Happy Anniversary with a House Mouse Birdie Kiss!


Sunday was the 17th wedding anniversary for me and my husband.  We’ve had ups and downs, but we’ve remained together and gotten stronger.  And, this little House Mouse Birdie Kiss reminds me
of my husband who now remembers to bring me flowers.  It makes my heart melt.

I used the Stampendous House Mouse Birdie Kiss stamp for this card.  Isn’t just the cutest stamp.  I had colored it about a year and a half ago and set the image aside until I started making this card.  And, it is perfect!  The printed vellum in the background I picked up a few years ago on clearance and can’t remember the product name.  I used the Sue Wilson Scandinavian Collection – Background Die   and I also pulled out one of the Spellbinders dies.  I had a great deal of fun making this card for my husband and he really enjoyed receiving it.

Trying to start early…..



Last year Christmas slammed up on me quick and sent me scrambling to make Christmas cards for everyone.  Believe me, this took the fun out of card making.  This year I am trying (keyword is TRYING) to start a little early.

So, in the spirit of starting early a couple of friends and I got together and worked on Christmas cards.  We will try and do this at least once a month, hopefully—maybe if the moon and stars align and all that good stuff.

Anyway, last week I worked on mine.  I’ve had this poinsettia image that I colored last year and did not use.  Don’t know why.  Probably because in the frenzy I could not decide what to do with it.  So, I tackled putting this image on a card.



Supplies used:

Stampendous Create a Poinsettia Stamp Set and the matching dies

Sue Wilson Noble Collection – Ornate Pierced Design Dies

Sue Wilson  Double Pierced Rectangles

Sue Wilson Festive Collection Holly Sprays

Copic Markers (sorry don’t have the list used)

Memento Tuxedo Black

Bazzill cardstock

Garden Filled with Butterflies!

This past Monday I went shopping, with my friend, Debbie, to one of my favorite shops, Violette’s Scrapbook Store.  First, going to this store is very dangerous, it has 12–YES–12 rooms of stuff to shop!  Second, it has been months since I have been there.  And, third, it has been months since I have been shopping with Debbie.  So, needless to say, by the time I left Violette’s was a little richer and I was a little poorer .  But, to my defense they do have such pretty things that could not pass up.

Anyway, a couple of the stamps I  bought are from Northwoods and I could not wait to use in a card.  Butterflies are so much fun and I have always loved them.  I, of course, used my Sue Wilson dies.  But, I also used a new (or new to me) ink for stamping.  It works great with the Copics and stamps so well.  It is the My Favorite Things hybrid ink pad.  Believe me I will be buying additional colors to play with now since I’ve tried the black.

Here is the recipe for the card:

Northwoods Rubber Stamps:  09927 – front, D9940 – inside

Sue Wilson Noble Dies Double Pierced Rectangles

I hope everyone is having a great week and puts a little wild and crazy into their day.  We have only 1 life and it shouldn’t be lived boring!
