Yes YOU

Ever have a sentiment that just makes you laugh?
This is one of those...
"You're My Person"
Not sure why I think that's so cute...but I do.

I am sharing this little critter on the Unity Stamp Co. Blog
because it's Friends with Flair Day.
I hope you like my rosy colored version of this cute, nerdy little fox.
The card base is a 4X4" craft piece that was a gift in 
my last order along with some funky buttons that I can't wait to use. 

Happy Friday!
~Donna K


The papers are My Mind's Eye.
The ink is Copic and Memento
The gloss on the glasses and hearts is Plastique
Die is Spellbinders
Gems are Recollections

Embossing Paste and Stencils {SS}


 Hello friends!
I have two posts going on today...woo woo!
That's what I call a Terrific Tuesday!!

LOVING the technique challenge on the Sweet Stamps Challenge Blog
 this week, how about YOU?!
The theme there is:
Use Stencils and Embossing Paste
You can get a very dramatic textured effect with a very small amount of paste added to any project.
I used Dylusions Calyspo Teal spray on top of the wet paste for this look.
This is the first time I've used this particular ink and I love it!
Thanks for stopping by today!
God Bless!

Memento Tuxedo Black

Box of Cards

 What gift do you give someone who loves to write..
To actually "write" letters and notes?
I gave her a little box.
With some pretty note cards inside.
That aren't too thick to save on postage.
Along with a book of stamps, some red velvet cupcakes 
and a big HUG!
Hand made gifts are best, don't you think?!
Thanks for letting me share.

Every Day

A little reminder....
"there is good in every day"
My Friends with Flair project for today.
This is definitely NOT my favorite project...
but I tried to keep this positive sentiment in mind as I share it. 


Have a great day, Friends!
~Donna K

Remember that sweet little "Need a Squeeze" stamp I was giving away last week?

Chosen by random drawing:

I love your card and design! The papers and patterns all look fab together and the owl looks great on the print paper! Your turquoise bow is lovely too. I would love to win this stamp, it would make a perfect lunch note for my daughter. ��

All you need is LOVE {FwF}

Happy Friday!
It is a HAPPY day for me because I'm finally feeling better. 
This girl was down and OUT with the flu for nearly two weeks.
So, needless to say I was happy to get some time in my space to make a few cards.
I've been missing the FwF crew too!
Here is my humble entry...
I adore this sentiment and
Whooty {by Angie Blom} is a cutie, dontcha think?!
The paper is My Mind's Eye and I just used some COPIC pen to color 
in a few areas of this sweet owl.

And...because Unity is so generous...
always sharing and giving...
I wanted to pay forward an extra stamp that got shipped 
to me in error when I was GIU last year.  

SO...if you don't already have this one and want to get it from me...
for FREE 
Just drop me a note when you comment.
{due to shipping costs only USA addresses please}
I'll let you know next week who the lucky duck is!
Ok...now go see the rest of the Friends with Flair entries!!

Today

TODAY is my WORD for 2015.
In place of resolutions for 2015 I decided to choose a word.

Because we can't change yesterday...
and tomorrow is not promised.
TODAY is the day I will focus on.

Doing more positive things TODAY.
Taking better care of myself TODAY.
Creating more TODAY...you get the idea, right?


So TODAY..I'm working on a new header for my blog. 
It's a bit of a new "title" and a little something I'd like to share with you.

@ Studio 307 is where I create
It's my teeny space in the corner of our home.
I love it there and wanted to incorporate it into my blog title.

I've updated my  Facebook page and you will see that change soon as well. 

To "celebrate" my change up...
I'd love to share something with my blog/Facebook friends.


All you have to do is...
1. Leave me a comment and let me know if you have a "Word" for 2015.
2. Then pop over to my Facebook page and do the same.
3. Share with your friends...I'm always happy to see new faces.

I'd love to send you this sweet little red/pink package of goodies as a thank you for your continued support and encouragement over the years.

You do not have to be a "follower" or "like" my page...but I'd love it if you did.

I will draw the winner on February 1st!
Thanks for letting me share and be part of your day.

Enjoy the Moment {SS}


Tuesday is my day to share on the Sweet Stamps Challenge Blog.

Enjoy the Moment is a sentiment that goes with any occasion and 
I really love the simplicity of this card.
Using the Buckled art stencil I created a lovely background paper to mount my
oval cut sentiment and foliage image....both are from Sweet Stamps.
I wanted a bit more texture so I added pearls and a few droplets of Glastique and finished
off my card with a sweet sheer bow.
Thank you for stopping by today and don't forget our weekly challenge that started on Monday!

The theme is Something New
....and you have all week to play along.
