Non-Traditional Chriatmas images

I joined in a Holiday Tag Blog Hop with Michael Strong stamps, but did not have any of his seasonal images. So, I got out my Rosso cardstock and gold embossed the Kimono image on it.


I used Alcohol inks on white glossy cardstock for the background in a Polished Stone- dabbing […]

Are you counting down the days yet???


I do not have to cook or clean for Thanksgiving, so I am focusing on my Christmas cards….only 41 days left until Christmas. ……….Yikes!!!

I used a digital image- from the progressive challenge at The Outlawz. I used Neenah white cardstock and colored the image with Copic markers and highlights with a […]

Thinking Pink

I have been inspired to make cards for Breast Cancer Awareness this month. McMahon Five Designs new BCA freebie is released today, so I used it for my card.

Hi!  Shelly here with a card I made for the World Card Making Blog Hop sponsored by Operation Write Home this weekend.  The cards for the soldiers need to be Glitter free and flat so the troops do not have to fill out customs forms.  How to make the card- not too flat?  Add […]

I made some cards for a friend who invited us to stay at her home in Keystone when she heard we were traveling to Colorado to visit our son earlier this month.  I took a picture of the Aspen tree right next to her garage, and picked a few leaves off of the tree […]

It’s a Sparkling Day!

Happy July 2nd!  We are spending the weekend in Keystone Colorado with our son Chris- he is doing an Internship out here. He will be in the parade Monday- and that got me in a celebrating mood….this image reminded me of the ‘old days when we would dress the kids up in R/W/B and […]

Moonlight Swim

Hi- it’s warming up here in the Midwest- and humid too.  That’s when we think about diving into some nice cool water to cool off……..

I love the Vintage Silver Lustre cardstock for adding a beautiful shimmer to cards, and it works fabulously with Copic markers as well.  I used

very pale Copics […]
