A Joyful Life

A Joyful life is something I strive for.  I do not always achieve it every day, but I am working on it.  In fact it was my New Year’s resolution.  You can read about that here. A Joyful Life also just also happens to be the name of the stamp set that I used to make… Continue reading A Joyful Life

Penguin Week – Card #2

You would think that with an entire week that I could make more than 2 cards.  Nope, not this week.  I’m still playing catch-up after being away from home for almost 6 weeks with no craft supplies.  And now that I have an entire room-ful?  And new ones to boot?  I’m so overwhelmed with having… Continue reading Penguin Week – Card #2

Daisy Garden – One Stamp Card

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

What’s Cookin’? – Dutch Door Fun Fold

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.  I think it was the homecooked food that persuaded her!  She is always asking either "What's for dinner? or… Continue reading What’s Cookin’? – Dutch Door Fun Fold
