or sets of giftcards or calling cards with matching envelopes. These were so fast I will never worry about not having tome to make a little card to go with a present or some flowers. Also I just LOVE that I got to use these sweet Prima papers that have been sitting on my shelf since I bought them. They are ADORABLE but I've never known what to do with them - till now. Don't you think this is the most adorable little card set? And so simple and super fast to make! I'm in LOVE with these new WMS dies!!!

Didn't have much time for painting this week-end so what I'm sharing today is more of a sketch than a painting. I worked from a reference photo (posting it from my other computer later this evening) and tried to get the colors right at least.
It is Sunday again, and I'm here to tell you about the new challenge at SPARKS (Paper Smooches). This time it's a designer drafts challenge and here's my sample;
For my card I used stamps from these wonderful Paper Smooches stamp sets; Chubby Chums, We totally click and Notebook basic die.
Be sure to check out what my super talented teamies have created for this challenge;
Today I've made a card for Create's fun "Shaped cards" challenge!
I used a lot of my favorite goodies; Basic Grey patterned paper, Lawn Fawn paper, stamps and dies, spellbinder dies and my Derwent's watercolor pencils.
Today I'm here to share a sympathy card I'm showing off at Waltzing Mouse Stamp's inspiration blog; TEAM TALK. These cards are often hard to make but I Think the simpler you make them the better. Here's a very CAS sample.
I used cream cardstock and stamped the twig from the wonderful set; Two Step floral sprig in Hero Arts Field Green ink. The sentiment is from a favorite sentiment set of mine; Big Day Today. And then simply stitched around the edges Before adhering it to my cardbase with foam adhesive.
This year, for practice, I will allow myself to copy other artists' painting. It's always been a no-no to me to copy, but think it is a great way to try to pick up on the techniques they are using - and promise I won't do it after this year is over. This painting was inspired by one of James Mann's beautiful paintings.
Hope you are doing well! I myself am so extremely proud to be Swedish these Olympic days (-:!
