Pastels-- I'm here if you need me

I haven't played along with many challenges lately. When I saw the Simon Says Monday challenge for pastels, I knew it was for me!

I embossed some white poppies and watercoloured them in pastels. Love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Crazy Card Party--Stripes!

This week at Crazy Card Party Patricia is asking to see STRIPES! I was excited to do this one. 

I die cut a banner out of some silver striped Stampin' Up vellum. My fellow Party-Er Regs made this silver paste that I used on the hearts. I am just loving the look of silver and Aqua Mist these days. And I had seam binding that matched perfectly.

I can't wait to see all the stripes used by the other Party-Ers this week!

Crazy Card Party-- Something Warm!

This week at Crazy Card Party, Av is challenging us to create something warm...think coffee, tea, sunshine etc. I have been on a tea kick lately but I put a bit of a twist on the challenge...

I put some water colour flowers in a tea cup! And nothing says warmth like a "hugs" sentiment. 

And I needed to keep practicing those water colour flowers so I made this little tag too.

I can't wait to see what kind of "warmth" the other Party-Ers are cooking up this week.

Crazy Card Party-- Favourite Die

This week at Crazy Card Party, it is my turn to issue the challenge. I was inspired by Patricia's recent "favourite stamp" challenge to change it into "favourite die." You know, that go-to die that you love using? For me it is my PTI Fabulous Frames polaroid frame die. I reach for it all the time and it cuts so nicely.

Be sure to check out what favourite dies the other Party-Ers are featuring this week. I bet it will mean I will need to add them to my collection too!

Crazy Card Party-- St. Patrick's Day

This week at Crazy Card Party, Kathryn is asking us to get our Irish on with something green in honour of St. Patrick's Day coming up.

Ironically, my Irish friend has embarked on a big adventure in the next chapter of her life, so I made her this good luck card! Seems appropriate.

I can't wait to check out the green creations by the other Party-Ers this week.

Good luck Mary!
