May Day Basket


Do you remember making May Day Baskets? Can't say that would be a bad tradition to bring back. I believe they used to be placed on people's door step as a surprise! I remember making small ones as a child out of paper in school. But that was a VERY long time ago.

Wouldn't this be great filled with poinsettias at Christmas time! Oh, the endless possibilities!

Here is a great video by Dawn on how to create the basket: CLICK HERE

Hope you give it a try and share your completed project. I have some more variations to make, so will talk to you next time. Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

St. Bernard undefined


There is a very special person in my life that loves her St. Bernard! I had to have a stamp to share on her cards, so created this one. Sure hope she thinks it looks like her "Buffalo" at least a little!

The Undefined kit from Stampin' Up is SO easy to work with. I amaze myself each time I use it and I think you will also! You really should give it a try!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Washi Tape Card


After a couple of beautiful spring days, we are back to cold and snow. Won't complain too hard though, because we need to moisture so badly!

This card is decorated with strips of washi tape to form the back ground. I added jewels to the one strip and placed the sentiment at the intersection. I am thinking a black and white version would be perfect for a graduation card, so you may see that in the future.

Hope you are all staying safe and warm, and having a great day! Thanks so very much for stopping by!

pink on pink


I made this one for Valentine's Day, but I think it would make a great sweet sixteen birthday, or several other occasions. Just change the sentiment. It is also quick and easy!

Now for my good news!!! We have relocated to an area that has internet!!!! So I hope to be posting a lot more! I am still unpacking, so it may be a little bit before I actually am able to get into a routine again, but that is my goal!

I haven't done my Easter cards yet, either, so must get those done. I have some really fun ideas, so don't want to waste them!

Have a great day and thanks SO MUCH for stopping by!!!

Teddy card in a box





These adorable little teddy bears were a free gift with one of my magazines. I knew I had to use them for my daughter, and when I found the card-in-a-box, also knew they would be perfect for one!! What do you think?

If you haven't tried this style of card, you really should. I know that you will even impress yourself! I have other examples and directions in previous posts, so hope you will give it a try. Let me know if you have any questions.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

More anniversaries







Seems several of my family members decided to get hitched fifty years ago! We have celebrated three of these in as many months. The last picture is the inside of the center picture. This couple was married on Valentine's Day and are my folks.

Hope you have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
