Snowflakes Blizzard – Creative Journey Art Retreat

Hi Angels!

I had another great event this weekend participating in the Creative Journey Art Retreat with Jenn Shurkus!

So much fun & a wonderful variety of sponsor companies making 12+ holiday cards.

Tonight’s card features Colorado Craft Company Snowman and Bunnies & Trinity Stamps Snowflake Kisses.

It’s my first full front Shaker card but I daresay it won’t be my last. We did lots of fun inking techniques including adding some background snowflakes with the exclusive event Season to Sparkle stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps.

Stay tuned this week for more retreat designs. Since the granddaughters were visiting, I have to still work on most of Saturday’s cards. Have to finish because next weekend is the Pinkfresh Studio Create & Connect event. Then in 3 weeks I’ll have the Crop & Create Holiday event. November is full of classes & events!

I hope you have a fabulous month full of blessings & thanks!

Ribbon Tree

Hi Angels!

It’s been a wee bit. I think I’ve caught up on rest from taking care of Reilly, who is doing great by the way & sees the vet tomorrow to get his staples out. Almost 3 weeks of doggy care.

While I haven’t been creating a whole lot, I have been sorting, organizing, doing some hand sewing & we got the new rug down on the studio floor. I have a couple of projects in the works and hopefully will be back on track to regular creating.

I was finishing up one of the classes from Crop & Create & stopped to create this card using the Trinity Stamps Ribbon Swirl Tree stencil that came in an order today.

I love designs that offer a modern twist or different perspective on the holidays and this tree is just perfect. I used Wilted Violet & Salvaged Patina Distress Oxides, some glittering snowflakes and the sentiment from My Favorite Things Merry & Bright set.

I hope your are looking forward to a wonderful weekend and a bit of kindness sharing along the way.
