Almost Friday


These Fridays don't mean what they used to, but it will someday!



Picket Fence Studios Here is Where I Work sentiment, Erin Lee Creative Triangle Collage die, Tonic Studios Marina Mist Mirror Cardstock, American Crafts mini stapler


Simon Says (Wednesday): Layer it Up


One of my fave dies to use lately...Erin Lee Creative Triangle Collage.


This time I tilted it at an angle.







There's one thing about me...I LOVE BLUE. 


So of course I had to link at Just Us Girls Challenge with light, medium, and dark blues (even the ink and staples are blue)!



(My fave color is blue)


Thank you for your sweet visit today~

Impression Obsession Mom Life sentiment, Erin Lee Creative Nesting Heart Die

 

 

This fun sentiment is new to me ;).

 

It's the reason I ordered this set. 

 

 

I'm thinking it's a Valentine Card to encourage another Mom...

 

cuz moms get it.

With Sympathy Cranes




This card came together with little fuss.


Brutus Monroe Paper Cranes/Alabaster ink, Tim Holtz Tonic Studios Deckle Torn Edge Trimmer




I love this Inspired By Challenge photo and it reminds me 

of the beautiful crane 

image from Brutus Monroe.






I inked up with their Alabaster and stamped on Midnight Cardstock.






A quick trim with the Tim Holtz Deckle Trimmer, and it was done.

 

 I always struggle with sympathy cards, so it's nice to have a design to pull from when I don't feel creative.

 

 

 

Thank you for your sweet visit today!

INkspirational DT ~Mask

 

It's time for a new challenge prompt at INkspirational!





Brutus Monroe Healthcare Super Hero Coloring Page, Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangle, Tim Holtz Distress inks



This time the prompt is Mask~








This wonderful image is a coloring book page offered free at Brutus Monroe. ;)

Instead of coloring, I color blended with Tim Holtz Distress inks, while the rectangle die was still in place.

Please join us with your unique creation!

Deepest Sympathy



Another sympathy card was needed, unfortunately, and I didn't want to have to think too hard about it.


Hero Arts My Monthly Hero December 2020 Kit,Verve sentiment, Brutus Monroe Cardstock (Vineyard/Aubergine)




The following challenge encourages us to CASE a Hero Arts designer's work, and guidance was what I needed.








 I was inspired by Dana Joy's use of this gorgeous Hero Arts kit!



It was my first time using it (first time layering it and such), so I followed her example but changed out the colors and made it a square card. ;)
