magical birthday

I'd like to share with you a card I made last night.

I love this little dragon from My Favorite Things.
I used the colors from this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge
of light purple, dark purple, beige and brown.
Definitely not my go to colors!

Hope you have a great day.

'till next time

sweet birthday


It's been raining for the last few days....
but the sun is just now peeking out!  YEA!

Here's the card I made to play along with this weeks challenge 
 a closer look:
 I used a digi stamp from  From The Heart Stamps for the sentiment
and the stamp is from the Ice Cream Dream set by Simon Says Stamp.
Colored with copics and embellished with a few tiny sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Using die cuts

It's sunny out and 73 Ohio!!!!
Lovin' it!

Today I'd like to share with you a card I made to play along with 
this weeks challenge over at CAS on Friday.
The challenge is to use die cuts.
Here's what I used:
MFT Die-namics Blueprints #13
Lawn Fawn -Lawn Cuts-Picket fence border 
Simon Says Stamp - stitched circles
Simon Says Stamp - hello
Paper Smooches- spring fling stamp set
foam tape 
Copic markers

I also did another card using die cuts:

This card was made by following step by step instructions from Jennifer McGuire.
You can check out her post HERE!
 Her post is 2 years old, but I just got around to doing it!! lol
I like the results, I'll have to do more glittered die-cuts!
Thanks for stopping by.
'till next time,

Hi !
Time for a new code word from Addicted To Clean and Simple.
I have the honor of being the hostess this time and I chose the word - CAT.
Here's my card:

I had my daughter cut me a cat head stencil from some 
sticky back foil:
She loves her Silhouette!
Next I stuck it to some watercolor paper...
since it was foil I figured the water wouldn't
 hurt it and being stuck down the water wouldn't leak underneath it.
( I did think ahead and made sure I could remove it from the watercolor paper!) lol

Then I did a plain water wash on the cat head and then dropped some color
 and watched it cool! look what happened:
I had nothing to do with that!

Looks like a cat face to me... so, I was smart enough
to let well enough alone!

I hope this inspires you to play along with this challenge and maybe 
even get out the watercolors!
'till next time,

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to CAS 
and our hostess Susan has chosen the word "TEAL"
Here's my take on it:
He's such a cute bear!
He's from My Favorite Things and the sentiment
is from The Cat's Pajamas.

Hope you can play along with us during this challenge.
