About Me

I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

I can't believe that a whole week has come and gone again! Yes, it's Sunday and that means it's time for another Paper Players challenge. This week, Claire has a great sketch for us to use.

I LOVE new sketches! Here's a St. Patty's Day card made using new and old MFT sets. You know I love to get out my Copics and color, and MFT-PI images are perfect for it.

I've had this Pure Innocence set for quite some time. She is stamped in Memento tuxedo black and colored with Copics. Since she's an Irish Lass, I gave her pretty red hair. These Doodlebug green prints were in my patterned paper stash and I've paired them with some pink ribbon. Who doesn't like pink and green together? The lucky horseshoe, 4 leaf clover and sentiment are from the newly released "Lucky" set.

Stop by the rest of the DT's blogs for more awesome inspiration.
