You're My Superhero


This card is for a young lady named Emma.
Emma has been battling a brain tumor for quite a while now
and just recently had another surgery.
She is a remarkable person, and
I thought Super Girl would be perfect for her.

Let's Fiesta!


This stamp set is from PTI and is called Let's Fiesta!  
I was in love at first sight because of  the glorious colors.
This would be perfect for a Cinco de Mayo birthday!


For the background, 
I made a stencil with the center die in the Shape Shifters Square 4 die set.


While the stamps and dies are PTI,
 the glorious color is all Gina K. Designs.

Thank you


I watched a video by Arjito Sepaha Singh on no line coloring using colored pencils. Click on her name for a link to her blog.  She is AMAZING!  She makes everything look so easy.  I worked for over an hour trying to do this technique and guess what?  I can't do it.  I've come to the conclusion that I should only buy stamps that are one or two step stamping.


I pulled out the Layered Daisies stamp set from Gina K. Designs, (It's a two step process) and some of the new colors from the most recent release.  I used Barely There for the card base.  The big daisy was stamped first with Barely There and then by Peach Bellini.  The center is Chocolate Truffle.  The second daisy was stamped with Peach Bellini and then Tomato Soup.  The third daisy was stamped second generation stamping with Peach Bellini and then Tomato Soup.  I, also, did some second generation stamping using Fresh Asparagus and the leaves.

Happy Birthday to You


I had some time to play today,
 so I pulled out a sweet set from Gina K. Designs called BoHo Flowers.
I've had this set for quite awhile and it's about time it got inky.


I started by taking a piece of white card stock
and with Bubblegum and Wild Wisteria ink
 I used the smooshing technique to make the paper
 I needed for my flowers and butterfly. 
 I used the Petite Flourish stamp to make the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

To Have and To Hold

My husband retired on February 1st and everything has changed.  He is home all of the time.  Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE having him home.  We are used to doing everything together and it has been nice to not have to plan everything around his work schedule.  I need to get over feeling guilty about spending time in my craft room, though.  I know when the weather is better he will be outside in his wood shop and doing other things.

Today he went to lunch with some of his retiree friends, so I had some time to myself.  I ran quickly to my craft room and created this card.


I pulled out some new sets from PTI that I haven't had time to play with yet.
I, also, wanted to get away from pinks and reds,
 so pulled out some beautiful shades of yellow with touches of orange and green.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Sending Big Bear Hugs


This is a CASE of one of Betsy Veldman's beautiful cards.  I was pressed for time and this design was very easy to mass produce.


I am loving this little bear!  The set comes with several little things he can hold in his paws and makes it perfect for many occasions.

You're Still the One

When I saw the sentiment "You're Still the One" on the MFT site, I was so excited!  My husband and I love the "Oldies" songs and years ago a group named Orleans had a hit called "You're Still the One."  I knew this would be perfect for my hubby's Valentine.


I love the Heart Art set from MFT.  The hearts remind me of conversation hearts.  I stepped away from the traditional red, pink and white and decided to go with a softer color palette.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Your kind comments are always appreciated.

You're Still the One

We've been together since way back when
Sometimes I never want to see you again
But I want you to know after all these years
You're still the one, I want whisperin' in my ear

You're still the one I want to talk to in bed
Still the one that turns my head
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

I looked at your face everyday, but I never saw it 'til I went away
When winter came, I just wanted to go
(Wanted to go)
Deep in the desert, I longed for the snow

You're still the one that makes me laugh
Still the one that's my better half
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one that makes me strong
Still the one I want to take along 
We're still having fun
And you're still the one
(Yes, you are)

Changing, our love is going gold
Even though we grow old, it grows new

You're still the one that I love to touch
Still the one and I can't get enough
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one who can scratch my itch
Still the one and I wouldn't switch
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You are still the one that makes me shout
Still the one that I dream about
We're still having fun
And you're still the one

You're still the one
Yeah, still the one
We're still having fun
And you're still the one
