    Happy Mother’s Day!

    Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom! I do not know how many of you know, but my mom is an artist. Serious, I have paintings of hers in my house. AMAZING!! She has done several mixed media, sculptures and others. I bet you are guessing that is where my “art-ability” comes from? I hate to admit, out loud, it took me over 30 years to find it! So you can see why, just a “simple” card for my mom… will NOT do! Let’s start with the pieces… Using several punches for this card. The small bloom punch from the 2020 Annual Catalog. However at the moment I do not have…

    Toile Tiding DSP for Winter Birthday

    Here is the second Girl’s Night birthday card. Still have winter birthdays on my mind. One member of my team sends a TON of birthday cards each year. I hope to do the same. How do you organize your list?? When do you mail them?? Do you leave the envelope “naked”? See, these are pressing questions, right?? Do you make several at a time?? Are they all different?? Take a look, just changing the color, changes the look. However, the look changes with ribbon too. I know there are some that are made EXTRA special. In addition to all those questions…. would you like to make a “folder” that could…
