Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. My card post is very late for the challenge this week. Lou and I have just returned from celebrating my big birthday on a surprise cruise in the Caribbean and, although I thought I had created the post and scheduled it.... it seems that in my haste to get packed and ready to go.... I hadn't saved the post! Luckily, I did have my card already before I left. So, because I am so late, I will make this a really quick post and share a little about our vacation - and some photos - later... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Sunday. I really hope you are all having a great weekend. It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a fabulous CAS challenge for us - and...I have to give a shout out to Nance's amazing badge :-) Isn't that badge so adorable?

I realized I had the new Stampin' Up! dragonfly stamp and that this would be the ideal focal image. Now..... what to place it on? It took me a while before I remembered I had a Tim Holtz Wildflower stencil and used it with my Heidi Swapp... Read more →


Hi Everyone Happy Thursday. I hope you are all having a great week. One of the challenges I got to play with this past weekend was this gorgeous color scheme from The Card Concept: Aren't those colors glorious? I was immediately inspired to create..... yes..... you guessed it... a shaker card! I am obsessed with them right now and, I have to tell you, the biggest enabler for me loving shaker's right now is because of Stampin' Up's new foam strips. I LOVE them and they make creating a shaker incredibly easy. I decided to use my new Simon Says... Read more →
