Animal Outing Thank You

It’s been a long week and for some reason I’ve had trouble getting back into a schedule after my vacation last week...which is why you are reading this on a Saturday.  Finally got my act together and got my mind out of vacation mode.  But I did have fun earlier this week with a few… Continue reading Animal Outing Thank You

A Beachy Thank You

Today I am sharing a Thank You card that I made for my daughter several months ago when she and her fiancé held an engagement party and house warming.....actually 40 Thank You cards!  I’m super proud of how they turned out.  They were married earlier this week on the beach in Key West, Florida.  So… Continue reading A Beachy Thank You

One Design – Two Different Cards

Recently I was playing around experimenting with some water color backgrounds when I was making Valentine cards.  Some of my attempts were not good...so I just put them aside thinking maybe I could use them for something else.  Besides I hate to waste paper.   One of the instagram people I follow does beautiful watercoloring.… Continue reading One Design – Two Different Cards

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!

It’s Meant to Be!

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase “It just wasn’t meant to be”.  Usually that’s said in times when things didn’t work out as planned or something that you hoped would happen but just didn’t.  But there are some things that are just Meant to Be....a new relationship....falling in love....a marriage.  That happened to me 41 years… Continue reading It’s Meant to Be!

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

Not Your Traditional Valentine

When you think of Valentine’s Day, what colors immediately come to mind?  Ruby Red?, Pale Pink? Bright Pink?  Powder Pink? Cranberry Red? Maybe a little white to go with all that red and pink?  How about green?  Green’s not on your Valentine radar?  It wasn’t on mine either, but Soft Sea Foam Green was one… Continue reading Not Your Traditional Valentine

Just a quick post to let you know that I didn’t forget what I promised last week.  Last week I shared a Valentine’s Card and I told you I would be back with another card using the same layout, but it would be different.....so here it is:   And just to refresh your memory....below is… Continue reading Same Design….But Different!

Love, Valentine’s Day

Looking “Love”-ly

The Holidays are over, a new year has started and if you’ve been in a store lately.....any type of store....grocery, craft store, clothing store, they are busy stocking the shelve’s with anything that has to do with Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and even Easter....which is still 3 months away.  I was given a challenge… Continue reading Looking “Love”-ly

Overflowing with Flowers

I’ve been on a flower kick lately....maybe it’s because the Christmas holidays are over and it’s been a dreary, rainy start to January in Virginia Beach and I’m longing for some sunny weather.  Despite the rain, the temperatures have been almost spring-like....in the 60’s and it even hit 71 degrees a day or two ago.… Continue reading Overflowing with Flowers
