Sunflower Teddy

I love this image from Whimsy and Stars Studio.   Is this teddy just the sweetest?  He’s my latest favorite.

I also used some of my stash of washi tape on this card.   I’m getting sooo bad!  I swear I want almost every color and pattern I see.

Thank you to every one that sent birthday wishes to my Dad for his 70th birthday.   The party went really well.  We had about 60 people!   I didn’t get a chance to take many pictures because I was busy greeting people and taking care of the food, etc.   I hope to get the pictures my brother took soon. 


Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!

You're right this teddy is just gorgeous. Fabulous coloring. The Washi tape is lovely. I bought some of that tape and I didn't understand what it was - it wouldn't stick to what I bought it for so I threw it away! How stupid was that??

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.
