Sunshine for you!


I really am not a frilly, girly girl. I’ve never been and at this point in time, see little hope of becoming one, but I am loving PTI’s Raspberry Fizz. It’s so pink and pretty and – yeah – even girly!

Have you had the chance to play with the Spellbinders Impressabilities? I bought a couple of these at Hobby Lobby (with a coupon, of course) and while the impression is not as deep as those from the Cuttlebug folders, it sure is pretty.

In the past, I played with misting my CS with alcohol to get a deeper impression. This works well, dries fairly quickly, but not quick enough for my impatient self. This time, I did not mist my cs, wanting instead a soft impression and instant results.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day filled with all that your heart desires!


Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers

CS and DP: Hollos white, PTI Raspberry Fizz

Inks, markers and coloring tools: Brilliance Coffee Bean, one of the SU pinks - not sure which one this is as I stamped a few of these little umbrellas, versamark

Extra goodies: EP, MS punch, pop dots
