Celebrate Your Life


 This card is for my Mom's birthday which was November 2nd! I was LATE getting it into the mail but think I'm safe to post today. Lots of patterns happening.

I did a little rock n rolling with the orange inks on the pumpkins. A few sequins and twine bow finish it off. ~Rhonda

Mojo Monday #369 Give thanks


Mojo Monday #369 is a great sketch. It is also the last Monday of the month and that means tall & skinny week. 

I actually had these leaves setting on my desk just waiting for the perfect time to use them. The distress inks are so much fun to use on vellum. I also love the platinum embossing powder.  ~Rhonda

Gratitude - Feather Finery


Do you get the Pottery Barn catalogs? Do you drool when they arrive? The lastest one had some beautiful feathers in browns for pillow covers. That was my inspiration for this card.

There are some wonderful sentiments in the Gratitude Journal set. I just need to use them more. I'm excited to finally have a bow die. I think it will become a go-to die for lots of projects. 

I hope you have a fabulous week! I think this one is going to be busy!!!!! ~Rhonda

PTI October Blog Hop - Merry Merry



The PTI Blog Hop challenge for October is to create a project using a non-traditional holiday color scheme. You can download the different color recipes from here. I went with the recipe below.

I have seen several different versions of an eye chart type of card and decided this would be the perfect way to use so many different colors.


The base of my tree is the soup bowl from Comfort Food. I can't wait see what everyone makes. Happy Hopping! ~Rhonda

PTI October Blog Hop - Season's Greetings



The PTI Blog Hop challenge for October is to create a project using a non-traditional holiday color scheme. You can download the different color recipes from here. I went with the recipe below.

I decided to cut different size strips of the chosen colors to create my Christmas Tree. Definitely a non-traditional tree. I love how the sunrise impression plate creates some movement and "rays" of light. You can see that the best in the first picture.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! ~Rhonda

MIM #185 - Faux Stained Glass Falling for YOU


I thought I would make another card for this week's MIM #185 - Faux Stained Glass technique. This one is much simpler.
I used the die from the Make It Market Kit: Shakers and Sprinkles to dry emboss the frame for a focal point. I used my heat gun to set the ink and it gave the leaves a little bit of a warp but it works for this card.

ink: PTI - Chocolate Brown; Palette Noir Black
other: PTI - Shakers/Sprinkles die, Leaf Print dies, twine; Copic Markers - R46, YR23, YR18

MIM #185:Faux Stained Glass - Thankful



It has been forever since I have had time to stamp anything! I am thankful that my week will allow me some time to be creative. I NEED it!! Betsy's MIM #185: Faux Stained Glass was just what I needed to stretch my brain.

I am still getting the order of the shaker card pieces mixed up. You would think that as many times as I've watched Betsy's video that I could figure it out. 


Have a great week! ~Rhonda
