Enjoy Every Day ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you are all doing very well!

A couple weeks ago I made a card using some Maja Designs paper that a dear friend gave to me years ago .. it's about time I found the courage to use them right?!  haha!  I added some metal butterflies covered with paint and glitter that sparkles in person.




Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me .. I really do appreciate it!

Wishing you a beautiful day and hope to see you again soon!

Birthday Wishes ...

Hello there!  I hope you are all doing well and gearing up for another fun filled weekend!

A special friend of mine is celebrating her Birthday and so I made her a tea card along with a flower filled cupcake.  I really did have so much fun making this for her!  She's already received it ... so I can now post it.  :)

Hummingbirds ...

Hello there!  I hope you all have been having beautiful days and enjoying the longer hours.

I made a card using some Graphic 45 papers .. and these hummingbirds reminded me of when they come around in our yard.  Our dog Max normally barks at the bigger birds .. but for some odd reason doesn't bark at the smaller ones.  And there was one time when a hummingbird flew so close to Max's face and just hovered staring at him.  It was the funniest thing as they both stared at one another .. I think both trying to figure out what they were.  :)  Wish I'd had a camera in hand as it lasted quite a bit of seconds.





Thank you so very much for visiting me and I hope you are all doing very well!  See you again soon!

Christmas Shakers ...

Hey Ya's!  Big day coming up!  Are you ready?!

I really did have a lot of fun making Christmas cards this year.  These were all shaker cards except the one in front with the flowers .. I know she enjoys flowers a lot.  ;)  I used a lovely stamp given to me from a special friend on the shaker cards with the multicolored background which I applied white embossing powder.  




Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me in such a busy time of the year .. I truly do appreciate it!  Wishing you all a very safe and beautiful week .. and hope to see you again before The Big Day!  ;)

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  Goodness .. it's only a couple days away!  Creeps up on you huh?  lol.

My little big boy Bodhi will be on vacation .. that will be nice as well.  Yup .. he's not just my "little" boy any longer.  He's my "little big boy" now.  hehe.  He sure is growing up fast .. and tall too!  ;)

Well, I really am enjoying making Christmas cards .. whether it be with colourings or just decorating it with flowers and lace .. I'm truly enjoying it.

Joy to the World ...

Hey Ya's!  Hope you're having a wonderful start to yet another week closer to Christmas!

The weather here has finally cooled off somewhat .. and I'm enjoying it a lot.  But can you believe we're supposed to go back up to 70 degrees later this week?  What is happening?!  Isn't that a tad bit warm for the ending of November?  HmMmmM ... 

Well, I made another Christmas card .. using some Graphic 45 papers .. and that silver frame in the center is from Hobby Lobby ...






Thank you so very much for visiting me and I wish you all a most BEAUTIFUL week!  Hope to see you again soon!
