Seashells by the Seashore…..

Who remembers the tongue twister...She sells seashells by the seashore?  Can you say it three times fast?  Me neither.  Who likes to collect seashells?  Me!  My happy place is the beach.  I love to sit and watch the waves and I also love to walk the beach and look for shells.  I have a very… Continue reading Seashells by the Seashore…..

Fine Art Floral Fun Fold

This is actually a re-make of a card that I made in 2019 when I was visiting my daughter in Seoul, South Korea.  I had packed a few stamping supplies so I could stamp on the long 17 hour flight, I didn’t end up doing that....those seat trays are tiny!  But I did make quite… Continue reading Fine Art Floral Fun Fold

Pierced Blooms Twisted Easel Card

As I write this I am sitting in my craft room and listening to hits from the 60’s and what should come up but Chubby Checker’s “The Twist”.  You can listen to it here: Chubby Checker’s The Twist.  I am taking it as good omen that I just happened to be writing my this post… Continue reading Pierced Blooms Twisted Easel Card

Snail Mail….slowly but surely

Our mail has been sooooo slow lately....it was pretty bad back in December which everyone attributed to all the holiday mailings, people buying gifts online etc, but it’s now March...yes already!) and it is still taking letters 2-3 weeks just to go across town. It really makes the words Snail Mail seem so appropriate. But… Continue reading Snail Mail….slowly but surely

6” x 6” One Sheet Wonder with Berry Blessings

What is it about trying to get as many cards as possible out of a single piece of Designer Series Paper?  Is it the challenge of “Can I do it?” Is it because it is a test of our creativity?  Is it because we want to get as much as we can for our money?… Continue reading 6” x 6” One Sheet Wonder with Berry Blessings

Enjoy the Moment

Way back in November I received this stamp set, Enjoy the Moment, at Stampin’ Up Online , their annual convention.  To be honest, it is not something that would probably purchase.  The images area a variety of seed pods and I recognize some of them as things that you might see in a dried flower… Continue reading Enjoy the Moment

Lots of Heart Not Just for Valentines

When you see a card with red hearts on it, I bet you automatically think of Valentines. But what if the hearts aren’t Real Red? What if they are Bermuda Bay instead? And not just plain Bermuda Bay but Buffalo Checked too? Well then you might be looking at this card. I decided to play… Continue reading Lots of Heart Not Just for Valentines
