Power Poppy Pretties

 During the NCAA Tournament, 
we watched A LOT of basketball.

Lot's of Birthdays

 I watched a live at Gina K. Designs last night
where Gina was demonstrating the Kissing Technique.
I haven't used this technique in years, but it works
beautifully with her new Forever Flowers kit.

I stamped the outlines for the flowers in black and
then the Wild Dandelion layer.
I added Coral Reef to the Rose Lace background stamp and
then "kissed" my stamp to the background and
then stamped it on top of the Wild Dandelion.

It did the leaves the same way using Apple Mint and Lucky Clover.
The pink flowers were done using Bubblegum and Red Hot inks.



I used the beautiful Elegant Script stamp for the backgrounds.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

The set I used is called Lace Flowers.


I colored the flowers and leaves with
Faber Castile Polychromos colored pencils.

The background was made using a gel press and
Distress Oxide inks in Spun Sugar, Kitsch
Flamingo and Spiced Marmalade.
I also used a Medium Dot Stencil from
Simon Says Stamps.

Wishing You Peace

 I was inspired by Gina's latest video when she colored 
a beautiful flower with colored pencils and gamsol.  
So, I picked out some incentive stamps from her collection and started to color.



I collect patterned paper and then don't use it, so 
decided to pull out those gorgeous papers and
match them up with these pretty flowers.

I used Thank You Friend,  Garden Tour patterned paper,
Master Layouts # 2 & 3,  Peaceful Roses (sentiment) and
My Minds Eye enamel dots.



I used Peaceful Florals, Garden Tour patterned paper,
Angel Aura embellishments, Double Stitched and Single
Stitched Circles and Master Layouts #4.


I used Inspiring Poppies, Poppy Prints patterned paper,
Master Layouts #1 & 3 and Doodlebug Sprinkles.
I colored the poppy with a Zig Clean Color marker.


I used Peaceful Roses, Clear Dew Drops embellishments,
Petals & Wings patterned paper, Master Layouts #1 & 4.

The colored pencils I used were Faber Castille Polychromos.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

I found the one whom my soul loves.

 We received about two inches of snow last night and now are waiting for the second wave to come through.  The Weather Service is talking about a total of eight to eleven inches of snow along with blowing and drifting.  It should be interesting.  Fingers crossed that we don't lose our power.

This card I love!


I was so excited to pull out the Boxwood dies
and the BotaniCuts Forget Me Nots die.
These are so beautiful and fun.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Please stay safe and warm.
It looks like this weather system is affecting a lot of us.
