Counting Sheep Side Step Card

I am not a good sleeper….it’s not that I have to count sheep at night to go to sleep, I actually fall asleep fairly quickly, less than 5 minutes.  My problem is that no matter what time I go to sleep, I’m only good for about 6 hours.  So I’m up late at night because… Continue reading Counting Sheep Side Step Card

You would think that with an entire week that I could make more than 2 cards.  Nope, not this week.  I’m still playing catch-up after being away from home for almost 6 weeks with no craft supplies.  And now that I have an entire room-ful?  And new ones to boot?  I’m so overwhelmed with having… Continue reading Penguin Week – Card #2

Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

Quick and easy cards…who likes them?  I do!  There is something to be said for having one BIG stamp that covers the entire card front.  Stamp once, do a bit of coloring, add a little embossing and put it all together.  This is the result.  I made this card for a special friend who lost… Continue reading Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

What’s Cookin’? – Dutch Door Fun Fold

My Mom came for an extended visit in May and after two weeks with us, she decided that she was ready to make the move from Arizona to Virginia and live with my husband and me.  I think it was the homecooked food that persuaded her!  She is always asking either "What's for dinner? or… Continue reading What’s Cookin’? – Dutch Door Fun Fold

In the Wild – Part Two

I was fussy cutting again….and using the In the Wild Designer Series paper again too! This time I used a different tiger, turned my card the other direction and chose different patterns of the paper to use.
