I get my Craftiness from my Mom!

Hi Everyone!

Last week I had the privilege of attending my Aunt and Uncle's 50th Wedding Anniversary.
They have always been a part of my life and it was a joy to celebrate with them.

My Mother made the cake for her brother and his wife.
She has made cakes, and tons of other crafty things, for as long as I can remember.
She's even taught me a thing or two.  :0)

Mom asked if I had some gold ribbon that she could use on the cake.
Did I ever!!

She used Gold Crown from the Royal Bundle and it was perfect!
The only thing better than how great the cake looked-
was how it tasted!
(My Mom makes the best cakes ever!!)

Thanks for stopping by!

Just Because

Hi Everyone!

It is my day to post on the 3 Girl JAM Blog and we are in the middle of an "Anything Goes" Challenge!

I made a quick and easy card that can be used for almost any occasion.  
I used a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps and topped it off with some London Blue ribbon!

I used Spectrum Noir markers to color in the image
(I'm finally figuring out how to blend my colors!!)

Make sure you link up your projects!

Thank You

Hi Everyone!

Julie here with a special Thank You card that I made for a special person.

I used some 3GJ Coral Crush Ribbon to go with the DCWV Coral Cotuire paper.
The flowers and the shapes are from the Silhouette store.
The sentiment is from Pink by Design.

Something Different

Hi Everyone!

I was in my new craft room feeling very inspired the other night when I pick up a canvas print a light bulb went off in the 'ol brain.

"I want to paint, and stamp, and use paper, and ribbon, and glue" I thought.

And before I knew it, I had taken an old canvas and turned it into this!

I will admit- the paper (with the house and birds) is DCWV paper.  I did some piecing and did paint and stamp on it- but the beautiful watercolor effect was manufactured (but I won't tell if you don't!)

The flowers were made with canvas paper and 3 Girl JAM Ribbon and painted with Creative Inspiration Paints.  The centers of the flowers have some gorgeous Pinque Peacock embellishments.
I printed out some words and inked and glued them down. And the rest is history.

I love getting my fingers inky and full of paint and glue.

I think I found a new love!
