I thought this card fitting for the upcoming year

 So as 2021 comes, Let no one keep you from your journey!

Scarf Cat

Pretend this card says something warm and fuzzy!  Ha, that's what the sentiment on the edges says.  TOO funny.  I just love these Tim Holtz cat theme stamps and the funny saying that they come with.  I also added some stunning flower lace from Turkey that I got while shopping this summer.  Don't you love it?

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are having a great week now.  If you are like me, you are off on that week between the holidays. so be safe and enjoy!

Dear Santa

 Here's a hilarious stamp and sentiment from Tim Holtz. I just love the snarky cat stamps.  There's two different sets of winter theme ones, a set of Halloween theme, one set of just snarky cats, plus this artist has also made stamps for a number of other companies.  TOO funny though are the sentiments included with the Tim Holtz stamps.  I also added some great Turkish lace, both at the bottom and some that I trimmed  up on the top.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

 Sharing this super cute coffee theme card using a wonderful stamp set from called Coffee Love Fanatic.  These adorable coffee cups are actually individual stamps, so you don't have to use theme in a line like I did (and like they appear in the image on the stamp set sheet), you can place them however you would like on your card individually.  I  thought they were super cute like this though.

Hope you have a wonderful coffee filled day.  Drop by and check out their cute stamps and dies.  Don't forget the 15% savings with the code G-27160

It's the big 50!

 It's birthday number 50!  CAN  YOU BELEIVE IT?  I sure can't.  Doctors used to say I wouldn't make it this old because of how much seizures and such I had and that my health was bad.  Thank God for Dr Aboumatar and brain surgeries which stopped my seizures 10 years ago.  I know there is still a chance always that they will come back, but I am grateful always for what I have been given.  Almost 11 years now!

Here's a birthday card that I made to celebrate using a stamp from Unity stamps.

Please be sure to come and celebrate with me in February which is my surgery anniversary.  Every year I celebrate by giving out TONS of wonderful crafting goodies to EVERYONE!!  So mark your calendars and be watching the blog.  Even in January as I will start show photos of all the prizes I have accumulated this year to hand out.  Stay Tuned!!

Winter Girl

 Here's a great Unity stamps girl that comes from one of the Kit of the Months.  I just love getting a great surprise each month in the mail.  It started out as a birthday gift one year but the following year, my husband never cancelled it, so I have been so fortunate to continue to receive it.  How sweet is that?

I thought green was an unusual color for a winter theme card, but I do so love using green sometimes, so I have to match the card to the colors I used on the girl's outfit.  Hope you are staying nice and warm this winter!

Wednesday, December 2, 2020


I thought this card was a cute sentiment for the week since we have just started getting settled in school this year with the new kids who came in November.  I think the kiddos would get a kick out of it.  The fun image and sentiment both come from Taylored Expressions.  I also added some fun lace from Turkiye.  

Hope you all have a great HUMP day, and wonderful finish to this week.
