Back to school.  I am teaching middle school reading this year.
Made 60 bookmarks to pass out at open house.
Features Paper Smooches "Smarty Pants" Stamps and Lawn Fawn alpha set.

I won a gift certificate to Paper Smooches on one of the challenges and picked up this adorable school themed set.  Thanks again to Word Art for the awesome challenge and Paper Smooches, one of the GREAT sponsors!! 
I am also entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp "Summer Fun" challenge, since sitting by the pool with a good book is serious fun!

Thanks to all former, current and future military families for their
service to this great country.
This card features a die I picked up at Hobby Lobby (LYB?)
I made the background one evening playing around with watercolor swipes and splatters.
Thanks for visiting,

Brewin' Up Bday Wishes

Saw the new challenge on the City Crafters' Blog and was inspired to make this card.
I loved the blues in the inspiration photo and this Lawn Fawn plaid paper
 was the closet I had to gingham.

Fintastic "Tank You"

Sharing a card with an ocean/water theme.
Bit of yellow water color in the back with blue splatters
I used 3 different distress inks to make the waves and
generously covered them in glossy accents.

Glossy Accents works so well to add "water" to a project:
