Challenge Submission

I am participating in the CASology challenge this week. The cue word is HEART.  I L O V E the heart shape so I just had to come up with something. Of course I racked my brain all week for the ideal design. I have so many heart shaped stamps and actually made a card, but I trashed it cause I didn’t like it.  I was working on another project, digging through my supplies and came across a chipboard piece I made with my Slice some time ago and low and behold a design came to me.

It’s clean and simple with the chipboard piece, silver heart and arrow rub on with stick on alphabets.  

Love ya!


Birthday card featuring Art Impressions Stamp

I am so happy, I’m going to have a crafty weekend.  I had to work on Saturday but I have all day Sunday and Monday since Monday is Columbus Day HOLIDAY. For me that mean craft, craft and craft some more.  But before I get my craft on, I can finally share two birthday cards I made for a special friend. 

The first card folds back and props up displaying the birthday scene with the focal image surrounded by gifts. I just love it.  This is a 8.5 x 5.5 inch card. I paper pieced the stamped image.

The second card also features an Art Impressions stamp.  I wish I could have all of their stamps. They are just too cute. I enjoy coloring and paper piecing the images.  Such great fun. 


I have quite a few thank you and birthday cards to make so I’m off to get busy. 

Love ya!

I got a new tool

I decided I wanted to begin making my own envelopes so I got the 1 2 3 Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers.  You can make envelopes that can accommodate cards that have dimension, which I love and desperately needed. I get to use beautiful paper and decorate my envelopes however I want. That makes me happy. 

With the punch board you can make envelopes, boxes and bows in many sizes.  I’ve made a few envelopes already and just love it!

Love ya!
