Well so does the banana! Just LOVE her! 1 down 3 more to go. Actually all the blankets are done just need to do the rest! Thanks for stopping by and as always....... Continue reading

Hi Stampers! Well here is my last swap from Convention! I love how this turned out and this is yet again another new stamp set that I just LOVE! It's called "Flower Patch" #134207 it's a photo polymer set which I'm getting used to using. I love how they are completely see through! Of course I had to top off this card with Dazzling Diamond glitter and just a little more bling with a couple of Rhinestones in the middle of the flowers just to give it that extra touch! Enjoy your Saturday stamp something! Thanks for stopping by! Yvonne... Continue reading

So I've actually been wanting to re-learn for awhile and when Stampin' Up! started selling fabric....well I just had to buy some. I made this Rag Quilt... Continue reading
