Sweet Spring Treats

By | April 5, 2016

Before the Easter season has completely passed I wanted to show these beautiful treasures that my friend Kathy Sawyer shared with our friends in the Hostess Stamping group.

By | March 29, 2016

There’s nothing in the world cuter than a little baby, and that goes for the animal world too!

A Horse of a Different Color…

By | February 21, 2016

…or a card of a different shape – either way something unique is worth a second look! Reggie gave me a tri-folded Valentine card this year, so I decide to re-create that shape for an appreciation card with a seaside motif: I constructed this card from a 12 x 12 piece of Pool Party card… Read More »

By | January 23, 2016

Color Equation: B & W + Red = Gr8!

By | January 19, 2016

When our sister-in-law Mindy’s thank you card arrived a few days ago, I thought immediately of how much I adore black, white and red together on a card. This is a simple layout, but with the glittery embossing and tiny red heart there’s a lot to love here. This inspired me to to use the… Read More »

Take Time to Smell the Roses…

By | January 18, 2016

…and take time to handcraft beautiful cards for significant times.

These are a good example of versatility because they each used a different set of flowers and leaves,… Read More »
