Simple Birthday

I am probably one of the few people that will admit to liking cloudy, raining days. Everyone loves the sun-shiny days when you can get outside....it brightens our mood....and we can see all the dust on the furniture. I love those days too, but then I feel so guilty about sitting in my dark basement at my craft table making cards all day....on a day like today...not so much. So on the agenda for today ~ get some groceries, run some errands, make some cards. This card I made a while ago, just never posted it. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day.

Easel card

The lady I work with asked me to make a card for her mother-in-laws 80th birthday. So after some blog searching and checking out the tutorials on Splitcoast I decided to try my hand at an easel card. They are actually quite easy to make, just a lot more 'card' space to fill up. She was pleased with it, and if I'm allowed to say so, so was I. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!

Put some spring in your step!

Goodmorning! This morning I woke up to the sound of birds chirping and singing outside my window. What a beautiful way to wake up. So much better than that flock of crows that sat in the trees last year about this time....with their screeching 'get up, get up'. That made me think of us as people...some of us have beautiful singing voices and then there are those of us who sound like a bunch of old crows!! But God gave us all our voices...and isn't it nice to know that He loves to listen to us sing. It's all beautiful to His ear. So find something to sing about today!! As for the card...Ribbit...ribbitt!!

Tulips in the garden, tulips in the park....

....but the tulips I like best are the .....tulips in the wooden shoe! ( I think the rhyme goes...'are the two lips in the dark!') Love purple tulips! At our old house we had deep purple coloured tulips and peachy-coral tulips come up every spring. They were so beautiful. This is just another card for my box at work. Thanks for looking. Have a great day. Hopefully the rain we are expecting will wash away all the snow....and wash my van at the same time!!

Simple Sympathy

Last week I needed some sympathy cards and since I didn't have any in my stack, it was time to get to work. So I made 4 of this one, mailed the ones I had to and now have a couple for my box at work. The stamp is from SU More Petal Prints, and I used brocade blue and sage shadow ink and paper. The stamping was the easy part...it's all that paper cutting and layer that takes time. But it was time well spent. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day.

Bad Blogger!

That's me!....Bad, bad blogger! It's not that I haven't been making cards....I just haven't been updating my blog while doing so. And because some of the cards are repeats......Well really, how many cards with windmills and wooden shoes and tulips do you want to see?! But I have to fill up my box to take back to work. Looks like it is going to be another beautiful warm sunny day. Enjoy!
