Butterflies Gala – lore!

Just a little play on words in my title.  One of the new stamp sets and bundles in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog is this fun set of stamps which is called Butterfly Gala. So of course the butterflies just flew off the stamps and onto my card: If you noticed, there are 4 sets… Continue reading Butterflies Gala – lore!

Humming Along

  One of the gifts my husband and I received at Christmas was an Amazon Echo Dot, so now I can out loud and I have somebody that will listen and respond...if I call Alexa’s name that is.  So we’ve asked for the weather report and to play music.  So I get to hum along....well,… Continue reading Humming Along

Stocking Stuffers

Taking a Bird Break

Taking a break from the Christmas madness to bring you some beautiful birds. They kind of happened by accident.  A class to make Christmas gift bags and treat holders was cancelled when life got in the way and several people weren’t able to come.  It left just one....my friend Karen.  She loves birds.  Blue birds.… Continue reading Taking a Bird Break

Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

When I first saw the Santa’s Workshop Designer Series paper with the whimsical elves and Santa & Mrs. Claus....I wasn’t really enamored.  I don’t have small children anymore...my two daughters are long past the wonder of Santa Claus, Mrs. Clause and his elves.  But I purchased it anyway because it was the only “fun” looking… Continue reading Mrs. Claus Dreams of Snow!

Swapping

I had the chance to travel to Orlando November 7-11 to attend Stampin’ Up’s OnStage Live celebrating their 30th Birthday.  Part of the fun was being to be able to “swap” with other demonstrators.  Swapping is when you make a card (or 40 cards in my case) and swap them to receive cards that other… Continue reading Swapping
