Fridays are such a great day....it’s the end of the week and everyone is looking forward to the week-end. I decided to make Fridays even better! It’s now Fun Fold Friday! For the next few weeks I’m going to share a new way to either fold your card....or add a special element to your card!… Continue reading Fun Fold Friday – Origami Shadowbox

This year the five new 2019-2021 In-Colors are: Rococo Rose, Terracotta Tile, Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Purple Posy. Rococo Rose Terracotta Tile Pretty Peacock Seaside Spray Purple… Continue reading New In-Colors
This post is a little different than most and it doesn’t feature any cards!! Three weeks ago I returned from an almost month long trip to Seoul, South Korea. My husband was going for work and I went because one of our daughters has been living there for the past 6 years and it was… Continue reading Traveling with Stampin’ Up Supplies
In my earlier post this week, Ride With The Windows Open! I mentioned that I should have made my 3-D red truck the same color as the truck on my card....which was blue. And I thought about doing that....but then I decided to make another card instead, so I broke out the Real Red Stampin’ Blends… Continue reading Ride with Me – Little Red Truck
Ride with the windows open.....this is I rarely do! I like my air conditioning especially in the summer heat, but there are plenty of people who do all the time....So I guess this card is for them. The new RIDE WITH ME STAMP SET is a little bit of fun and perfect for a birthday card for… Continue reading Ride With The Windows Open!
This is my last post for my Red, White and Blue week! The Fourth of July is over but the the memories remain....A Movie Date with my husband, London Broil on the grill, watching the Boston Pops and the beauty of fireworks bursting in the air choreographed to Patriotic Music from New York City. Speaking… Continue reading A Salute to the Red, White & Blue!
My husband loves lighthouses....and to tell the truth, so do I. If we are traveling and there is a lighthouse nearby, chances are we will stop and visit, climb up to the top and survey the scenery. Besides cardmaking, I also love to research my family’s genealogy. I had a relative who was a Head… Continue reading Patriotic Lighthouse
As promised earlier, this first week of July is Red, White & Blue week! It’s fitting since the Fourth of July is rapidly coming up, so what better time to have a few Patriotic looking cards? I’m getting ready later this month for a special class featuring the New Daisy Lane Suite (details below), so… Continue reading Patriotic Daisies
I have been having so much fun with the new OVER THE MOON Stamp set....just “Udderly” too much fun! If one cow on a card is fun....then a bunch is simply “Moovalous” right? Especially when you pile them on top of each other. This is not my original idea, but I’ve seen several versions and not… Continue reading Cow’s It Going??
I was looking for something different to do with my limited stamp sets, so I decided that I needed to try and do some different types of folding my cards. So instead of the traditional side or top fold, I branched out a little and tried something new. Laying down flat it just looks like… Continue reading Folding Fun With Free as a Bird
