Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday. I am SO glad that it is Wednesday and that it is almost a long weekend! I don't have a card for you tonight, but wanted to do a quick update and show you some photographs of what has been visiting our garden. I was on a conference call the other day and heard a thump. I hate that sound. It's the sound of a bird connecting with one of the windows. We have put up all sorts of devices, lights in the widows, decals to break up the windows - placed about every 8 inches.... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday night. Quick post for you tonight. I made this card for the banner challenge across at Cas-ualfridays.

The last couple of days have been spent running around unpacking boxes, moving furniture and trying to get everything in its place. All the time that I... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Wednesday Yay.... we are past the mid-way point in the week and the weekend is almost upon us... and we have furniture arriving tomorrow. It's a great day :-) I made a second card for the cas-ual fridays splish splash challenge. I knew that I wanted to use one of my brand new sets - By the Seashore. In case you missed this set in the new catalog - here's a quick view of it. I love the realism in the sketches and have been waiting for an excuse to ink it up. This challenge was the... Read more →
