It is a Fun Friday with PB for J!

PB and J stands for Penny Black and Jill Foster!! the cute title for Jill's card classes.  See her latest one HERE on YouTube.

Jill has the sweetest voice that goes perfectly with her sweet personality! I have the honor of calling her friend.  Please join me in wishing the happiest of birthdays to the most amazing - hard working - friendliest card maker I know!!



Jill's birthday was actually yesterday but I wanted to be sure she received her card before seeing it here on my blog. : )







You may recognize this card from my November 6th Simplicity Sister post HERE.  In keeping with the theme for the Inkspirational Challenge I have CASED myself!

CAS Stencil Challenge

Hello friends : )

I am here with a card for Loll's first ever CAS Stencil Challenge!! Check out all the details of this fun new challenge HERE



I created a rectangle stencil from velum paper and sponged turquoise ink before adding some stenciled snowflakes.  Then, using some 1/6 " Post It tape (correction tape) I masked off a little border around the original rectangle.  Finally I stamped my sentiment! : ) Easy Peasy and ready to pop in the mail!!




Please join me in the gallery at the new CAS Stencil Challenge as well as at the, always fun, CASology challenge blog where the theme is "Frozen"!!

Sorry this is so late!

Happy New Year friends!! : )  I have been seriously MIA lately and have not gotten around to your blogs in a long time! I plan to rectify that today but before I go here are a few cards that I made for Mary at Serendipity Stamps.



Mary challenged me to come up with a few designs new moms or newlyweds might use for belated "Thank You" cards.











OH baby!! I thought this turned out cute : )  and could be used for any "Sorry this is late" kind of card...










Here is a card I colored with Copic markers.  I know Copic markers have been around from a long time but this is old dog has tried them for the first time!!


I have even taken Sandy Allnock's Copic Jumpstart class (which I recommend ).  You'll be seeing a lot more cards using Copic markers from me as I am LOVING!! the incredible bold bright colors I'm achieving when I use them : )

It might be a sweet touch for a new bride to make a card like this using colored card stock and markers in her wedding colors.














Thanks a bunch for stopping by today! I hope this new year is off to a wonderful start for you and your family.

Please visit Mary's all new Etsy shop HERE and her on-line store HERE : ) and when you visit tell her I said hello!! : )
