    Cards From Friends and Family

    Earlier this month I celebrated my birthday and I was very blessed to receive the following awesome cards from friends and family. I thought I'd share these wonderful works of "heart" along with a few valentines beauties. Enjoy!


    This card was made by one of my fabulous downline members, Ethel De Temple.   Ethel features one of my favourite stamps this season, Tea Shoppe see page 19 of the Mini Occasions catalogue.  I love how she centered the large teacup on the scallop square so it looks like a placemat or napkin, and then added the tiny basic pearls and satin ribbon  for adornment.  The lines from the "Stripes" Embossing Folder also add some visual appeal.  Great card Ethel!

    Isn't this a gorgeous card? Brenda Rigby Riehle a SU Demo and fellow Late Night Stamper (LNS) sent me these birthday wishes all the way from Belmont, NY. Check out Brenda's blog, she has some awesome cards and projects.

    Another fabulous stamp set from the Occasions Mini is the Apothecary Art set on pages 24 and 25.  It features 6 stamps that can be layered using the Labels Collection Framelits.  Isn't this a great card design?  I wish you could see it in real life as it's stunning.  This card was made and sent to me by Helen Cummins from Louisburg, Kansas.  Helen is a member of Late Night Stampers.

    This lovely card was made by Jody Townsend of Colorado Springs, Colorado.  What a surprise when I received this card.  Jody is a member of Late Night Stampers too. 

    Here's a birthday card fom Stampin' Up!.  Yep that's right Stampin' Up! sends birthday cards to all their demonstrators.  That's just one of the great perks, and note the message on the inside of the card below.  You can't beat that for a great birthday present.  I submitted my order this week and got my rewards! 

    Betty Lee Moore of Vernon, BC sent me this gorgeous Valentine's Day card.  I loved all the little layered hearts  on this card and the way she layered her ribbon.  Beautiful card Betty Lee and much appreciated!

    Here's a great Valentine's Day card sent by my awesome sister Heather.  Those little House Mouse characters are so sweet and so is this card!  Thanks Heather, loved it!

    And finally here's the card I made my husband for Valentine's Day. 

    Hope you enjoyed this selection of cards and come back to visit again

    Computer Crashes and Other Happenings

    Hi folks.  In case you haven't noticed I've been missing in action for the past 3 weeks due to my computer crashing and other technological glitches.  What a nightmare this has been!  I lost all of my "My Digital Studio" files, pictures and other stamping project related items.  Everything gone and only an out of date backup to show for all my work. 

    I've spent endless hours trying to retrieve documents, drivers and programs that vanished, but all seems to be coming together now.  Just a few more programs like Java to get up and running and then things should be back to normal and I'll begin posting regularly. 

    I'm so sorry to have let you down at this time of year, but I'll  try my best to get back up to speed and show you wonderful samples and post some new techniques and classes. To all my loyal followers, thanks for hanging in there.  I'M BACK!!!!!
