I am so doing this!

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a fun little adventure that I'm going to play along with. My scrappy friend Kissinia Is doing a play along envelope adventure and you're invited if you would like. Here is her post:

What’s the idea?
To make the postman smile, of course. And also, to add a little touch of art to ordinary envelopes. Now to how it works:
1. You email me your postal address together with your nickname and blog address (if any).
2. I send you my very own decorated envelope with 3 empty ones in it for you to decorate. One envelope to be sent back to me, two others you send wherever you wish.
3. Please, don’t forget to decorate your envelopes! You can stop at this stage.
4. Or else, you can also put clean envelopes into your mail. In this case our project will spread even further.
5. I will accept your postal addresses until the end of July.
6. I will start sending mail immediately.
7. I suppose the end of this game – end of September 2012.
* This is absolutely non-commercial project. No expensive items to be sent, please
** I will be more than happy and truly appreciate if you will find some time to write me a little note
*** You can start exchange straight away by asking my postal address. In this case we will speed up the process
**** By using my banner and link we might attract more participants
What can you do with envelopes? Anything you want to! Doodling, painting, drawing, collage, stamping – there’s no limits!!!
So, let the game begin!
All welcome!
Doesn't this sound like fun! I am so all over this! I can't wait to receive my envs. Her envelopes are fabulous and fun looking!!!
As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

index card art!

Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share some index card art that I did for the Daisy Yellow index card a day challenge. For this challenge, you use a pack of index cards and you ♥ draw ♥ doodle ♥ write ♥ collage ♥ paint ♥ cut ♥ haiku ♥ stamp ♥ stitch ♥ on them according to the prompt that is given to you for the week. The challenge is running from June - July, so that's 61 days of playing on cards which means you'll end up with 61 cards when you're done. I don't know if I will be able to do that many myself, but they're fun and fast and I thought it would be kinda exciting to are my first three!!!!

the prompt for this one is "alphabet stamps".

the prompt for the second one is "yellow".

the third prompt is "black & white".

I'm really enjoying these, and the neat thing about this challenge is that you can come in and start at any given don't have to start with day one. I thought I'd do several of these and put them in a box together...perhaps adding to the box as I go along with whatever inspires me. If this sounds like fun to you, you can read all about it here.

As always, thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
