Pink and Brown

Pink and Brown are the colors of choice this week for the Gothic Arch challenge. I built up a collage base of images from ArtChix and Collagevisions. Stamps from Time to Stamp/I Brake for Stamps.

Once Upon a Time

Here's my art piece for Sunday Postcard Art's, Once Upon a Time theme. I used an old French postcard as my base. What better way to celebrate "Once upon a time..." than by opening a good book?

Letter of the Alphabet

Last week's Created Byhand challenge was a Letter of the Alphabet. Wanted to work this challenge in before week's end.


The Mixed Media Monday challenge this week is Heroes. I think moms are the ultimate heroines. As daughters, we don't really get insight into a mom's childhood until we see our moms with our own daughters. The quote up the right side says, "The goddess is alive and magic is afoot."

Time for Tea

This week's Gothic Arch challenge is Time for Tea. Stamps from Oxford Impressions. Arch created with a good cuppa Tazo tea. :)

Let the Good Times Roll

The Sunday Postcard Art challenge is that of celebration, be it Carnivale, Mardi Gras, masks, etc. I have always wanted to attend Mardi Gras, but I think the closest I'll get to it is right here in Alaska. I spent a summer working at the Halsingland Hotel in Haines out of college. Haines had embraced a type of summer Mardi Gras celebration that even now is quite memorable to me. I tried to capture a bit of that in this piece.


Jewel is the theme for the Dans ma Maison challenge this week.

Use Hearts in a Different Way

The Wednesday Stamper challenge is certainly interesting this week. I've used hearts in my 4x4 in a different way in that each heart represents the point on a compass. Voila! Follow your heart. This also ties in with the upcoming Mixed Media Monday challenge - hearts/wings. Happy Valentine's Day!

Love and Romance

The gypsies of Altered Gypsy are so on top of Lisa Vollrath's Holiday Countdown that I swear they're posting a link before the actual countdown even begins! :) My gothic arch contains one of the beautiful love and romance (which also happens to be the Mixed Media Monday theme for the upcoming week!) images from the February 2nd sheet. It also speaks to the Gothic Arch Hearts challenge posted. Stamps from Somerset, Inka, and Oxford. Happy Valentine's Day!


A quick ATC using one of my new stamps I picked up from I Brake for Stamps, the Stampinback Line. I'm such a sucker for vintage images!
