hello friends, I have used some old SU felt flowers...actually surprised I still have them...lol. They are super duper cute, so I hung on to them....I adore the sweet color combo from the color throwdown, so I played along with them. The sketch I kept at an A2 size, I usually do not make square cards. I used some time holtz distress ink, embossing paste, bakers twine and the sweet flowers. I used a plain jane from Verve stamps for the birthday sentiment. Add a little glimmer to your life....sparkle & shine, kindness!

good morning friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was super fast, had to work Saturday and that always makes for a fast weekend. I have used tim holtz distress inks to hand paint my flowers using a paint brush....YES, you read it correct, that was my first attempt to free style painting flowers...not perfect but so, so. You should give it a try, it was fun and the choice of flowers are endless...go for it! I used the Verve sentiment from the set be blessed. I was inspired by the gorgeous flower image at inspired by over on Lesley's blog..check it out. Be sure to check out the rest of the mojo makers blogs, the team is so inspiring!

hi friends, it is time for the feature day at your next stamp, I have used the sweet stamp set called coffee is boss. Once I had cut the scalloped square shape, I thought of a postage stamp, it would be cool to create a postage stamp using the coffee set. The USPS could use some help with creating pretty stamps and a coffee series of stamps would be awesome; don't you think? I made my card more on the vintage side after the postage stamp idea came up, I added a gold glittery heart and some gold striped washi tape. Be sure to check out how the team answered the feature day challenge. Add a little glimmer to your life...sparkle & shine, kindness!
