I am about to step out and discover what I have been missing in this card making adventure. SoSuzy  has an e-course coming up that hopefully will answer all my questions about what I need to be doing that I haven’t been doing. Like Who, Where, How and how much.  Starts April 15 if anyone else is interested. Until then…she says I should be describing the makeup of these creations. I’ll have to work on that.


Nature’s Inspiration


DSCN1717I love the wisteria vine. Yes it can be overtaking , but has such a sweet smell and brings on Spring like none other. My cousin gave me this vine several years and while she and I both hoped it would be purple ….white will have to do. So….I’m learning to “grow” Susan’s Garden from Elizabeth craft designs and it is time consuming,  but well….what do you think?

why can’t I comment on blogs that I follow?

Butterfly Bliss

Today the Yellow Swallowtails were visiting. There were 6 just having the best time. Hard to get a good picture. They were just all over the English Dogwood. Beautiful. DSCN1706


Someone, in one of my newsletters ( and I can’t for the life of me remember who) ask for postcards to be sent to the WhiteHouse on March 16. Of course I had to jump in. They need all the encouragement they can get. Watercolor it was. Simple. To the point.DSCN1690

Not up for rewards but it was fun. the stars shine. You just can’t see it in the photo.

All the Little Boxes

This was an order for birthday pop-up boxes. Great fun coming up with so many different ideas. Hope they enjoy !DSCN1671

Happy Birthday to…….

Having really enjoyed making the pop-up box cards,I am really enjoying the z-fold box. My niece had a birthday and has had a challenge lately so she needed a special card. Fun to make ….a little time consuming but isn’t that what  it is all about… doing something special for someone who is special ?DSCN1682
