Seascape

This card started out one way and then took a turn and went a completely different way in the end.  It’s strange to me how that happens sometimes, it deviates from the sketch but I still see how it was influenced by it.

Summer hello

Summer and swimming belong together to me kind of like peanut butter and jelly.  Of course, I love to swim all year round, kind of like I enjoy either peanut butter or jelly in other ways, but there is just something about putting them together that feels right. read more

Anniversary bouquet and cake

It dawned on me that it is kind of apropos the first card I made was an anniversary card for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law so every year it marks my card making anniversary by making their anniversary card, which in a way has become my anniversary card in a way also.  I have been officially making cards for two years now. read more

Fur you calico

D]oes a birthday card have to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to be a birthday card?  I am giving this as a birthday card, although I realize there is technically nothing that makes it a birthday card.  These are the things that drive me to overthink. read more

Paw print heart

In my life I have had some amazing pets in my life, all of them have definitely left a part of themselves behind in my heart.  When they pass away it destroys me for a bit, it has gotten easier, but it still is horrible, and I make these cards partly because I want to let others know that they are not alone in their grief. read more

Silhouetted reindeer

Hi my name is Gina, and I really am still alive!  Wow, for the most part, I took a week off.  I was doing ‘other’ work and not making cards or doing any of the things that I normally do this last week, I am so glad to be back to ‘normal’.  read more

Spin to relax

My nephew is really into fidget spinners right now and every time we go to one of my favorite craft stores I have been talked into getting him a new one. He has been gone this week and I am missing him horribly, so I made this card for him. read more

Cupcake day

Yumm, cupcakes!  I like calling saying happy cake day instead of happy birthday, I have a friend who always makes a point of cakes on birthday and I think that is a wonderful thing to focus on. read more

Just scootin’

This is an unbirthday card.  You see awhile back a friend of mine had a birthday and I was talking about how I had another card I really wanted to make her at that time and I would just have to make it as an unbirthday card, this is that card. read more

Beautiful mermaid

The sentiment on this card came from one of my favorite stamps.  I send cards to family and friends so that they know someone loves them and is thinking about them, I want people to receive something in the mail besides bills and advertisements.  This sentiment is so nice because it makes people feel special, and all of my family and friends are beautiful to me!  I will be sending one to each of my nieces. read more

Perfect blend

Made the card yesterday and was going to post it, but instead of doing our normal morning swim that we have been doing this week my nephew and I went last night and it just didn’t get done.  By the time this morning came I realized I just didn’t like what I had made and wanted to remake it, so I did, and thankfully I have just enough time to still submit it to the summer coffee lovers blog hop (I hope!). read more

Big (tiny) congrats

I honestly don’t set out to make as many baby-centric cards as I end up making.  I guess I just have a soft spot?  Honestly, baby clothes are just stinking cute and baby paper is as well, especially when you are at the point that you are not being the responsible party for taking care of the baby. read more

Baby showers

A flurry of cards!  One card led to the idea for another card then an inspiration picture reminded me of a past card which all lead to a day of making a flurry of cards, well in actuality I made six cards, but it still took all day and that is how it all started. I am going to post this as two different (but fairly identicalI) posts since I made two stylistically different cards that are identical in the method I used. read more

American cupcake

When I got done watercoloring the frosting on the cupcakes I realized that there was a little bit of glitter, yet I hadn’t added any glitter.  Then I realized that the last thing I painted was a unicorn horn with copper glitter paint and apparently I didn’t get all of the glitter washed out.  I love how it looks but that is why glitter frustrates me sometimes. read more
