Life is Sweeter


Happy Weekend to you!

I’ve got a card to share for Taylor’s weekend sketch – It’s #105. You can see the sketch here :) and lots of other pretty samples by checking out Monica Davis  • Lisa HjulbergLynn Mercurio Jami SibleyAlice Wertz.


I don’t know what it is about gumball machines that make me smile. I remember the Christmas that I hunted high and low on December 23rd for one…you’ve been there, right?  This one is just the right size for cards and easy to color…FUN.

I colored mine with Copic Markers, hit it with a Spica glitter pen and paired with October Afternoon paper. Last night before I went to bed, I covered the glass dome of the machine with Glassy Accents. So sweet.

Hope you have a great weekend. It’s my grandma’s 86th birthday on Sunday, and we’re hosting a dinner for all of our extended and church family after services on Sunday morning. It should be a wonderful day.
