Hi Everyone! It's been a WHOLE YEAR since I updated my blog! We had a big move, my Little Man started Kindergarten, and lots of other things happened that took my special blog time away:) I came across a special post on Paper Craft Magazine's blog about a fellow paper-crafter who does an AMAZING card drive for Alzheimer's caregivers. Her name is Carolyn King and her blog is called: My Blog by Cammie Please check out her blog and help make the day of an Alzheimer's caregiver. You can send a card to someone who helps care for someone with this depressing disease. Cammie also is giving away AMAZING blog candy for one special winner who submits a card. I am really thankful for Cammie. This cause is so close to my heart. My beloved Gram is in a memory care facility and my Mom is a devoted caretaker of her. She visits every week, several times, even though my Gram doesn't know who she is. It is really hard on her and all of our family. I lost a Great-Grandmother and a Great-Uncle to this horrible disease as well. This thank-you card above is the one I am sending out today to my Mom. I don't thank her enough for all that she does. I love you Mom and Grandma Weeze!

Hey there everybody! Long time no blog. I have spent the summer making some great cards, but I just didn't make the time to put them on the blog. I hope to get back in the swing during the fall. On Sunday, September 27th, I am hosting a fun Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit class at Salem UM Church in Manheim, Pa. We will be making two of each of the fun Christmas cards above, plus, you can use your scraps to make some gift tags, mini cards, etc. The cost of the class is $22. Please let me know soon if you'd like to join us for stamping, food, door prizes, and lots of holiday samples to view. Bring your camera! Email or call to register. Enjoy!

I am blessed with so many "angels" in my life and this SU! set fits in my collection perfectly! Here is a cute thank you card using the If the Halo Fits set. I used Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, and Lovely Lilac paper, markers, and water color crayons. I used Basic Black for the image and sentiments. Whisper White Craft ink was used with Itty Bitty Backgrounds to create the dotted background. I used a bit of Dazzling Diamonds glitter on her wings. Make this card and send it to one of your favorite angels.

Hi! I just can't seem to find blogging time lately! A woman's work is never done. Here is a cute and quick card made using the Big Shot machine and my favorite die, Top Note. I used Whisper White for the card and for the die cut. I used Rose Red, one of my favorite shades, to do the panel and inks. The Mother's Day sentiment is from the All Holidays set. I used the Bella Toile Background stamp on both the card and the Rose Red panel. I accented the RR grosgrain ribbon with some cute flower punch-outs and adhered them with a brad. I also sponged the edges with RR ink. Thanks for checking in!

All right ladies, I drink my green tea every morning and I was soooo sad to see this dsp go! Here is a card created using "Green tea" dsp, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, and Whisper white. The stamp set I used is called "Eastern Blooms." The sentiment is from a retired set called "Three For You." I added some grosgrain ribbon in Certainly Celery, a fun gold brad, and an Old Olive felt flower from Flower Fusion. Off to do some coloring with my favorite 4-year old!
