  • Amazing Birthday Card for a Fun n’ Crafty Card Swap

    I need a little bright and cheery today since the Seattle weather went from hot and sunny (which was perfect for our camping trip last weekend) to cool and damp again.  So, I thought I would share with you a card I created for a card swap among my Fun n’ Crafty demonstrator group.  We […]

    A Pretty Idea for Petal Parade

    I will admit, when I saw the catalog image for the Petal Parade stamp set that is available as part of Sale-a-Bration (you know, get it free with a $50 order!), I thought it looked kind of boring.  Some abstract flower images and that was it.  But then – like usual – I saw some […]

  • A Quinceanera Dancing Queen for CuteCardThursday!

    Oops! I’ve totally fallen behind on my blog posting this week.  I’ll let you in on a secret – I’m working on a design refresh for my blog – and I’ve gotten so caught up with that and my monthly Stampin’ Up! team meeting this week, that I completely got behind on blog posts. But, […]
