Blank Card, Friendship, General Cards, Nothing’s Better Than, Stampin' Up!

Nothings Better Than…..

So...how would you fill in the blank?  The stamp set I used to for today’s card is called Nothings Better Than and the stamps in the set give you four choices for an answer....Cookies, Chocolate (my choice), Cocktails and Coffee.  Personally, I think I would have added Crafting in there somewhere.  I spent a few… Continue reading Nothings Better Than…..

Snail Mail….slowly but surely

Our mail has been sooooo slow lately....it was pretty bad back in December which everyone attributed to all the holiday mailings, people buying gifts online etc, but it’s now March...yes already!) and it is still taking letters 2-3 weeks just to go across town. It really makes the words Snail Mail seem so appropriate. But… Continue reading Snail Mail….slowly but surely

Let’s Emboss – Seashells!

I had a little stamping playdate with a good friend yesterday. It was great to just sit and create together. We wanted to test out the Gilded Leafing Embellishment on a piece of cardstock that had been embossed using the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder.   That didn't go as well as we wanted, so we switched… Continue reading Let’s Emboss – Seashells!

Sharing a Card Challenge

This is going to be a quick post....I had surgery last Thursday to repair a partially torn and detached tendon in my ankle, so I haven’t been in my craft room to make something to share.   So I’m going to let my stampers have the spotlight this week. When Covid first started last spring,… Continue reading Sharing a Card Challenge

Enjoy the Moment

Way back in November I received this stamp set, Enjoy the Moment, at Stampin’ Up Online , their annual convention.  To be honest, it is not something that would probably purchase.  The images area a variety of seed pods and I recognize some of them as things that you might see in a dried flower… Continue reading Enjoy the Moment

Lots of Heart Not Just for Valentines

When you see a card with red hearts on it, I bet you automatically think of Valentines. But what if the hearts aren’t Real Red? What if they are Bermuda Bay instead? And not just plain Bermuda Bay but Buffalo Checked too? Well then you might be looking at this card. I decided to play… Continue reading Lots of Heart Not Just for Valentines

In the Pines

I've had a busy week this week....and somehow the week slid by and it's already Saturday. I don't normally post of Saturdays, so how about just relaxing and making a simple card.  This one is all about the tree. A glittery shiny tree smack dab in the middle of the card. . But that's all… Continue reading In the Pines
