Simple Stamping with Thoughtful Blooms (Almost)

S.I.P.  No, it does not stand for Still In Pajamas.  It stands for Stamps, Ink, Paper.  Nothing else on your card....no ribbon, no bling, no embossing, just pure and simple stamping.  If you want to make cards in a hurry, S.I.P. is the way to go.  But that doesn’t mean that your cards have to… Continue reading Simple Stamping with Thoughtful Blooms (Almost)

Under My Umbrella….on a Rainy Monday Night

As long as I can remember, my Mom has sung with Sweet Adelines....and at 90 years of age, she is still up on the risers singing away as the oldest member of the Scottsdale Chorus chapter.  Early on, my Dad in his infinite wisdom decided that she needed something to help her practice, so in… Continue reading Under My Umbrella….on a Rainy Monday Night

Fun Friday with Bonanza Buddies

Welcome to Fun Friday!  When I am deciding on what stamp sets to purchase, I like to look for possibilities...and by that I mean...how versatile is this set of stamps?  Can I use it for something else?  Will the designs on the stamp set go with other sentiments?
