I've always loved seeing PIANO CARDS made by others, and wanted to make one for my upcoming CHRISTMAS CARD WORKSHOP. I was in the middle of a busy week and hurriedly put this card together... But I woke up in the middle of the night and realized that when the card is opened, there was not a solid white area to write on! So I went back to the drawing board (my stamp room) and started over! This is my Piano Card #2... The new and improved Piano Card, plus the fact that I come from a musical family, contributed... Continue reading

JULY FOURTH in the U.S.A., is a federal holiday commemorating the adoption of the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE on July 4, 1776, by the Continental Congress. Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, barbecues, picnics, baseball games, family reunions, and more. Our family always gets together for this holiday. We start with breakfast, and stay until the last firework is shot off near midnight! Our family circle is broken this year because one of our grandsons is in the military, serving in Afghanistan. Freedom is not free. Thank you, James. Linda Aarhus, Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, Vancouver, WA SaveSave Continue reading

I have six new cards to show you, but my computer is on the verge of a complete crash! In order to post this one, I had to prepare the parts and pieces on my HP and email all the pictures below to my MAC. Yep! Computer stuff is complicated for me, but my son-in-law (Barry) is a computer whiz and said he would help me find a new HP even though he can't believe that I'm not using my MAC exclusively! [big sigh]... I'm old and set in my ways, and like using Publisher for graphics (which MAC does... Continue reading
