Another Tag Card~SMILE

These colors make me smile~so does my funny bow. ;)

Here is another entry for


I've been up an hour or so and I can tell it's going to be one of "those" unconventional days...hahahaha...so I thought it was the perfect day to post this card. ;)

I have a feeling I'm going to need extra smiles, extra prayers and a really, really good sense of humor.

Baby So Sweet

These papers and colors just sort of fell together for me yesterday...

I think it can be for a boy or a girl, don't you?

I mean, the flower is traditionally girly...but the colors can go masculine if I need a boy card in a pinch.

There are those "surprise" babies, so I think this is a safe card. ;)


Thanks for stopping by friends~

Never Enough Dots for Rainbows

I will never have enough dot stamps~


I pulled out five sets to create this scene~and I still could have used more!!!

I found this extremely therapeutic...so expect more dotty creations in the near future.

You've been properly warned people.


Have a blessed day~

Today I'm playing with nail polish, smiley faces and black and white stripes...it's like I'm a teen again.


Mr. Smiley is floating on a vellum scalloped layer that has been edged with nail polish...

look, you can touch-up a clothes pin to match!

Lovin' vellum, but don't like the way it curls up in humid weather???

This is one way to weigh the edges down.

I've got lots and lots of different dimensional fun going on here for

HB2U Ombre

Whenever I create a masculine card ...I mentally pat myself on the back.

Why oh why, don't I make more of them???

I have enough men in my family that I need to send cards to, and I really need to get a move on their cards before their birthdays sneak up on me.

I used the technique over at

hosted by Laurie.

I bought some makeup wedges today that I plan to keep near my inks~I love that idea she shared in the video!

Ok, survived until Wednesday...hahahaha, how about you, friends????
