Ray of Sunshine!




I love the "face" in this set, but I don't believe that this card uses it as well as I hoped.  I should've used glimmer paper for the rays, but I was out, so I fussed with gold glitter on these -- and ended up wearing most of it!

Perfect Peacock!





This was the first set that I wanted from the new catty!  I unfortunately missed the deadline for the new Stampin' Blendabilities, so I did this with my usual method of watercoloring -- lifting the ink directly off the ink pad with an Aquapainter.  The Island Indigo/Wisteria Wonder centers of the feathers are flecked with gold ultra-fine glitter.  By the way, Mossy Meadow is the most glorious color ever!

Congratulations!!






This was a graduation card for my son.  Very suitable for him, as he is a brainiac, and will be going to the University of Maryland.  I made the brad by grabbing the UMd logo and shrinking it down  to fit within the 1/2" circle punch.  This also a Splitcoast Stamper Creative Crew project -- CCREW0614DF.

So sad to lose Secret Garden....






So sad to lose Secret Garden and it's coordinating framelits to this years' retired list.  I saw that SU! used it in this month's Stampin' Success to show the uses of Blendabilites, and was hopeful that it'd be in the new catalog -- but not....
