Paper Smooches, 10 minute craft dash and 2 New Members!

I have great news - 2 new members have found their way  to my blog! Thank you for joining in and helping my blog grow! I want to extend a warm WELCOME to 

she not only makes beautiful cards, takes great photos but also specializes in calligraphy - I am glad you can't see my handwriting  - its nothing to be proud of....


an awesome paper crafter. Right now she does a year in review - hop on over and see her beautiful work.

And as customary I have a welcome picture for you. I took it in Chicago, where I attended a conference at the McCormick Center a few week ago. This glass work is by Costas Varotsos, a greek artist, who does just amazing things with glass.

I hope you like it as much as I do. But if not maybe my card puts a smile on your face......


Its ANYTHING GOES at Paper Smooches this week. By far my favorite kind of challenge.... I have a couple of kids birthdays coming up, so I pulled out my brand new Zoo Crew set to make this card.

That hippo just makes me smile. The sentiments are Sentiment sampler and Zoo Crew. Added some Washi tape and sequins. The hippo is colored with Copics. I photographed it twice to show the sparkle of the sequins better....

This was a very quick card. It took me 9 minutes and 43 seconds, but only because I took my time with the sequins......

I am linking this with the 10 minute craft dash - also anything goes. I am sorry to see the craft dash go - its their last challenge :(  


 I am also linking this card with Keep it Simple - Anything goes

Seize the Birthday - Anything Birthday with optional numbers

and lastly with Simon Says - use something new - used my brand new Paper Smooches set
