Lots of Owls!

I thought I'd share a few pieces I did for my daughters Chi Omega sisters. Their symbol is the owl so I've been busy making owl paintings, owl cards, owl bookmarks, owl blankets.........lots of owls in my life these days and lots of Mod Podge

I painted the backgrounds and borders, then added paper owls with Mod Podge and covered the whole project with Mod Podge Gloss

Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!

That title is how I'm feeling right now - I'm so happy to get back to my much neglected blog. No excuses, just happy to be back at the computer!

The entire month of February has been a huge celebration at Papertrey Ink. Finally, on day 13, I'm jumping in and creating something for today's contest. The challenge was to design a floral project, I made a card for a friend, and then make an "embellishment sheet" to go along with it so the recipient can have some fun pieces to create their own projects. I made a "just for fun" card and included a sheet of flowers, leaves and butterflies that could be used on some more cards or even on a scrapbook page.

Thanks for stopping by,

Supplies: All papers and stamps are Papertrey Ink, the butterfly punches are by Martha Stewart and the ribbon and pom poms are from Michaels.

Polka Dots!

I'm very excited about a new interactive on-line magazine that will publish their first issue in December. Embellish Magazine has also posted their first challenge and it's all about color and polka dots! As you can tell by my blog title, I LOVE polka dots! My card has a little different take on polka dots this time. I stitched a fabric to the card as my background of dots, then added some more dots with buttons. Not your typical polka dots, but I love them just the same!!

Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop

It's so much fun on the 25th of every month to hop around and see what all the creative folks over on the PTI blog have posted. This month Nicole challenged us to "be green" and reuse and recycle portions of our PTI packaging in an earth-friendly way. I love to reuse the shipping boxes on cards and scrapbook pages. I just cut the sizes I need then peel away partial layers to get a multi- textured feel. I really liked the contrast on these Prom pictures - everything else was so "fluffy", I wanted the rugged look and feel of the brown box.
