Birthday, Stampin' Up!

One Last Birthday Cheer!

Yesterday was the last day of the OnStage Live Stampin’ Up! convention in Orlando, so I have one last birthday card to share with you before I fly home and it’s fast and easy! This card used the same stamp set, Half Full,  that I used in my birthday card post yesterday, but this one… Continue reading One Last Birthday Cheer!

Perennial Isn’t Just For Flowers

When I’m planting flowers in the spring, I always look for the perennials....those flowers that will come back year after year.  I feel like I am getting more for my money if I don’t have to continually buy all new flowers every year.  But because I have such a black thumb, it’s always a guess… Continue reading Perennial Isn’t Just For Flowers

It’s Fall!

It’s now November and we’ve got lots of leaves in our yard.  We have several River Birch trees and they shed leaves like there is no tomorrow.  The leaves don’t change the beautiful shades of red, yellow and orange.....they just start turning brown and dropping like flies.  No matter how much you rake them up… Continue reading It’s Fall!

Halloween, Paper Pumpkin, Seasonal - Fall

Fall is time for Pumpkins….Paper Pumpkins too!

Happy Halloween!  It’s time for pumpkins, treats and hopefully no tricks!  Since there are lots of real pumpkins decorating everyone’s front steps, lawns, windows, etc, I decided that I would tell you more about the orange box in the side bar of my blog that says Paper Pumpkin. Paper Pumpkin is a monthly  papercrafting kit… Continue reading Fall is time for Pumpkins….Paper Pumpkins too!

My List is Long

I’ve got a list a mile long of things I need to do, cards I want to make, blog posts I need to write.  Sometimes it seems like the more I cross off my list, the more things get added.  Santa’s list is always long and he always seems to be able to deliver all… Continue reading My List is Long

A Wish for Snow….

I currently live in Virginia..,not in the mountains in the southwestern part of the state, but close to the coast...just a few miles from the beach, so we don't get much snow. I'm one of the few who actually WANT it to snow, but sadly it just doesn't happen much here. So I live out… Continue reading A Wish for Snow….

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Yes, I still have Christmas carols on my mind....mainly because I have lots of Santa’s and Mrs. Claus and elves and North Pole signs and presents cluttering up my desk.  I’ve been busy stamping and coloring and die cutting.  It’s how I get my inspiration for the cards I’m going to make.  I make a… Continue reading Santa Claus is Coming to Town

It’s Time for Mistletoe and Holly

For many years I sang with a caroling group called The Joyful Tidings Caroling Company. We dressed in period costumes and sang Christmas songs for events and parties.  It was a great time and I loved it because 1.) I love to sing and 2.) Christmas carols make everyone smile.  One of my favorite Christmas… Continue reading It’s Time for Mistletoe and Holly

Wreaths Belong on Doors

One of my new favorite stamps is the wreath that is part of the Wishing You Well stamp set.  Why do I like it?  It makes me look like an artist when I stamp it!  This stamp set is one of the “distinctive” stamps.  What is a distinctive stamp you say?  Well it’s a special… Continue reading Wreaths Belong on Doors

Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss

It’s another Mix-It-Up Monday.  Don’t know what that is?  It’s when I take an OLD (retired) Stampin’ Up Product and mix it up with a NEW (in the current catalog) product. Let’s face it - we spend money on buying things we love so why should we put them away when they aren’t current anymore?… Continue reading Mix-It-Up Monday – Emboss Like a Boss
