The word is out. I’m so sad about losing some of the colours, especially since my main colours for my daughter’s wedding thank you notes are amongst them. Hopefully they don’t run out before I put my order in.
I am happy to see Island Indigo back. What peaks your interest?

Happy New Year dear blogging friends. It’s been a while since I blogged. It is my New Years resolution to get back into card-making and blogging.
My second New Years resolution is to lose 30 pounds. I’ve lost 41 pounds since August so I think 30 more is doable. What is your New Years Resolution?

Hello friends. Today I have a technique from the Technique Junkie Newsletter called Jenny’s coat. Isn’t it pretty. My paper is from Stampin’ Up! in the colours of Real Red and Kiwi Kiss. Designer paper is from K&Co.
Using the same colour combination as above, I added my handmade polymer clay buttons. I love the distressed look of my buttons, don’t you? I’ll let you in a little secret. My distressed buttons were created by
accidentally burning them in the oven.
Hello friends. Today I have a fun technique for you, it is coloured paper piecing. You will notice this cute owl is wearing a dress, but did you notice I enhanced things by blending Prismacolor pencil crayons on the waste and under the collar.
Stamp with large open area
Prismacolor pencil crayons
odorless mineral spirits
Stamp out your image twice–once on designer paper and once on white cardstock
Cut out stamped area (I just cut the dress out)
Colour areas that you want to darken, such as above and below the belt, and under the collar.
With a blending stump and odorless mineral spirits, blend your Prismacolor pencil crayons.

Designer Paper: BasicGrey
Hello friends. Are you up for a challenge? I needed inspiration and turned to The Altered Alice because Creative Inspirations paint is sponsoring Alice’s challenge. I’ve been wanting to take part of The Altered Alice challenges and never got around to it. I used Garnet Creative Inspiration’s paint.
I’m sorry but I don’t know who made my alice images. They came as unmounted rubber.
I haven’t been posting regularly. Thank you for being patient with me.
Look what I’m working on. Can’t wait to use them on my cards.
