Birthday Treat Bags

Last week just seemed to drag on forever and I didn’t get anything accomplished.  So I decided I needed to do something fun, bright and cheery to get myself back on track.  So what better way than to make some fun birthday treat bags or maybe it’s more like a box that looks like a… Continue reading Birthday Treat Bags

Giraffes in the Midst (of Leaves)

My title is a really bad play on words....Gorillas in the Mist.....Giraffes in the Midst (of Leaves).  I’m going to blame it on the fact that I was on vacation last week and was out in the sun a lot, might have baked my brains.  But it’s back to reality....no more 80 degree sunshiny days....back… Continue reading Giraffes in the Midst (of Leaves)

A Beach Rainbow

Palm trees come in all sizes and shapes....but I’m not sure that they come in rainbow colors like Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Grapefruit Grove....unless you are stamping them on a card that is. I think they look good!  What do you think?  The palm tree is actually part of the stamp… Continue reading A Beach Rainbow

Feels Like Spring!

Our weather last week was unusually warm....in the 70’s!  So I thought maybe Puxatawny Phil, the famous Groundhog in Pennsylvania is right and warm weather was on it’s way.  Until we got to this past Saturday....that 70 degree weather became 32 degree weather.  So in hopes of bringing back the warm weather, I thought it… Continue reading Feels Like Spring!

A Trio of Butterflies

When I was getting ready for last Card & Chat class, I decided to break out the butterflies.   We did some watercoloring using Aqua Painters and ink pads to make this butterfly card that I blogged about last week.  But then I decided to show how to use the Aqua Painters in a different way.… Continue reading A Trio of Butterflies
