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.

Hi there!
This card is a real mixed bag-dry embossing, stenciling, die cutting, and stamping. The congratulations stamp is one of five in this set from Quietfire Design.
The nine squares were stenciled, then attached to the dry embossed panel with foam tape. The panel was adhered to the card base and the stamped piece was attached with foam tape.
After cutting out the flowers and foliage, it was cut into sections and glued over the squares.
I'm using this card for these challenges:

Hi! Hope you had a fabulous weekend!
DH and I put together a goodie package for each of our sons, to go in the mail tomorrow. We like to decorate the boxes a bit, give the posties a little something to enjoy, or at least get a small chuckle from. DH said we should cover it with bunny stickers. Great idea! I have NO bunny stickers. I didn't have any kind of stickers that would work for this. I discovered that I am not a sticker-using girl.
I have very few.
To the rescue~~ Quietfire Design silhouette e-cut files! A bunny and a phrase~ Perfect!
Thank you QFD!
So, there you have it. Just sharing a very small slice of life here.
Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Hi there! Don't you just love the bright, cheery colour here? Me too.
This card has scattered embossing on the white base layer using an Anna Griffin folder. The edges are distressed, and it's attached to a dark brown card base.
The colourful panel, and white cardstock has been die cut, then the white cuts embedded in the coloured piece. This was matted with dark brown cardstock.
Burlap paper-absolutely love this stuff- was stenciled, using the opposite piece from the white die cut, as the stencil, and dark brown acrylic paint.
The fabulous butterflies are from a new e-cut file from Quietfire Design. The sentiment stamp is Quietfire Design as well.
All the pieces were layered and attached, ribbon added, pearls added, and DONE!
I am sharing this card on Splitcoast Stampers for the embedded flower challenge.
