Hi there friends-
It's raining again today here in Norther CA and my tennis match was canceled, so next best thing to do is create a card. I haven't had time yet to play along with Reverse Confetti's Monthly Sketch Challenge, so today is the perfect day for that!


I wanted to make a co-worker a card to give to her, as she has been working so hard to train some new mentors in our program, and it was a very tough week of training involved. She left work on Friday exhausted, so I wanted to cheer her up tomorrow, with a sweet card to lift her spirits. Even though it was a tough week, she pulled it off and our new mentors are now trained and ready to go out into the field because of her hard work! My turn next month to train some new folks, sure hope I'm able to pull it off as well as she did!

For my card, I stenciled and used a color mix of yellow, green and turquoise to fill in the stenciling. My patterned paper is from "My Mind's Eye-Collectable." I used Reverse Confetti's stamp set, "Garden Bunch," along with the "Leafy" Confetti Cuts. For the sentiment, I used Reverse Confetti, "Circle Sentiments." I added some fun little sequins to give it a little extra sparkle!

It was a simple, yet fun card design and I hope my co-worker enjoys it!

Have a great week-

Hello All

This week over at PTI, Ashley Cannon Newell has a "Color Isolation" challenge for MIM. You can watch her video of this technique and get challenge information here.

For my take on this challenge, I used the stamp set, "What the Doodle: Feather" set. This is such a fun little set to color and/or stamp with ink. I chose to color my feather with my Copic markers, using the color family pinks. The exact pen colors I used were, RV23, RV25, RV29. I stamped the background feathers in "Soft Stone."

 I then used Lovely Lady cardstock to mount my card base, popped the feather up to give it some dimension, stamped the sentiment from the stamp set, "Hello," and tied a piece of twine to the end of the feather. I love how it turned out, and it was sooooo simple!

Have a great week-
