Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. Greetings from a snowy Minnesota! As the snow has covered the ground and the chickadees are very frequent at the feeders, I thought it was time to bring my new Chickadee stamp set out and the challenge at Merry Mondays was the perfect one to use! Seriously? Whenever have I needed an excuse to make a card using a bird? :-) This stamp set has the most fabulous image of a chickadee and I had such incredible fun coloring it. Oh! and, considering doctor's are now saying that coloring helps relieve stress - it's a win-win... Read more →

Hi Everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I know we did :-) It's the fabulous Sandy's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a wonderful Tic Tac Toe for us: I thought about the various options and finally decided to go with "snowflake", "sparkle" and "die-cut".

I then took my mini mister and added... Read more →

Hi Everyone. Happy Monday. I know you must all be busy prepping for Turkey day - so I will keep this post short and sweet :-) I promised to share another card I had made using Laurie's fabulous sketch for the Paper Players challenge this week I used the Be Strong set for my card on this post and went a totally different direction for tonight's card. I have a new Christmas set from Fun Stamper's Journey called Christmas Melody. It's a beautiful set and I made 4 cards with it this weekend and will be sharing those with you... Read more →

Hi Everyone, happy Sunday. It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great sketch challenge for us. As I am still making cards to add to the next stash of cards for Card Care Connection and Cards for Hospitalized Kids, when I saw the "Be Strong" stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey, I realized it would be perfect to use on a card for my next submission to Card Care connection. I used some Fun Stampers Journey Basic Pastel Papers for the patterned DSP and colored the stamp with Stampin' Up!... Read more →
