4 Cards/1 Stencil

I few months back I watched a YouTube tutorial featuring the Radiating Rays stencil by MY Favorite Things. I ordered the stencil almost immediately... then never used it. Crazy, right? Ha!

January Card Swap

A few months ago I joined a local rubber stamp club. We meet once a month at a local library, socialize, learn about local crafting events, do a group project, and have a card swap.

Playing with Glitter and Ink

It feels good being back in my craft room. I took nearly a month off. After helping my dad heal from surgery, I now have some free time again. But only a little free time...

Purple and Silver Christmas

Purple is her favorite color. I keep this in mind every time I shop for my wonderful mother-in-law. This year I asked if I could make a few Christmas cards for her to send out to friends and family. And yes, the color scheme starts with purple. My inspiration for purple and silver came from… Continue reading Purple and Silver Christmas
