Sweet and Simple Tulip Birthday Card

Welcome to my Corner of the World

Today’s card is another in my Sweet and Simple series where I have set myself a little challenge using a small amount of equipment and supplies – kind of like one of those cookery shows where you are given 3 or 4 ingredients and you have to turn it into a spectacular 4 course meal!

Spring Time Thank You Card Idea

Welcome to my Corner of the World

A couple of weeks ago I designed a Spring themed scrapbook page for a blog hop, I had cut lots of pieces using the Pierced Blooms Dies from the Subtles family of Stampin’ UP! colors.

Butterfly Hydrangea Thank you Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome to my Corner of the World

I always remember my grandmother having hydrangea bushes in her front garden with huge flower heads, I loved them then and love them still. When I came to live in North Texas I planted some in my front garden, although they grew they never really thrived and I never got the big flower heads I remember as a child.

The Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper gives me all the beautiful hydrangea’s I want and I have used it on today’s card. DSP is one of the first things I look at when a new catalog comes out – and I have to admit that over the years I have been a bit of a hoarder. A few years ago I made a promise to myself that I would use more!
