Ride With The Windows Open!

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!

Cow’s It Going??

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??

Folding Fun With Free as a Bird

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

Show Me Some Cow Love

I’m currently visiting my daughter in South Korea and brought limited supplies with me.  I brought this CRAFT AND CARRY STAMPERATUS Bag on the plane....and put more in my suitcase.  It’s only about 9” x 9” square, but I did manage to fit several stamp sets, ink pads, paper, ribbon, a few embellishments and....hmmm that might… Continue reading Show Me Some Cow Love

Sing a Song – Free as a Bird

I love to sing.  I’ve been singing in some kind of musical group most of my life, from elementary school to high school choruses, church choirs, community choirs and even a Christmas Caroling group where I dressed in Victorian costume.  I think I got my musical gifts from my mother.  She’s been a Sweet Adeline… Continue reading Sing a Song – Free as a Bird

I’m Over the Moon About These Cows!

I love fun cards.  They just seem so much more cheerful to put into the mail.  And these cows in the OVER THE MOON stamp set, fit the bill. I have to give credit to Corinne Oosterhoff, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Denmark.  She shared a card on a Facebook page for Stampin’ Up Demonstrators and… Continue reading I’m Over the Moon About These Cows!

Good Morning Magnolia!

My mother-in-law, who passed away in 2015 from Alzheimer’s Disease, loved flowers.  She could make anything grow, even flowers and plants that she would give to me and I would seemingly kill, she would bring them back to life.  She had a beautiful yard full of flowers...that included a HUGE magnolia tree.   June 6th… Continue reading Good Morning Magnolia!
