Super Bowl 50!



The Superbowl is this Sunday. Since our team will not be making an appearance this year, the day will be less about the teams on the field and more about the social aspect. Like many, I always look forward to the commercials, what wacky new trend or editing will be used to get my attention this year? What will become the next catchphrase that will appear in every conversation for the next six months?

Food also plays a large role in the day’s events. Where’s my recipe for the “perfect” dip? Are the hot wings too spicy or just right? More napkins, please! In the past, we have tried to connect the food table to team colors. Some teams, like the Bengals would be easy… orange pepper and meat shish kabobs. The Seahawks presented more of a challenge, but could be accomplished with a green salad and blueberries. This year has me stumped. Denver is orange and blue, Carolina is teal and black. Perhaps I’ll just volunteer for providing napkins and plates.

What are your Superbowl party traditions?


Valentine’s Day Update!



Love You Green
by Martha Lucia Gomez

Love doesn’t have colors or symbol’s, it just needs to be true and clear enough to grow everywhere. I created this card using Memento Luxe in three different colors. I used the single colors sometimes alone and other times combined to give a great shadows. The pigment ink is great not only to emboss with it and in today’s project you will see it in action.

Something Other Than Red



Love Makes Anything Possible by Jowilna Nolte

February is all about love and making it more visible in one form or another. This year I want to do more good for others sprinkling love around like confetti. To start off I made this card, a bold grungy heart pop against a light colored background using my favorite inks and stamps.

My Daddy, My Hero! by Terre Fry

My husband is our little girl’s everything; she has him wrapped around her little finger. I have watched her eyes light up from the time she was just a little baby to now almost turning eight whenever he walks into the room. This poem says it all!

More projects packed with inspiration!
