If At First You Don’t Succeed…..

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, again.  And that’s what I’m going to do....try again with the Varied Vases Stamp Set and the three columns.  I found a different  card layout...still had three columns, but also a another box across the bottom...so a little different than the first one.  Maybe this would be… Continue reading If At First You Don’t Succeed…..

Mixing The Old With The New

While I would love to just pretend I won the lottery so I could buy all the new stamps and papers and ribbons and markers and every new color of cardstock in the 2018-2019 Stampin’ Up! catalog, let’s just come to grips with reality and say “it ain’t gonna happen”.  But...I did purchase a few… Continue reading Mixing The Old With The New

I Need Sunglasses

Every year when the new catalog comes out in June Stampin’ Up! introduces 5 new colors that will be part of their color palette....but only for two years.  The 2018-2020 colors this year are vibrant and bright and the one called Pineapple Punch is so sunny, I think I might need to wear sunglasses when… Continue reading I Need Sunglasses

My Cards are Bloomin’!

I am not a gardener. I kill plants all the time.  It’s a bad habit I just can’t seem to break. My wonderful mother-in-law could make anything grow...even my dead plants.  She would give me plants, I would take them home and when they were about to take their last flowery breath, I would give… Continue reading My Cards are Bloomin’!

Father’s Day, Friendship, Stampin' Up!

Happy Father’s Day!

Today is Father’s Day and that calls for a manly card....no flowers, no frills, no ribbons and bows or lacy doilies.  So what stamp set did I choose for my manly card?  Bubble Over.  Hmmm.....doesn’t sound too manly, but don’t think soap bubbles....think alcoholic beverage bubbles...a beer! Let’s take a look at what this stamp set looks… Continue reading Happy Father’s Day!

Ahoy! Let Love Be Your Anchor

This past Saturday, June 9, 2018 my daughter’s best friend...they have known each other since kindergarten (30+ years ago)...was married in a ceremony on the beach.  It was a beautiful ceremony for a gorgeous bride and her new husband.  Since their wedding was on the beach...they had a beach-y theme too....Let Love Be Your Anchor.… Continue reading Ahoy!

It’s A Beautiful Day!

Every time I see this sentiment It’s a beautiful day from the Love What You Do stamp set I’m reminded of the song from the television show, Mr. Rogers.  My daughters loved to watch this show and would often sing along: It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood A beautiful day for a neighbor Could… Continue reading It’s A Beautiful Day!

It’s a Shimmery Day!

One of the things I love about some of the new designer series papers that Stampin' Up just released besides the pretty colors is that it shimmers!  Hold it up to the light and wiggle it back and forth and you can see that some of the flowers have a little shine to them so… Continue reading It’s a Shimmery Day!
