Crocheted ribbon is soooo pretty!
This is a card I created for a layout challenge that I submitted to a publication. I just love crocheted ribbon in general...but I really like how i used it on this greeting card. It was easy to weave the grosgrain through it and just gather it. It also made a beautiful rosette as an embellishment. Keep your eyes open at your LSS for these types of ribbons they are to die for and have lots of possibilities!!! This particular one is from May Arts.

Copic Airbrushing!
This was so much fun! I used the Unity Stamp Set Beach Days and Sun Rays. This stamp set is new to me and stamped nice and crisp. I used my copics to airbrush the sky and the beach sand. The more I play with the airbrushing the more smooth the end result is...so I will continue to play and hopefully you will see my progress over time! I colored in the umbrella and the accents with the markers themselves. What did we do before Copic???? Just wanted to share this with you!!!

Here are two cards I made for the monthly Amuse Challenge. I am not generally "simple" so to speak so this was a bit of a challenge for me. All the papers are from Amuse, the stamps as well. I did use the Fiskars treading water scallop border punch. Happy with the results. Join in if you want...you have until May 7th to post your submissions. Just click the link above. Happy Sunday!
