I am involved in a swap through the Paper Wishes Message Board which was to make 3x3 cards and matching envelopes. I enjoyed making them so much that I set a goal for myself that for every regular card that I make I will make a 3x3 with the left over supplies. Here is a sample of some of the cards I have made so far.

It's been a while since I last posted and that's because I was busy preparing for my daughter's bridal shower. The theme was chalkboard and part of the decorations were flowers made with the We R Memory Keepers Flower Punch Board and Stem Kit using We R Memory Keepers Chalkboard papers. We had a great time at the shower.

Saw this demonstrated on the Split Coast Stampers Tutorials and wasn't sure if it was something I wanted to try but then I was challenged to try it out on the Paper Wishes Message Board.  Here are the results of my sweat and tears. :)
 First attempt

Second attempt

There may be more coming or there may not be.  We shall have to see how productive I'm feeling.

Had a wonderful but crazy busy week-end since it was National Scrapbook Day. I joined a few friends online and created a number of scrap book pages, something I haven't done in many, many years. With their encouragement and the challenges I discovered that I actually like scrapping.  Here are the pages that were created.





Mother's Day is just around the corner and even though I longer have the privilege to send cards to my mother or my mother-in-law it does not stop me from creating cards to send to other mothers. Here are a few that I have made this year.


This one was made for a family friend that calls her children her little monkeys.



This one was created using a design from the Paper Wishes Dazzles kit but changed so I can send it to my daughter.
