strips. I love the patterns of the regular paper in this set also. Go take a look if you haven’t seen this paper yet!
My stamp is Suspenders Saturated Canary and colored with my copics. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look!
Supplies: Simple Stories paper, Saturated Canary, Copic Markers, misc buttons, TH tiny attacher
