CHallenge time over at ABNH!


It's time for a new challenge over at ABNH and I thought I'd share what I made!

SO the challenge is to embellish an envelope. You can make a card to match if you want.

NOWWW....i ran into some trouble with this one lol.

I ordered the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch board several months ago, but due to the late delivery of a couple of other items to my friend who's going to send it all on to me, it's still not in my hot little hands.

So I've had to use my boring ugly normal envelopes instead of a pretty hand-made matching-paper envelope.

To make up for this, I made TWO cards and TWO envelopes :)

what do you think?!

Sorry for the weird lighting in the photos, one of my photo-tent lamps busted the other day and I haven't had a chance to get a new bulb.


Hope you'll pop over to ABNH and check out what the rest of the DT made, they're all fantabulous, and we really hope you'll join us!!

See you soon!

Hero Arts LURVES Lawn Fawn!


It's a fun, exciting week over at A Blog named Hero, we've teamed up with Lawn Fawn to show you how well these two fabulous companies work together!

I'm up on the blog on Monday (yesterday), but I thought I'd show you my card here :)

For the background I used a Studio Calico mask and some texture paste, the diecut 'thanks' is from Lawn Fawn's Quinns' ABC's the words 'time for' are an old Hero Arts stamp set, as are the gorgeous leaves.
 To colour the leaves I stamped with my distress markers after colouring in the stamp and spritzing with water. I love love love liggedy-love this effect. I'll be doing it a whole lot more.

The patterned papers I used are all from the Lawn Fawn Into the Woods collection. Crazy-love!!!!!!!! The sequins are LF too :)

See how fun it is when people place nicely together?! (or companies :))

OK! Be sure to head over to ABNH, there are some AH-MAZING cards.
