Hi there, happy mid-week?  Is it just me or does it feel like it should be Friday already?
Today I was inspired to paint with Distress Oxide inks after I saw Kathy Racoosin’s Instagram post.  I’ve been wanting to play with this beautiful floral stamp again so it’s been a while since I’ve used Oxides this way so I thuought it was a perfect opportunity to do so.

Joy To You And Yours

Hi there, and happy weekend. 💛

I just want to say that I’m so grateful to be safe and sound and able to spend my free time making cards. It’s a frivolous luxury that I’m fortunate to enjoy.  This week there has been so much hurt and destruction in the world, and here in California, that my heart aches.  I hope that you and yours are safe.

Today I’m sharing another card using some beautiful stamps from Picket Fence Studios.  When I first saw this beautiful Circles of Faith stamp, I immediately thought of rippling water, and the idea of the endless ripples caused by a single drop of water let me to pair it with this sentiment, from the Forever and Ever stamp set.

Hi there, I hope you’ve had a great week!

I’ve been noticing the onset of fall and winter in the way I reach for warmer clothes in the morning and the way it gets dark so much earlier so today I felt like play with some bright and warm colors.  I used one of my favorite techniques for creating an organic background, watercolor block stamping.

Happy Happy Birthday

Hi there!  I’m super behind on posts since I was out of town over the weekend and didn’t have any downtime to like I thought I would.  In 60 hours I flew roundtrip to Florida squeezed in breakfasts and dinners with crafty friends and went to two days of The Coloring Challenge Roadtrip hosted by Kathy Racoosin at My Favorite Things.  It was an amazing weekend!

Since I’m still sleep deprived, I made a very quick and easy card today with Distress Ink blending which I always find very soothing. Continue reading “Happy Happy Birthday”
