WOW! I never should have teased you all about my big announcement! I got lots of emails and guesses 😀 I didn’t reply to any because, honestly I can’t share it yet, and it only a few days away! Trust me, it kills me more than you! LOL! I’m really excited that you all are so excited already too! Just wait ……..good stuff!!

OK Im still busy so Im keepin this quick-well as quick as chatty me can.

I have totally fallen for this new line from MFT Presents-Anne LaPointe. Maybe that is because I love flowers so much? Anyway I got 2 totally different looking cards to share today.


This single is called Chill Out

I’m generally not a “bright” color person, but this tub made me feel so happy I could not resist.

 Plus this Scrum-diddilly-umscious (thats not a brand, but my own word I use) Chatterbox paper makes me smile! I am just in love with it. So I colored my bath tub to match, making it funky and cheery. I guess it doesn’t really have those “calm down” colors! LOL! Lemon tart is just AWESOME!!

Side Note: I had a meeting with Noah’s teacher yesterday, and she was “concerned” because he colors things “untraditional” colors. She said “He doesn’t care if his tree leaves are blue, the trunk is yellow, and his dog is purple (he always makes purple dogs because he says that is our dog Daisy in my favorite color :D)” Well she obviously has no idea WHO she is talking to! I told her I encourage my kids to be creative and think “outside” the box. Picasso was a famous painter and his people often didn’t even look like people!!! AND to chill, because  Noah is in Kindergarten!! Geesh. I think his drawings are all fabulous!

OK back to MY “untraditional” creation……..

I sponged behind my flowers with Lemon Tart ink, then colored my flowers with my singlo white gel pen. I’m really happy with the layout too! I think its a fun one. Not centered and layered all perfect, but balanced at the same time!!

The flowers are a Martha Stewart punch, with some Michaels vase filler bead thingy’s for the centers. The leaves are my famous bridal confetti find from Michaels, colored green.

The sentiment in the corner-Define you life is from a Stampin Up set.

OK moving on to a totally different look-



I can’t even tell you how much I LOVE this image! Its very different than her other vases.

I LOVE pruple and realized that it may be my favorite color, but I rarely use it in my creations! GASP! I am shocked by this finding. I checked out my scrap paper stash and saw that yellows, greens, chocolate, black and pink are my TOP colors! So I went with this card instead, and am very happy with it.

I used Plum Pudding from Papertrey ink (matching satin ribbon too). I also used my Core-din-ations cardstock in Lilacs, which added not only a nice contrast, but some texture!!

I used my coluzzle circle cutter (I personally LOVE that thing-I know others don’t like it, but I would recommend it for cutting 😀 It also has different size circles than the Nestabilities, so yes you need it! LOL!) to create my rounded top. I then layered a scallop circle cut from my nestabilities behind the layer to give me that look! Pretty cool huh?!

I challenge YOU to try that too. SO FUN!

I chose the Sprout collection from Memory Box for my patterned paper. I felt it was just so soft and feminine. I stamped the vase in the pattern as well, and adhered it with dimensionals, so it pops forward.

Now once I was done-SOMETHING was missing!! So I pierced a the top for interest and to draw your eye into the center, keeping it subtle, using an onare piercing template (which I LOVE!!!!). Then I was done!

Well I’m off. Only 3 more days to wait 😀

Till tomorrow-
