Turtle Friends…..

So.....if you have been reading my blog you might have noticed that my posts lately have been rather sporadic....or just plain missing.   There is a major change in my life....a good one....but it’s meant that I’ve had a little....sometimes a lot....less time to get things done.  Important things to me that help keep my… Continue reading Turtle Friends…..

Pretty Perennial Triangle Pocket Fun Fold Card

I have finally gotten back to playing with paper...which for me is making cards.  I saw this front triangle pocket card design and thought I’d give it a try.  It was much easier than I thought and I love that it makes the card look like an envelope.  And I think the design is a… Continue reading Pretty Perennial Triangle Pocket Fun Fold Card

There is nothing like having everything all nice and neat.  Everything in it’s place...neat and tidy.  Well, let me just tell you that it’s not happening right now in my little craft corner of the world.  My desk is littered with bits and pieces of the card I’m sharing with you now, plus I have… Continue reading All Squared Away….It’s in Progress.

6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder – Pansy Petals

I returned from my vacation on Tuesday....and one of the first things i did was go in my craft rom to figure out what I was going to do for my Facebook Live that was scheduled for later in the evening.  I had 4 hours to think of something...well less if I wanted to actually… Continue reading 6 x 6 One Sheet Wonder – Pansy Petals

Friends are Like Seashells…..

I am still on vacation at the beach....my happy place.  As much as I’d like to, I’m not walking on the beach (still in re-hab from ankle surgery), I would usually be collecting shells....I have them all over my house in glass jars from trips to Myrtle Beach, Key West, Clearwater Beach, and even from… Continue reading Friends are Like Seashells…..

Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

I love pansies....the vibrant colors, soft petals...they are beautiful to use in landscaping....unless you have rogue bunnies in your yard!  A few years ago I bought about 80 pansy plants at a local high school fundraiser to fill a rather large flower bed in front of my house.  I planted them one afternoon.  They looked… Continue reading Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card

Hand Penned Angle Front Z Fold

Let’s Be Insprired by……Inspiring Iris

It’s easy to overlook stamp sets in the Annual Catalog....especially when a smaller Mini Catalog come out a month of two after the Annual Catalog launch with even more fun stamp sets to play with and if it's a set that carried over from a previous year, sometimes they don't get a second look. Today… Continue reading Let’s Be Insprired by……Inspiring Iris
