    As promised, step three, Happy Birthday

    Happy Birthday, Korine… Wanting to be sure not to go with the red, white and blue theme for this card. When you have a birthday around a holiday, I really try to make the card extra special. Now, some will say, what is the big deal. However, mom always told stories about her holiday birthday’s. She was getting gifts in Christmas wrappings, etc. So that is why I try to be aware of how that must feel. First, let us not miss that cute little slip, topped with ribbon. What would you use it for? I use mine to mark my calendar or even my book page. I know that…

    Happy 4th of July to you and your family.

    Happy Birthday America! Sounds kinda funny saying Happy Birthday to a Country, but… That really is what today is all about. How as a new country “we” decided “we” wanted freedom from Tierney and Oppression. Those freedoms were as the result of many brave men and women. Freedoms that at times get taken for granted. As a Marine mom, I have a small understanding of the drive that it takes to be brave and go off to fight for those freedoms. The worry of a family when loved ones go on faith and belief that our country stands for Freedom. These freedoms that are still alive today, gratefully!! Hugs and…

    From my Heart and Paper Pumpkin – Day 8

    Here is a where Paper Pumpkin meets some beautiful DSP! The stamps are done the Paper Pumpkin. Using the Stamparatus to be sure that the hearts all line up! Then add the Happy Valentine’s Day to the last one. The tag used the scalloped tag topper and triple punch. The DSP is different sizes 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch. Try the different pattern together to get the look that you like. Top it with twine, like this or use some ribbon. No Bling is necessary because the DSP has a foil look on one side. AND you can use this tag for a gift, flowers or even a pretty box!…
