Pinkfresh Noteworthy Frames

I have two cards to share, both use the Pinkfresh Noteworthy Frames Die.  This die is perfect for tucking little things behind (like these flowers made with a Paper Smooches die) as it cuts the top and bottom but not the sides.

Thanks for visiting today!

Happy Heart Day

Happy Valentines Day!

Here are a few of the many valentines I made this year.  Each is a very different style.  The first is floral and elegant with vellum and silver heat embossing.

The next is cute and whimsical.

And the last might be my favorite - it's just "fun".

Have a great day!

Happy New Year, 2019

Wow!  I cannot believe that it is already a new year.  I'm not really sure what has happened to the past few months.  Well, OK, maybe that's not exactly true.  I do know where they've gone (in part).  I've been dealing with some very frustrating medical issues for several months, and have had a difficult time trying to get the things done that I want to.  One of those is posting cards on my blog.  I did get some card making done before the holidays, so maybe I can get some of those cards posted soon.

After Christmas I did need thank you cards for some of the amazing gifts I received.  I needed them to be super simple and quick to make.  One of my gifts was beautiful handmade paper from The Paper Source.  I really wanted the focus to be on this paper with its shimmery copper detail.  So I really just added a layered thanks diecut (Simon Says Stamp CZ Designs) using copper colored paint chips and some copper thread.  I do apologize for this very poor picture- you can't see how beautiful the paper really is.


 Thanks so very much for visiting, and Happy New Year!

Pugsgiving 2018

Last weekend was Pug Rescue of Florida's (pugrescueofflorida.org) big fall fundraiser - Pugsgiving.
This is always a really fun time that raises a lot of money to help fund the medical bills of rescued pugs and brings together potential adoptee families with adoptable pugs.  It is a fun day of activites all centered around pugs and their families - games, costume contests, raffles, silent auctions, and lots of pug themed shopping.  This was our fourth year selling our cards to help raise money.  100% of the sale price of our cards goes to Pug Rescue.  And we did really good.  We raised almost $850 in that one day alone, from our card sales.

Here are some pictures of our displays.

Have a great day!
