I love the way this turned out. I had cut out a wine glass some time ago and left it sitting on my desk, not knowing what I would do with it. As I thought about the sketch, I knew it would fit right in.


What great colors for a man's birthday card. Just in time for my son-in-law's birthday! I chose die cuts, stamps and paper from MFT. I love the streamlined look and the colors are sure to be a hit with him.

I had been wanting to make a Valentine with this heart and arrow since I received it earlier in the month. This sketch was just perfect! I used the new paper pack as well.

I was honored to be chosen as Featured Stamper last week. I used the Concord and 9th turnabout stamp using only the blue and aqua colors on white. I cut a circle from a piece of mat black paper so that it would frame the stamped piece. I added a white sparkle "Thanks" and the card was finished.

 Freshly Made Sketch Challenge
I love the simplicity of this sketch. It's a good way to use some of the larger greetings that I have.

I always love doing a card with neutral colors and adding a pop of color. The "Beautiful Bloom" stamp really lends itself to a card like this.

I need several birthday cards this month and this sketch was perfect for a simple card. I think it would be good for a male as well as a female. I love when things come together

I have been working in the Activity office since our director had to head back to IL because of illness. Even though the actual office hours are limited, there are other tasks to do, so my creative juices have been at a standstill. I decided that I must not let that happen, because when I can't create, I don't feel like me!

When I saw these beautiful color choices, it really got my mind busy. They are so beautiful together and I have 3 birthdays this month. I find it is so much easier to make a card with a person in mind, than just making a card. I love when I have an idea and the card turns out even better than I had imagined. That was the case with this one. I hope the recipient feels the same.


Great time for a "Thank You" card. I have many to send. The flap on this one lifts to show the inside sentiment or just a note. I love the style and this was my favorite of the ones that I made.
