This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

I have a couple of cards to share today. The first I made for my sister Chris' birthday. I just love red and black with Kraft. The colors did not photograph that well this time but I was too lazy to take the photo again.
The colors are more vibrant and the scallop is actually SU red Glimmer paper which is very sparkly.
Stamps: Stampin' Up! Blue Ribbon and Chic Boutique (ret)
Paper: SU cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, and Crumb Cake. Scallop- Red Glimmer paper. SU Designer Paper: the musical staff from the retired Newsprint paper pack, and the floral print from the Bella Bleu pack, also retired.
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Real Real Satin ribbon, Fiskars border punch. Nestibilities.

This second card I made for a workshop make and take. We haven't had any snow yet this year but working with the snowman makes me want some.  I love this cute stamp set and and was inspired by this great easel card by jeny_79 at SplitcoastStampers.


Stamps: SU Snow Much Fun stamp set
Paper: SU cardstock: Pool Party, Whisper White, Wild Wasabi and Crumb Cake
Ink: SU White Craft ink and Black India ink

I am really embarrassed that I have been gone so long. I just seem to lose my motivation for the blog and crafty things for a while. I have been very immersed in gardening, canning, freezing meals and organizing
around the place. Now of course that also means time searching YouTube, blogs, and websites for information, and recipes for inspiration to do those things. Oh, and don't forget Pinterest! (totally addicting) Anyway, I am back and will probably have to find some new followers since I abandoned my blog almost a year ago. This time I am going to vary my posts more often, so you will see some gardening, cardmaking, scrapbooking, cooking, organizing, and maybe even a little sewing. I will share a few photos today and hopefully you will come back to visit again. If you would like me to visit your blog, make sure you leave me a comment with your blog address in it. Yay, I'm back in "blogdom

First up, a scrapbook page for my family album. Yep, that is me in Grade 4. I was such a little Tomboy then.
