I used one of the new sentiments from the Rain or Shine set and tried my hand at a mixed media type card.  The jury is still out on it, but it sure was fun playing with paint again.....I think I'll keep this style for my art journals!.  I love the sentiment, this set has some really awesome ones, you can find them HERE!

Fishing for Kisses

It's Monday................Yay!! I'm sharing a little tag/project I made with the Gone Fishing stamp set from Paperie Ink.  I made a little tag and put it around a clear gift box filled with Swedish Fish.  I used a little washi, colored the worm and words with distress markers and  also the background was done with distress ink and my water brush.  I hope you like it and head over to Paperie Ink to check out the fun/cute stamp sets, they are really versatile!

I used Elisha the Mage for my card today, can I just tell ya how much I love the Elisha and Kiersten images!!  It really feeds my love of fantasy and medieval times.  I love the strength shown in these gals and they both would be perfect to send to any of the women in your life for really any occasion.  I think I'll be using Elisha a lot for a MAGICAL birthday wish!  I hope you enjoy the hop, there are tons of fabulous projects ahead!

One more exciting thing....the COFFEE CARD KITS!!
