Good Friends and Support

  Hello and happy hump day. Are you surviving the week of full moon, time change, and almost Friday the 13th?  And we won't even mention the other hot topic of concern. I'm keeping things light and cheery and uplifting.....see what I did there? lol. I am thankful I can escape the day to day crazy with a paper, ink and a punny sentiment. The Tightening Her Bra Straps stamp set from the February release is a fantastic friendship set and I love the encouraging words included with it.  I colored up the pretty bra and used the matching Tightening...

Walking on Sunshine

So far this year we have received around 20 inches of rain!  I am pretty sure we have had more overcast or rainy days than sunshine which is not typical for where I live.  Lucky for me, I am quirky and I love the rain.  Another quirky thing about me is that I love to create the opposite weather on my projects.  So if it's cold out, I love butterflies and bright colors but in the summer when everyone is reaching for their beach stamps, I am reaching for my snow scenes!  Since we have had so much gloom lately, it...

Winter Blues with Ceal Pritchett

Hello Everyone! It's Ceal here to share a winter card with you today because winter seems to be lingering in my part of the world. We had snow last week not once, but three times and on the days it wasn't snowing it was cold and rainy. I have the winter blues and I am so ready for spring! To create this card I started with a white top folding card base and a white panel. I stamped the trees from the  February release Watercolor Trees and Bushes set with embossing ink and then embossed them with WOW Sparkling Snow embossing...
