It's Tic Tac Toe Time

At Color My Heart
I've been working on my Christmas cards. It was hard to decide which 
Tic Tac Toe colors to use.
I finally decided on the top row: Harbor, Shortbread, and Scarlet.
I really like to add gold or silver to my cards but that will be for
another day. I did add the Shortbread colored liquid pearls
 on the berries. Liquid pearls are a fun addition to holiday cards.


Come play Tic Tac Toe with us at Color My Heart.

A Triple Play

At Color My Heart
This was quite a challenge. First I had to go into my retired stacks
 to find my Carolina CS. My Sangria CS was still handy and
 Flamingo is with my current cardstocks. I used the water brush 
with the ink pads to color the scarf and hat on my polar bear. 
It's always fun to go back with retired colors. 
Carolina is one of my favorites. Thanks Color My Heart.

Come Triple Play with us at Color My Heart.

We've Moved


From the West Coast to the East Coast
We've Moved Announcement
Front of card


Inside card
One of my long time friends moved from San Bernardino, CA
 down to the Salton Sea area.  Recently we had been talking 
about her moving back to San Bernardino to be closed to her son. 
So recently she called me up to give me her new address and 
I was so excited that she was back. But to my huge surprise
 her son packed her up and moved the whole family to
 Georgia. She was calling me to say she wanted 
me to make her "We've Moved" announcements.

Stamping Fun at Heart 2 Heart

Meets Color My Heart Fun
The inspirational photo below gives us a fun mixing of colors for 
a specialty stamped card. I used the pinks, purples, and greens 
for my card. To get the blended ink colors on the flowers 
 use the re-inkers on a baby wipe to make a mixed colored ink pad.
 Fold your baby wipe into a 4" square. Place on a 4" block.  
Add a few drops of re-inker on the wipe and use like an ink pad

Use this inspirational photo to create a stamped project 
and share at Heart 2 Heart and/or Color My Heart.
