Wildflowers for Freshly Made Sketches 637

When I first saw the Wildly Flowering Suite Collection in the new catalog, I immediately fell in love with the paper.  Yes, I must confess I am a paper addict.  I went ahead and ordered the whole suite though, because I could, right?  Let me tell you, those stamps are as sweet as sweet can be! 

I decided to play along with  Freshly Made Sketches today in order to show them off.  Below is my inspiration and my card:

Gardening the easy way with Stampin’ Up!


When Spring comes, I start dreaming about a backyard garden.  I lovingly look through catalogs and purchase beautiful plants.  After planting, reality sets in.  Weeding……watering……and more weeding.  My dream turns into a nightmare!

This year will be different.  While I’m still planting things, I’m not planting the quantity that I have in years past.  I’m also planting more perennials so there will be even less to do next year.

What am I going to do in my spare time?  Make beautiful cards using all of the floral images in the new Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog!  Today I have a card for you that features the Thoughtful Journey Suite.  The Thoughtful Wishes Bundle in the suite includes stamps and dies that are beautiful and versatile. And you can’t make an ugly card using the Thoughtful Journey 6×6 Designers Series Paper Pack!

Frog and Friends


One of the many things about retirement is spending more time with the grandkids.  Hailey loves to craft and make cards so I rely on Stampin’ Ups! Online Kits a great deal.  We recently made up the Frog and Friends Kit.  This kit makes adorable animals that you use for a catching game.  There is a shark, fish and frog. The kit makes 3 of each character.

Hailey is eight.  This kit is perfect for kiddos that are that age or older.  She loves playing this game!  Here’s Hailey wearing her best fish face!
This kit is a must have if you have kids in your family!  I guarantee a good time!


P.S.  Can you please forward this to any crafty friends you have?  I’m trying to grow my audience. Thanks!
