I am a SAHM mother of three...only one left home though. Paper crafting is my passion...I love creating things and saving memories. I also enjoy reading, baking, spending time with my friends and family, and walking my two furry children. My goal on my blog is to share something a little crafty, something yummy, and something fun every week. Thank you for visiting & comments are appreciated :)

Trying Something New....

So, one of the groups that I am an administrator for needed an angel for a swap.  It was a technique swap that I had not signed up for as I was pretty busy, but....you do what you have to.  The technique, Retiform Grid Technique, really didn't look very interesting to me...However, I love this card!  I used a CTMH
 set of stamps ( Art Philosophy - Celebration) and inks in green, purple, and pink.  For the cupcake, I water colored it with a blender pen.  You can't see it in the picture, but I added a little sparkle to the "frosting" with a Gelly Roll glitter pen.  I then pop dotted the sentiment and added the little crochet flower, button, and twine - all from my stash.  I think I will probably try this one again.  


Happy Crafting!
