Swinging Heart

I'm not going to blog about "swinging" in the 70's sense (if you know what I mean). I'm using that word here to describe a bit what is going on with this card. You can't tell from the picture, but the right side of the heart is covering a half-heart cut in the base...

So Many Dies!

I was inspired to play last evening so I could participate in two challenges this week; more on those challenges in a bit. For this card I decided to focus (mostly) on items from the Annual catalog. When a new seasonal catalog has come out, it is so easy to overlook...

Quick Christmas

I admit that I found myself in a bind in terms of Christmas cards this year. Typically I make cards throughout the year so that I have a good supply when the Holiday season comes around. This year I wasn't as diligent and I found myself a fair amount shy of the number...

Bright, Bold Birthday

I made 32 of these cards in varying color combinations for the birthday card ministry at our church. I think the recipients will enjoy getting one of these cards - and I know that I liked making them. I had lots of fun busting out some nice bright colors while making...
