I found this little saying among my TE stamps. The wine helped determine my color scheme. I love MFT's watercolor backgrounds. So much better than I do on my own. I have several friends in mind for this card. Think it will be a fun birthday one!

After seeing Stephanie's video on what a difference a frame can make on a card, I gave it a try. I love the way this turned out.

It is wonderful when you find a beautiful paper pack and you know that it all goes together. All I had to do was choose my favorites and this beautiful card was born. I love the mix of patterns yet the simplicity of the design.

Birthday Slider card

I love this type of card. I attended 2 stamp conventions and found some interesting dies. I love this slider one and also the cupcake. I was looking for something small to fit in the slider space and to my delight, MFT's Pure Innocence birthday girl had a sentiment that said, "Happy Cupcake Day". How perfect is that?!


When I first got my Misti, I practiced stamping backgrounds. I found this one in my stash and just knew it would be perfect for the large space on this card. It is the mini hexies and I think it adds a little sophistication to the look. My pop of color comes from the Painted Prints Smitten paper pack. The flowers are from the new kit along with greenery from various sets. When I am cutting greenery, I usually cut all that I can from a piece of paper and store them in a container until I need them.


"Tall and skinny" used to really give me problems because they seem so small. I have grown to love, them because they really challenge me. I have learned to use embellishments and paper more scaled to size and it really helps.
