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

Happy Labor Day! I know you’ve heard me say that some cards I show you are “quick and easy” or “easier than you think”, but I think this one takes the cake for being quick and easy.  And there is really not "labor" involved in making this card, I used the Beauty of the Earth… Continue reading Beauty of the Earth in 5 Minutes or less

A Joyful Life

A Joyful life is something I strive for.  I do not always achieve it every day, but I am working on it.  In fact it was my New Year’s resolution.  You can read about that here. A Joyful Life also just also happens to be the name of the stamp set that I used to make… Continue reading A Joyful Life

Sweet As A Peach Fun Fold Pocket Card

I haven't had much time lately to sit down at my desk and make a mess.  For anyone who is a crafter of any kind....that means being in your happy place and creating cards, treat holders, samplers.....lots of papercrafting!  And like many of you,  I have a plastic bin full of cards that are not… Continue reading Sweet As A Peach Fun Fold Pocket 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

You might have noticed that I haven’t been posting in my blog as much lately….so thanks for hanging in there with me….if you are still reading that is!  I spent the last 5 weeks in Phoenix, Arizona helping my mother sort and purge all of her belongings, sell her house and car in preparing to… Continue reading Penguin Place Week – Card #1

Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

Quick and easy cards…who likes them?  I do!  There is something to be said for having one BIG stamp that covers the entire card front.  Stamp once, do a bit of coloring, add a little embossing and put it all together.  This is the result.  I made this card for a special friend who lost… Continue reading Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card
