Butterflies In A Burst of Color


Hi Everyone,

Summer is in full bloom and so is this card. The background is an explosion of color with simply butterflies fluttering about. Take a look at how simple this project is, using the My Favorite Things Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.

I Love Us Card for the Hubby

Hi there,

Today I am sharing a card that can be used for any occasion to ‘share the love’. This just happens to be for our anniversary, but it can be used for anything. If you are like me, guy cards are always a challenge, especially when my husband likes simple, tailored things… no fanfare. His favorite colors are black and gray so here is my best compliance to his particular likes.

Double The Fun Birthdays

Hi Everyone,

Boy, what a dilemma I had – two cards for twin nephews turning 30 years old. Since masculine cards are always the most challenging (at least for me), I had my work cut out for me. I wanted to make the cards similar but different.  This is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy them!

Winter Bird Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

Here we are on the eve of Thanksgiving.  So much to be grateful for… especially you, our friends in the Crafting World!  You guys are awesome! Thank you for all your lovely comments and support – we couldn’t do it without you!

This card features a Winter Bird serenely perched on a birch tree.  I just love the effects of watercolor – so soft and lovely.  I don’t live where it snows, so a wintery scene allows me to pretend!

Adorable Bear & Things Card

Hi there,

I thought I would take a very short pause from the holiday cards and share a card of an adorable bear to celebrate the birth of a brand new little bundle of joy that came into our family.  Our niece gave birth on Halloween – woo-ee.  She must love having babies on holidays. Her son was born on Valentine’s Day a few years back.  Now little Jolene Priscilla has entered the world.  What a sweet occasion!

I was tempted to do the card in Halloween colors but having daughters myself, I couldn’t resist the soft and beautiful pinks of little new ones…so pink it was.

Hi there! Laurel Beard here today with my last guest post for the month.  I have been so honored to be here! These ladies are amazing, the store is adorable and the blog and their designs? Over the moon fantastic!!!!! I pretty much pin every single thing they make!  Today I have two cards to share with you today using the Altenew Way Too Sweet Stamp Set and the MFT Die-Namics Square Grid Coverup. I actually created the second card with leftovers from the first card! I had a video to go along with these cards too BUT I got a new Iphone and forgot to transfer the footage to my computer before doing a reset of the old phone and POOF, just like that – the video was gone!

Way To Sweet
