Hello everyone..

Some things are meant to be read and not spoken – case in point – trying saying the blog post title quickly.. I promise you’d feel like a spy.

I wanted to share some projects I made for Die Cut With A View (DCWV) last month for QVC UK on a free lance design basis. I was thrilled they called me, more thrilled with the amazing fabric paper they sent me and most thrilled with the projects I made. (no the photos are not my family, they sent me photos to work with too).

You can catch my projects on DCWV on QVC  tomorrow (September 5, at 2pm England time) – and here is a time zone convertor for you to figure out what time that will be for you (it’s September 5, 8am CST for me).

Moxie Fab World – Repetition challenge (card with 6 squares) & Gal/Qt/Pt challenge (Card with clothes line)


Delicious purple card …

I haven’t used purple, especially darker purple, much on cards just because I find darker cards harder to photograph. But when my sister-in-law asked for a purple card, I thought I’d give it a try to see if I could pull of a darker purple card.  Here it is …

I am surprised and how rich and warm it looks and I love how rugged yet soft it looks when paired with khaki green. I guess I will be using more of this color combo.

Here are the details for the card:

- Patterned paper is from Die Cut with a View.

- Tilda (magnolia Stamps) is colored with Copic Markers,

- Ribbon and flowers are from Offray.

- Tag was die cut with Spellbinders and stamped with Country Charms labels from Flourishes; sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Stay cool in this 100F heat.
