When Life Gives You Lemons!

  Hello Crafter's, Hope you all had a nice weekend. School starts back day after tomorrow. Summer break went by so fast.

 My grandson Walker loves to visit with me late at night. He will message me a lot of times after midnight and ask if I'm still up. Love that they now live next door. Going to miss those late night talks. But we will still have the weekends.

Before I get to busy with the things I need to do today, I wanted to share my latest card that I made.

This card was super easy to make and perfect for a summer card. I have had that little lemon stamp set for several years and had never used it. My goal is use every stamp set that I have. 

I don't think the stamp has a name but was made by Studio G. I have several of those little stamp sets that I haven't used yet. Do any of you have stamps that you haven't used? 

I used Olive Old card stock for the strips. The Inks I used are Summer Sun and Memento Black.

Ran the the strips through the cuttlebug with a dots embossing folder.

Love how fast this card came together. I'm planning on making another one. But instead of lemons, I'm going to make it limes.  

Well I have a lot to do today, You all have a great week and hope you can make it back again.

Pocket Silhouette Card

 Hello, Happy day to you all, Thanks for stopping by. I needed a thank you card so decided that I wanted to use an older stamp, so finally decided on a set called Pocket Silhouettes from Stampin Up.

  Wanted to keep this card simple so I just stamped the image in three different colors. Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Concord Crush. 

The colored carsdstock is Pumpkin Pie and used a scalloped border from Pretty Pink Posh on the bottom.

The thank you sentiment is from a retired Stampin Up set called  Short and Sweet. To finish the card I added some jute twine. 


Also thought I would share a recipe with you. This one is for Oatmeal Raisin Drop Cookies. 

Oatmeal Raisin Drop Cookies

Ingredients needed

2 1/2 c. quick oats

1 cup (2 sticks) butter -room temperature 

1 1/2 c. flour

1 c. brown sugar - packed

1/2 c. sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp. vanilla

1-1/2 c. raisins- Add another half cup if you like more

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl combine oats, flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside

In large bowl combine softened butter, vanilla, eggs and mix then add brown sugar, white sugar. Mix well, then slowly add dry ingredients. Lastly add raisins and mix.

Drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet, about an inch and a half apart and bake in a preheat oven for 10 minutes. 

Let them cool for a few minutes

Tone on Tone Butterfly Card

 Good morning, Glad you could stop by. I was looking at challenges to play along with and found a few. One challenge that I spotted was to create a tone on tone card. Besides a white on white card, I'm not sure if I had ever created one, So I thought I would take on the challenge. 




Thought I would make this one a sympathy card. It's always good to have a few made up before you need them. 

 Not sure why I chose greens but that's the papers I grabbed. The butterfly was given to me by a friend several years ago. It doesn't have a name on the case. I think it's Stampin Up since she was a demonstrator and the sentiment is from an altenew set.

The background die is from Taylored Expressions called Kaleidoscope.This is my first time using it. I like the die but not sure if it was the right choice for this card.

I used a flower that I have had for a long time. Made by Petaloo. I do love using things that I have had for awhile.

Used Old Olive Ink on the butterfly and for the sentiment. 

Green card stock is Old Olive and the yellow/green card stock is from Michaels. The green paper is from my stash. I colored a clear gem with a green alcohol marker. Also used a stitched oval.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great weekend. I'm going to be spending a few days with my Mom.

Happy Hex Card

 Hello Crafter's, Glad you could stop by. We are having a lot of rain here in Indiana. Probably from hurricane Elsa. Hope you all had a nice 4th of July. I have been cleaning and organizing my craftroom. Starting to look better. 

Thought I would share a card with you that I made.



 For this card I used Stamps and dies from Taylored Expressions. First time using these products. For the black background I used the Mini Slim Background called Happy Hex. I used the coordinating die set to make small hexagons in multiple colors. For the center I stamped a hexagon and stamped Thank You with another set from Taylored Expressions called Hex Add-Ons. 

Really like how this turned out and it was a fun one to put together. Already have some more idea's of some other ways that I can use these stamps and dies.    

Here is a link if you would like to

check out their products.

That's all from me today. Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. Have a wonderful week.

July Birthday card

  Hello, It's the 4th of July. Do any of you have plans for today? We will be staying home this year. Hoping the neighbors have some fireworks to let off. They have let some off for the past few nights, so they will probably be doing more.

I have two nieces that were born on July 4th. I usually make their birthday cards with the colors red,white and blue. So this year is no different. Sharing a picture of one of the cards. They are both alike. 

This card was made using a napkin and I love the pretty image. I love how easy napkin cards are to make.  I'm sure they will love them.


Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th and hope you can make it back.

Wedding Card

  Happy Friday, Glad you could stop by. I've been busy having a yard sale. Had it yesterday, today and also tomorrow. It's a 10 family yard sale. We are having it at the 4-H building here in my home town. It's so big we had to have a big building. 

Since I am home right now and my husband is looking over our stuff, I thought I would get this post in.

My card for today is a wedding card. This wedding was last minute so I had to come up with a quick card. 


I used a little stamp that I have had for several years and had never used. Stamped it on a stitched tag. Someone had sent me that little heart die and I thought it was perfect for this card. 

Well I am super busy today so I have got to go. Thanks so much for stopping by. Would love for you to leave me a comment. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I'm hoping I get rid of a lot of stuff at the yard sale.

Hello, Glad you could stop by. Today is Father's Day,the day we celebrate the special men in our lives, Dad's, Grandfather's and husbands. So I have a father's day card to share with you all.

The deer and tree stamp is from a retired set called Nature Silhouettes from Stampin Up.

I am really liking the colors that I used on this one. I put a circle mask on white cardstock and sponged on Summer Sun ink to make the sun. Embossed the Real Rust cardstock. The folder is called Forrest Branches.

Sentiment is from a Stampin Up set called Thoughts of Father.

Well that's all from me today. Getting ready to bake a cake for my hubby. He is spending the day fishing with some friends. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!

Congratulations Grad Card & Cinn/Raisin Biscuits

  Hello paper crafter's, Hope all is well with you. It's that time of year for graduations.

My niece Livi is graduating high school and wanted to share the card I made her.

This is my second time making a slimline card. The first one was a few years ago, Before they were so popular.

Her school colors are red and black but wanted it to be more girly so I added other colors.

I used my Cricut for the word Grad and for the graduating cap.  I clear embossed the word Congratulations. It's a set from Stampendous called Tweet Chirps.

I enjoyed making a slimline card. I have been seeing a mini slimline card and want to try that. 


I also have a recipe to share with you all. I don't do a lot of baking when the weather starts warming up but I had some raisins that I needed to use up and I thought the grandkids would enjoy a treat.

So I made a batch of Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits. They are sooo easy to make. The grandkids really enjoyed them. 

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits


3 1/2 c. Bisquick

1 c. water

8 tsp. sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

raisins 1/4th cup- or as many as you want.



1/4th c. milk 

3 c. powdered sugar

2 tbs.salted butter 

1/2 tsp. vanilla


Preheat oven to 400

(Could also turn to 425) but my oven does best at 400

In small bowl combine sugar and cinnamon 

In large bowl add Bisquick,raisins, sugar/cinnamon together and mix. Add water and mix well.

Drop biscuits onto a baking sheet at least 1 inch apart. Bake at 400 for around 11 minutes,Until golden brown. Ovens do vary so watch carefully. 



In medium bowl mix together melted butter, vanilla and milk. Gradually mix in powdered sugar. Mix well

Spoon over hot biscuits 

Now get you a glass of milk or a cup of coffee and enjoy!  



Well that's it for me today. Hope you can make it back. Have a great day!

Rose Blooms and Coffee Card

  Hello, Happy Friday! Hope you had a good week. Suppose to start warming up today and the sun is shining. We have had thunderstorms for two days, so it's nice to see the sun shining. 

Today I have another card to share. I used a digital image from STAMPlorations called Rose Blooms and Coffee, designed by Shery Russ.



 I love the colors blue and yellow together. I think they are cheerful colors. The red goes really well with it. Used Spectrum Noir and Master's Touch Alcohol Markers to color in the image. 

The sentiment is from a retired set from Stampin Up. Blue and White cardstock and yellow gingham paper. Used a border die from Pretty Pink Posh to make the stitched angle on the gingham paper. I also added some red ribbon. 

I like how this card turned out. I really like that pretty digital image from STAMPlorations. 

I will be entering this card into the STAMPloration Spring Fling Blog Hop & Linky Party.

Here is a link if you would like to link up.

Spring Herbs Card

  It's Tuesday and the sun is shining on this pretty Spring day. Hope you all are well. 

I have a card to share with you all today. It's a digital image I got from Pattie's Creations and it's a freebie right now. 


This image is called Spring Herbs. I used alcohol markers to color it. The sentiment is from a  Crafter's Square stamp set. I had received it awhile back in some happy mail. Embossed the lavender cardstock with a folder called  Geometric Rings and the die is from S.U. I also added some backer's twine by the sentiment.  

Wasn't for sure about that sentiment. Felling it may be a little to big. But I don't think the person who receives it will mind at all. 

I will be entering this card into some challenges. I am also entering it into the Spring Fling Linky Party over at STAMPlortions. This will be my third card that I will be linking up. They are also having a blog hop.

Get Well Card

  Happy Saturday, Glad you could stop by.

Wanted to share a get well card that I made for my sister.





 The flowers are from a Pretty Pink Posh stamp set call Peonies.   

(My favorite flower). I colored them in shades of lavenders and purples. (My favorite colors). 

 Coloring is a bit of a challenge for me. I really don't know the correct or best way. I just color and have fun. 

I do think the purples are harder to blend. I think It may have blended a little better if I had tried coloring it with Stampin Up cardstock.

Colored the flowers with alcohol markers. I fussy cut two of the flowers.The sentiment is from a retired S.U. set called Sincere Salutations.

The scalloped die is also from Pretty Pink Posh called Stitched Borders 2. When running the border die through the cuttlebug it messed up the top of the cardstock so I added the green corner piece. 

I will be entering this card into the STAMPlorations Spring Fling Blog Hop & Linky Party. This will be my second card that I am linking up. 

There is still time to link up a spring card or check out the blog hop. The STAMPgirls have created some wonderful Spring cards. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great weekend.

Have a HAPPY Spring Day Card

   Pretty sunny day today.The weather is warming up, Suppose to get up to 90 today. 

I have been busy playing in my craftroom making some cards for some challenges.

Have you seen that STAMPlorations is having a Spring Fling blog hop and Linky party?  Yes they are and I really enjoyed hoping along and seeing all of the inspiration from the STAMPgirls. They are all so super creative. 

Today I am sharing my first card that I will be adding to the Linky party. 





This little cute bee looks pretty happy enjoying a Spring day. It is a digital image from Bugaboo. Used alcohol markers to color. Made the cloud with sentiment using  print and cut on my Cricut. Also used a stitched rectangle die. 

I think that image is so cute. I love that cute little smile. After I finished coloring the bee I thought I had colored it wrong. I thought the bee's bottom had to be black. I almost threw it away. But I checked out some bee's and some have the yellow bottom. Glad I didn't throw it away.

That's it from me, Hope you can make it back. I will be posting some more cards soon. Have a Great week!

Blue Bird Napkin Card

  Hello, Having some chilly weather here on Mother's Day. Enjoying a hot cup of coffee before I get to busy. 

 Thunderstorms with lightning heading this way. Looks like I might be getting a little wet later going to see my Mom. Hopefully the storms won't last to long.

Sharing with you all the card I created for my Mom for Mother's Day. 



This one was created using a napkin. Isn't that napkin gorgeous with those sweet little blue birds. Oh I love it so much.

I wasn't for sure where to place the sentiment because I didn't want to cover up any of the pretty image. So I decided to put it in the center. 

I also added a light blue sheer ribbon so that the image would still show through. The sentiment is from S.U. I also added a little pearl next to the sentiment.  I think she will love this one. I know I do.


Also I wanted to share a recipe with you all. This cake is called by several names. But I call it Mandarin Sunshine Cake.

 I made one this past Easter and I'm making one today to take to my Mom's for the dinner. Going to be adding some candles to this one. It's one of my sister's birthday today.


Mandarin Sunshine Cake 

Ingredients for cake-

Butter Cake Mix

1 can mandarin oranges 11 ounce w/juice 

3/4 cup oil

4 eggs


Ingredients for frosting

1 cool whip

1 - 3 ounce vanilla instant pudding

1 - 20 ounce can crushed pineapple (drained)


Preheat oven 350 and grease and flour a 9x13 pan

In large bowl mix cake mix with mandarin oranges w/ juice and oil.

Pour batter into pan and bake for 35-40 minutes. Cool completely

She Believed She Could Encouragment Card

  Hello, happy Friday to you. I made another card for the Things with Wings linky party at STAMPlorations and a few other challenges.


 Was looking through my stamps to make an encouragement card and spotted the This Little Piggy stamp set from Stampin Up.

It is such a cute stamp set and it's perfect for the Things with Wings linky challenge.

Stamped the image once on white paper and once on pink cardstock. Cut out the pink and added some shading on it with Pretty In Pink Ink and also used a pink alcohol marker. 

Cardstock used- Pretty In Pink and White. The flower paper is from a Maggie Holmes collection called Bloom.

Added some stickles to the wings. I popped up the stitched circle die with dimensionals and added some jute twine. 

This card was a fun one to make and I think it turned out cute.

This will be my last card for the Things with Wings linky challenge over a STAMPlorations. I have had so much fun creating them all.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a fun and crafty weekend!

Today I have another butterfly card. I had received that butterfly die cut in some happy mail. I send out a lot of thank you cards, so I thought this die cut would be perfect for one. 

The thank you sentiment is from S.U. and the so much sentiment is from a stamp set called Coffee Joy from STAMPlorations.

Cardstock- yellow and black and the designers series paper is from S.U. I also added some white ribbon.

BEE Happy Card!

  Happy Friday! So glad you stopped by. I have been a busy BEE making a card for some challenges. One of those challenges is the Things with Wings Linky Challenge from STAMPlorations.

I thought it would be fun to make a card using an image I created. So here is my card. 



I hand drew that cute little bee, scanned the image and printed it out. Would have been easier if my printer wasn't almost out of ink. So I had to use the one my husband uses. 

Colored it with Spectrum Noir and Master's Touch alcohol markers.

Cut out some hexagons with a die from Spellbinders. Used Summer Sun card stock and a few pattered papers from my stash.

Stamps used are from C.C.Designs, Pretty Pink Posh and Recollections.

The stitched cloud die cut is from the Dollar Tree

Made the black scalloped layer on my Cricut

I had a lot of fun putting this one together and really fun using an image I made. Never thought to do that before.

 Thanks for visiting and would love for you to leave a comment. 

Hope you all have a great weekend. Stay Safe & Stay Crafty!

A Happy Hello

  Hello Crafty friends, Hope you are doing well and staying safe. I have been having fun creating cards for some challenges. I have another one to share with you all today.


I haven't really did very many tropical cards but I love this Image from Sheepski Designs called Tropical.

It took me two days to finish coloring the image because I get so nervous when I color. I started with the leaves and didn't know if I liked them or not. Was going to print out another image and try again but I thought let me try one more section. So I did the flower. That was o.k. so I kept going section by section.

 Then I came to the breast area. I wanted it to look more like ruffled feathers, so I took three different gray colors and randomly did dots of color. Wasn't for sure if it would turn out because I really don't know what I'm doing when it comes to coloring. 

I was so glad when I finally finished it and I'm happy with the way it turned out. 

I used a Spellbinders die to cut out the image. The sentiments come from two different stamp sets from Trinity Stamps. Green paper is from my stash and the ribbon is Melon Mambo from Stampin Up. 

I am entering this card into the Things with Wings linky party over a STAMPlorations. 

There is still time to enter a things with wings project if you want. You have until  Friday, May 7, 11:55 p.m. to enter a project and you can enter up to 7 projects. 


I am also entering this card into the following challenges

Life Is Beautiful Card

  Hello glad you stopped by. We are already more than  half way through April. Seems to be going by so fast. 

I have been having some fun in my craftroom creating some cards for some challenges.  

STAMPlorations is having their Things with Wings Blog Hop and Linky Party. My last two cards that I made was with birds. I entered them both in the linky party.

Today I have another card that I created for the link up and for a few other challenges.

For this card I used a stencil from STAMPlorations called Bloomdalascopic. This was my first time using a stencil and as you can see, I didn't do the best job at keeping the colors from mixing together and thought about starting over and seeing if I could do a little better the second try. But I decided to use it. 

It was actually a lot of fun to get my ink pads out and try a stencil. I'm going to have to get some more. 

I received that pretty little butterfly in some happy mail that someone had sent me. Glad to find the perfect card for it. 

The embossing folder is called Seeing Spots, All the inks used are from S.U. 

The sentiment is from My Creative Time stamp set called Cherish this Moment. Also used a scalloped rectangle cutting die and Mellow Moss Ribbon.

If you would like to join in on the fun and create a Things with Wings project there is still time. If you don't want to make anything you can still hop along and see the awesome creations from the design team. 

Here is a link for you.
