One More for the Runway

I wanted to do one more for the Runway,

this time, with only paper and an embellishment showcasing the colors.

Here's another look at that fabulous inspiration....

 ummmm, we have snow again guys...

I just laugh because it strikes me as funny. ;)

I'm not tucking that winter coat away any time soon, that's for sure!!!

Bloom Where You Are Planted

I love this sentiment.

I truly believe that God can use us RIGHT where we're at...

be it a doctor's appt., grocery line, waiting room, living room, computer desk...

Simon Says Anything Goes

 I pray you bloom where you are planted today~

Those Who Hear Not the Music

I'm so proud of my dancing daughters.

They work really hard to glorify the Lord in all they do~especially in dance.

I want to bless their teacher with this card who also wants to honor the Lord.

I love these colors and the way they are splashed on this dress with a touch of orange on the corner.

There are so many ways I wanted to go with this beautiful inspiration, that I hope to finish another card in time.

On Time Birthday Card

I crafted a card for my niece...FINALLY, a birthday card that might make it ON TIME this year.

I'm still getting used to 2015...that's my story and I'm sticking to it guys... ;)

When I lay these colors down...all I saw was Japanese and the 70s/80s.

It had me missing my Grandma...I'm actually struggling to recall her faint accent now...I remember she had a really cute one. ;).

I reached for my Sister Stamps that my sister sent me from Hawaii
 (yes, my literal sister sends me sister stamps...I just got that!!!).

 This cutie patootie, (since my niece is a cutie patootie) seemed to be handing over a gift.

I was pretty satisfied with the colors already achieved by the strips so I stopped while ahead and left the image alone.

Besides, she might want to color her!

(That's this cardmaker's way of saying she's not confident in her coloring skills,  HA!)

Ok, enough chatterboxing so that I can actually get this in the mail and meet a birthday on time.

Don't hold your breath; I still have to buy the gift card.

Speaking of gift cards, one of the cards I purchased over Christmas wasn't activated....keep those receipts guys.

Human error is going to happen with humans.

It just happens.

Mojo Throwdown

Today I was able to rest up some and fit some stamping time in.

I used the technique from Make It Monday #204: Watercolor Smooshing to create the

blue panel here...doesn't it almost look like sky?

I've had Mr. Blue Bug-eyes in my stash for years...isn't he a hoot???

Now there are only 4 of these hairclips staring back at me.

Check out the sketch at

My colors are from
