Music From The Heart

I don’t know why it has taken me so long to use the Music From The Heart Stamp Set It’s only been in the catalog a few short months and I thought for sure it would be carried over into the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, so I procrastinated....but I was wrong!  It will be retiring on… Continue reading Music From The Heart

Sailing Home – Early Father’s Day

Mother's Day was a few weeks ago and Father's Day is fast approaching and will be here before you know it.  I made this card about two weeks ago and it would be perfect for a Father's Day Card.  My Father passed away a little over 9 years ago, but I know he would have… Continue reading Sailing Home – Early Father’s Day

Sailing Home Birthday

Today is my husband’s birthday.  And it’s a big one too!  I wanted to have a party for him (COVID-19 kind of ruined that).  Not so much to celebrate but to just kind of remind him how old he is....65!  Medicare age!  Almost retirement age.  But he doesn’t look it.  He’s just as handsome now… Continue reading Sailing Home Birthday
