I had a quiet weekend at home. I didn't feel good for a few days and just took a break and slept and relaxed with my... Continue reading

Followed by a big ole hug! (I'm a hugger, and I'm squishy too)... So when I went to make this card, I had that in mind. I love these adorable ladybugs stamps and dies from Honey Bee Stamps. They are so much fun to color! Happy Saturday my little ladies! I hope you have a fantastic weekend planned. This card has a lot going... Continue reading

Greetings Special Friends! How are you? Are you crafting anything fun this week? I hope you get in some creative time - I feel like that's so important.

Hi crafty people! I have a treat for you today! I cute little cupcake! How was your weekend? We had a good weekend here in Sactown.
