Never Never Land

Hello Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in today. Today I want to share a card with you that I made for Verses Rubber Stamps.  I played with watercolors on a sheet of watercolor paper and then cut it into strips. Those strips of watercolor paper were placed to make the background design. 

I love the yellows and the pinks and peaches that are on the strips, they look great together.
I used two markers to make the ribbon the color I needed to match my card.

The sentiment I used is from Verses Rubber Stamps and I just love the sentiment selection they have.
They have a whole host of categories with so many Verses to choose from. 
Click here to go to the shopping area of their site. I am sure you will find just the right sentiment you need for your project.

The Gift of You

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for stopping in today. Do you believe it!!! July 1 is here and the year is half over and now we are on our way to a lot of holidays before the end of the year. Speaking of holidays,  I have already bought a Christmas gift. (OK no groaning, please)

Since its the first of the month, it's time for the Craft-Dee BowZ  July challenge. As always, the theme is always Anything Goes with a Handmade Bow. I would love to see your submission over at Craft-Dee BowZ

Here is my card that I made for the CDB inspiration 

The background paper I used is from one of my Gelli Plate sessions. I've saved lots of papers from playing with my Gelli Plate and put then in my stash, so here is a great use for one of them.

The flowers are all my handmade designs.

Here is a close-up of my triple loop bow.
That ribbon is a great match for that background paper I made.

I decided on inserting the sentiment on the inside of the card.

This card is for a dear friend whose birthday has just passed.

Leave Room in your Garden

Hi there.
Hope you had a great week and now the weekend has started.Time for fun and time to get in your studio, to start being creative.

The other day, I started to work with a sentiment from Verses Rubber Stamps. As I read the sentiment,  I thought of a stamp set I had, that contained a fairy and some toad stools. It is a perfect match for the sentiment.

I know I mentioned that the sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps, but, have you checked out their online catalogue? They have so many stamps to choose from and they are all categorized, so it is easy to find what you are looking for.
