Hey y’all!  I know I’ve been away for a week or more, but I had a few days of feeling under the weather and then . . . of course, when I have the grand baby . . . well there just isn’t any time for work!  I’ve got some big projects coming up, and I’m toying with the idea of some new directions . . . we’ll see!

Here’s a little peek of a card I have posted over on the Quietfire Creations Blog today . . .


It’s clean and simple for me, so I hope you visit me at Quietfire to see more photos and get the details.

Thanks for checking in here today!



Good morning!  What a wild and crazy productive weekend creating in the studio!  When I looked at my calendar for the month of May, I found that I was pretty well triple booked for the first few days.  Nothing like giving this BAD girl an incentive to get her behind in the studio.  I almost said flabby fanny  . . . BUT . . . if you aren’t following me on Facebook, I’ve lost 45 pounds since October.  It’s not such much a flabby fanny anymore!!

I’ve got to projects today!  The first one is for eclectic Paperie and is my take on the ePlay Challenge for this month, Get Stenciled!  You’ve still got plenty of time this month to play along.


You can find all the details and more photos on the eP Blog today!

My second project is for Quietfire Design.  Suzanne made us this great “Thanks” stamp that we could fill up with all sorts of doodles or tangles.


Once again, you can find more photos and details on the Quietfire Creations Blog today.

I hope you’ll hop over and join me on the eP and Quietfire blogs!  Thanks for stopping by here today!

Tangled Thanks Cards Project Supplies:

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  We spent the day with the Cheever Brothers and their families again this year.  It’s always fun to get together with them all and catch up on what everyone has been up to the last year.

It’s been fairly quiet around here today and I took a few moments to busy myself in the studio.  After I had started today’s project, I decided to change it up so it is nothing like what I initially started to make.

For this one, I decided to go the clean and simple route as well as make a card that could be easily mass-produced.   It’s not bulky (even through there are a number of layers) and will easily fit into a standard 5×7 envelope.


The sentiment is Peace & Joy from Unity and one I’ve had for a number of years.  It was embossed with Queen’s Gold and then die cut/embossed with Spellbinders® Labels Four.  The layers behind the sentiment were die cut/embossed with 5×7 Elegant Labels Four.


The base of the card was die cut/embossed with Matting Basics B.  If I’ve not explained how I do this before, I used a sheet of 8.5×11” cardstock, scored and fold the paper in half and then lined the folded edge of the paper up with the inside edge of the die.

The edges of the paper were all trimmed with 18 kt gold leafing pen.  When assembling the card, I thought to myself . . .  hey let’s leave off the foam mounting tape and see what happens.  Okay . . . one card that can be mailed flat in a plain (not padded) envelope!

That’s it for me today . . .  thanks for stopping by!
