So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Thinking of You STVMONTAMI2

This is for the Mix It Up Monday Challenge at Stamp TV....STVMONTAMI2....The challenge was to look at this image for inspiration and create a card. (Here is the website)

 I looked at the wonderful vibrant colors and that was what I went with ... I used cranberry tart GKD cs as my base and the Creative Imaginations dp was perfect with its cranberry, goldish yellow, aqua, peacock blue colors to name a few. I also used the GKD Birds and Vases stamps by Melanie Muenchinger and created my image by stamping the flower stems, then adding the flowers and buds and putting it in the stamped vase. I colored with Copics, added some Ranger Crackle on the vase and some icicle Stickles on the flowers. The background I sponged with Brilliance sunflower yellow, Colorbox cranberry and Versa Magic Aquatic Splash. I used Labels 17 to cut out the image and cranberry tart background...adding some ribbon, pearls, gems, and bow. I also used Liquid Pearls peacock, buttercup and ruby red.

The inside I used the Birds and Vases stamp  with Potter's Clay Memento ink and cut out with Labels 11 and added some pearls.


  1. I love it, so full of color!!!
