A Kind Word

These two little girls are so cute – they are from the A Kind Word Stamp Set.  It's a beautiful day today and I thought a perfect day to swing under a tree.  Of course, I don't have a swing now but I can dream.  The kind of swing I had when I was growing up was a tire tied to a rope and that was a lot of fun!  What… Read More »

Love You!

When I'm not feeling well, I really don't have the energy to come up with a good idea for a card.  So I decided to case this card from the catalog.  Well, it's not an exact case, I changed the placement of the main image and the pattern paper used. This card is so simple yet so elegant – it probably took me all of ten minutes to color in… Read More »

Time is running out!

For many people, scrapbooking has played an important role in their lives. It may have started with something simple: the first time they placed a sticker on a piece of paper or picked up a camera. Perhaps for you, it was the first time you realized you could make money doing what you love! But no matter what brought a person to scrapbooking, all scrapbookers have something in common with… Read More »

Elegant Greetings

When I started working on my card for today I had an entirely different card in mind.  That card included Dreams Du Jour.  But somewhere along the way it came out differently – it has the same color scheme and the same pattern paper but this card does not resemble what I had in mind.  Has that every happen to you?  I'll have to make that card because if I… Read More »
