Weekend to Myself!

It has been a beautiful fall weekend and I've found myself with lots of ME time!  I've watched the TV shows I wanted to watch, shopped, read and had time to get crafty!
Feels good!

Here are two cards I finished today using some water-colored images from Penny Black and Purple Onion Designs.  

For both cards I used patterned paper from Fancy Pants and Distress Markers to watercolor.  I pieced the background of the Happy Birthday card using Sizzix adhesive sheets. They work great for this kind of thing!  

This card uses Stacey Yacula's Rosie image. It's for my daughter, Rosie, who is away at college.  I'll enclose a few dollars so she can treat herself to a coffee on the way to class some chilly fall morning.

I'm working on a few Halloween cards as well as on a couple of mini books.  During the school week there is no time for crafting, so hopefully these quiet weekends will continue!

Have a wonderful week!


  1. Your cards are so so cute, great choice of papers and the pieced background on the first card has my mind reeling, it's genius and a great way to use those leftover pieces that are just too hard to throw out. Gotta say that Stacey's bunny looks very happy sitting there, what a sweetie!
