January 27, 2020 Sea Turtle


I recently received a new assignment  with Chemo Angels, a young boy.  Well in going through my stacks of cards I had NO boy cards so I was scrambling to make a few boy cards this past weekend.  I have been a Chemo Angel for at least 15 years and usually am assigned adults but I have a little boy that is receiving chemo and radiation.

I "cased" my card from my dear friend Donna  last post.  I used different sea turtle stamp - one that I bought a couple of years ago at the Stamp and Scrap convention held in Collinsville IL. every summer.  I am really trying to meet a goal set January 1 to "use" some of my NBUS!!!  This stamp set came with die cuts  and I added a few die cuts of sea plants etc. that I have in my die collection.

I sent the second card to him last week with a pack of stickers so besides making some boy cards I had to go shopping and get a few boy goodies to include in his weekly mail.  I'm trying to coordinate the card with the little giftie -not always possible.  I had a lot of fun shopping last week for this little guy.

January 22, 2020 Anything Goes

This week over at The House that Stamps Built our challenge is Anything Goes, and sometimes those can be a real puzzle for me.  But I finally decided on a Valentine (for hubby), using 1201-I Be Mine using just the Be Mine portion of the stamp and 6710-J Keys.  I used two die cuts and a punch on this card - love the open hearts on top - then cut a medium heart and embossed the keys in silver, and on the bottom border that I used a punch on I used my sentiment.  Since this will be hand delivered I added a bit of "bling", some pearls on the border punched element and then I "found" in my stash some heart charms and I thought this would help balance the space in the heart - so used it tied with some red/white bakers twine.

January 15, 2020 Photo Inspiration


This weeks challenge is the photo inspiration - and I immediately thought of rosettes - (which I had not done is a really long while). I choose some papers that I thought matched the colors in the photo inspiration - then made 3 rosettes.  I then used 10318-D Leaf Solid Large and 10322-H Stem Solid making each rosette flower a stem and leaves.  Needed some grass so used my grass punch for the grass border.  For my sentiment 6526-E Simple Pleasures.
I enjoy making calendars in January for my daughter, chemo buddy, and one for self. I had picked up the calendars back in June (and yes I remember where I put them).  So I made an easel card and used the calendar for my stop.  This one is in the mail already to my chemo buddy, and I have the rosettes made for mine and dear daughter.

January 1, 2020 Designer Choice

Wow - my first card posted for 2020.  Where did last year go???  Anyway best wishes for a Happy New Year to everyone visiting.

This month over at The House that Stamps Built our first Wednesday of the month is Designer Choice - and this month it was me.  My challengewas to use a tamp that reminded you of your childhood, or brought back childhood memories.

My mother made all of my clothes as well as hers - and this dress reminds me of a dress she made me for a piano recital when I was 10.  In fact my dress was almost the same print,  I used images:
     9307-L Dress Form
     9314-E So Special
      9318-B Spool of Thread 

I stamped the spool of thread in different colors around the frame.  I then paper pieced the dress, stamped just the words So Special from the sentiment So Special and then added some embellishments. The scissor die is new - (isn't it cute) so needed buttons and some thread. 


I remember having to try on the dress several times before it was done - I hated the pins sticking me.  Then I had to stand up straight and still while she pined up the hem. Was always proud of my "wardrobe" my mom made for me.

December 25. 2019 Merry Christmas


Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas - and remember the reason for the season.  For this challenge Anything Goes from The House that Stamps Built 
I chose to go with this cute snowman 4715-K Snow  Light.   He is so versatile - can not only be used during the holidays but how about a winter birthday.  I colored him with prisma color pencils and copic markers.  I had some really cute snowmen DP which went perfectly and then a red doily just to add some color. 

Sending best wishes for a Blessed Christmas Day spent with family and friends.

December 20, 2019 - No Peeking

Is she not adorable???  I tend to lean to the whimsy in stamps and this one sure caught my eye.
