was inspired by Independence Day – thinking of banners and buntings hanging throughout the neighborhood. Actually, in our subdivision, people hang buntings and set out their flags on Memorial Day and leave them up all summer! It’s such a lovely thing to see!

But, I think my final design is just more Summery overall —

For the Festive Friday Challenge #FF0010). Featuring: Pick a Pennant stamp set, Playful Pennants dies. #nicolewatt #pmretreat #stampinup #celebrate #happy #summer #handstamped

I wanted to keep the design Clean & Simple, so there’s lots of white space, crisp color coordination and a few coordinating embellishments to help the accent color (Mango Melody).

Today’s project can be completed in just a few short steps.

AECP: Faux-clipse Thank You Card

Don’t you just love the eclipse technique? How about the faux-clipse?
The eclipse technique is super fun and not too difficult, but I created a riff on the technique, I’m calling a faux-clipse.

On the CASE: Faceted Flower

It’s coming!
Spring is trying so hard to melt all the snow here in East Nebraska – but, it’s coming! Soon, the grass will be growing and little plants will be pushing up from the ground. Why not add to the anticipation with a lovely, but simple, faceted floral design, courtesy of Concord & 9th!

AECP: Build a Garden Scene Card

It’s time to chillax with some coloring!
I took my project over the top today with a combination of Copic and Polychromos pencil coloring. I am not embarassed to say that the elements took me about 90 minutes to color.
