Joyful Make it Monday



Hey everyone!  I just got a PTI haul in the mail and couldn't wait to get this gorgeous Choose Joy sentiment set inky.  Melissa also used it in this week's Make it Monday video, BONUS!  I didn't have any PTI watercolour pages so I made my own.  This was the first card in the set.  Thanks for  stopping by!

Happy Day ~ Mojo Monday


Hi everyone!  We had our big community garage sale yesterday and I'm happy to report that we sold over half of our "treasures."  This was cause for celebration as it always feels good to purge.  I had some time after the sale to make a card for Mojo Monday.  AND it's prize time so head over to the Mojo Monday blog for all the details on how you could win some amazing new Verve!  Hope your week is off to a great start!

Happy Mother's Day ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge




 
Hi everyone!  I'm back with the newest challenge over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…
 

 


 I couldn't wait to get creating after seeing this photo...I love all those pretty girlie colours and patterns.  I focused on the polka dots for my background, the lace (aka the doily on my card), the flowers, and all the colours on those charming pillows.

Mother's Day Wishes



Hello friends!  Yikes! Where have I been?  Just busy with work and family and getting some Mother's Day cards ready to take into work.  I'll be sharing them over the next few weeks, starting with this one for the PTI Blog Hop today.  Here's the inspiration photo...


I was not feeling the literal meaning of this image, so I went "impressionistic," that is, my impression of the colours, the circles, and stitched lines, all on a neutral background.  I really love how the Rosie Posie flowers came together :)  Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Thanks for Everything



Hey there friends!  I'm sharing a card I made for the PTI Make it Monday challenge.  We are being asked to use a script sentiment with ink and a brush to make a watercolour effect.  What do you think?  Does it look like I hand painted the "thanks"?  I think so!  Thanks for stopping by!  We have been experiencing gorgeous weather here in the interior of BC...27 degrees Celsius, the perfect Moe temperature!  Hope you are enjoying some spring weather too :)

An Amazing Birthday ~ Viva La Verve

Just a Note ~ Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge



Hi everyone!  I'm back with the newest challenge over on the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge blog.  This time we’re inspired by this photo…


When I saw the gorgeous script in the photo, I immediately thought of my new Concord & 9th Sophisticated Script Stamp Set.  When I saw how Laurie Willison was using it, I had to have my own.  It's so easy to join the letters and make it look hand written.  A little gold flourish cut from Verve's Flourished Tag Die Set was the perfect embellishment.
