Orange Lilacs

Hello friends!  This is a bit different:  orange lilacs.  Here's how this came to be.  I had purchased this PSX Lilac stamp from an online sale site, and when it arrived, I wanted to test it to be sure it stamped well.  I chose a cardstock color that I don't use a lot of, in case the stamped image was less than desirable.  Then I wouldn't feel badly about tossing it, if it was no good. 😊

But, the lilacs stamped well so I saved the image.  I trimmed it out, and added it to a gardening book page (fitting!) and added a strip of orange patterned paper plus a few other elements.

My daughter saw it and loved it.  This gave me the confidence to go ahead and post it, even if it is a bit different.

Thanks for your visit!

A Quartet of Birds

Hello my friends,
It's been a while. 😀  Had not intended for so much time to pass, but life kept me oh-so-busy, and I was tired.  And then it became busy in a different way, and I am still tired.  LOL

I have been making cards so frequently, mostly on weekends.  The process of getting them nicely here to the blog is a process that I've had no energy for.  So glad I have several drafts lined up so I can pick from them, add supply lists and hit "publish".

These K & Co. bird stickers are beautiful, and easily dress up a card.  I have a stash of them and parcel them out a little at a time, as they are hard to find (or impossible?).
