If a Man Speaks... (with video)

 Hello friends!

If you know me... you know I love to make cards that make people laugh.  I'm always on the lookout for silly stamps.  Technique Junkies has a bunch of them.  They just released this one.  

I wanted to create a forest.  All the stamps I had didn't leave a big enough opening for sentiment.  I decided to create my own forest.   I made a video showing you how EASY this is to do.  Click here to check it out.

Two Kitties with Video

Hello!

Watch these two kitties come to life. They are so sweet. Be sure to watch to the end. I almost had to go find a litterbox... it was nerve wracking to add those cute strips on that tabby cat. I wasn't sure they would look right. What do you think?

Scripty Sunflowers with Video

 Hello all, 

I'm so happy to be part of the Technique Junkies release this month.  Check out these beautiful sunflowers.  I'm not sure what the artist had in mind when they were drawing them, but the Ukraine Crisis was the first thing that popped into my head.   I wanted to create a card to celebrate their courage through this tough time.  

If you are curious about how I made this card, you can check out my video here
