For this challenge, I made a set of 5 ATC's using a set of digital images from Vera Lane Studios on Etsy. Some quirky cats!!! Here are some closeups....






I had a blast making these little guys! I do hope you will join us for our very first challenge of the New Year! And do check out what the amazing Sistah's have come up with for this challenge!

Tag Tuesday - Numbers

 Hi there all! Here's a little tag I made for a challenge over at Tag Tuesday 

The theme is NUMBERS! 

I had fun playing with my tag today, and have decided to do some snarky ones this year... because ... well.. I love snark! All my friends will get them on their birthday presents! LOL!


I first used a brayer to apply some turquoise, bubblegum pink and white over the background. I then embossed a number stamp I have had for ages. I used a Tim Holtz stencil and added some numbers to the left using some turquoise paint. I added some splatters in this color as well as white! Then I added the border scallop (which I had done ages ago using some left over paper!), added my little snarky gal and a sentiment... of sorts! 

Hope you are having a fabulous start to our New Year! 

Happy Creating!

Try it on Tuesday - Positive or Uplifting Quote

 Good Morning all, and Happy New Year's to you and yours! 

Today at Try it on Tuesday, we have a brand new challenge for you to start 2021... 

Use a positive or uplifting quote on your project


Of course, I had to use both "uplifting" and a positive quote! LOL!
I made the background using a ton of different blues and splashes of pinks and some stencil; added my little ladies, some washi tape and of course... my positive sentiment!! Life is definitely too short to get your knickers in a knot!! LOL!!


I do hope you will join us with this challenge, and do check out what the amazing design team has come up with for this first challenge of 2021!

Try it on Tuesday - Christmas Sparkle

 Good Morning all! Today at  Try it on Tuesday  we have our very last challenge up for the year...

"Christmas Sparkle"

For today, I made 3 tags... one for each of my boys and one for my son's girlfriend! The boys always look forward to my tags on their presents so this year is no exception.


I used a white tag, and watercolor to add some greens for the background. I then used a snowflake stamp and some dots of versamark and heat set these using copper embossing powder. I added my little people, some washi tape and a sentiment. Now.. just have to add them to their presents!


And here is a closeup of the sparkle! 


Have super fun Holiday Season!!
