So last weekend when my nephew and I visited the craft store I noticed that Crayola was on sale. He has been wanting some decent colored pencils and I have wanted watercolor colored pencils for a while now. When I did my online research Crayola was actually rated fairly highly, so we got some.

Sometimes I know a general idea of what I want to do for a challenge, and most of the cards I make are inspired by challenges (well it is a whole complex thing but we will just go with that for now), but I don’t know how I am going to pull it off until I find a sketch that works. That was the case with this card. Occasionally I can just put a card together without a sketch, but most of the time I do better with at least the idea of one to work with. read more

I kept just seeing the flowers on this sketch and knowing that wasn’t what I wanted to do, and then my mind would head towards snowflakes but I don’t have the right things to do that. Finally, I remember these stamps! read more
