5MQ. OK, so I call it a 5MQ (5 minute quick-ee) NOT because I can design it in 5 minutes, but because it can be duplicated in 5–not counting the drying time of the watercolor part.  Savvy?

This card packs a whollop for me… …because I adore simplicity, minimalism, watercolor (albeit kind of cheating to use the Distress Stains in this way, I mean, seriously… could anything BE more effortless than these stripes??? *insert Chandler Bing voice*)…

And, Spidey… swingin’ from the twine?  I know, right?  EEP!!!

Thanks for stopping by!





  1. Why the non slip stuff under your ink pad. I’m certain it is genius, but I need to know why, so I can justify my purchase of non slip stuff. :)

    • LOL! Sometimes, instead of inking stamps from overhead, I tap them against the ink pad, but the ink pad slips around on my work surface, so I put a piece of that drawer liner stuff underneath it from scootching around on me. :)
