So, how about that weather!?  We were at 80 degrees a few days ago and now we’re stuck at 40 with snow on the way.  I’m not sure what season it really is! Sadly, I have several friends/family members who are dealing with some really heavy stuff.  They all live in different states, so my […]

Just moments after Mother’s Day and I’m already busy with Father’s Day cards.  I need several of them this year.  As the grandbabies start to appear, their daddies are needing celebrating. I’m super impressed with my sons and their skills as dads.  I don’t know that I’m surprised.  Their dad is a great father and […]

What a wonderful weekend it’s been!  First, I should tell you that May is always a difficult month for me.  My mom passed in May of 1992 and with her birthday and Mother’s day also in May, it has typically been a gloomy month for me.  Last May, it all changed.  It was my first […]

I am officially old.  This past week we received a graduation announcement for our great-niece.  How the heck did that happen?! Her school colors are patriotic blue/red.  Since the graduation is at the end of May, these colors are perfect.  Americana at it’s finest.   I made a tiny tassel with embroidery floss.  Since I […]

Mother’s Day has been an emotional one for the last 27 years.  That’s when I lost my own mom.  My Mother-in-Law passed in 2014.  For the last 5 years, I’ve just not wanted to make Mother’s Day cards. Then last year, it all changed.  Two of my daughter in laws gave us granddaughters, so now […]

~You & Me~

Today, I’m counting on my husband not reading my blog.  I’m sure he doesn’t!  Our 37th anniversary is fast approaching, so I put this little card together for him.  I have to say, my hubby keeps every single card I’ve ever given him.  Awwww! I picked the Farmhouse line of stamps/dies for this fun card.  […]


Coffee and I have a love/hate relationship.  While I enjoy my morning coffee on the patio, watching the sun come up, I secretly pray that the warm golden liquid would bring me energy.  Unfortunately, it just makes me sleepy.  Not fair. But, let’s face it… people love coffee.  I love sending coffee gift cards.  It’s […]

~*~*~ Let’s talk coffee.  I didn’t start drinking coffee until I was in my late teens.  Back then there were no fancy flavored creamers.  We used either half n half or milk.  Coffee then was more of a social drink, like over a conversation with my mom.  Then my hubby came along and he was […]

I sort of feeling I need to apologize or something for this week’s very simple card. You see, yesterday morning, my youngest son and his wife and baby girls put Colorado in their rear view mirrors and headed off to a new adventure in New Mexico.  You bet that this grammy is missing my kids/grands […]

Are you ready for new stamps and dies??!!  We have two sentiment stamp sets (Mercy and Grace), with just gorgeous scripture AND a new die set of crosses. We’re just a month out from Easter and these sets are so perfect for Easter (but also sympathy, thinking of you, etc). I chose to work with […]
