Day one in the craft cabin was all about Glitzy Glitter. Virginia’s View also has a color challenge going on…
Putting the two together, here’s what I came up with:
I love the glitzy, glittery, magical look of the ombre balloons and sentiment. Doesn’t she look like she’s about to travel the world?! When you get to the inside, you find out she’s just landed — or is just entering a Dr. Who time vortex in a little blue box (cue music!)!!!

‘Tis a glorious morning! For those of you whose weather isn’t cooperating, I send you this breath of fresh air from South Florida…
What a great way to start the day getting ready for the anniversary of the most important event in history tonight!
I have a quick post of a sweet and simple card for you today. Its main feature is a colorful strip done using the watercolor lifting technique that Jennifer McGuire Ink showed on her blog a while back. You can see her great instructions HERE.
(Sorry, once again, for the pixilated photo… still haven’t learned to fix that when WordPress resizes it… sometimes it turns out ok and others like this. sigh.)
Gooood afternoon, peeps! (Can you tell I’m feeling a little better today?!!)
I have spent a little bit of time today adding a new section to my blog. If you look at the top, you will see a new menu tab titled ‘Honors & Features.’ For those of you browsing on a PC, you can also see the widgets for these same honors on the right sidebar of my blog. ( I understand that for those of you browsing on phones or tablets, the view is different. I’ve had some complaints that they can’t find the subscribe button and don’t know where it would be for them. Sorry.)
I was blown away today to read a congratulatory comment today for being a featured designer in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog! I had been watching their posts this week, but obviously missed this one! It’s always an honor to have my work noticed, so I thought I’d share my joys with you, dear readers. In both the Honors & Features tab and the sidebar widgets, you can click on the pictures of the feature badges to go read the write-ups and you can click on the pictures of my cards to go back and read the original post in case you missed it.
For those of you who don’t want to have to go find the new page today, here are the links to the articles I was featured in:
Obviously, this doesn’t happen to me very often, but when it does, I will keep the Honors & Features page updated (and, in all likelihood, will probably brag to you in another post until it becomes routine!). Thanks for all your support!
Woot-woot! Thus endeth the re-tooting of my horn. : )

I have a surprise… I found two more sets of the “café presse” ‘Brewchitecture’ napkins (the ones on the right in the picture above). I’d like to send these to the two gals who liked my blog well enough to start following it….
