Happiness is a Cup of Coffee

 I have to say that friends and coffee are the perfect fit!  

I have always been a tea drinker... My parents brewed a pot of coffee every morning.  They kept it going all day long! 

It was 13 years before my husband got me to give coffee a try.  I drown it down with way too much chocolate!  Today, well, I am hopelessly committed to that morning delight!

Support and encouragement from a friend may just be the healing balm needed... Take the time to reach out.  Be the voice of love and mercy.

Now, get busy and meet with a friend over a nice warm cup of java!

Valentine Sweeties!

Who doesn't love a Valentine?  My classes this week centered around love and hearts.  It was fun putting the die cuts, paper, buttons, and embossing folders to work.

Happy Halloween!

 I was making cards for our local cider mill and just had to share them with you.  These were so much fun to make. My kids are well beyond the Halloween stage, but its good to look back and remember all of those cute costumes from days gone by... Happy Halloween!  May it be Spooktacular!

Quilted Card Designs

Quilted Cards are some of the most exciting that I work on.  I never know how they are going to turn out, but every time, they are beautiful!  

It is amazing how a few squares and a few rectangles can look so stunning on a card.  Buttons and ribbon add the perfect touch to any card.

Patchwork Paper Pieced Card


These samples began with a 4 inch square.  I scored my paper down the middle on both sides creating a "plus" sign in the center.  Next,  I folded the corners down into the center meeting at the middle of the square forming 4 triangles. To reveal the background paper hidden within, I simply folded back the tips of the triangles and embellished the center with a button.   

I picked up some patriotic paper at Hobby Lobby one day in the summer.  I could not wait to give the paper and ribbon a try together.  This card strikes a few memories of growing up as a child in the Navy.  Patriotism was expected and cherished in our family.
