Celebrating Kevin Bacon

Celebrating Kevin Bacon

I just discovered that today is Kevin Bacon's birthday! I remember a few years ago when "6 degrees of Kevin Bacon" was a fun way of approaching how people are connected to each other. This scenario is especially true in very small Vermont! I am frequently scratching...

Enjoy Summer

Enjoy Summer

I just finished a week off from work, and creating this card was my last hurrah on Sunday afternoon. I wanted to create a card capturing the summer feel. We don't have palm trees here in VT, but the images definitely evoke summer. And there is something wonderful...

Fireworks?

Fireworks?

I just heard a story on the radio about home-grown fireworks in New York City, and I saw a video online about a man who shot off fireworks in Brooklyn that went into a house and set it on fire. It sounds like things have gotten a little crazy on that front! Most of...

Bonus Days Again

Bonus Days Again

This event has almost become a tradition - Bonus Days are here again! This sentence has me pondering... how long does something have to happen to qualify as a "tradition"? Surely Sale-A-Bration is a tradition because it has been happening for many years, decades even....

For Dad

For Dad

I have had this stamp set and coordinating dies for ages since it was first released in a Spring mini catalog a couple of years ago. I'm chagrined to admit that this card is the very first time that I've used either of the products. This is a really amazing set for...

Bright Hello

Bright Hello

This card actually came together pretty quickly. The pretty patterned paper gave me the idea to pull out the To a Wild Rose stamps and coordinating dies for the focal image. I was in a groove last evening as I put this together, and I had a brain blast to pull out my...
