Sooo, thought I'd share with you here then! :D I had a total of 6, SIX!! rejected, stung just a bit, but, tis ok, it's not gonna take away my love of this little hobby! We all have different tastes, and mine just wasnt what they editors where looking for THIS time! :D Here it is, using the bleaching technique:

I used Gina K Designs' Honey Mustard cardstock and I LOVE how it bleached out! Isnt that a gorgeous Daisy!?? I did use a marker on the leaves after bleaching, and added some pen work with a white gel pen and copic marker. But yea, this is one of my favs!! You likey? :D

Happy Valentine's Day! And a sale from Gina K!

Hey y'all! Hope you are having a fun Valentine's Day! Me? Well, we could skip over it and it wouldn't bother me, lol! Anyways, I made this little decorative element using 1 1/2 cube blocks:

I took the wooden blocks and rubbed them onto my distress ink pad, and also distressed the papers I used too with same ink and a sponge dauber. I purposely stacked them slightly askew like that too..just a simple little decoration to sit out on Valentine's Day! I love changing things like that in my house...usually on the mantel is where I do my seasonal things. :D

And wanted to let you know too about a sale at Gina K Designs!! Here is the link to the 2 stamp sets on sale right now:


I love both of these sets! They really are awesome sets to have and now with an awesome price!

That's all from me for now! Give someone a random hug today, they might need it! :D

Happy Birthday Gina K! No, no I mean.....

..shhhhh, we aren't suppose to do that! :P! Like we could NOT have wished our wonderful leader, Gina, a Happy Birthday! Here is a little quick card I made for Ms. Gina:

I wanted something bright and cheerful, like Gina! I consider myself so very lucky to have found Gina K! She is such an awesome person, inside and out! I am so proud to say that I'm on her Design Team, its such a special honor for me, truly! And no matter how OLD she gets, she won't change, she's just like that! :D

Here are some links for you to enjoy, my fellow DT, in wishing Gina a Happy Birthday and some just might have a bit of blog candy here and there:

Gina, I hope you have a special day! One with wishes come true and CAKE! Dont forget the CAKE! :D
