March Of The Turtles

I have always been a nature girl. Nothing revitalizes me more than time spent in the great outdoors. And nothing delights me more than an unexpected brush with Mother Nature every now and then. Two weeks ago, I met a friend for lunch. Afterwards, we walked her dog down the path behind the restaurant that leads to […]

WOYWW 7, Cat Chat, Updates

I thought I would start today’s post by sharing a second photograph I took of Tsunami that captures his full reflection in my coffee table – in part, because it’s one of my favorite photographs I’ve taken in a long time, and in part, because you’re going to need something beautiful to feast your eyes […]

Multi-Challenge Christmas Card: Decorated Tree!

It’s hard to believe that three days before Valentine’s Day, I am sitting at home making Christmas cards – but who could resist Susie & Vickie’s Christmas Club Challenge #3, which called for cardmakers to feature Christmas Trees this week? And, as Samantha from ABC Christmas Challenge asks, “What’s a tree without Decorations (and a little Ribbon) too?” So, in my […]

Bah Humbug #5: Holly

Holly Christmas Card

This week’s challenge at Bah Humbug is Holly. For some reason, this was my hardest card to create yet. I’m not sure if I was because I wasn’t feeling particularly Christmasy this week, or because holly elements seemed hard to come by, but I really scrounged through my stash to find elements for this week’s card! Once I found […]

Sir Stampalot’s Moving Challenge

I designed today’s card to celebrate Sir Stampalot’s move to their spacious new shop in Peterborough, UK!  We’ve Moved combines older stash (a My Mind’s Eye Frame Up, a Paper Bliss House, black and white cardstock) with new toys (CTMH’s Around The Block Stamps, CTMH Black Archival and Dye Inks, and Skittles) for a dash of old school charm. If you’d […]
