Hi Everyone,. Happy Saturday. I have a very quick post for you tonight,. It's the fabulous Bobby's turn to host our Addicted to Cas Challenge this week and this is her code word: I decided it was time to pull out my old Altenew Spring Daisy set. I paired it with a die from Ellen Hutson Essentials and a sentiment from Stampin' Up. Here's my card: I stamped the outline of the flower in Stazon Timber Brown and used some Altenew inks for the inside of the daisy. I needed a horizontal element to ground the sentiment and the Ellen... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I have a quick pos for you tonight. Now y'all know by now that I'm crazy about animals and am "that" crazy cat lady and I always feel for fellow nimal lovers when they lose a four legged friend.

Its the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and it's a theme challenge: I needed a sketch to help me along, so visited my favorite sketch site - FreshlyMadeSketches I don't really have many water sport stamps, but was looking through my stash and found this wonderful set that came free with a UK crafting magazine. I used three stamps from the set and decided it would work :-) I know Puddle Jumping isn't an Olympic sport, but it was one I used to love as a kid and would do... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Hppy Saturday. It's the fabulous Ceal's turn to host ouor Addicted to CAS challenge and she has a theme that most of us can really relate to right now! I also want to thank my Addictd to CAS team for their patience and picking up for me whilst I was unable to card! Considering it was over 90 degrees with 88% humidity when I made this card, it was certainly hot:-) As I am still recovering from hand surgery, CAS is as much as I can manage right now, this was a perfect challenge. I used my Tim... Read more →
