Happy August Birthday to my Facebook and Blogging friends.  This card was so easy to make…a little embossing with Country Floral  Embossing Folder, Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon, fussy cutting from the Bird Ballet DSP and Iridescent Sequins.  Oh and that well-used branch die cut from Colorful Seasons. EASY PEASY!

Interested in having this card on the buffet????  How many should I prepare???

Hello Stampers!

Just checked in on Amy and the other trip winners in Alaska!  They look like they are having a wonderful time…the scenery is just breathtaking. Isn’t Ted the lucky guy to be able to enjoy this trip with her? …. so deserving!


Just sharing the Hydrangea Projects I worked on last week with some details. Keeping the promise to share the details of these 3 projects  made with a hostess stamp set from 2016 – ” Best Thoughts”.  The flower on “BEAUTIFUL DAY ” stamp set would work as well.  I stamped the flower in Momento Black Ink and used the Stampin’ Blends Markers to get a more artistic quality blending.  Blending light and dark shades of the same color create lovely shading with no streaks and instant drying.  The flower in Beautiful Day stamp set is also quite elegant when Gold Embossed first then colored.  Thick Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock works well with the markers.  I used pink pirouette and Granny Apple Green with sentiment cut with the Pretty Label Punch.  Ribbon is 3/8 “ Powder Pink shimmer ribbon with 5/8″ Polka Dot Tule Ribbon over top.  I also layered some of the same ribbon underneath the label and used dimensional for the label.  Butterfly was stamped on Blooms and Bliss DSP and then hand snipped.  I like stamping butterflies on DSP paper…no coloring involved and they always look GREAT!

The greens in the other two cards were a combination of Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green and Olive Green….working and coloring until I had just the right amount of color.  I did the same with Highland Heather, Pacific Point and Blueberry Bliss ink pads with a blending pen.  I also used Very Vanilla cardstock instead of pure white  on the blue hydrangea card.

DSP SALE REMINDER:   Ends July 31st (that’s Tuesday!)

The best and most beautiful things cannot be seen  or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart.




Just a quick hello to all my Blog followers AND I do apologize if you get this message more than once but I feel committed to this request.  As we get to more interesting ages, milestones in life become more important and need to be recognized.  Please read the post below and make a card for this dear lady turning 90 on Tuesday…it would make her day to be flooded with cards.


  I encourage you to send the LOVE this week or even next and then send me a copy of your card creation. Afterall,  this months’ Stampin’ Up Theme is “Share what we do!”  (send LOVE in the mail!) This is the message I received from Pastor Dana Erbeck.

This lady doesn’t know it but her daughter Barbara Palmer is requesting a CARD SHOWER for her Moms 90th birthday on May 15. Even if you have never met her but know me & trust me, this lady is a gem– please send her a card. If you are her friend from past to present please send a card too. We are hoping she will get at least 90 cards! Thanks in advance. Her address is:
Betty Pittman, 717 Syme Ave.,  Glenwood City, WI 54013.


Let’s turn this into something special for you, too.  If you submit a picture of your card to me by email, snail mail, PM, or some means of which I am unaware, I will have a prize for the winner!!!  Here is mine with a slot inside to tuck in a bookmark or a little something special.


Thanks for going out of your way to make Betty Pittman feel the LOVE!
Be blessed for your good works!  It’s what we do for OTHERS that counts.
THANKS for stopping by.
