Hello Friday Friends,

This world lost a precious man today. My friend Gary was one of a kind...and although I know he is with Jesus, my heart is aching.

I'll be back soon and I'll see you then.

I Miss Your Face


Happy Tuesday!

Stencils are a girl's best friend when all creativity has slipped away. I just couldn't seem to find my way to today's card...until I grabbed this Erin Lee Creative stencil.

Making this card put me into a fall mood and that's a good thing! I love fall.

Happy Halloween to You - Take 2

Happy Friday!

Sometimes if I have a stamp set out already, I try to use it again for the next day or at least for a future project I can get started. The sentiment on this card is the same as yesterday's. But THIS card is made using products exclusively from Pretty Pink Posh.

Since I have a little granddaughter on my list for Halloween cards, I thought I'd make a sweet card instead of a spooky one. I'll save those cards for grandsons this year.

Have a great day and I'll see you Monday!

You Are My Sunshine


Happy Tuesday!

I've been waiting to use my new Honey Bee Sunflower dies and now that I've made one, I want to make so many more...and I'm sure I will!

I wasn't sure how to shade them, so I checked out a video by Laura Bassen and voila! I was able to make a multi colored sunflower!

I am loving this new set, so be prepared for more fantasy colored flowers!
