If We Didn't Have Change...


Have you been crafting lately?  Hope so.
A few weeks ago, I created this little card with my Unity KOM.  "The sentiment reads, "if nothing ever changed, we wouldn't have butterflies".

Here is the card:

Instead of coloring with my Copic markers, I used Distress Inks.  It made putting the card together really quick!  Papers are from Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934. Hope you enjoy!

Snow Man Day!


At school, we've been talking about snowmen.  Or shall I say, snowpeople.
In one of my favorite children's books, the author Lois Elhert, saves all sorts of good stuff in a paper sack and creates a snow family-including a snow cat and dog.

My card today is inspired by this very book.  The December KOM has, as always, has some very fine images. The snowman on this card is no exception.  I just love how cute and simple he is.

Hero Arts and Basic Grey-Butterfly


I made several cards over the big holiday break and will be sharing them when I have the chance to post.

For today's post, I made a classy card featuring Hero Arts' antique engraving set as well as Basic Grey's Curio paper.  When The Paper Clipping Roundtable chit chatted about this new line from Basic Grey, I was pretty much drooling.  I love the colors, images and well even the smell of this line.  (Oh, I really like the smell of paper...such a sicko!)

So here's the card:
