I love... Tickled Pink digi images!
...Petaloo flowers! tear paper.
...corrugated cardboard.
...chalking edges.
...stitching - especially over text at the moment.
...these colours. (I was inspired by the colours of my Pinterest boards!)
...making cards with quirky sentiments.
...tags and shaped journaling spots.
...Baker's twine!

Here's the result of those faves:
