Father's Day

This one is for my sweet hubby.  He loves old trucks and this set is perfect!


I used several sets to make this one, but the star of the show is this little pickup from Honey Bee stamps.  I added some rays of sunshine and an old windmill to complete the scene.

Thanks for coming by to see.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

Mother's Day

Here's another work ahead card for Mother's Day.  I love this stamp set!


This is the PTI Bloom & Grow set.  It was a lot of fun to do.  There are stencils for the base part of the flowers and stamps to add the accents.   Then I popped up a few of the flowers to add some dimension.

Happy Anniversary

I have been making cards for upcoming events that will fall close to our vacation, and thought I better get them posted.  Our kids both have anniversaries, one in May and one in June.



As you can see, I used the same stamp set for both - PTI Embellished Elegance.  I love all of the little flowers in this set.

You are Toad-Ally Awesome

This little toad makes me happy!  Isn't he a cutie!


This stamp set is from MFT and is called Springtime Critters.  The background is a panel I made a few weeks ago using a finger nail polish technique.  I love how it came out.  The colors are very vivid.

For this technique you need a container big enough to submerge a piece of card stock.  Start by filling the container with water.  Add the finger nail polish by drops until the surface is covered.  You need to act quickly.  Place the card stock on top of the polish and push under water.  Lift it out and allow to dry thoroughly.  It is a fun background to make and use.

Happy Easter

I made these for my grandkiddos and my great niece. I thought I better get them posted before Easter passes me by.


I'm happy with the way these came out. The basket is a die I bought from Reverse Confetti over a year ago and never used. It is adorable!

Carrot Box Treats

When I saw this die, I knew I was going to have to get it. These little treats are so cute!







I had all kinds of trouble with this die.  It would cut the cutting lines and, also, the fold lines. It was very frustrating.  Customer Service said they had no trouble with it and that I should use a heavier card stock and put washi tape over the fold lines.  Finally, at the suggestion of my husband, I used an emery board and filed the fold lines down a bit.  Now it cuts much better and only on the lines that should be cut.
