Sat. Mar. 30, 2019 It's Happy Mail

  Here is a simple card I made yesterday that can be used for many occasions, and could be either a masculine or feminine card, right?  I think this would be perfect to send with all your latest news, perhaps to a relative that lives a distance away!

I used the Happy Mail stamp set from Gina K. Designs.

Fri. 3.29.2019 Alcohol Ink Background

After I watched Jennifer McGuire's post today I wanted to try using my alcohol inks, that haven't been used in years.   I decided to play in my craft room to see what I would come up with.

Here is that card. 
This was definitely a lot of fun and I really liked the way it turned out.  What do you think?  Please let me know.

Sunday March 24, 2019 Love how this turned out

I used the cut out from the Spellbinder Scallop oval I used yesterday to frame the sentiment form Gina K.'s set called Thankful and Blessed. I sponged the frame with some blue ink and added a few strips of Navy cs to add a little more dimension, after I popped the whole thing up a bit.  

I appreciate any comment you might leave me!

Sat. 3.23.2019 Time to Play Yesterday so posting now

Since I had time to play in my craft room yesterday,  I came up with this card. I added an oval of white inside the card  so it would make it easier to write a little note on the purple card stock and sign it.

 I used this Spellbinder Elegant Oval die I bought from Gina K. Designs, for the card front and a Stacking Nesting Spellbinder die that I have had for a long time. The little bows are die cut from a GKD Party die set that has been around for a long time as well.

Wed. 3.6 2019 MOD Squad Green

The Challenge at MOD Squad was to use all green.  I am guessing this has something to do with St. Patrick's Day!  Here is the card I created.

The sentiment is a stamped image from Melanie Muenchinger's Twine Time. All the Shamrocks were die cut from a beautiful green patterned paper.   Green gems added the sparkle and the twine put there to balance things out!

Thank you for visiting to see my creations.

Tues. 3.5.2019 CAS523 Three in a Row and Less is More #390

I made this card for CAS523  - Three in a Row Challenge at SplitCoast Stampers.  I think this will work as a masculine card if need to, but will work for lots of occasions.

I used a piece of CS that I ran through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to simulate bubbles from the fish!
This also works for the horoscope for Less is More #390. This is Pisces!

Thank you for taking a look at my card today.
