This is my place to share my creative bits and pieces. My art has no rules, no limits and absolutely no order. My projects change with my moods but for the last few years, my main focus has been paper art. Cards, collage, mixed media and as many techniques as I can get to. My inspiration comes from everywhere.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

This beautiful angel figurine inspired the colours for this weeks challenge. Gorgeous!
I wanted a little break from Christmas cards and created the card you see above. The card uses the stocking punch to make baby booties. I love that.
It was wonderful to take some time in the work room and make this card too.
I hope you get some creative time in today.
Maybe even take on the Colour Q challenge- you won't be sorry you did.

Have an amazing day!

Please note that the Monday Muse Technique Tag session has been cancelled. Look for it again in January.

Before I finished this card, I showed it to my husband. I had been struggling with it, had no desire to abandon it and he knew it. He took a look and told me it needed a star. So, I went back to the table, put a rhinestone on the tree top and showed him again. "Not what I meant" he said. "It needs a star that radiates out." Eep! I don't think I have that. However, Come to Bethlehem stamp set has a star. Done!
This from the guy who claims to NOT be creative-seriously.

Thanks for looking!

Pure white on white would be without any coloured card stock so this is close.
Again, certain times  of day or weather cause blue tinting on my photos, especially white content. I hope you can see it white, not blue.

Plenty of white outside today...it's really here.
Have a wonderful day- I hope you get creative and let some art out!
 It's good for you.

Here's a look at one of the cards I've prepared for a card camp this weekend.
Quite traditional colours and theme.
More to share soon.

Have a super day!

Here's a card I missed showing you last year. I found it in my blog photo file, then went through ALL the blog Christmas cards to make sure I had missed it. Did you know there are 38 Christmas cards on my blog?
It's true.

So, here's one more. I hope to get some tags done soon, so I can share them with you. 
It's snowing tonight- a little winter-y inspiration.

Have a good night and a wonderful tomorrow.

Wonderful colour choices again at Colour Q- don't know how they do it, but I love it!
 Here's my card.
It uses Faux Designer Paper Technique, a little punching and some ribbon.
These great weekly challenges get me going and I know I'll have at least one card to show you each week  :) That is Plan A anyway.

Haven't joined in the challenge yet? Did you know the website is packed with samples for all the colour challenges? With 109 challenges now, there must be a few that would appeal to you. Go here and see for yourself. Tons of inspiration!

Have an awesome weekend!

I only had one sheet of this designer paper but it became the perfect piece to wrap this gift and use on the card. I also put some on the envelope but I didn't show it in the photo.
The thing about using designer paper is you get a nice card, quickly.
I'm pleased with how the card and gift turned out.

The paper I used is from Hot Off the Press and if you've used their paper you know that it is just that- paper, not cardstock. The added bonus is not adding too much bulk or weight to the projects.

Just a quick and easy one for you today.
Hope you have a great day, whatever it is you're doing!
Thanks for stopping by.
