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!
Paper kit: Krazy Kreations
Stamps: Magnolia (Bathtub), Amy R Stamps ( Magical Wishes)
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.

The temperatures are rising in California, it must be June. There are lots of birthday in the summer, so thought I would share a birthday card this month.
I used another of the Krazy Kreations Negative Card Kit - basically a kit that can be used with the negative of their peel off stickers. However, I didn't have any peel offs to use, so I came up with a different idea for the kit. So handy to have some of those kits on hand!

I have been blessed in my life being related to some wonderful nurses - their hard work and dedication is amazing. So to all those nurses, both related to me or those related to somebody else, thank you for all the work you do and have done.
Between vacation days, holidays and general busy-ness at both work and home, I forgot to post any cards this month. I have my cards ready to go for May, plus I am taking on on-line card class, so I am sure there will be more activity in the next month!
Here is a few I actually did, sorry for the delay:
Ingredients: Stamps of Life (Blessings Collection), CTMH (Spring Critters)

I am not a big fan of marshmallow, just a little bit is fine as long as there is chocolate and graham crackers involved. However, I happen to have several members of my family that thrive on plain marshmallow and they will eat marshmallows straight out of the bag. Naturally, their favorite marshmallow is of the PEEPs variety. This card is in celebration of their favorite treat.
Simon Says Stamp came out with the perfect line of stamps, and paired with WOW embossing powder and Doodlebug Paper, the cards were so easy to make.

Wow, it is already the second month of the new year - and time for valentines!
A while ago, I was at a Krazy Kreations retreat, and they were selling negative card kits - kits that used the negative of their peel off stickers. I did not have the stickers, but thought, I can do something will all the paper and goodies in the kit. So I added a stamp from the Greeting Farm, reworked the layout a little, and voila, happy Valentine's Day!
