Moon Lake

If they would have named this stamp set Moon River, we could all start singing.  Instead we get a great masculine card from a great stamp set.

Magnificent Maple

This year has flown by so fast.  I can't believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner.  We made this card last month at my October Stamp Camp.  It's one my favorite cards.  I loved working with the burlap ribbon.  You will see it used several times over the next few days as I try to get caught up with my posting.

Parker’s Pattern

The Parker’s Pattern Designer Series Paper immediately caught my eye when the Spring Catalog was first published.  It took me a while to get to it as there were so many occasions that needed to be addressed first.  My April Stamp Camp featured two cards using this Designer Series Paper and I couldn’t decide which one I liked best.  Neither could my customers.

You could use a variety of the sentiments from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set to adapt the occassion.

Happy March

Here is my March Facebook Cover that I created in My Digital Studio. It's a lot of fun making these. I am also including the image that I am using a my badge this month. It is from a card I made at my peep’s (Judy Sumner, Mary Taylor and Marla Schack) Card Buffet. It was designed by Judy Sumner and it just a cute as it can be!

Happy March Everyone and Think Spring!
