Wood you be mine?


Hey Everyone! it's been awhile...But it was out of my control. My computer decided it had enough of me, and my demands, and decided to up and quit.. I should have seen it coming really.. life was going a little to smoothly.. :)

 I also took a short trip with my darling husband to Washington D.C.. We took  in some sites, and took time to breathe a little with each other. We have never been "alone" on vacation together, and it was about time.. so thanks to my Mom, we escaped for a few days.. Yea! :) 

So this week I am excited to have a new computer,  and to play with some new stamps that came while I was away. Whoop! Today I am sharing a card made with a Valentine set from the Occasions mini called "Wood you be Mine".. its a little quirky at first glance, but Super Fun!! Here is my card - 



I used my Blendabilities markers to color this LOVE-able Lumberjack shouting "Timber!"
Here is the inside  -


I just separated the sentiment, masked it, and stamped the tree line image so it appears behind it. I love it! This is such a fun Valentine I can't wait to send it! :) Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Greetings from Earth


Hey Everyone! I have been trying to knock out some last minute Christmas cards the last few days, and wanted to share a card that I really like and is not your typical "Christmas/Holiday" card. I always try to look at my stash of stamps and try to figure out how to use them for every occasion. I pulled out the set Greetings From, and a retired set called Greetings of the season, and came up with this -


Super fast and clean and simple card... Just paper and ink..really. I think its perfect to give to anyone during the holiday season. Yea! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

a dazzling 60 years

Hey Everyone! I have been busy, like the rest of you I am sure, getting ready for the upcoming holidays. This past weekend I painted our back hall, and yesterday I made an anniversary frame for my beloved neighbors. They are celebrating 60 years of marriage. Wow! I am just in awe of them every time we share stories over the fence with each other. They both are wonderfully amazing people, and full of life and love for each other. So, as a token of my love for them, I decided to make a frame for them. I made a card a few months back for a couple celebrating their 50th. A fellow demo, Carol Carriveau, made the suggestion to put it in a frame, so that's what I did. Thanks Carol! Here is the frame -



I just changed up the numbers, and used Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper in lieu of the gold foil on the original considering it is their diamond anniversary. :) Here is a close up - 


I really loved making this for them, and I am sure they will love it too! OK, off to get some ingredients for this weekends Boy Scout bake sale! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Peace & Joy


Hello Everyone! We made it to the weekend! :) This past week has been productive in the creative dept, and I couldn't happier! Whoop! Here is my latest project - 


I have had this idea tooling around in my head for over a year, and had intended to use the retired Neighborhood Wheel, (one of my all time favorite images from Stampin' Up! by the way,) but how convenient that SU comes out with Holiday Home. Whoop! Perfect for the project wouldn't you say? 
I had so much fun coloring and making all the little details. Here is a close up -



 Yes, it took time, but the time was well worth it,.. I love it! Besides, some quality me time was had too! OK, I am off and running, as always thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
