Layered Thanksgiving Card

I’m on a roll with these Thanksgiving cards.  There is still time for you to make a few of these cards and get them in to mail.  Today’s card is very similar to yesterday’s post….but I switched up the cardstock colors, the embossing folder and instead of stamping a leaf, I die cut one instead.… Continue reading Layered Thanksgiving Card

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

Penguin Week – Card #2

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
