With Love

My lovely friend, Kathy Racoosin of The Daily Marker, is hosting a challenge this month, if you post ANYTHING that you've colored on social media, add the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. I've had a great time participating, and my kids have gotten involved too. You can see some of our daily coloring on my Instagram profile. I'd love for you to follow me there, too. 

This was, literally, the 2nd time I'd used my eBrush with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers. If you don't get your marker seated correctly, you get that splatter...I just went with it. The stamp is from the Crafter's Companion Art-Kure US Landmark Collection

Crafter's Companion: Back By Popular Demand

Okay, only kind of.

As some of you may know, I left the Crafter's Companion Inspiration Team last Fall. I was feeling overwhelmed, I was missing deadlines...I was disappointing myself and people I cared about. So I resigned.

But it felt wrong.

Then in mid to late December, Taylor (she who is in charge of teams and other neat stuff at CCUS) asked me "So, you ready to come back yet?".

I said, "No, but ask me again in January."

She did, and here I am.

I love Taylor and Crafter's Companion. I'm very glad to have been invited back to the team. Thank you, my friend. <3 nbsp="" p="">
(words, so many words, i know)

I got a little crafty this weekend with the Louise set by Scruffy Little Cat for Crafter's Companion. I love these crazy, big-lashed divas! I added sequins and sparkle, of course. But I also added Sakura Black Glaze pen to her lashes, because, SERIOUSLY!

MFT Guest Blogger

Yup, that's me! I'm so excited to be guesting for MFT today (and maybe later this month as well).

I had so much fun creating with some of the February release products, I made this little guy for here on my own blog.

I used the Candy Jar Companions stamp set and coordinating Candy Jars Die-Namics to create this fun hugs & kisses card. 

Be sure to stop over at the MFT Blog and check out the yummy card I have over there.
