Serene Hunter

Today I am showcasing a card that Hunter designed.  I am amazed at the transformation of the Tip Top Taupe with the sponging.  The purple hue of it disappears with the Night of Navy and Mint Macaron.  She softened some of the edges with sponging and produced a beautiful sympathy card:

Independence Day Celebration!

I just love the Fourth of July.  When my son was a baby, the movie Independence Day came out.  We were visiting friends in Escanaba, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula.  It was an awesome time and my little Marcus, just 9 1/2 months old, sat on my lap for the whole movie, mouth open, eyes wide, riveted to the screen.  Ever since then, I started the tradition that, after walking home from the July 3rd fireworks display in town, we all stay up and watch Independence Day.  Reminiscing, it started on a VHS tape…then eventually DVD…and now we have it on Blu-Ray.  We don’t get to sleep until around 2am, but I have a great time (and I hope the kids do, too).  So, to quote my favorite Patriotic movie, “Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!”

Wild About Flowers

I finally got around to playing with a new stamp set this evening. I knew as soon as I saw Wild About Flowers Photopolymer Stamp Set in the new Annual Catalog that it would be my favorite set. Crisp, clean impressions with the photopolymer make me ever-so-happy!  There are a couple retired* items on the card…so pay no attention to those 🙂
