Whisper If you’ve been following my blog for the past few days, you’ve seen the cards that I have been making with the March Paper Pumpkin Kit, No Matter the Weather. First I made the note cards (5” x 3 1/2” cards) following the directions in the Paper Pumpkin kit. And I stepped it up a… Continue reading From Envelopes to Cards – Paper Pumpkin
Happy Valentine’s Day! In my blog post on Monday, I used a piece of leftover cardstock that I had used the Buffalo Check Stamp Set on....stamping in Real Red Ink. You can see that post here: Meant to Be on Mixed Up Monday. Now I am obsessed with red, black and white. So I still had… Continue reading Buffalo Checked Valentine
I was cleaning out a pile of scraps on my desk and came across a few sample sheets of the Buffalo Check Stamp Set that had been done in red for the card in this blog post Cow’s it Going…..again. So I decided to use one to make a more “manly” Valentine. The background looks a… Continue reading Meant to Be on Mixed Up Monday
Have you made your Valentines yet? Notice I didn’t say - have you gone to your local card store (which shall remain nameless) and shelled out $7-$8 for a card. When I was much younger, we always made our own valentines to give to friends. And I see no reason to change that now. So,… Continue reading Heartfelt Love You Lots Valentine

Time has flown by....but… Continue reading Dressed to Impress Fun Fold
It’s another Fun Fold Friday.....or is it??? Today’s card looks like it has a fun fold....but it’s actually just a Fake Fold (or also called by it’s real name - The Front Pocket Card). There is no special fold, just a playing tricks with your eyes kind of fake fold. Here it is: Doesn’t… Continue reading Fun Fold Friday – The Fake Fold!
I’m currently visiting my daughter in South Korea and brought limited supplies with me. I brought this CRAFT AND CARRY STAMPERATUS Bag on the plane....and put more in my suitcase. It’s only about 9” x 9” square, but I did manage to fit several stamp sets, ink pads, paper, ribbon, a few embellishments and....hmmm that might… Continue reading Show Me Some Cow Love
My mother-in-law, who passed away in 2015 from Alzheimer’s Disease, loved flowers. She could make anything grow, even flowers and plants that she would give to me and I would seemingly kill, she would bring them back to life. She had a beautiful yard full of flowers...that included a HUGE magnolia tree. June 6th… Continue reading Good Morning Magnolia!
