welcome back to my corner of the world.

The Animal Outing Stamp Set has 3 of the cutest little characters, a giraffe, rhino and kangeroo ~ perfect for birthday cards for the ‘littlies’ in our lives.  I have chosen some lovely bright colors and the Giraffe for my card, which gave me a chance to pull out my Watercolor Pencils for a little coloring and blending.

Christmastime is Here ~ part 2

welcome back to my corner of the world

Last week I shared the Christmastime is Here Suite and promised to share another card – once again I have focused on the gorgeous Christmastime is Here Specialty Designer Series Paper – did I say last time that it had gold foil accents on one side? On today’s card I show one side of the paper with the foil accents and flip it over to show the pretty seasonal print on the other!

I just want to remind you though, that this suite is only available while supplies last so please don’t delay – order yours today! 🙂

Magnolia Thank you ~ DSP Panel Card

welcome back to my corner of the world

Magnolias have become so popular this year – we had a Southern Magnolia in our garden at our former house, the blooms were superb but sadly only lasted about a day.  The leaves were a lovely, shiny deep green on the top side and  kinda gingery furry underneath – we loved them until they got into the pool and choked up the pool cleaner!

I have used  the lovely Magnolia Lane DSP for my focal point for my card today which was my thank you card for my  customers who shopped with me for their SU goodies in September.

Breast Cancer Courage Card

welcome back to my corner of the world.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I, as many of you, have friends that have either gone through this journey or maybe currently walking the path,  so this is my card to honor each and every one of them.

This design would work very well for any other the other ‘courage’ ribbons – simply change out the colors to the appropriate one.
