Simon Says Stamp | Lots of Glittery Love - Hi there! When I was a kid, I would spend HOURS painstakingly choosing and addressing little valentines for the kids in my grade school classes.

You Shine -   Hi there! I don’t know about you, but I just love it when I have unexpected free time.

I was in the mood to make something… More...
Spellbinders | A2 Filigree Marquis | Thinking of You - Hi everyone! Today’s card makes me think of summer!

Happy Birthday, Hot Stuff! - Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing a quick and easy birthday card. This one was “born of necessity” as I am WAAAAYYYYY  behind on making birthday cards and needed to put one together in a flash (shhhh, don’t tell, but I’m even further behind on sending them)! For this card, I used the Taylored Expressions Layering Candles stencil set with a… More...
Simon Says Stamp | Love Garden Sentiments | Thanks -   Hi there! Today I’m back with another card using the new Love Garden Sentiment stamp set from the Simon Says Stamp “To The Moon” release. I realized that I needed to stock up on a few Thank You cards – especially after the holidays – and I am still in awe of the sentiments in this set. I kept… More...
Spellbinders | Garden Shutters Collection – Sending My Love - Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing another card I made using the Primrose Heart Façade die set that was just released by Spellbinders as part of their new Garden Shutters Collection by Becca Feeken.

Merry Christmas And Happy Holidays! -   Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season! Today I’m sharing the Christmas card I made for (nearly) everyone on my Christmas card list this year. It’s a fairly simple card, but I just love the peaceful city scene.
