Happy Thursday! The Meljen’s Designs DT has another fun challenge for you. This week we are challenging you to use PINK & PEARLS.

For my card, I used one of Melissa’s new images, Swan Princess. I thought she would look perfect on a birthday card for a girl. The sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs, another talented Whimsy Stamps designer.

I hope you will join us for our PINK & PEARLS challenge. You can find all the challenge details on the Meljen’s Designs blog.

I still need votes for my Majestic Eagle card. You can VOTE HERE. You can see my original post HERE.

Thank you for stopping by!

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
