Hi Everyone. A quick post for you tonight.... Lou and I have been very busy and it has been pretty impossible for me to get to my blog, but I did want to send you all a little sunshine tonight. I don't know about your neck of the woods but Minnesota has certainly got its fair share of rain.... but nothing like poor Colleen has been experiencing down in Texas... along with the baseball size hail and..... earthquakes! Colleen, glad that you are alright and that you received little damage. One of the things I have challenged myself to do... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. I don't know about you... but I am STILL not ready for Christmas. I know it's just around the corner, but I seem to have so much to do before I can call myself remotely ready!

Hi Everyone. Happy Saturday. It's the fabuous Karen's turn to host our challenge at Addicted to CAS this week and she has a great code word for us.

Here's my transport card: I love the little ambulance speeding along on the tarmac road and, of... Read more →


Hi Everyone. Happy Tuesday. I have another card for you tonight. I saw this great sketch across at retrosketches on Sunday and couldn't wait to play along. It's a super cool sketch and I had this idea to incorporate my new Sunshine and Sprinkles DSP from SU. Now, I would have paired it with the new SU Rain or Shine stamp set. However, I already had a set from another vendor that I bought a little while ago! So, I used that stamp instead and paired it with the new SU cloud embossing folder. Here's what I did with the...

Hi Everyone. Happy Friday. It's Friday! Oh, yeah! You all know that makes me happy. I know I will have to work this weekend, but right now, I am enjoying some down time. In fact, I managed to get away from my desk at 4pm and Lou and I went to the movies. I felt as though I was playing hookie from school! I wanted to share two different variations on the card that I showed you last night. The one from last night was the first of the cards that I did. I changed things up a little for... Read more →
