A Short Break...

Hi all,

Just a note to let you all know that beginning today, I will be taking a short break from BlogLand 
to take care of some long overdue family business.

If you don't see my smiling face on your blog comments, that's why!
I'll be back to my regular 'blurfing' in a week or so, and hope
to be able to explain things :)

All is well - no worries!

Hope you have a great week!

Hugs and blessings,

Patti J.

Thank You....

Hi everyone - Happy Friday!

I hope you have a fun weekend planned...

I've made a very quick, very easy card, using products from Crafter's Companion.
I love their pretty dies, and often need a quick card.

Here's what I made:

Isn't it pretty?

Thinking of you, just because!


Hi ya,

Needed a couple of very speedy cards, so pulled out some Heartfelt Creations papers, and
a couple of nice stamps, and here's what happened...





Hope your week is off to a great beginning!  I'm working fast and furiously, trying
to get lots of things pre-scheduled, as I'm flying to Germany on May 11th, to help DD with baby number 2, and spend some quality time with baby #1!!!  I'll be gone for 18 days, so must 
get things made and posted...

Take care, ya'll!

Speedy Recovery

Hello!
So glad you stopped by today!

It's time for a new Photo Inspiration challenge at The House that Stamps Built!

Here is the beautiful photo that we were given for inspiration:




When I looked at this photo, I was drawn to both the beautiful summery color, and of course, the daffodils!  So here is what I made today, using these Repeat Impressions Stamps:
8624-E Recovery


I stamped a focal panel with the sentiment, and carried out the beautiful yellow theme with my card base and matting. The Daffodils were stamped and fussy cut, then attached with some pop dots.
The finishing touches were to Glossy Accent the flowers, and add a bit of bling. Super quick
card, and I think it turned out very nicely! 

Now, it's your turn!
Come on over and join us in our Photo Inspiration Challenge!

Remember, you don't HAVE to use Repeat Impressions Stamps
but if you do, you have double the chance of winning!

Happy Birthday!

Hi there!

Just thought I'd share a card that was made for a friend.

The flower is from a Stampin'Up! set that my friend Shirley owns. The sentiment is an OLD standby from Hero Arts. Colored with Copic Markers.

I thought it turned out well!





Hope you are having a great day so far - Happy Monday!!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Patti J.
