It's so good to be back stamping! I had to take a little break as my mother (who lives with my husband and I) had a medical emergency that involved surgery for a pacemaker, a short hospital stay and is now doing well in rehab. I shared this fun card on my Therapy Thursday Facebook… Continue reading Lighthouse Point Faux Step Card

When you are in a creative slump, the best thing to do is to get a little inspiration for designing your card. And the first thing I turn to is looking for a card sketch. Card sketches are general layouts of elements for a card. In this case, I turned to Freshly Made Sketches. Each… Continue reading Hippest Hippo Card Challenge
When my daughters were in Preschool and probably early elementary school, they would go on "nature walks" and collect leaves, sticks, flowers, anything that looked interesting. These items would get glued to a piece of paper (or several) and little notebooks would be made so they could look back at the treasures they found.

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 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
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!
