Older Still Works!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I know we all have a few supplies in our stash, and if you are like me some of them have been around for awhile. How many of you remember these punches from Fiskars?

I love these edge punches and used them several times in the past. Somehow they got lost in the back of my stamp drawer, but I found them and created this card.

I thought this leaf pattern paired nicely with the image of the tree on the paper. I sprayed the front of the card with Imagine Sheer Shimmer Spray. It gives a nice finish to the card, it reminded me of the morning dew you find on the tree leaves.

This is a card I created several years ago using one of the Fiskar punches. Looking back at the cards I created, I can see the progress and changes in the cards I have made. Always room for improvement!

I will be creating more cards using these punches now that I have rediscovered them. Punches seemed to have been tossed to the way side to make room for the many die cuts we use in our machines now, but I will continue to use my old supplies. Older still works!

Enjoy your crafty day and thank you for visiting my blog!

A Little Bit of Spring!

A bouquet of flowers can brighten up any room. However, sending them to someone in a hospital or a rehabilitation center is not always practical.

Flowers created from paper can serve nearly the same purpose as the real ones! I created a card to brighten up the room of someone very special to me.

This is the first pop-up card that I created and I love all the ways it can be decorated. I love the little hedgehog; it is one of my favorite stamps.

I hope when people see this card they will smile!

‘Dodger Blue’ Get Well Card!

When you have a friend who has been under the weather giving her a get well card could cheer her up, especially when the card is customized for her. She is an LA Dodgers baseball fan!

We banter about our teams, (I am a San Francisco Giants fan!), but our friendship is solid!

Creating this card for my friend is just one of the reasons I enjoy designing handmade greeting cards! Everyone likes to get cards and I am happy to oblige!

Enjoy your creative day!
