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!
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

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!

Today I have another card with a little bit of happy shine to help get you over the hump and spur you on toward the end of the week. My “hump” is actually a rainbow… The stamp set I used is… Continue reading Shiny and Bright Rainbow of Happiness

I've seen them on Pinterest, other friends have made them and I have made a few myself. You can… Continue reading Mini Slim Line Card & Envelope
Do you know someone who could use a little mid-week pick me up? Maybe someone who is under the weather or just having a tough week? This card would fit the bill! I used one of the new Rainbow of Happiness Bundle that is in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog to stamp and die… Continue reading Rainbow of Happiness
What is more fun that a box of candy conversation hearts? Not much especially if you are in need of a quick and easy treat to have ready to hand out on Valentine’s Day. First you’ll need to run to the store to purchase the candy hearts and then you can get started on making… Continue reading Sweet Little Boxes for Valentine’s Day
Today I have something a little different to share with you. It’s a fun way to make a set of four cards using a patchwork of Designer Series Papers. It’s actually a very simple technique. You will need four pieces of Designer Series Paper, each a different pattern, and each cut 4” x 5 1/4”.… Continue reading Patchwork Hand-Penned Cards
