Quick and easy cards…who likes them? I do! There is something to be said for having one BIG stamp that covers the entire card front. Stamp once, do a bit of coloring, add a little embossing and put it all together. This is the result. I made this card for a special friend who lost… Continue reading Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card
My Mom came for an extended visit in May and after two weeks with us, she decided that she was ready to make the move from Arizona to Virginia and live with my husband and me.

So...how would you fill in the blank? The stamp set I used to for today’s card is called Nothings Better Than and the stamps in the set give you four choices for an answer....Cookies, Chocolate (my choice), Cocktails and Coffee.
