I’m Over the Moon About These Cows!

I love fun cards.  They just seem so much more cheerful to put into the mail.  And these cows in the OVER THE MOON stamp set, fit the bill. I have to give credit to Corinne Oosterhoff, a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator in Denmark.  She shared a card on a Facebook page for Stampin’ Up Demonstrators and… Continue reading I’m Over the Moon About These Cows!

Good Morning Magnolia!

My mother-in-law, who passed away in 2015 from Alzheimer’s Disease, loved flowers.  She could make anything grow, even flowers and plants that she would give to me and I would seemingly kill, she would bring them back to life.  She had a beautiful yard full of flowers...that included a HUGE magnolia tree.   June 6th… Continue reading Good Morning Magnolia!

Retiring Favorite – En Route

So my Red, White and Blue week last week didn’t work out as I expected.  I was getting ready to travel.....19 hour airplane trip....and I’ll be gone almost a month.  I had so many things to do and even though I thought I could fit everything in....it just didn’t happen.  So I’m going to save… Continue reading Retiring Favorite – En Route

Monotone Monday – Petals & More

Hello....welcome to Monotone Monday!  Or maybe I should have named this post I’ve Got the Monday Blues.  Either way, the card I’m going to share today was a little happy accident...and it started with blue branches.

Retiring Favorites – Petal Palette

There are so many good and fun stamp sets that are retiring on June 3rd.  But just because they are retiring from the catalog, doesn’t mean that they can’t be used to make beautiful cards. Petal Palette is another one of my first purchases....and there is so much goodness in this stamp set that it comes… Continue reading Retiring Favorites – Petal Palette

Stamping is not just for cards

Most everything I post is cards, cards and more cards with a few treat boxes & bags thrown in.  But every once in a while, I get asked to do “make something” for an event.  My niece is pregnant and of course there was a baby shower.  The theme of the shower was “Children’s Books”.… Continue reading Stamping is not just for cards

Still Blooming with Happiness

I saw this definition of Spring the other day....SPRING: A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can be.  So while this definiation is more about flowers and plants blooming back to life after a long winter, it also applies to other parts of our lives.  Change can be good especially when it brings new and… Continue reading Still Blooming with Happiness
