Easy Peasy – Painted Poppies

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. I used the scrolly vine from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set and instead of adding flowers, I choose hearts from… Continue reading Thoughtful Blooms Valentine

Heartfelt Love You Lots Valentine

Have you made your Valentines yet?  Notice I didn’t say -  have you gone to your local card store (which shall remain nameless) and shelled out $7-$8 for a card.  When I was much younger, we always made our own valentines to give to friends.  And I see no reason to change that now.  So,… Continue reading Heartfelt Love You Lots Valentine
