Another trip around the sun!

Happiest of birthdays to a dear friend who is my cohort in crafting. She is very dear to me and we share our love of cardmaking and Stamps of Life! Happy Birthday April!! Recent wildfires in Australia had me thinking about all the animals lost-one of which was the koala bears. That was the inspiration for this card.

Stamps of life products used: Koala pudgie stamp and die set, Heart stencil, twine and embellishments.

Who doesn’t love a cup of hot chocolate?

I’ve had a few friends that had mishaps in the last couple weeks. I created this card to send some get well wishes.

Here is a second card I made from the same stamp set-hotchocolate2stamp

Are you excited to see 2020?

However you celebrate NYE-you just can’t skip the excitement surrounding a new year. After Christmas I just wasn’t done with my holiday cards. I created this card for Christmas and then updated it to share with my neighbors to bring some New Year cheer! Be safe and Happy New Year! 🎉🎉🎉

Stamp set by Colorado Craft Company. Sentiments outside and inside from The Stamps of Life.

Happy 22nd birthday!

My baby’s birthday is 12/21 and we do our best to celebrate it in non-holiday fashion. This year was the opening of the CATS movie followed by a visit to Mac Tabby Cafe-where we get to pet and play with adorable kitties that are waiting to be adopted. In the hustle and bustle of Alanna’s college graduation on 12/14 and all the celebrating, I didn’t have time to make her card. Yes! Alanna got a card (with a llama on it) with her presents but not one I made special for her. Today I had time to create her card-so here is her 22nd birthday card. Note: Alannas favorite color is red. ❤️❤️❤️The Stamps of Life products used are:

  • Word standup A2 drop in card base
  • Birthday sentiment
  • Balloon – party animals class die
  • Numbers

Stamp set used is Mama Elephant’s ‘Cats Meow’
