Corny but thankful

This was probably the first stamp set that I actually purchased outside of what I received in the kits I started with.  I used it to make my nieces and nephews Thanksgiving cards and have wanted to make more cards using it ever since and I just never seem to reach for it.  I need to really start challenging myself to use some of these stamps more! read more

Furry angels

My husband and I were having a discussion about this card over lunch.  I said that I don’t necessarily think it has to be a sympathy card because I think my puppy is an angel.  He then asked me if I meant the same dog that was currently in on the couch with a tummy to sick to beg for cheese because he had eaten who knows what? read more

Fall bouquet

Oh Fall!  Hurry up and get here!  If it were up to me it would be fall all year long.  I just don’t get along with the other seasons, as I like to call them freezing to death, allergies, and heat stroke. read more

Sorry dahlia

This card has taken me all weekend to make!  Not because of the difficulty of the card, but because everytime I sit down to work on it I get distracted by other things.  I am beginning to think the card is trying to apologize to me (yeah, they don’t really do that). read more

Dotted thanks

Sometimes I go into a challenge wanting to use a specific set of stamps, and sometimes it works and sometimes not.  This time it was almost like this challenge was meant for this stamp set. read more

Back to school

School supplies!  I have a love of school supplies and shopping for school supplies that age just doesn’t seem to affect.  Office supplies are ok, but nothing quite compares to school supplies. read more

Birthday presents

So, I picked up this paper pad at WalMart, where I normally don’t shop but my nephew wanted something from there so we went and I had a gift card from a settlement of some form so I thought why not. I loved how bright this paper was, and I love paper pads because it is pretty easy to assume everything basically goes together. This actually made me think of strips of wrapping paper from the presents as I was putting it together. read more

Under the weather birds

There was recently extremely sad news about the amazing lady who was the artist behind the image on this card (and the first digital stamp I ever used on a card.).  People seem to just keep disappearing.  I purchased this image awhile back and every time I would see it I would remember I really wanted to make this card and then put it off, well the time has come! read more

Anniversary wreath

This is actually a card for a very important couple in my life who I won’t say too much about so not to completely spoil any ‘surprise’, but when I was trying to do a rough guesstimate of how many years I realized I could at least start with how old I am, and that alone is saying something. read more

Congratulations flower

I make myself plans for making cards so that I am not just making 50 baby cards when baby stuff is just so darn cute and that is all I really want to make.  Well, the best-laid plans and all, I miss read my list and thought I needed to make a Congratulations card even though I had just made one…  I do however need to make some that aren’t so pink I guess, oh well, next month. read more

Polka dotted pumpkin

It is so hot here that I thought I would try a bit of a psychological trick on myself today and make a fall card to see if it would help me feel cooler.  It didn’t work.  I guess I should have tried winter and snow. read more

Book magic

How could I not fall in love with this image?  The fact that the book is magically coming to life while she is reading it?  I want to slip this card in a gift book for someone! read more
