Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

A little Kindness 2

This card was made for a package of cards I am making for my sister. She love purples and butterflies. I 
too had forgot about the kissing technique until I looked at the following card and how to color the jewels: http://stampingwithlinda.typepad.com...ng-moment.html. Thanks Linda. Two cards in one day with the same stamp set - good for me.

A Little Kindness

After being gone for a week of camping I am home and ready to play. Also will be going to back to school orientation later this week and then back for the year next Monday. Play time will be cut back a little then. During the week at camp I developed a very sore groin and the pain ran down my leg and into my kneecap. Not sure what is going on there, hope it is not a blood clot but I do go to the Dr. this pm. 

This is for the Color Challenge CC491 today and MOJO354 inspired by stampinChristy. I did change the Bermuda Bay to Tempting Turquoise to go with the DSP I used for the card. Thanks Christy. I really like the layout and wanted to used this new stampset for this week's challenge. I did layer my two printed pieces and added ink around the circle to make it stand out just a little more. Added a little Old Olive for the leaf and cut the ends of my ribbon with some pinking shears.
