Summer Mermaid

Sharing this lovely mermaid image from Sherri Baldy today.  I just adore her beautiful Bestie stamps.  This image is just perfect for your summertime creations. I turned this card into a Thank You card for some Summertime events as I am often invited to parties and other affairs and I like to send the host a little note afterwards.
I am using some wonderful Turkish lace at the base that makes me think of waves and I have this adorable cat mermaid button that is just TOO cute.  Hope you are having a magical summer.  Be sure and check out Sherri Baldy's amazing stamps at

No Prob-Llama

Thought a little LLama card would be some fun today.  Here's a quick and cute card that I made up when someone gave me a bunch of adorable LLama embellishments.  TOO FUN.  This year for easter, my hubby bought me a hilarious stuffed llama, though, more the shape of a round ball, it has a llama face on it, but definitely is more shaped like an easter egg lol!  Too soft though, so I love it.

Hope you are having a great week.  Drop by tomorrow for a brand new card using new images from Sandra Caldwell!

Have a great weekend everyone.

Be open to change

Here's a large rectangular card, just telling you that it is large so you can understand the size of the image from Unity stamp.  I love the sentiment, it goes perfect with the image, "be open to change." but also, for people like me, who have gone through brain surgery, it definitely has a double meaning.

So, be open to change, like me, it could bring something wonderful.
