Welcome back friends! I've got a quick cute card to share for today's MFT countdown day. I love this sweet little bunny from Somebunny and she looks so darling among my Tulips from Spring Tulips. The dimension that comes when you use Spring Tulips Die-namics is so wonderful. I used chalks to color in the images... it's so soft and sweet. See... quick and cute! LOL! Edited to add my inspiration: My sweet Ella when she was much younger... isn't... Continue reading

Hi Friends... Welcome back! It's day five of My Favorite Things' 5 Days to an Organized Crafty Stash series. Today, we're sharing ideas for organizing INK! Ink is SO my thing. I just love it! But I have to admit I'm sort of a practical organizer. So I have that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy. And my very old system works for me with the space constraints that I have and my style of stamping. So... these... Continue reading

I've got one last quick card to share as 2014 comes to a close. I hate having occasion to use this sentiment but it seems like there is need for it more and more lately. I've exclusively used my Whimsical Wishes stamp set to create this card. The sentiments are heat embossed with Gold detail powder. The shine of the gold is a great addition to any card. Hope you have a great New Year's Eve... and Happy New Year!... Continue reading

Welcome back friends! I have a fun quick card to share today. I love the whimsy that the circle image gives to any card. This card was one I envisioned when designing Whimsical Wishes.

We have three days left in this MFT December Release Countdown. All the new products will be available... Continue reading

That's usually a hard thing for me to do until I put things into the perspective that if we learn from them they have extraordinary value. So... that is why this sentiment is in Whimsical Wishes!

Look at all those new colors! These new Pierced Star STAX... Continue reading
