Getting my Paint on

I needed cards for my mom and two sister's birthdays. I decided to get my paint on:)



Each one is a bit different. I think they will like them. I did fix the cat card changing you to your:) Bad stamping job.

I am still learning but these were fun to do.

Adding these to PaintPartyFriday . Head over there for amazing inspiration!!

Thank you for visiting! Wishing you a happy weekend!

Thinking of you

I made a card for someone who is going through surgery. Pulled out some bright springy papers!

Adding this to Simonsays Send a Card to a Friend Day. I send out an average of one card a week. Some to friends, some to strangers. It is always fun to surprise them with snail mail. 

Thank you for stopping by!


A Mother is Born

My daughter is an amazing woman. She has always been career driven and is currently in an exciting position at the Department of Education for the State of Arizona. However, I have watched all that change since Lauren was born in April. My daughter was born to be a mom. I enjoy watching as she nurtures, plays with and loves this little being.

One of my most prized posessions is  a necklace Jennifer bought for me when she was in middle school. It is a gold filigree heart that reads mommy. She saw it in Kmart in August and told my husband he had to get it for me for Christmas. So he did. I wore that every day since until April 1st when Lauren was born. Then I gifted it to my daughter who now proudly wears it. I knew she would be a wonderful mom but the bond she and her daughter have is truly special. I hope it will always be like the one my daughter and I have.

Of course, Lauren loves to play with the necklace too!

I used this sketch from SketchnScrap



Here is my layout

Watercolor card

I wanted to make a quick get well card for a friend and saw this design on Pinterest. Here is my version


My stamping had an issue and I managed to stick my hand in a wet heart, but I sent it anyway. I hope she likes it.

I am finally getting to work scrapping some of the photos I have taken in the past few weeks. I have more photos than I can ever scrap but I will give it a try!

Saw this sketch over at Stucksketches 



Grabbed some gorgeous G45 papers and went shabby chic which is so out of my box!


Again, I have blurred my granddaughter's gorgeous face per my daughter's wishes not to have her photos out there on line. This was a fun layout to do!

Thanks for visiting and for your kind words. They brighten my day!
