So.....if you have been reading my blog you might have noticed that my posts lately have been rather sporadic....or just plain missing. There is a major change in my life....a good one....but it’s meant that I’ve had a little....sometimes a lot....less time to get things done. Important things to me that help keep my… Continue reading Turtle Friends…..
I have finally gotten back to playing with paper...which for me is making cards. I saw this front triangle pocket card design and thought I’d give it a try. It was much easier than I thought and I love that it makes the card look like an envelope. And I think the design is a… Continue reading Pretty Perennial Triangle Pocket Fun Fold Card
I love pansies....the vibrant colors, soft petals...they are beautiful to use in landscaping....unless you have rogue bunnies in your yard! A few years ago I bought about 80 pansy plants at a local high school fundraiser to fill a rather large flower bed in front of my house. I planted them one afternoon. They looked… Continue reading Pansy Patch Quick and Easy Card
It’s easy to overlook stamp sets in the Annual Catalog....especially when a smaller Mini Catalog come out a month of two after the Annual Catalog launch with even more fun stamp sets to play with and if it's a set that carried over from a previous year, sometimes they don't get a second look.

Who remembers the tongue twister...She sells seashells by the seashore? Can you say it three times fast? Me neither. Who likes to collect seashells? Me! My happy place is the beach. I love to sit and watch the waves and I also love to walk the beach and look for shells. I have a very… Continue reading Seashells by the Seashore…..
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. Personally, I think I would have added Crafting in there somewhere. I spent a few… Continue reading Nothings Better Than…..
This is actually a re-make of a card that I made in 2019 when I was visiting my daughter in Seoul, South Korea. I had packed a few stamping supplies so I could stamp on the long 17 hour flight, I didn’t end up doing that....those seat trays are tiny! But I did make quite… Continue reading Fine Art Floral Fun Fold
