Indigo Bunting Beauty

Yesterday, a baby Indigo Bunting flew into the window at our quilt shop in Cobourg. Glen brought him home, as one of his wings is damaged. It seems to be improving, as it’s not as droopy as it was yesterday, but he still can’t fly. Today, we found a used birdcage at Petticoat Lane, inContinue reading “Indigo Bunting Beauty”

Mediterranean Delight

I love this card. I received it after the ON Stage in Orlando, last year from a fellow demonstrator. Carolyn is part of my “greater” team (not sure where we connect, as we all stem from the same Upline, somewhere along the line. I feel like I need to go somewhere where there’s wine, cheese,Continue reading “Mediterranean Delight”

Love Eclipse Card

I’m glad I ordered the Large Letters Framelits before they retire next month. I had wanted them for a while, but when I realized they weren’t carrying over to the new Annual Catalogue, I knew I had to get them before they were gone! I love making my own backgrounds, so I used Flirty FlamingoContinue reading “Love Eclipse Card”

By The Bay Thank You Card

I’ve had this stamp set for the longest time, so it’s about time I used it. I actually saw this card on Pinterest – my major source of inspiration – and although the stamp set the artist used is retired, I thought of By the Bay,  from this year’s Sale-a-bration.  Although it too is unfortunately,Continue reading “By The Bay Thank You Card”

Discounts and Blue Hair

  I had the pleasure of turning 65 last week.  My daughter sent me messages throughout the day and one of them was “bring on the discounts and blue hair”.  Needless to say, I cracked up. I’m all for the discounts, but I’ll pass on the blue hair for now. My close friend, Doreen, whoContinue reading “Discounts and Blue Hair”

Let it ride

This beautifully simple card uses the Stamparatus, to create the illusion of motion. I saw this card on Pinterest, made by Jane Allmark, in the UK. She also has a video showing the technique. Please note that I’ve included the Stampin’ Trimmer, but it is retiring at the end of this catalogue period. Soft suedeContinue reading “Let it ride”

“Love What You Do” Tri-fold Card

You will also cut 1” x 11” from the remnant for the belly band. I used two different pieces ofContinue reading ““Love What You Do” Tri-fold Card”
