Ellen Hutson January Pin-Sights Challenge


Playing with the January Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge. Here's the beautiful inspiration photo. As you can see, I focused on the top card, second from the left. Love that color combination.



A closeup, where you can see the silver foil hello die under the white.


Watercolored some paper with  tombow markers and die cut with the Essentials by Ellen by Julie Bed of Roses die.  Hand cut with an exacto knife and added the Essentials by Ellen by Julie Brushstroke Hello die.  Because the Bed of Roses die is large enough to cover an entire card, I made two cards with it.


Worried about our country and continuing to struggle just a bit with health issues -- you take meds for one thing and that triggers other things.  I'm fine, though, and appreciate more and more having a hobby that I still enjoy (and good health insurance!).

MOOD WHEN DONE = Pensive

  3. Love your cards - just the thing to bring a smile when someone receives it in the mail. Glad to hear that you are feeling fine. And I'm right there along side of you with regards to mood. I'm finding it hard to stay upbeat at the moment - so much to worry about. sigh

  7. Love your beautiful cards! So glad you are doing ok on the meds - I have heard that sometimes it's very difficult to get them all in balance. I guess that may be what's wrong in politics, too! I'm trying to balance the bigotry with lots of love!

  8. I'm always glad to see your posts. Your cards are uplifting. Worry is toxic. A cheerful heart is good medicine.

  9. This die probably looks better cut in half, and what a great idea! Pretty colors, nicely blended. Love the chunky "hello". I can hardly bear to watch the news anymore, but I have to stay informed. Worried, yes.
