Make it in Minutes

I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards and projects that take only minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.


I purchased the Anna Griffin Jacket Card Cut and Embellish Dies Flower and Butterfly on auto ship in January and I am so happy I did. I am also sorry to say that they are currently out of stock, but I am hopeful they will come back, however you can still purchase this die set.


For this card, I used Anna Griffin paper from my collection. I also used flowers and a sentiment from one of my Anna Griffin card sets. I glued down the spine instead of tying a ribbon around the card jacket.

Have a wonderful day!

Sad News and Missing All of You......

Hello everyone. Sorry for the lack of posts. My husband's father passed away and we have been busy dealing with his affairs  in Arizona for the last nine days.  We are home for two days and then gone again next week, so it may be awhile until I have time to work on new projects.

 A special thanks to our friend and house sitter Sue, we are forever grateful.

Thank you for your patience and I hope to create some new projects in time for St. Patrick's day.

Miss you all......
