Ride With The Windows Open!

Ride with the windows open.....this is I rarely do!  I like my air conditioning especially in the summer heat, but there are plenty of people who do all the time....So I guess this card is for them. The new RIDE WITH ME STAMP SET is a little bit of fun and perfect for a birthday card for… Continue reading Ride With The Windows Open!

A Salute to the Red, White & Blue!

This is my last post for my Red, White and Blue week!  The Fourth of July is over but the the memories remain....A Movie Date with my husband, London Broil on the grill, watching the Boston Pops and the beauty of fireworks bursting in the air choreographed to Patriotic Music from New York City. Speaking… Continue reading A Salute to the Red, White & Blue!

Patriotic Lighthouse

My husband loves lighthouses....and to tell the truth, so do I.  If we are traveling and there is a lighthouse nearby, chances are we will stop and visit, climb up to the top and survey the scenery.  Besides cardmaking, I also love to research my family’s genealogy.  I had a relative who was a Head… Continue reading Patriotic Lighthouse

Patriotic Daisies

As promised earlier, this first week of July is Red, White & Blue week!  It’s fitting since the Fourth of July is rapidly coming up, so what better time to have a few Patriotic looking cards?  I’m getting ready later this month for a special class featuring the New Daisy Lane Suite (details below), so… Continue reading Patriotic Daisies

Cow’s It Going??

I have been having so much fun with the new OVER THE MOON Stamp set....just “Udderly” too much fun!  If one cow on a card is fun....then a bunch is simply “Moovalous” right?  Especially when you pile them on top of each other.  This is not my original idea, but I’ve seen several versions and not… Continue reading Cow’s It Going??

Folding Fun With Free as a Bird

I was looking for something different to do with my limited stamp sets, so I decided that I needed to try and do some different types of folding my cards.  So instead of the traditional side or top fold, I branched out a little and tried something new. Laying down flat it just looks like… Continue reading Folding Fun With Free as a Bird

Blank Card, Stampin' Up!, Thank You

Pretty Papers

I’m still in Korea....and I’ve been doing a little shopping.  It’s not clothes, trinkets or souvenirs that draw my eye into the tiny little shops....it’s the card’s and the paper!  I can pass by all the trendy clothes, the teas, the soaps, the ceramics (well, except for the cute little cow I showed you in… Continue reading Pretty Papers

Show Me Some Cow Love

I’m currently visiting my daughter in South Korea and brought limited supplies with me.  I brought this CRAFT AND CARRY STAMPERATUS Bag on the plane....and put more in my suitcase.  It’s only about 9” x 9” square, but I did manage to fit several stamp sets, ink pads, paper, ribbon, a few embellishments and....hmmm that might… Continue reading Show Me Some Cow Love

Follow Your (He)Art

If you’re a crafty person or a wanna-be crafty person, you need to Follow Your (He)Art.  Some people love to paint, others like to watercolor...or maybe just color with crayons or pencils.  Or maybe you like to fold and glue things together.  Maybe you just like to put ink to paper with a rubber stamp.… Continue reading Follow Your (He)Art

Sailing on Calm Seas

I’ve only been sailing a few times in my lifetime, but I did think it was a grand adventure.   A few months ago, I was in Key West, Florida for my daughter’s wedding.  After all the festivities were over, my family made a little mini vacation out of the rest of the week.  One… Continue reading Sailing on Calm Seas
