Karen Whimsy - Free Images!

While doing research for a project at work today, I stumbled upon a treasure trove of images here! There are hundreds of beautiful images gleaned from my collection of old books, magazines, and postcards. They are all from material printed prior to 1923 and are in the public domain. Which means they are free to use! This site has been bookmarked for future reference! Thank you, Karen!

Summer Card Camp - Week 3

Quick card I made for week 3 of Summer Card Camp. Love this neutral color combo with a pop of red. I used lots of scraps I had in my junk bin...the cute little girl is from an old Japanese stationary set and the stamps are from the new Studio Calico-Hero Arts partnership. Happy Friday friends. I'm off to southern California to soak in some much needed sunshine. I hope you have a fabulous weekend!


...with a chance of rainbow felt balls of happiness! Made a couple of these happy clouds last week for some cute newborn babies.


Made another little stuffed elephant last week. I think I'm finally getting the hang of this pattern. Happy Tuesday! P.S. This ebook looks amazing! I think I'm gonna buy it for my niece and nephew. P.S.S. Madewell finally has a store in San Francisco...yippee!!

Summer Card Camp - Week 2

A card and a fun little bunting banner for Jennifer and Kristina's Summer Card Camp this week! I figure I had to work on two projects to make up for missing week one. Was too busy with work...you know how it goes. It's nice to have an excuse to use my stamps and make some cards because as a designer for Hero Arts, often times I finish the stamp designs and then rarely get a chance to use them. So when Jennifer asked if I wanted to join the class, I immediately said yes! Thanks Jennifer! All stamps by Hero Arts (illustrated by me!)
