Already? Celebrate then.


Is it for real February already? I can hardly believe a whole month has gone by, but I must say this was not a bad January all things considered. The weather alone has made this month very much bearable.

While bearable, I am not spending much time out doors, as I do not enjoy the cold weather. I have, instead, spent time in my craft room after schooling the children. I am working on batches of cards and also on cards to post here in my blog for my lovely viewers like you. Today I prepared a card for the CCMC 391 and it is one of those that no matter how little supplies you have, it is easy to complete. I know that while we build our product inventory, we want to make simple and beautiful cards. I used Farmers Market DSP, the Bow Builder Punch and the Flowering Fields stamp set, which you can get it now during Sale-a-Bration. I added rhinestones to both the flowers and the bow itself, as I want s touch of something without added colors. I love how it turned out. The bling certainly adds the right amount of details without being overwhelming. Perfect for the loved one.

Thank you for visiting today. I truly appreciate your comments and love. Be well
