My Valentine Cards for 2018

Hello and welcome,
I'm just uploading my Valentine's cards that I have for sale so I have a place to show them. Many sold at a Saturday Market yesterday and I am so pleased they are well received.
I used my different stamp and die companies on this I couldn't even begin to name them all!
Thanks for looking!

It's Been a Year Since I Last Posted...

So life goes on even when you're not posting to a blog! Many changes have happened to me including a move to another town in Alaska. I guess I also quit posting because I didn't see anyone really stopping by my blog anyway unless I was doing a giveaway. That's okay for awhile but soon I ran out of stuff to giveaway! I also ran out of time to blog what with our move and other things happening in my personal life.

But now I've decided that even if I am the only one to see my blog, I will periodically post here to add the cards I've made, just as a record for myself of what I've created. So over the next few weeks, I'll add photos and maybe some wording to this blog just as a reflection of who I am and what I love to do... make cards! And where I live now, Valdez, Alaska!

You are welcome to stop by... or not, as the case may be. I'm doing this for me now...

Here are some of my Christmas cards for 2017.

Happy-55th-Birthday-on-Friday-the-13th-to-Me Giveaway!




Hello and welcome!

My card above was sent to my grandson, Logan for his 8th birthday on January 1st! (I miss that boy!) I used the moon and sentiment from the Altenew "To the Moon" stamp set, the rocket and flame from the Studio Calico "Rocket" stamp set and lots of Ranger distress ink on Gina K Designs base-weight cardstock. I stamped the stars in silver ink. Unfortunately I put my shadow on the wrong side of the rocket but that may be only noticeable to me!

Yes, indeed, today is my 55th birthday and it's Friday the 13th (and I missed the full moon being on my birthday by one day!).

I am blessed by God and decided to share my blessings by having a big giveaway! Everything in the photo below is in the giveaway! Some are new and never used, others gently loved.

Here's the list of goodies:
*Fiskars large stamp press (loved)
*Spellbinders Nestabilities Lattice Rectangles (loved)
*Woodgrain background cling stamp (not sure which company) (new)
*Hero Arts Flower Box stamp (new)
*We R Memory Keepers Crop-A-Dial punch & eyelet setter (loved)
*Technique Tuesday "Dear Time" by Ali Edwards (retired) stamp set (new)
*Misc star pins and arrow clips (new)
*Anything else that finds it's way in the box before I send it to the winner!
