I'm back with another Five Minute Friday card today! I've missed being able to share these. Making cards doesn't have to be complicated. Believe me, whomever you've giving this to will appreciate that you took time to make something for them. Today's card uses the Garden In Bloom stamp set. The stamping on this card is quick. I started with the large flower in Sweet Sugarplum. Then I added the leaves in Garden Green. The little flower … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday – Garden In Bloom
The Retirement List was just released on Monday and it is 10 pages long. I can't believe how many good things will be going away. It's always a shock every single year when I see the retiring list. It's so sad to say good-bye to so many favorites. One of the stamp sets we will be saying good-bye to is Grateful Bunch. It has been a fast favorite this past year. You can see some other ideas using this same stamp set here and … [Read more...] about Grateful Bunch, I’ll Miss You…
Every month I get together with my Stampin Up Downlines and it is one of my absolute favorite evenings of the month. These ladies get it. They understand and share in my crafty desire to play with stamps, ink, and paper and make things. It’s such a blessing to have these ladies in my life. Even if we were not Stampin Up Demonstrators any longer, I can't imagine not having them in my life. Last night was our May Downline meeting and it was a … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday
Last Sunday I attended my very first MeetUp. Have you heard of these? If you look them up online, MeetUps are groups of people that share a common interest and get together to partake in that activity. There’s all sorts of MeetUp groups – hiking, biking, crafting, and lots more. It’s such an awesome way to meet people who share a common interest. This past Sunday’s Meet Up was for a group of people that decorate their planners. I know you’re … [Read more...] about Grateful for Friends

Did you know there’s only little more than two weeks left of May? Yikes! Where does the time go? The end of the school year is always really busy for us: wrapping up our soccer and track seasons, end of year school activities, team award banquets for both school and extracurricular teams, awards nights for schools, and the list goes on. Sometimes, the only way I can get cards made is if I don't set my sights too high. Geeze, that sounds bad. What … [Read more...] about Five Minute Friday

Just in case you didn't know, yesterday was Mother's Day. We celebrated with my mom Saturday evening and my hubby spent the previous Saturday with his mother. Yesterday, we got to do something I've been dying to do since I first heard it they were building it about two years ago. We went to Universal Studios to see the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! Oh my goodness! Universal did a pretty good job recreating Hogsmeade and Hogwarts. It … [Read more...] about The Best Mother’s Day Ever
