FMS163 – Happy Birthday

Note to self – when you hear on the news there is a chance for icy conditions, pay attention when walking out the front door.  Saturday was not as productive as I had hoped.  I was up rather early for a Saturday, ran a load of wash, showered, had breakfast and started to help decorate the sun porch when I had a bad sinus headache hit so I took some… Read More »

Christmas Greetings

Happy Friday to me and Wednesday to you.  If you wonder why I am saying Happy Friday to me is because I am off work Thursday and Friday so that I can turn my house into a winter wonderland and work on some Christmas cards I need to mail out.  Scary to think that in 5 weeks Christmas will be here.  I have been looking at all the cards I… Read More »

Gentle Peace

Happy Friday, welcome to the weekend!  Not sure about where you live but here it’s cold and there are snowflakes in the air. Luckily no snow is sticking around, just hitting the ground and melting!  We have a husky and he is loving this weather, doesn’t want to even come in the house most of the time. Earlier this week I received the new photopolymer stamp set “Gentle Peace” and… Read More »

Butterflies inside & out

Yesterday I shared with you the photo of the cards my Sunday Stampers made. Today I thought I would tell you about the Butterfly card inside and outside.  Yes you read correctly, inside and out!  I have a tendency not to stamp much more than a sentiment on the inside, but on this card, inside butterflies are on the outside, I wanted to make sure they were on the inside… Read More »

“Lovely” Christmas Card

Happy 1/2 way through the Week!  The other day I thought of the stamp set “Lovely as a Tree” one of the first Stampin Up sets I purchased and how I had not used it for a while.  So tonight while watching the CMA Awards (loved Jason Aldean’s performance), I made the card below using the stamp set. The card would be great for a mass production card, as it is easy to… Read More »


Welcome to the beginning of the work week.  Hopefully that extra hour of sleep yesterday is not dragging you down today. Sunday was a rather productive day for me, I spent about 4 hours organizing my craft space.  Need to get started on holiday cards and its a lot easier when things are organized. My card for today is a design by Rita from Freshly Made Sketches, you can see… Read More »


Good morning, hopefully you all enjoyed that extra hour of sleep that night, I know I did.  The Christmas movies started on the Hallmark channel and let’s just say I was up a little to long last night. Funny how I can watch the same movie again and still enjoy it, something about the holidays – I just love them. Todays card is for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch… Read More »


Happy Saturday, hope you are enjoying your weekend.  This morning I went to the annual “Farkleberry Craft” Show to check out the crafts. I always enjoy seeing what others do. One women was selling scissor holders with a magnetic backing, I thought about how I misplace my scissors in my craft room and thought with this holder I can have them on my filing cabinet so I picked a cute dog patten, now hopefully… Read More »

Stained Glass Blended Bloom

Happy Tuesday, hope you are having a good week. Today I thought I would share with you and cool technique I found on You Tube over the weekend, “Stained Glass”. I took the Blended Bloom stamp, inked it with black StazOn ink and stamped it on a piece of Window Sheet. Next I gave it a few minutes to make sure it was completely dry, turned the window sheet over… Read More »
