Paper Smooches

Happy Wednesday!

This blogging is hard work - I never quite know what to say! :)

I tend to never have a shortage of words, unless I'm sitting
here trying to come up with something to write on my blog - figures.

Today's card is for one of my favorite challenges.

It's an "anything goes" week, which is so fun!
I can't tell you how much I love these stamps!!!
You constantly get a crisp image, and that just rocks!

Here is my card for the week-

I love CAS, and this totally fits the bill!

Thanks for stopping by!

Pinspired Strawberries

Who doesn't love them?
They are almost as fun to color 
as they are to eat!

Todays card is for the challenge over at

Here is my card -

I used some of my fabulous Unity stamps for this one!
When I'm coloring strawberries with my Copics, I do it the

on the spots, and then throw a bit of orange or yellow
onto those areas.
