The spinners are images with a front and back image you adhere together and they spin around.

I Brake for Teachers!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Today I'm sharing a "work in progress."  I work in an elementary school and a couple of us have decided to do a few things to help beautify the school and make it a nicer place to work.  For instance someone added some table cloths, a flower arrangement and brought a pretty clock into our staff lunch room.

I plan on making several little "pictures" to hang in different areas. 


I trimmed out her purse and shopping bag because they didn't really make sense for a teacher to be holding them.  It shows you that your stamps can be even more versatile with a little creative thinking.
I figure the purse strap just looks like a bracelet now.

I hope the staff will enjoy these funny little
 wall hangings and it will put a smile on their faces.

I Brake for Babies!

Hello and happy Saturday!

Yesterday I had a baby shower at work and my grade level went in on a gift together.  I made the card.  I used


I had no idea when I made this but the plates at the shower were white with blue polka dots.
Just a fun coincidence!

I used Copic markers to color the B and rattle.

New Watercolor releases at Art Impressions!

Hello Ai fans!

There's a brand new release at Art Impressions.  We all know they're famous for Bonnie's watercolor images and the new ones are a wonderful addition to an already amazing collection.  I was lucky enough to get to premiere the Critters and Containers!

On my cards I've used these new releases...

4867 WC Foliage Set 2
4868 SC Flower Set 2
4869 WC Small Container Set
4873 WC Cats Set
4874 WC Bunnies Set
4876 Wooden Chair Mini Set
4903 WC Sentiments Set


My first card, with the Easter egg shape also has the Bunny & Ducky Mini Front and Backs on it. (for the sentiment)


I love Gingham and Polka Dots and thought they'd be a great compliment to these new images.


I love the yellow papers for spring.  They make me think of my daffodils as they bloom.
We were just buried under about 33" of snow in upstate N.Y. so my crocuses that bloomed in the 3rd week of February are long gone.  My daffodils will probably be the next sign of Spring.


As much as I like the light, bright cards above for Spring I had to make one card that's more to my color liking...I love deep earthtones.  This one doesn't have any of the critters but has a pretty container filled with flowers.I think the navy goes nicely with the same yellow paper that the lighter colors went with in my other cards.
