I hope each of you had a very blessed Easter, I am so sorry I am once again posting at the end of the day....life has just been cra cra at Naylorville lately.  Anyways the above card was made by my good pal Diana T and I wanted to share it with you on this very special Easter day.

Also wanted to share a little Easter fun I had with my two adorable nieces on Friday, they both love art and they love the Pumpkin kits!  So we had a lot of fun making Easter treats for each person that was coming to our Easter picnic today.

Easter Message

Thursday, April 13, 2017


Can you believe that Easter is this Sunday?  This year is just flying by!  The above card I made at card ministry at my Church earlier this year....we get together once a month and make cards to sell and donate to a variety of charities.  The card is made with non-stampin' up! cardstock and accessories but I still wanted to share it because I love the layout and the spring colors!

This one showcases the Easter Message stamp set from the Occasions Catalog.  I just love this stamp set:

Flourishing Phrases

Tuesday, April 11, 2017


Thanks for coming to my blog today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci and you are able to VOTE for my project.

Our theme for this highlight is Weddings!  I have actually had 2 weddings already this year so this was a great theme for me as my card box is now restocked...I made 6 of these cards!!  I choose to use the Flourishing Phrases stamp set, which one of my favorites, the bundle is retiring so if you love it too...get it before it's no longer available to purchase as a bundle.  It will be in the new catalog just not as a bundle.  Here is my project:






Card Recipe:
Stamp Set:  Flourishing Phrases
Ink:  Tip Top Taupe (retiring)
Cardstock:  Very Vanilla, Tip Top Taupe (retiring)  and Falling In Love DSP (retiring and ON SALE)
MISC:  Tip Top Taupe 5/8 mini striped ribbon (retiring), Decorative Label Punch (retiring), Sweetheart Punch (retiring and ON SALE)

Here is the inside I had a few scraps of the DSP leftover so decided to utilize that to decorate the inside of the card:


Here is my paper saving tip, I almost always use the inside layer for a punch or two or a framelit!  I am not sure why the photo is so blurry but you get the general idea, you can see I used these two punches on the outside of the card. 
Wanted to take this opportunity to remind you am giving blog candy away tomorrow!  Here it is and you can read about what you need to do to be entered into the drawing by CLICKING HERE.  





Now please go to Kylie's blog now and check out all the other great ideas and vote for your favorites.  The winner will be highlighted in an international blog hop which I would love to earn a shot at, so if you vote for me I would be very grateful!  

If you need to place an order for some of the items and you don't have a demonstrator or I am your demonstrator CLICK HERE to place your order.  Add hostess code 4Q7TKESJ to your order and I will send you a Thank You card with a sheet of dimensionals!  

Have a great day, ink something cute!
