Today I challenged myself to make the elusive MALE valentine.  I do 10-15 Valentines each year and 20 kid valentine for my granddaughter’s class.  Not sure how that’s going to work this year, but we’ll get it done. So yeah.. the MALE valentine… not too mushy, but reflects the personality of the receiver.  In this […]

I am happy to say that not one person in my immediate family has been positive for COVid.  However, many friends have.  I can’t make cards fast enough. I don’t keep too many sympathy cards in my stash.  I usually only make them when the need calls for it.  I generally think clean and simple […]

~B/W A Cuppa ~

This week we’re doing black and white.  I’ve probably made less than 10 b/w cards in my time.  I THOUGHT I didn’t like them.  I just needed to revisit the challenge.  I really like this. I’ve noticed that my cards are getting simpler these days.  I’ve been making cards for the troops and there are […]

I sort of feel like the holidays (and birthdays/anniversaries) are coming fast and furious.  On the other hand, I do more Valentines than Christmas cards.  And now with granddaughters, I’m in charge of making their class Valentines and treats.  Of course, this year may be a little different. My husband works in the trades and […]

~CAS Thank Yous~

I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas and are preparing for the new year.  I predict that 2021 will be a much better year! This week we’re focusing on clean and simple, easily mass produced thank you cards.  I focused on using scraps from my paper pads.  With no dimensionals, these are easily […]

~Year in Review~

Five days until Christmas.  I have a great deal of things to button up, cook, host, and some rest in there, too.  Now it’s all about the kids/grandkids. This week, we’re doing a year in review.  Each design team member is sharing their top 6 favorite Stamp Simply cards for 2020.  This was a tough […]


  We already know that Christmas is going be different than any we’ve shared in the past.  On a good note, we have a new granddaughter and another new one coming in less than three months.  That always brings more smiles. Unfortunately, we can’t have our normal Christmas Eve with ALL the kids and grands.  […]

~Romans CAS~

~*~*~   Greetings! This week, Sharon challenged us to create a card using stamps for the background and a verse as the focal point.  I am still lightyears away from being a CAS stamper, but I am having fun being challenged.  I will rule the CAS someday! 🙂 It’s December 7th.  A mere 18 days […]


Christmas is hurling towards us at the speed of light.  Normally I would have most of my shopping done.  I’m nowhere near there.  Our Christmas with the kids and grandkids.  With all the Covid hoopla, we’re modifying our get together.  As long as we see the Princess Crew! I’ll be focused on Christmas cards, projects, […]

~Luke 2:11~

Let’s agree that it’s Christmas season, regardless of the date on the calendar.  I’m nearly tapped out already with all the grandkids. Instead of a pile of gifts for the boys and their wives, I’m working on something more interesting and meaningful.  I can’t say more here, just in case! Let’s take a look with […]
