MMMALTEREDCARDPLAY - Mixed Media Morsels Altered Card Play

We have a Theme, Technique, Add-Ons, and extra credit for our play card.


The theme is Garden

I used a free image I found on Pinterest and colored the lemon tree in.

For the technique, use watercolors

I used Zig watercolor pens to color the lemon tree.

For the add-ons

Add a security envelope and add a tag.

I stamp the little butterfly on the security envelope and cut it out. 

For the extra credit

add a fruit or vegetable. I used the Lemon tree.


I was inspired by a picture from Portugal that I took with the lovely tiles. I create the background on my computer and color the "tiles" with Distress Ink.

Some of my embellishments are cutouts from the 49 and Market - Cottage Life collection.


I will post my video later when I feel better!

Have a great week and thank you for watching!

Flower girl and Maid of Honor gift boxes #212

Hi everyone,

The new Challenge at Scrapping4funChallenges is live. The theme is Anything Goes.
My daughter is getting married on the 11th of June and I created a lot of wedding decor. Here are two boxes that I created for the Maid of Honor and the flower girl. My daughter will place some nice gifts in the boxes. I also have two boxes for the Bridesmaids, I will post them in another post.  

Normally I create my own boxes from scratch but I was so busy and then I got sick (you know with what)! At this moment I had an infected right ear and the nerve in my ear got damaged. I am on high cortisone and will be going for a small Operation on the 9th of May 2022. I really hope my ear will be ok because we are flying to South Africa on the 4th of June for the wedding.

Here are the gift boxes.
