The first card reminds me of my middle granddaughter so much and I had to laugh at your comment about the ink blending looking like she was having fun in the dirt. Live it up anyway you want!



Please send me you address in an email to, and I will PM you with a tracking number


I am next to the last stop in the Friends of Unity Blog Hop!!
So I know you're tired and ready to make me a wonderful comment!! LOL😁
I won't keep you here long, I promise!!
Let's get right to my first card
My first card is from the Kit of the month May 2020 called {beginning of anything}
Gorgeous kit!!
When I saw the tulips, I thought to myself, "I'll be water coloring this for sure"
In real life, the tulips are a deeper color, but for staging purposes, I had to lighten the photo.
I sent this pretty thing to my bestie in Georgia, Gwen ...she is the quintessential "Southern Belle" and she's sweeter than sweet tea!!!!   
here's a little close up, so you can see the clear drops I used, as well..
Just a little peek at the pattern paper here :)

Next up, is this fun card, where the pattern paper takes center stage!!
I absolutely love this fun piece of paper from 
P13 called The Garden of Books 
For the image, it's from KOM for January below
For my last card, I grabbed a random sheet of pattern paper...I stamped the butterfly onto vellum using Versafine, Vintage Sepia, and heat embossed with clear...then, I fussy cut it out, and popped that bad boy up with an pop dot!! LOL 
SUPER easy card

Well, I hope you have gotten so much inspiration for this months cue!!!
If you do make a card inspired by us, please tag one of the team when you share on social media, ok!!!

Sorry about these photos...I have had a few lighting issues and cannot seem to get it just right...I welcome ANY suggestions~ I have 4 Ott lights, and 4 LED lights and Not one of those are working out for me, so far...and I have a light box, but I'm not that crazy about it because of the square photos we have to take for social media to not edit them....thanks in advance!!
