Pears and Apples tag challenge

Hello! When I saw Tag Tuesday's new theme, Pears and Apples, I couldn't resist doing my own drawing/painting because I love painting pears! So I made this with Inktense Pencils:

Wish the photo were brighter; I'm learning how to use a new laptop and editing software, argh. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cute coffee girl card

Hi! I'm happy to share a card I created with a Craftin' Desert Divas digital stamp. The company has closed and I want to show my appreciation for the many wonderful digis and stamps they have provided. The Coffee Loving Cardmakers blog is hosting a tribute to Craftin' Desert Divas; here is a link to the blog! And here is my card using Coffee Pot Cutie; I will surely miss the CDD shop and all their cute stamps!!

Sorry, not the greatest photo; I'm learning how to use my new laptop and new version of Photoscape... Thanks for stopping by!

"Circles" tag

I made this tag for the "Circles" theme challenge at Tag Tuesday.  I immediately thought of  a new digi stamp set at Vera Lane Studio (Etsy) called Floral Burst. There are several neat circle, flower, leaf and stem shapes.

Various stamps from stash
I wish the photo was better! It's not this dark! I decided to ModgePodge the tag to seal it and it made it look darker.

Guest Designer Pop-up Card 52CCT

Hello and welcome! I am very happy to be a guest designer at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for their new challenge that starts today, June 22. It's a technique challenge and the theme is: pop-up!

This was really a challenge for me because I had never made a pop-up card! Here is what I created, with the help of Lawn Fawn dies and stamps! First, the outside of my card:

Open it up...

This was a lot of fun and I look forward to practicing the pop-up technique so I get better at it! Thanks for stopping by and have fun with the challenge. I can't wait to see what you create!
