Play Day for Me!

Spent the morning with friends making cards. Had lots of fun and learned new techniques. I’m not including any directions for these, but if you want them please message me. It’s always fun to get my crafting on with old friends and new. Thanks to my friend Jeanette, todays Play date was 😎 awesome 👏

Christmas Cards

FA0B6204-2B14-459A-8251-056BFB827350Good morning!  I hope you have a fabulous weekend.

This year instead of making New Years Resolutions I’m going to choose a word to keep me going.  I never am able to keep my ‘resolutions’ all year and I’m hoping that my one word will keep me going for 352 more days!  Please join me in Sparkling ✨ for 2018.

Happy New Year!

Christmas was a busy time and being sick didn’t help. Thank goodness the Dr. Didn’t put me in the hospital. This virus was nasty!

Since I have been stuck inside trying to get well, I’ve been playing with lots of mediums. Mixed media that includes gesso, gel medium, acrylic paint, shiny sparkles, gold foil and foil glues, vinyl on dinner plates with my new Cricut Maker, an Electric embossing and die cutting machine and Heidi Swapps Minc Machine. I also finally learned how to cleanly heat emboss. I know a little slow but better late than never! Here are some of my creations.

All cards were made with FunStampersJourney products and can be found on my page at:

The mixed media Christmas Jar was a gift for a friend and I purchased the media at a big box Craft store after seeing similar items while traveling this past fall.

I’m back in my crafting space and will share my projects as I make them!
