I just love this little rat by Colorado Craft Company. My friend sent me some flowers a few months back after my nose surgery and I made her a thank you card. Nice and easy!!

I made another night scene using this birch tree die cut from Gina Marie Designs and my Spellbinders Tree Picking Die cut. I sprayed the black cardstock underneath with Avery Elle white ink spray and what I love about this spray is it dries almost instantly after being sprayed. No waiting for it to dry!! The banner is by Mama Elephant.

Here's another card using this great moose set by My Favorite Things. When I first saw this technique done by Sandy Allnock, I knew I had to try it. I need my stripes to be different sizes like hers but I was afraid to start over, for fear it would be worse than this. I will definitely be trying this again. You can see her cards here.

I made a card just like this last month and I liked it so much I decided to duplicate it and add "70" to one of the balloons for my friend who turns 70 next month.

I've been reaching for this stamp set more and more. I think it's so fun to color. Made a card for my aunt whose husband is battling cancer and not doing too good right now. The purple is too purple here but I swear it looks more like Rich Razzleberry IRL.

Every Wednesday, Splitcoast Stampers has something called Watercolor Wednesday. Each week we learn to watercolor something from scratch. This week it was this sailboat. I wasn't sure about it at first but after 3 attempts, this was my best shot at it. You can see the video here. I'm sending this to a friend who is having surgery next month.
