Sailing Home – Early Father’s Day

Mother's Day was a few weeks ago and Father's Day is fast approaching and will be here before you know it.  I made this card about two weeks ago and it would be perfect for a Father's Day Card.  My Father passed away a little over 9 years ago, but I know he would have… Continue reading Sailing Home – Early Father’s Day

Peaceful Poppies – Flying by the Seat of Your Pants

This post is going to be a little different.  I usually show you a card and then explain a little about how I made it and give you a list of supplies.  But today is now officially Wacky Wednesday and I’m going to go backwards so you’ll be surprised at the end! I’m sure there… Continue reading Peaceful Poppies – Flying by the Seat of Your Pants

Sailing Home Birthday

Today is my husband’s birthday.  And it’s a big one too!  I wanted to have a party for him (COVID-19 kind of ruined that).  Not so much to celebrate but to just kind of remind him how old he is....65!  Medicare age!  Almost retirement age.  But he doesn’t look it.  He’s just as handsome now… Continue reading Sailing Home Birthday

Follow Your Heart – Parisian Beauty

When I first saw the Parisian Beauty Stamp Set, the Eiffel Tower stamp was what made me want to purchase it.   My husband & I, and our youngest daughter, took a trip to Europe this past December.  On the agenda was a few days in Paris and we had booked tickets to go up to… Continue reading Follow Your Heart – Parisian Beauty

Making the Most of Your Scraps

If you don’t know me or haven’t been to my little crafting space in my house is that I am a paper hoarder....but a neat one.  I don’t have paper scraps from my card projects all over my house, they are neatly contained and filed by color.  It’s like looking at a rainbow everyday. Before… Continue reading Making the Most of Your Scraps

Ahhhh….Tropical Oasis

All this week, I’m sharing cards using the Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper.  It’s a fun blend of tropical flowers, flamingo’s and even a little “blast from the past” old station wagons that we called “woodies” for the wooden panels on the side. Here’s a closer look.... Isn’t that fun?  I feel like I should… Continue reading Ahhhh….Tropical Oasis
