I made an easel card!

I have been wanting to try this technique for a while. This is going to become a favorite of mine. Splitcoast stampers website has some fabulous tutorials on all sorts of card making techniques and Beate is a fabulous teacher. I've had these instructions for a while now but finally got a chance to try one. I think they will become additive! Can you see Easter cards in the future?

Happy Valentines' Day!

Its time to spread some love. I always try to give a little something to the grandchildren for Valentines Day. Two years ago it was the Target mailboxes, last year it was slider cards so this year I decided to do cute toppers for goodie bags. The girls bags have scraps left over from calenders I made last year and the heart is from Martha Stewart punch as well as a fiskar border punch. The boys bags have the red heart and left over scraps from Christmas cards! I love to find projects that utilize my scraps. I can't wait to see the kids faces when I give them their bags of love!!!

I’m out of the closet!

Here I am!!! That’s my other half! I’m usually the one taking pics so this is one of the only ones I like. Most of the time if I do happen to be in a picture it always has me being goofy with the grandkids! Fran and I happen to be in the same colors but it wasn’t intentional. It seems the longer we are married  the more we think alike, it really is scary sometimes!
