Over the Top

Why do you buy your clothes? In the last six months to a year, I find myself buying tops to please a friend. Doesn't that seem silly? But I have an aging friend WilloDean who enjoys anything "sparkly." She has Dementia, and even when nothing else sparks her, the shiny does it! More often than not, she'll ask me if she made it. I of course agree and tell her she did a beautiful job.

A closing somber thought, I was heartbroken to hear of the tragic news that Steven Curtis Chapman lost his daughter. I'll keep him and his family in my prayers, praying that the God of all comfort tends to them in this exceptionally difficult situation.

Tart & Tangy

Just a small set for a coworkers birthday. Pretty much the usual as you've seen on other blogs.

All SU: Tart and Tangy, Summer Picnic Designer Paper.

Have you ever made a card literally piece by piece / day by day? I bought this cute PENNY BLACK stamp before Easter. Stamped it weeks ago in black, colored much like stamp was colored on the wooden block. Ruined the bird so I cut it off with my Craft Lite Cutter. Mounted on a Pixie Pink piece ~ cuttle bugged. Used the ever popular SU polka dot background stamp on Gable Green with the SMILE stamp from the Dare to be Darling set.
Piece together a great Tuesday!

What's not to love about the "bug"?

My friend recently bought a cute VW bug. When I came across this stamp set, it seemed impossible not to buy it. This card was so much fun to make! (I might keep it and start her "set" all over again!)

Mother's Day

This is the card I ended up making for my Mom. The colors match the wrapping of the gift. I bought the ALL HOLIDAYS stamp set, it came in the box but mysteriously enough, I've misplaced the entire set. So I used a sentiment from the ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS set. My mom is fab but I don't think she reads the blog so it's ok to post it as I mail it.

Tempting Turquoise, Pixie Pink and Gable Green
