You are Fabulous...4 Krafty Chicks Challenge #446~Shades of Green, Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #332~Make Your Mark, Always Fun Challenges #101~Shades of Green


No St. Patrick's Day card, but one that is filled with a variety of copic-coloured greens (and an 'oops'...the top image should be flipped over to 'properly' frame the sentiment. Oh well...I'll blame it on leprechauns playing games *grin*).

Uniko Studio DT Showcase...So Kind of You


Once again, a Uniko Studio DT showcase, where I bring out a few of my Uniko Studio products to give them some extra love! This time, my card was inspired by ultra-talented Kay Miller, with here oh so pretty card here.  Given her's was for a 'case' challenge, I've decided to do precisely that, using some oldies mixed with newbies stamps and dies!

My 'imitation is the greatest form of flattery' creation uses: Flower Power 1, Flower Power 3, Flower Power 8 (sentiment) and Passiflora stamps and dies.

*Casing*...I LOVE it...especially as doing so inspires me to look at my collection with fresh eyes!

Just Us Girls Challenge #479~Colour Week...Thanks


Welcome to Just Us Girls Challenge #479~Colour Week, where our lovely Nancy has selected yellow, purple and teal as this week's inspiration palette. Spring, Easter, or....? Whatever you choose!

Once again, we're thrilled to be joined by your talented guest designer, Greta Hess; please visit her, as well as my teammates - SueAngieVickiInaBobbyNancyLisa and Maria - who would love to know you dropped by.

Confession: I'm obsessing over Concord and 9th's Turnabout sets. I've collected a few - some of which have yet to be inked (Yikes!) - but with the new alignment sheets and jigs...ohmystars! Game changing! I think said collection will be growing!

For this go-round, bringing out the Many Thanks for a turn-about once...

and twice.  Nothing even remotely novel with this one, as the design is a case from the C&9 site...which is why I bought this stamp/die in the first place. me copy cat or rather, flattering with imitation *grin*)

Over to you...

Looking forward seeing what you create with YELLOW, PURPLE & TEAL!

Thank you for dropping by!
