Foiled Birthday Card


 Hello, I hope you are all finding some crafty time and maybe even turning off the tv for a bit. 

 It's my turn over at the Poppystamps blog again today. 

Now that I have been quilting so much.... I clean up my sewing and then go into card making craft mode, I love both so much. I will say.... both make a huge mess but so worth it. What a blessing to be able to do so many crafts and have such a supportive husband. Truly blessed. 

I want you to know my crafty friends.... you are always in my prayers.

Take care

Be Still & Know Slimline Card and Rope Baskets






 Hello and happy weekend to you ! Thank you all so much for the kind words on the passing of my father. 

I took out some of my Greetery stamps and dies, along with my Simon Says Stamp Slim Line Envelope die.

I used Botani Cuts die and added some larger leaves from Lovely Blossoms. 

 Nordic Slimline Die 

BotaniCuts Forget-Me-Nots Die 

,Comforting Commands

Lovely Blossoms Stamp Set

Simon Says Stamp SLIMLINE ENVELOPE Wafer Dies 

I posted this on My Instagram 
I wanted to make something for each of the siblings ( I am one of 9) I asked for shirts of my father’s, thinking for a quilt. I wanted to try making rope baskets and then got the idea I could cut strips of my dads shirts and wrap them around the rope and make one for each sibling. Well I completed them in time . Just a little something of my dad for each to have .  I made these using my Bernina sewing machine zigzagging round and round I wrapped the shirt piece around the rope as I was sewing.

Thank you for the visit and I hope you have a wonderful day.

I made his favorite cake the year before. Thank you dad for the gift of faith and loving mom for over 66 years.  You will be missed by many. May you Rest In Peace in our Lords loving arms.
Love you dad.

Paper Blooms


 Hello and happy Sunday to you. Hope you are all doing well and get to enjoy some family time making wonderful memories.


  We've been blessed with lots of family time, laughter, mostly happy tears and sometimes sad tears. We all need each other and I feel so blessed to have such a large family and wonderful friends .  
I pray that you all have the same. 
All that family time takes away from crafting and quilting but I wouldn't trade any of it for less time with family.

I did get to enjoy some time in the craft room early in the morning and a chance to play with these dies and stamps from the Greetery.  
I cut the blooms in white, then used blending brushing and distressed oxide inks to color the the blooms.

 Hope you all have a good week ahead filled with lots of blessing.

Birthday Cards




Hello, and welcome to our monthly post of The 12 Kits of Occasions Occasions.  I hope that you've all been staying healthy.

Tracey McNeely is our host for the month of  January. As you can see in the photo above the kit was filled with lots of bright and happy.

I have always been a big fan (and love ) Tracy's absolutely beautiful clean and simple designs, anything that sweet girl creates.

I have been making slimline cards ever since I got my new SL envelope die from Simon Says Stamp. I used my older memory box die for the circles called:Pinpoint Circle Frame, perfect for SL.


 I love the simplicity of the card above with added texture, the watercolor paper from Hobby Lobby.




On this last card, before I took the cut die out of the paper I used Simon Hurley Stamping Foam (so much fun) to create the texture. All you do is heat the foam and press it on anything...... I pressed it on the cutter I have then inked it up and stamped over the die cut letters. Big Birthday from MFT 

We are sorta rethinking the 12 Kits as of now, I will keep you posted as we have all been so busy. Please visit the blog to see all the designers and guest, also for the complete list of supplies.

Blessing to you all.

Lovely Blossoms Birthday Card



Hello and Happy Monday to you all. This Monday I started my day in the craft room before all my chores. I couldn't wait to play with some of my happy mail from: The Greetery.


was so much fun to play with and easy to stamp. I used a stamp I already had Harvest Home Stamp Set  Kinda of in place of the beautiful heart from the release.


I found that while stamping the whole image a few of the smaller ones could be stamped in the same place , without moving the stamp.
Not sure if that makes sense to you, but it sure saved a bit of time for me


I was able to tuck the blooms inside the lower leaf panel as I used a bit of foam tape.


Thank you for the visit today. Peace be with you all.
God bless.
