Here's my masculine creation from last month:


I thought it would be fun to not only feminize it, but jazz it up for a celebration.

 Summer is the time for bright colors~perfect for neon patterned paper.

 I built up from there with a pink lobster and coordinating colors.

It should scream pah~teyyy. ;)

Have a good one~


Dream Big

When I stamp, I end up with extra finished images.

I like to play around with different color combinations, so I almost always have leftovers.

These seemed to play nice together~

 I followed CAS(E) this Sketch this week:


 I have a renewed fascination for cars lately...I've been enjoying Comedians In Cars on Netflix.

Jerry Seinfield highlights the coolest cars I've ever seen!

The interviews are fun too.

The show didn't get great reviews...but thumbs up from me!

Abstract Creative Lifestyle

I approach life creatively~

park like I've never done it before...

cook like a novice...

and sometimes speak as if I'm fresh to the planet.


Let's just say that my creativity is better translated into cards than anything else. ;)

Abstract designs are my favorite to make.
They're like the jazz genre of the cardmaking world. 
With chill vibes and a relaxed atmosphere...it's all about expression.

Every day is an opportunity to experience joy.

 The tag fits the "t" factor of the following challenge:
