How’s your day going? No better way to end the day than making a card and posting it on your blog. Some people can’t believe how I fit this all in, but after a full day of work I find it rather relaxing to make a card. Normally I already have a layout planned and after a few tweaks a card is usually born. Todays card is for the CanYouCaseIt… Read More »


Hi there, how is everything going with you? Do any stamping or crafting lately? This Sunday morning I was busy with my Sunday stampers and took a nice nap in the afternoon once I put away all the supplies.  When stamping is at my house we seem to use soooooo many supplies, best I guess that’s the advantage to the stampers of been at my house. In the evenings I’ve… Read More »

Butterfly Birthday

Happy Monday, hope you had a nice weekend. For me Saturday was busy with running errands and visiting friends, Sunday was busy with some housework and moving all the retiring product out of my main stamping area and marking the catalog to know which stamp sets, punches, embossing folders, thinlit and framelits I have, what about you do you do that? I found it helpful so I don’t accidently order… Read More »


Well the weekend is finally here. I sure had hoped to sleep a little longer this morning, after getting to bed at 2:30am,  but the boys (Bandit & Baron) had other plans.
