Special Place...

>> Tuesday, April 16, 2024


As many who know me, they are aware of the pet sympathy cards I make. I donate hundreds of cards every year to pet organizations. This sentiment SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART GREETING - 307E is perfect for a very quick pet sympathy card.

  • I used a stencil to create a rainbow background and then I stamped the sentiment over the rainbow.
  • I then finished the card with a few scattered hearts.
Thank you for stopping my to check out my card this week.


Mothers Day Tea

>> Monday, April 15, 2024


For this delightful creation, I adorned the card base with charming pink POLKA DOT BACKGROUND - 688P.

Following that, I meticulously colored this darling VIOLET TEACUP - 1079H using copic markers and carefully fussy-cut it, elevating it with dimensionals for added depth.

To complete the ensemble, I stamped just the Mother's Day sentiment from YOU WERE RIGHT MOTHER'S DAY GREETING - 117G in matching pink, punched it out, and elevated it with dimensionals. A scattering of sparkling gems adds the perfect finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card this week.


Stadium Waves

>> Friday, April 12, 2024

Hello Crafty Friends,

The idea for this card sat in my mind for over a month.  The first time I saw that new Happiness Comes in Waves Greeting, I wanted to do a stadium wave to go with it. I was a bit afraid of drawing a crowd, but this week inspiration hit me.

I quickly drew the people, water-colored them, and added the sentiment.  

Hope you are finding inspiration in your life and finding much happiness.




Baby, Congratulations

Cowgirl Birthday

>> Thursday, April 4, 2024

 Hello crafting friends,

I decided to do something a little different today, it's something I did years ago for a book cover I think.  I added glue to the ridges of corrugated stock then filled it with micro beads.  Sort of fun for a different kind of look.  I also added some kraft color twine and glittered rhinestnes.  The images I used today, DRS stamps: Lasso Cowgirl, 4 in 1 Cowboy Gear, and Saddle Up Birthday.

I used just part of the sentiment on the front and the rest inside with the saddle.

Our cowgirl is dressed in pink, she is adorable!

Thanks for visiting today.


Cherry Blossom Sympathy

>> Wednesday, April 3, 2024

Hello Crafty Friends,

I watched THIS lovely tutorial, switched it to watercolors, and painted a peaceful watercolor scene of water and cherry blossoms for this Sympathy card using Brush In Deepest Sympathy. 

It was a bit tricky since watercolor is not as forgiving when painting over another color, but the colors here (from the color challenge on this week) made it easier as they are vivid and work well together. I did use white gouache for the blossoms, lights, and water lines which helped as well.  

Hope your week is going well.




Happy Anniversary

>> Tuesday, April 2, 2024

Hi Everyone,

My best friend has her 30th anniversary coming up this month, and since I've been making a card for many of those years, I think I've used most of my anniversary themed stamps for them already.  I was trying to think outside the box when I came across some Valentine stamps that I still had out on my stamping table.  How messy am I, it's April!?! Yikes.  Anyway, I thought if I used spring colors with these stamps that I would normally use pink or red for, they could make a cute anniversary card.  

Here are the stamps I used:

Happy Spring!
