am still on vacation and still looking for that beautiful sunset. We are staying on the east (Caribbean) side of Ambergris Caye, Belize, so to see the sunset necessitates a dinner trip to a restaurant on the ”lagoon” side. Although the days have been beautiful, it’s been cloudy and hazy at night, so the best… Continue reading A Paradise Palms Sunset

Father’s Day Card with He’s The Man
It's June! And in a few short weeks it will be Father's Day. Time to celebrate the special men in your life. And time to make a few masculine cards. My husband is not a cook....at least not inside the house, but he does do a decent job cooking outside. He's great with London Broil,… Continue reading Father’s Day Card with He’s The Man
Hello Ladybug Dutch Fold Card
I am not sure what took me so long to use the Hello Ladybug stamp set, but fortunately even though it is in the January-June Mini catalog which retires June 30th, this stamp set carried over into the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog! It’s such a fun set and even more fun when you use it… Continue reading Hello Ladybug Dutch Fold Card

Bottled Happiness – More Flowers!
This is my last post this week using the Bottled Happiness Stamp Set and the coordinating Vintage Bottle Punch. In my last post I told you about my flowers that I haven't killed yet that are in my flower beds. (Yes, I have two black thumbs!). And I finally got smart and started planting perennials… Continue reading Bottled Happiness – More Flowers!
Bottled Happiness – Filled with Flowers
I am not usually a real flower lover - at least not in real life unless they are outdoors and blooming in my flowerbeds making my yard look pretty. I’ve found a few that I haven’t killed and that keep coming back without me paying them any attention. I don’t cut and bring the blooms… Continue reading Bottled Happiness – Filled with Flowers

Awash in Beauty – How to use the Designer Series Paper
I love getting new Designer Series Paper. New Designs sometimes means finding new ways to use the paper or creating a new sketch for a card design, especially when it's paper like this. The same design is on both the top and bottom edges. You could just cut it horizontally across the middle, and do… Continue reading Awash in Beauty – How to use the Designer Series Paper
Cup of Tea Card & Treat!
I meant to get this out earlier in time for Mother's Day as I thought it would make a great card with a little something extra, but our internet was out for several days. Our neighbors put in a new deck and in digging a hole cut their cable/internet line. When they had someone come… Continue reading Cup of Tea Card & Treat!
