All Occasion Card Using Ching-Chou Kuik "Spring Delight"

Hello friends.  How are you doing?  Are you ready for Spring/Summer?  We are getting more rain again in Southern CA.  It is supposed to rain 3 days this week. I feel like I am back in FL with all the rain.  LOL!  

I am here today to share another card I created using Ching-Chou Kuik "Spring Delight".  I love this sweet image; but have always been too intimidated to color it.  I am getting braver with my coloring this year; and starting to color the ones I wouldn't have colored a year ago.   All you have to do when coloring something that feels overwhelming; is just start coloring.  Do the things you are most comfortable first like skin and hair; then do one item at a time. Eventually you will get everything colored.  It's one step at a time.  Before you know it; it is all colored.  LOL!

Thank You Cards Using Close To My Heart Dreamin' Big Thin Cuts Bundle and Paper

Hello friends.  I hope you are doing well.  Can you believe that March is half over already?  Where does the time go?  


I created Thinking of You/Thank you cards for my customers; using the fabulous CTMH thin cut bundles.  These are so easy to use.  Just stamp your image on White Daisy cardstock; place the die over the image and cut.  It is so simple and they cut like butter.  I have never had dies that cut this easily; and without a hassle.  Aren't those butterflies pretty?  That's just the small one in the bundle.  There is also a dragon fly, a larger butterfly, lady bug and lots of awesome sentiments.   See picture of this thin cut bundle below or click here.

The thin cuts and thin cuts bundles are on sale for March only - While Supplies Last.  25% off all thin cuts (individual dies, die sets) and thin cut bundles (with the matching stamp set).  Click here for the sale list and to order.
