In the Post…

Good morning! Happy Thursday! It’s actually been a crazy week here catching up from all the sick kids. Everyone is now on the mend but I’m finding myself glad that I try to work ahead some weeks. My good friend Kim Hughes was so kind to step in as this week’s Ways to Use it Challenge Hostess and has a fabulous challenge for you here. Thanks Kim! I do still have a card to share with you today though. I created this design just for tun a few weeks ago and realized I hadn’t gotten around to sharing it with you.The Mushroom Lane images are so fun and whimsical and if you love to color, you’ll have fun with these.

Posted Note


To put a fresh spin on these retro images, I used the new Eva patterned paper from Basic Grey as color inspiration while coloring.

Quick Tip: When using busy papers, keep your lines and design fairly clean and simple so you don’t overwhelm the design.

Have a fabulous day!
