Another look at How Sweet!

Hi Creative Friends,

I think the little birdies with a flower in this stamp set are so sweet I had to create another version. This one has a striking black background, then was painted with Coliro Finetec metallic paint.

Up, Up, and Away

Hi Creative Friends,

I am sharing a few brand new stamp and die sets from Concord & 9th and I am just loving them! The first is the Downtown Stacks. I have a special fondness for buildings and houses so this caught my eye immediately. The second set was a bit of a surprise to me. I usually don’t choose hot air balloons but these Up & Away sets really changed my mind. I adore both of these new sets! You can create so much awesome things with them!

Mosaic Happy Birthday

Hi Creative Friends,

A week or so ago I shared a ‘love you’ card with a colorful mosaic background. Since I had cut out the mosaic pattern from each of the colors used, I had oodles of pieces leftover! So, in an effort to be tidy and also use some of these pieces, I made another mosaic background. This time, it is a colorful and cheerful birthday card.
