Thanksgiving Cards of all styles
I took a crack at making some cards for the upcoming eat-too-much holiday. I'm trying to get back in to some kind of schedule where I actually #sharehandmadekindness like I used to [note this is my 2nd blog of 2015. Yikes.] It's been stressful this year, so...

It's been a long, long time since I have devoted some serious amount of time to paper crafting. This isn't to say I haven't done any, but that I've not given it a central focus for months on end. I decided to get back on the "holiday schedule" with cards fo...

Hot Outside, Cards Inside
Yesterday, it was 104. Here's to happier things, all done indoors where it's safe and cool! For the Lawnscaping color challenge I did a blended background with distress inks over a mask I made by chaining the wave stamp from Critters in the Sea. It's hard t...

Boy Birthdays Everywhere
I made some cards for my friends who are twins on their birthday. We are all big fans of sushi and video games, so I thought these were appropriate. I also made a mini-album for another nerdy friend's baby boy birthday shower.
