Follow this link to see the creations of the other team members. I thought that a […]

Cards Featured Summer

Summer Butterflies

I recently used the same recipe to make cards for a number of different occasions. This card cut is called a collar card. If you rotate the card to the left, it looks like the collar on a shirt. You’ll even see cards that are made to look like shirts! There is another name for […]

Summer Blossoms

I finally found a little time to craft and was blessed with a bit of creativity to match. Most of today’s cards use a digital stamp with an image and/or sentiment.

How Sweet It Is

The camp is only 2 hours away, yet mail takes for ever. Accordingly, I labeled each envelope/package for each day that my daughter should receive […]

New Beginnings . . . A New You

It is a new month. First off, Happy May Day. I do not have a project this year for May Day. Although, the kids and I made simple baskets with pre-made silk flowers to secretly drop at our friend’s and neighbor’s doors. Still loving May Day but had to take the easy route this year. […]
