I love hexagons.
Love em.
Having said that,
I cannot even tell you how long it took
to create this.
Just imagine!
The papers started out by
Crafty Button Designs.
But they changed A LOT
as it progressed.

Thanks for coming by!


Pearl had to dress for school and she knew her mother
would have to approve her choice of outfits before she got
out the door.

But Pearl's mother had cataracts and so
didn't notice her footwear.
Lucky thing,
because the seamstresses were still busy
as Pearl was waiting to gather her books.

Banish The Holiday Blues

The Belles have invited us to create a Christmas card
which does not have the colour blue on it anywhere.
Easy enough.
Yes, it's kind of juvenile, but
I'm a juvenile kind of girl.

(You knew that already.)

(cus they rock, you know)

May Garden

of dreams at
this month!
Well, granted, the month is almost over, but
that won't keep me from showing you my projects for May!

If you have been coming to visit me for a while now, you know that 
I have a free stamp for this month for you.  Here it is;
and here is something I made with it to
help get your creative juices flowing...

I placed the stamp over a background from the Flower Power PaperPak,
Then between those two layers, I placed another paper from the same PaperPak.
I erased everything on that paper that wasn't her nightgown;
I did the same thing with another paper for the baby's dress.
Using PSE13, I placed a transparent layer behind the stamp.
On that layer I just painted the colours I wanted, using a simple digital brush.
I placed the whole concoction over top of the same paper I used for the baby's dress.
I finished it with some roses and a border that I had in my
vast digital stash and a piece of wordart from 
the Gecko Galz All You Need Digital Stamp Set

Reminder:  If you haven't already, you still have time
to link up for the May Garden of Dreams Customer Challenge.

This is my project, using all Gecko Galz elements:
You can find all the deets here: Gecko Galz

Everything I used for all of my projects this month can be found

I hope you have enjoyed your visit today, 
I always like when you stop by and say HI!

Celebrate Your Style!

I am so glad I found this challenge blog, because,
although it may make me sound like a cranky
old woman, I really DO NOT LIKE
those cutesy cards/images that are so popular.
So I simply MUST support these folks!

They had asked us to create something that
celebrates our style.
And my style is undoubtedly bright and colourful!
How's that for bright and colourful? lol

Why don't you wander over there and celebrate your own style?

And thanks for stopping by!

Our World Tuesday

Cherry Blossom season lasts about 2 seconds here.
We have gone from 27 degrees (celsius) to 8 degrees in a day.
BUT it has not snowed.
So life is good.

Thanks for coming by!

Shake, Rattle and Roll

I didn't think I could make a shaker card.
And I'm sure there is an easier way.
But, I did it.

(Note to self: Must learn how to do this)

Spots, Splashes and Dots

I have just the coolest honour EVAH today
to share with you.
I am lucky enough to be the guest designer at

Isn't that awesome?!
(I am just tickled pink)
and our theme this week is
you guessed it  Spots, Splashes and Dots
all of which I happen to love using in my art! 
I made a banner and it is REALLY HARD
getting a decent picture of the whole thing.
I hung it on my fireplace.
(Hoping that will appease the snow gods to not give us that one
last nasty blast before summer like they usually do.)

OK, crummy photo, is this better?

Aw heck, here are the individual pennants:

I really hope you join us at
cus they really go have fun challenges

And I will let you know if the snow gods are appeased.

And thank Try It On Tuesday, for putting up with me!
