It’s March and St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner.  If you have been reading my blog for a while, you probably noticed that I LOVE Irish music and culture so I really enjoy this time of year.   I  instantly fell in love with this sweet little duck, Lucky Duck, as soon as I saw him.   He shows that on St. Patrick’s Day, we all can be a little Irish.

Just in case you haven’t seen the new releases for March on the Meljen’s Designs blog, I’ll share a peek with you.   Melissa released 7 new digital stamps and 6 pre-colored digis.   (If you haven’t used pre-colored digis, you might want to check out the awesome blog post by fellow DT member Nicole HERE.)




There are other new events over at the Meljen’s Designs blog beginning this month.  Now the DT is going to take turns posting on the blog.  You can expect to see posts about their favorite Meljen’s images, their creative process, photos of their crafting spaces and even tutorials.   (Did you see my tutorial on faux brads yesterday?)


Oh, before I go, the new challenge this week is a sketch challenge.   Check out the sketch and the DT’s creations on the Meljen’s Designs blog.  Don’t forget to link up your creation using the sketch for your chance to win some Meljen’s Designs digis.  


Don’t forget to check out my March Followers Blog Candy.  Click HERE for more info.

Okay, Berry the Snowman doesn’t have the same ring as Frosty, but I think his cuteness totally makes up for it.  This is another one of the images that I colored during my crafting day with a friend before Thanksgiving.  I’m happy I had the chance to get him on a card.    Have a great week!  Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Berry from Stacy Yacula Studio at Purple Onion DesignsInks:  Memento Tuxedo Black Papers:  Neenah Classic Craft Solar White CS, Papertrey kraft CS, Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pad 6x6 Tools:  Sewing machine, Big Shot, Papertrey Doily details die, Stampin’ Up corner punch, Copic markers Embellishments:  May Arts Burlap twine, Tattered Angels glimmer mist, button Challenges:Clear It Out 2W, 3E, Must use stash item - Challenge: Anything Goes Stash Item:Anything Goes (Twine, button, die cut – had it cut and sitting in a bin since last Xmas)Loves Rubber Stamps W - #82 Anything Goes ChristmasOldie But A Goodie Challenge 2W, must use something at least 6mts ol…
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.
