DB - Trinity Big Top

I'm over on the Doodlebugs WA blog with a card that mixes Trinity Stamps and Pinkfresh Studio--they were made for each other!

DB - Sending Big Hugs

A little birdie told me Trinity Stamps is coming to Doodlebugs WA so I thought I would play around with some of the recent release for fun.  You can read more on the DB blog.

Beach Chicks

I'm playing along with Fusion Seashells with this card.

I received the Taylored Expressions background recently (as a freebie!!!) and thought it would be perfect for this card with its summer vibe. Just look at all those cute icons like the shells, palm trees and drinks.  I embossed in white then used colors inspired by the seashells in a jar to create beach and water.

Those little Mama Elephant chicks are having the best vacation ever, aren't they?  I'm jealous.

Journal: Flower Power

I saw that the theme over at Simon Says Monday is Beautiful Blooms so I took the opportunity to create another journal page.  I love gardening, at least the concept.

Hope. Joy. Love.

PRIDE month has me in a rainbow mood so when I saw a Neat and Tangled rainbow tree card on Pinterest I had to make my own version.  What a clever idea.

Xmas Kickstart Stockings

I'm entering this in Christmas Kickstart #51 The Stockings Were Hung by the Chimney with Care. I love using up stuff found on my desk while neatening up! It's even better when I pull out the stamp set and find I had already cut out some stockings. Life is good.

Rainbow WA

Since it's Pride month, I thought I would send a supportive card to a friend of mine who lives in a less than inclusive place. Sigh.  Hopefully these next few years help to reverse the damage done.

Again, I'm using some leftovers including the rainbow paper and WA diecut.  I even had the girl image already cut out--thank you Scan 'n' Cut--LOL.
