Little Ladybug “Notes” – Happy Birthday!

A few weeks ago a friend asked me to help her make a card that she had seen on Pinterest....and I was happy to do it because I got to play with two new stamps sets that I had been wanting to use:  Little Ladybug and Music from the Heart.  These are the two stamp… Continue reading Little Ladybug “Notes” – Happy Birthday!

Easy Peasy - Quick and Easy.  That’s my motto this week as I get projects ready for a one day retreat on Saturday.  I spent 3 hours cutting pieces for 16 cards....with each card having 22 pieces....oh my!  But it will be a ‘Masterpiece”.  That’s a hint for the theme of the card which I’ll… Continue reading Easy Peasy – Painted Poppies

Thoughtful Blooms Valentine

Who says hearts can’t grow on vines?  Not me!  I did a little thinking outside the box last week and took a card I saw with flowers and turned it into a Valentine’s Day card.
