Rainbow Sunshine

I sponged Distress inks on white glossy, inked over some stencils and layered the black diecut (by Tailored Expressions), then I cut the word twice (black & white) offset it and popped it up.
I am hoping the colors mimic a rainbow and the center circle a sun. I missed last week as I had a houseful of grandkids underfoot.....

Tires Or Testicles

I did a watercolor wash and stamped the little truck twice and cut off the box to lift it up, layered that over the Roxs and popped it up. Added a stamped border and done! I hope the verse isn't too offensive but I got a laugh from it....

LIM: Touchables

There is a new challenge at
and it is to make something
Imagine the possibilities!
Here is my card:

I cut the peacock with a die by Ellentina
from some glittery fun foam and
layered it on a label cut with die by SB.
I added a teal gem for an eye and used a corner rounder
and some dimensional tape.
This is certainly "touchable" and
really glitters IRL.

for lots of nifty ideas and samples.

LIM 285 Wine A Bit

A new challenge at
This week we are to make art using
Below is my work:
I began with a die by SB
"Fancy Tags" that I stamped the verse by
Art Impressions.
Then I cut some designer paper by
Prima "Fairy Flora" into a strip
which I threaded onto my tag
after I sponged some ink around edges.
When I had that centered I marked the
edge and stamped several bottles
by Bad Axe Trading Co.
I figured I had better quit before I
did too much and ruined that
"white" I tend to do!
Check out the 
site to see the lovely samples over there!

LIM284 "Take Time"

This week's challenge over at
is a one layer card with a "time" theme.
OLCs are so not my faves but I try.
I wanted to use something other than
clocks as it seems most think of these
with this sort of challenge.
So I went with a stencil by 
memorybox "Texture Shine"
I masked off some to keep that desired
white space and sponged Distress inks
"Mustard Seed" and "Spiced Marmalade".
The verse stamp is by MFP and those
tiny speckles are a stamp by Judith
(to hide a smudge of course).
Be sure to check out

to see all the nifty ideas there!

LIM#283 Kitchen Colors

A new challenge over at
This week is to make a CAS card using your 
kitchen colors.  Below is my card:
I paper pieced the little giraffe image
(by Art Impressions)
with some dp by DCWV "Safari Chic"
and sponged some Distress inks for a quick scene.
I popped the stitched frame 
(by Simon Says Stamp) after
inking the verse (by Stampendous).
I added a small flower for a sun to hide an oops.
It sort of looks like a sun?

And below is a pic of my kitchen and the colors.
You see the pottery on cab tops is from
New Mexico (the blues and greens),  walls are yellow and cabs are brown
