Giant Mushroom Art Page

 I had the page made for about 2 years I washi taped and used watercolor to make the background. I thought the Giant Mushroom from Sheepski designs would be a cute focal point for this page. So, I used it for my August DT project for TTCRD. I added a label because it's a habit I have had lately. Then I added the phrase "It's a good day for a good day" which I thought went well with the gnomes. I admit it didn't turn out exactly how I saw it in my mind, but I like to make different pieces not identical ones every time.

Altered Guest Check

 I colored in Cream Tea Chalet from JMC. I am a huge fan of JMC's Teacup series. Each teacup has an individual look.  I added some washi tape, some words, and the colored digital onto a guest check. This is a simple project with multiple uses. For example, birthday cards to using it in a journal or a thank you for shopping card.

Fox Birthday Card

 Fox Birthday Card

Through The Craft Room Door

I grabbed a pink polka dot cardstock.
I stamped the cardstock.
I colored in the digital Sleepy Time from All Dressed Up with markers.
I took a stencil from Walmart and colored in the 3 different designs.
I found a cute lace I thought would look good right behind the fox.
I then found a birthday sentiment to add.
