This looks much more sparkly in real life, but this is also all Tim Holtz's grungeboard. I painted in the cupid with jasper red H2O, then sponged gold metallic paint around the edges. The love letters were embossed with disco black embossing powder. I think I'll be leaving these cards at the Carousel for Dejah for awhile. Thanks for looking!

This card is for my daughter's birthday on Tuesday! I love cupcakes right now, so this is one of my favorite stamps by Impression Obsession. I painted it in with twinkling H2O's after embossing in disco black by Stampendous. SU! paper, the stamp, brown flower and H2O's can be found at Carousel Rubber Stamps.
I've had this butterfly by Artful Stamper for a couple of years now, and still love it. I embossed this with sparkly gold ep, and painted in with twinkling h2o in hot cinnamon. I'm actually sending this to a friend with a little gift as a Valentine card.

On our way to the beach in Aruba, we walked through a hotel lobby and they just happened to be having a bird interaction time. They all got to have their photos taken with the parrots and we so happy about that. I think the birds were quite heavy, but Claire didn't mind having both on her arms!

My first mini album. This one is by sei with sei papers. Dejah from the Carousel wanted me to make a couple of samples using these albums for her store. It was easy to do, I put Christmas pictures on the inside and a little journaling, added rub ons and flowers to the front. Overall, I'm happy with the outcome, I hope she is too!

Here is a layout I did as guest designer for Scraptivity! They have an awesome online store, monthly kits and challenges. The paper is bobunny and the flowers, brads, and buttons are from the Making Memories mocha paperie collection. My daughter is almost 7 now, but I've always loved this picture, taken by Slice of Life photography here in Nova Scotia.
I've decided to try out this blogging world, and share some of the creative work I do. Hope you enjoy it!
Here is a birthday card I just finished for my sister. I used Stampin Up! Doodle this flowers, embossed in disco black, then painted with hot cinnamon and pewter H2O's. Red is her favorite color-hope she likes it!
