Same Design….But Different!

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

Blank Card, Stampin' Up!, Sympathy

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

Taking a Bird Break

Taking a break from the Christmas madness to bring you some beautiful birds. They kind of happened by accident.  A class to make Christmas gift bags and treat holders was cancelled when life got in the way and several people weren’t able to come.  It left just one....my friend Karen.  She loves birds.  Blue birds.… Continue reading Taking a Bird Break

Christmas, Gift Card Holders, Seasonal - Winter, Stampin' Up!

A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Do you love surprises??  I do!  Especially when it comes inside a present.  Did you know you can make a card that looks like a present and then hide a gift inside?  How about a card like this?  Usually I’m just expecting to open the card and see a familiar signature wishing me happy thoughts.… Continue reading A Christmas “Pop Up” Surprise

Christmas, Seasonal - Winter, Stampin' Up!

Country Christmas

Stampin’ Up has an entire Holiday Catalog full of Christmas themed stamp sets.  And they have even more Christmas themed stamp sets in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  But the Christmas card I am sharing with you today is not made with any of those, but with a stamp set called Jars of Love. Here is… Continue reading Country Christmas

A Bag Full of Swag

One of the fun perks of being a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator and going to conventions is all the free swag that you come home with.  When I registered, I got this box - It’s a beautiful box...but what was inside was even better! The box contained a reversable canvas bag (and we needed this each… Continue reading A Bag Full of Swag

Birthday, Blank Card

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

Christmas, Seasonal - Winter

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

General Cards, Just A Note, Thinking of You

It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not

Earlier this week I posted about my simple wreath card and the Wishing You Well Stamp set.  You can see that post HERE.  But I still wasn’t done making cards with this stamp set. I was using it for a card class, so I was looking at all the different possibilities....read that “seasons” to use… Continue reading It’s a Seasonal Thing….Or Not
