New Stuff and One-Layer Simplicity

First off, I'd like to remind you to play along with the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge this month! The theme is Road Trip! Just make a card that is either destination-based (your dream spot for travel!) or journey-based (the transportation used to get there). I've made a couple of cards that I'll share as soon as I get a chance to photograph them!

Next, I'll share the new product I used on today's card.

Aren't all those colors GORGEOUS!!! Almost too pretty to use!!!


And now for the card.

This card sat on my desk for the longest time, just in ink-and-paper form. It was missing something. When my shipment of Doodlebug Enamel Dots arrived, I knew I'd want to try one out on this card...and I like it! These aren't as thick as I thought they'd be, which is good, although I don't know why my photo editing software made the dot look red on my screen when it's in fact hot pink, just a bit darker than the butterfly ink. I hope it looks good on your screen!

Anywho, these dots are going to be so much fun to play with in the coming weeks!

Thanks for all the good wishes for Daisy. She's doing better today.

Finally, we got 7 more cards for Jonah today, including two from Canada and one from Australia! Thanks so much. I'll be adding the new senders' names to my Jonah Cards Page here shortly so you can see if your card has arrived yet.

  1. I'm happy Daisy is getting better, Susan. Your bright and cheerful color combo makes for a happy card. Love the dot! Your purchase makes me smile :)

  2. Those colorful dots are fabulous! And the perfect finishing touch for your cheerful butterfly card!

  3. What a happy card! Where were you lucky enough to find the 'sprinkles'? Can't find them in Alaska!

    1. I ordered them from Amazon with a gift card from a stamping friend!They actually came from two separate suppliers.

  4. I was gifted some purple enamel dots...they look so luscious on my stamp table that I drool over them but I haven't used one yet...the package then would be off balance...and well that just wouldn't be good...maybe soon I will use two!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
