Easter or Baby Sweetness


This little lamb is pure sweetness!!

I colored the fleece with assorted Subtle Stampin' Write Markers.


Here is a GREAT stamp mounting tip: Cut the sentiment off the image and mount it on a different plane of the block! By separating the image and words, this image becomes much more versatile. The Lamb can be for a Baby Card, Birthday, or Spring Card. The words can be used with other images for Easter.


Happy Easter OR Welcome Baby!! It's delightfully charming, either way!

Easter Lamb - wood only

Helping Me Grow


I created two version of the daisies from Helping Me Grow Stamp Set of 15 images. I used watercolor paper for both, but changed the techniques.


First, I spritzed the watercolor paper with water and then added one drop of Daffodil Delight reinker to each image and let it bleed. This is a very "unstructured" way to add color.....artsy.


On this card, the watercolor paper was dry. I added Daffodil Delight with a wet Aqua Painter for a more controlled color. I absolutely LOVE the little corner bracket stamps in this set!!! SWEET! Both cards have GOLD Wink of Stella glitter pen on the brown centers. Which version do you like best?

Baby Shower


Recently, I flew to Illinois for a very special Baby Shower! It was a WONDERFUL celebration for our very first grandchild, due to Katie & Tim in April. Here is our group "baby hug," me, Katie and Aunt Kelly.


The hostesses were Kelly Ferb, sister, and Melissa Masters, cousin of the mommy-to-be. The decorations were adorable following the black, white and yellow theme of rain clouds and "You are my Sunshine!"

Table 2

There were yellow daisies in bowls of thickened jello - sooo unique!


Cute cupcakes and paper goods!


Lots of ADORABLE, much needed baby items!!


Katie loved the rag quilt I made for her nursery!
