The ONE new in '22 ~ March!

Hi friends!

I'm still here!

It's been 1000% overdrive on maximum velocity in our family 

and I can't seem to catch a break.

Not to craft and make cards like I'd like ~ 

and I'm just barely able to keep up with my YouTube channel 

commitments and collaborations but it's FUN FUN FUN!  


I'm absolutely loving the entries to my birthday challenge giveaway

 and seeing everyone's talent! 

 My goodness, everyone is a crafty superstar!

I have a card share today that was to be posted March 3rd ...

but at least it's still March!

This is for my One Plus Twelve card series that is my FAVORITE!


Don't tell my other cards that :)

This year, in 2022, I chose Pink Fresh Studio's Butterfly.

This month, I am using a scrap of quilt like designer paper

that was just barely enough to complete a card.

I feel VERY accomplished that I was able to use an entire 12 x 12

sheet of paper to make quite a few crafty items, like this card:

And if you peep the orchids in the background,

those are from my daughter's high school graduation!

She is now 25 and moved into her own condo ~

and they are still going strong <3

If you'd like to see the video of this card,

CC2210 ~ St. Patrick's Day!

Hi friends!

It's time for another CCEE Stampers challenge

brought to us by Frances!

Today is St Patrick’s Day. 

Create a card that features either leprechauns or gnomes.

Now let's take a look at the cards our Design Team created this week.

While I don't have a card today, I do have a mini pocket letter!

And it has a gnome underneath the shamrock confetti :)

This was my first pocket letter and it was a fun one to make!

Here is the video version on my YouTube channel  

And here it is on the front:

And the flip side:

See the bottom right corner - top hat and red beard?  That's a gnome!

The gold coins are coming out of the pot 'o gold

and of course, there had to be a rainbow!

This folds up to the size of an ATC card

and I've added it to a green net bag.

Be sure to head over to the CCEE Stampers here!

CC2209 ~ Die Cuts Only!

  Hi friends!

There's a new challenge at the CCEE Stampers this week:  Die Cuts!

Die Cuts Only - create a card that is created using dies only, no stamps. 

If you must, you can use a stamp for the sentiment, but bonus points if you use dies.

Well ............

it's good that there is some wiggle room for these challenges

because I stamped the flower THEN die cut!

I used the new Tim Hotlz Saltwater Taffy distress oxide 

and an Altenew flower 

along with Impression Obsession stitched frame die.

Journal Art Prompt!

Hi friends!

Mixed Media art is something I've always long admired.

I seen countless journals and canvases

and artistic creations that just WOW me!

But I haven't dabbled ...  much :)

I took a chance and signed up for a journal cover art prompt open collab

on YouTube hosted by 2 YouTube creators.

Here is my video!

It was a really interesting concept ....

we were mailed a 1" chipboard binder, a plain chipboard cover

and an art journal business card.

Then, we created a cover based on that card

and mailed it to the person who's name we got!

Here is the art journal prompt card I received (created by Rosie!)

 And here is the journal cover I created.

The rules were to use 3-5 colors/theme/items from the prompt card

to recreate the cover.

I kept the emerald green color, the design from the paper and material,

bling and butterfly and color palette through-out.

I had a lot of fun putting this together for my partner!
