Best Wishes, Birthday, Blank Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello Cupcake

It was my oldest daughter’s birthday this past Wednesday....I can’t tell you how old she is because a Mom never tells her daughter’s age on any kind of social media...unless that Mom wants to see an exasperated look on her daughter’s face along with a rolling of the eyes.  So in honor of her birthday,… Continue reading Hello Cupcake

Butterflies Gala – lore!

Just a little play on words in my title.  One of the new stamp sets and bundles in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog is this fun set of stamps which is called Butterfly Gala. So of course the butterflies just flew off the stamps and onto my card: If you noticed, there are 4 sets… Continue reading Butterflies Gala – lore!

Love, Valentine’s Day

Looking “Love”-ly

The Holidays are over, a new year has started and if you’ve been in a store lately.....any type of store....grocery, craft store, clothing store, they are busy stocking the shelve’s with anything that has to do with Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and even Easter....which is still 3 months away.  I was given a challenge… Continue reading Looking “Love”-ly

Pretty in Pink

It was a dreary overcast day when I was playing around  and practicing my watercoloring....and using my Aqua Painter, so I decided to make something bright and cheery.  So put your sunglasses on and gaze at my pink creation....shades of Lovely Lipstick and Mango Melody to be exact. This stamp set I used is called… Continue reading Pretty in Pink

  One of the gifts my husband and I received at Christmas was an Amazon Echo Dot, so now I can out loud and I have somebody that will listen and respond...if I call Alexa’s name that is.  So we’ve asked for the weather report and to play music.  So I get to hum along....well,… Continue reading Humming Along

Here is… Continue reading Country Christmas

My List is Long

I’ve got a list a mile long of things I need to do, cards I want to make, blog posts I need to write.  Sometimes it seems like the more I cross off my list, the more things get added.  Santa’s list is always long and he always seems to be able to deliver all… Continue reading My List is Long

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Yes, I still have Christmas carols on my mind....mainly because I have lots of Santa’s and Mrs. Claus and elves and North Pole signs and presents cluttering up my desk.  I’ve been busy stamping and coloring and die cutting.  It’s how I get my inspiration for the cards I’m going to make.  I make a… Continue reading Santa Claus is Coming to Town

It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

Earlier this week I posted about my simple wreath card and the Wishing You Well Stamp set.  You can see that post HERE.  But I still wasn’t done making cards with this stamp set. I was using it for a card class, so I was looking at all the different possibilities....read that “seasons” to use… Continue reading It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not
