Ski Tag

BoBunny comes out with some of the best winter paper collections. I'm always eager to see their new designs, and Powder Mountain didn't disappoint.

 For this tag I used different papers in the Powder Mountain line, including fussy cutting the ski's out of one of the patterns. Adding a Julie Nutting Paper Doll and this is a great winter tag!

Mermaid Cards

I decided in 2016 that I would use whatever crafty skills I could muster to try and perform some Random Acts of Kindness (RAK). My first efforts were to create a set of mermaid cards for a friend who is a big fan of mermaids.

This was also my first attempt at watercolors, so I wasn't sure how these would turn out. In the end I thought they turned out really well and the recipient seemed very pleased with them!
