Happy New Year 2018

I wish everyone a very Happy New Year!  After 2017, between riding out Hurricane Irma in Florida and the fires in California (and everything else during the year), my resolution is to stress less about things I cannot change or control.  

So my first holiday in 2018 is Bubble Bath Day, because it is hard to stress with a glorious tub full of bubbles.  Relax and have a great start to the new year!

Happy Thanksgiving 2017

I am so thankful for my life, and it is days like today that remind me of what I am most thankful for.  I wish joy and thankful things in your life.

I used an old Basic Grey Card Kit (October 2013) and morphed the cards into thanksgiving cards by adding a lot of Stephanie Bernard Stamps of Life items.

Halloween 2017

Happy Halloween!

I always love this time of year, and now that I have a black cat, there are so many cute things that make me think of her majesty (lol).

I used my final Krazy Kreations negative kit, this one was meant for a fun daisy card layout, but with a change of a few embellishments, it turned over to spooky so easy!

I added an old embossing folder and stamp set from Stampin Up! (Among the Branches) and an Impression Obsession die called "Boo".  So cute!

Great Ideas in October

October 18 is National Light Bulb Day, a great invention and a great image to show a great idea!  I cannot imagine crafting without a simple light bulb!

This is a solid, I used everything but the kitchen sink, card from Stephanie Bernard.

Hope you come up with some brilliant crafting ideas this month!

September 2017

Two holidays this month, Postal Workers Day on the 7th, and National Rum Punch Day on the 20th! I know, Labor Day was this month as well, but I wanted to celebrate a few of the more unique ones.

A personal thanks to all postal workers, you deliver my cards monthly to all my loved ones!  You truly make a difference in my life.

As far as Rum Punch Day, well it is the end of most of the vacation time lying in the warm sun, so ....

National Hot and Spicy Food Day

Happy August and National Hot & Spicy Food Day! It is a real day, I am not joking.  Of course, it seems like it is just plain hot outside, so the spice is just a bonus, so my card features spice instead of hot (unless you count the paper).

I love using flip it cards, but always end up watching Stephanie Bernard videos to remind myself how to fold them!  Thank goodness she has so many on her website Stamps of Life, or I would be in trouble.
