Good Morning! It's a beautiful day here today! Finally able to open my windows and get some fresh air in here! My cat is happy because she loves to lay in the window and watch all the activities of the birds and small animals around here.
Today's card is bright & cheery. I used punches to create my flowers. They are supposed to be daffodils... The sentiment is from Paper smooches. Love that font!!
I popped up the tag a little for dimension and used an EK Success punch for the wavy border. Added a little bee brad to finish it off. It looks like a "happy" card to me...makes me smile. Hope it lifts your spirits too. Have a wonderful day!

Well, Spring has officially started at our house. Came home from stamping with a friend to an ant party in the kitchen. They were everywhere! UGH!!! Finally found where they were congregating..under our water cooler. Linnie was eating them as fast as she could. Yuck!! They are the little tiny ones and she was fascinated with them. They were marching on the counter and in the sink. They weren't there when I left...
Boy what fun on a Monday afternoon! Hee hee. Hopefully I have them under control now.
Just had to share...

Hello. Isn't this little monster cute? He is from one of the sets by Kim Hughes from Paper Smooches. I paper pieced his body. I used a Darice Embossing folder for the background. This one is one of my new favorites! Can you tell I like polka dots?! Thanks for stopping bu. Come back soon!

Hello! Happy Easter!
I finally had some time to create last night. Woo Hoo! I just got the Build a Blossom punch & Stamp set from Stampin Up. I had a lot of fun with them. My cards actually look so much better in person. Its too dark & dreary out to get a nice picture. I think I like the blue one & the red/coral one best. Thanks for stopping today. Have a great day. Hope you get to spend it with the ones you love. Ta ta!

Happy Saturday! It is gray & gloomy here in Ohio. Raining! But that's a great day to craft right?!
These are 2 cards I have made for my class. I really like how the tulip one turned out! The words are on a plastic sheet that I mounted behind the cut out window. I also used a little creamy chalks on top of the coloring to give it a little shimmer.
Thanks for peeking today. Have a great day and Happy crafting!

Hello! I'm back!!!! Did you miss me? I missed you!
I was in Tennessee helping my brother recover from his 5 surgeries. Poor guy! He still has a way to go but he is at least able to get around a little and do some things for himself now. I think he was a little glad to see me go so he could have some "alone" time. I'm sure it's hard having someone there 24/7 when you are used to living alone. I am glad though that I was able to go and spend time with him and to help him get back on his feet. Didn't see much of anything while I was there except the few places we had to go. I will say people in the south are some of the most friendly people I have met! Even perfect strangers say Hi. How are you? in the grocery store or where ever you go.
Well, I hope to get back to crafting soon, maybe even tonight...I have missed it!
Thanks for checking in and I will have something for you to see quite soon!

Look at my little cutie pa-tootie! She is the love of my life! This was right after she came home from the groomers. The bows only lasted a few hours before she pulled them out. Wish she would leave them. They are so sweet. At least I got a few pictures before. Have a great day!
