Aaaaand it’s #TexturalTuesdays!! Yay!! Oh Happy Day! Which also happens to be the sentiment that I used from the very sweet Oh Happy Birds Stamp set that I used for my card today. My card in The CLASSroom with Ellen Hutson is featuring Mama Elephant and Molotow Masking Pens.
I may have tried too hard to make the pens work. Or overthought it. Which I do. It’s not rocket science, but when something is new to you, and you’re really NOT sure what to do with it or how to fit it into your world…overthinking comes soooo easily. ;)
Here is a photo of my Oh Happy Day card:
I love using loose watercoloring for backgrounds. The Molotow Masking Pens are very useful in keeping desired areas completely free of ink and paint. I do believe that I need more practice in using them, however. (Keeping it real.)
It gets frustrating when you just want to complete your project and all you do is mess up, though. *sigh*
If you have one of these pens I’d love to hear your feedback! Now that mine is done, though? It really IS “Oh Happy Day!”

I have a post over on the Scrapbook Adhesives Blog by 3L® blog today. That card is a Sympathy Card. I made it for my dear friend, Holly. I wish I had words for what Holly means to me. Knowing that she is in pain over the loss of her father just tears me up inside. She is one of the most gentle, caring, smartest, loving, amazing human beings I am privileged to know.
Making this card for her was so hard. Making ANY Sympathy Card is hard. You just want to hold the person you care about, tell them everything will be okay (even though you feel like such a liar), let them know how much they mean to you. But somehow…it all seems like it’s not enough. You can’t bring back their loved one. That loss can’t be undone. No words, no card, nothing can un-break the heart…not right now.
I made this Sympathy Card for Holly. Because I love her. And I feel her pain because she is like a sister to me. And I wish I could take her pain away. I hate that she is hurting. That her whole family is grieving. Her father sounded like an amazing man. He had to have been. He raised a wonderful daughter.
I love you, Hols. My deepest condolences and prayers go out to you and your family. ♥

Hello! I have a brand new card up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today that I’m excited to share with you. I’m using the January Greenhouse Society Set – Crocus from Technique Tuesday which includes the sentiment, “Love Always” in a beautiful font.
Of course, this is just a sneak peek of the card. There is MUCH more to see for this “Love Always” card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog, so you’ll really want to go there to check out the whole kit and kaboodle (whatever that means anyway!).
I used a few different dies, some very pretty (and NEW!) patterned paper, and one of the lovely new pigment powders that Donna Salazar just released at this past CHA for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L®. Oh! And I also used her Girlie Grunge Art Medium. Fun stuff!
It’s a pretty card so I hope that you’ll make your way over to their blog. ♥ Love always….
Hi everyone! Happy Saturday! I hope you’ll join me on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog today where I have an Autumn Mixed Media Canvas to share with you today. Here’s just a taste:
This is a super duper, easy-peasy mixed media canvas to make. It barely even qualifies as mixed media, really, but there IS paint on it, there IS embossing paste, paper, adhesive, sequins, glitter… and even PanPastels. Okay, maybe it IS mixed media. Hahha! I just love all the shimmer and shine this has on it. It turned out very pretty. (If I DO say so myself.)
So, please pop on over to the blog and check out the rest of the photos and the post. And if you have any questions on how I made it? You know where to find me. :)
Hey there! Happy Sunday. :) I have a fun dimensional window card on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. It even comes complete with a snazzy tutorial that I made just for you…yes, YOU! :)
I wish you all could see just how cool this card is. The inside of the card fits perfectly into the front of the card. And the vellum sentiment doesn’t interfere in the slightest. It’s just so lovely. I may be a tad proud. Although, my photography skills are sorely lacking. Sorry. And…apparently I’m a vellum addict.
Anyway! Thanks for joining me today to see the window card I made. Tomorrow starts the Graphic 45 and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® Blog Hop that’s going on all week long. It’s going to be awesome. I’ll be up on Wednesday, but be sure to stay tuned all week long for giveaways!
