Dad Slippers

I was born and raised in Hawaii where we call flip flops slippers...

pronounced by the locals "slippahs". ;)

Literally my dad wears them everyday, everywhere.

As I'm getting older, I wonder how in the world his arches can take it.

Just sayin'. 

 The Greetery Dad Squared, Honey Bee Flip Flop Builder dies, Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangles, Reverse Confetti Sun & Sea Patterned Paper

I used patterned paper, cardstocks and dies for this one.

Thank you for your sweet visit today!

I whipped up a card for my daughter attending a baby shower~

Papertrey Ink Bitty Baby Blessings (retired), Winnie & Walter Cuddles Cutaway die (no longer in business), Avery Elle Wonky Stitches, Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors, Reverse Confetti This & That paper pad,  Tonic Studios Rose Gold Mirror Cardstock

The sentiment die is Winnie & Walter (remember that company that closed?) ;(

and the cute onesie is retired from Papertrey Ink.

Inspired by the words "like a child"~

I've been wanting to try Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors, so I got a small set to play with!

I love the creamy matte texture it achieves.

 I watercolored a soft wash for the stitched panel~

Guest Designer Let's Squash It


The Greetery Dad Squared, Darice Embossing Folder Dotted Trees, watercolors, Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangles, Hero Arts 

I'm honored to be a guest designer at Let's Squash It for their newest theme~

My recent visit to a local consignment shop introduced me to this Dotted Tree Embossing Folder from Darice.

I watercolored the panel.

When it dried, I inked the embossing folder on the raised areas and ran it through my machine.

I hope you join the challenge, it's a great way to utilize those amazing folders!

Please join us there~

Bright City

I'm a sucker for cityscapes.

Dangle one in front of my eyes and I'm all about it. ;)

Hero Arts City HeroScape, Brutus Monroe Black Foam Tape, Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangles


I'm a city girl, so visiting the biggest nearby city, while hosting family, is my idea of fun!


I wanted to dip into my endless roll of Brutus Monroe black foam tape for this dark cardbase.

I don't need to hoard it, the roll is like the size of a pizza, no joke.

Have a good one friends~
