Designer
Hi! I’m Gina and I have loved Winnie the Pooh for as long as I can remember, the book is one that I always keep near. Some of my favorite people in the world call me Auntie Gina, and they are the ones who I started making cards for, and still do a lot of the time. I live with my husband and my dog in beautiful Portland, Oregon. I have MS and utilize making cards as a form of therapy. I love reading and going on adventurers with my husband and our nieces &┬ánephews.

Sometimes I find card making supplies in other sections of the store. I just went through the Michaels website and I can’t find the bat and ghost anywhere. That could be because I found them in the party section? They were packaged to be scattered on a table as a part of a Halloween party decoration series that I don’t think they have this year. Then again I buy kitchen supplies at the hardware store.

Birthday hearts and flowers

Birthday hearts and flowers

Wondering how things will work leads to a lot of the cards that I make. The background of this card is definitely a case of this. Playing with colors, playing with resist spray, playing with water. It’s nice when it all works out in the end!

Isn’t she cute? I just love this little sprite. The quote makes me unbelievably happy as well. “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower” -swoon That is exactly how I feel. This card came together so well that it exceeded my expectations completely! Even when I was playing around making the background paper my husband peeked at it and said “That’s fall”, I knew I had it right at that point.

The pain in my arm is not helping me at all. It is getting better, slowly. I wish it would hurry up a bit. I just deleted everything that I had written for this post on accident…oops. I also should have used a lighter cardstock for the background of this card but didn’t really realize that until way too late. Again, oops.

Caught a bug?

Caught a bug?

My shoulder is currently not playing nice. It is trying to get my neck to join it, but it is holding out for the most part. I don’t know what exactly is up with it, I just know it hurts. I hate when this happens. I thought when I woke up this morning that it had worked itself out but I was wrong.

Belated birthday sloth

Belated birthday sloth

While I was making this card I kept thinking about a show I would watch with my nephew when he was a wee one. The main character was a large sloth named Snook. We would watch it at the same time as my mother-in-law and niece were watching it down the street, we had a couple of shows we co-watched with people. The really frustrating thing was they moved the time it was on all of a sudden and it threw off the schedule in both houses.
