Happy Spring!

We have had some pretty nice spring weather this week - FINALLY!  Easter was fun at my sister Joann's house. Five of my siblings were able to make it and it was great seeing some of my nieces and nephews too.  Joann made a delicious dinner that included baked ham, pirogi, pineapple salad, sausage, sauerkraut, tuna macaroni salad, baked beans and many appetizers and desserts.  Needless to say, it was a feast!   (I came home with two new recipes that are awesome, too.) I hope everyone had as nice a day as we did on Easter. 

The card I am posting today is one that I sent to my friend Claire from Paper Digital Arts in February.  I used my brick wall embossing folder that has become a new favorite of mine and I got a lot of compliments on it from my friends.  Here is the card:
It is just a simple design but the brick wall makes it just elegant enough. 

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great day!

I'm back!

Well, it has been more than a year since I last posted on here.  SORRY!  It has been a heck of a year for me and I am determined to start posting regularly.  I made a card for Monique because we were partnered in the March Holiday Swap on Paper Digital Arts.  Here is the card:
I'll be back with more cards in a day or two.  I hope you have a GREAT day and thanks for visiting my blog!

A Bright Winter Day

Hi Everyone! 

It is a beautiful, bright and sunny winter day here in mid-Michigan. The temp is 17 degrees F and there are some occasional flurries. That is my kind of day! I took my car in for an oil change today, stopped at the super market and still have to go to a Dr. appointment this afternoon. (Just routine) And now, on to the business at hand. 

 I made this card for my daughter Monique last week. It is perfect for the things going on in her life right now. It is from Unity Stamp Co (as was the one I posted last week for Dawn.) Again, I used colored pencils to make the card and I really like the outcome. I also used one of my favorite embossing folders, Swiss Dots.  Speaking of EFs, I recently ordered some new ones and can't wait to use them.

Thanks for stopping by today and please leave a comment - I read and enjoy all of them.  I hope you have a great day!

Finally found some Mojo

Hi Everyone! I finally made some cards - WOO HOO! The one I'm posting is for my daughter Dawn. It has already arrived at her house, so I can post it now. I've had the stamp for a few months and I'm glad I finally used it. I colored it with colored pencils and like the way it turned out. Dawn loved the card and in my next post I will show you the one I made for Her sister, Monique. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today!

My latest creation

Hello Everyone! I finally went upstairs to my Studio and got creative the other day! The only cards I've been making lately were at our monthly stamp camp with the great Angie Jarman. So, it felt great to finally make some on my own. I made four of these to have on hand in my stash. I really liked the way it turned out. I plan to work on cards more often and hopefully post at least once a week. Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have a creative day!

Katy's Valentine

Hello - Here is the card I made for Katy for Valentines Day. I used some stickers and eyelets, ribbon, twine and a button. I gave it to her today at our weekly Friday lunch and I think she really liked it.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a GREAT day!
