Taking Crafting Shortcuts

You might have noticed that I’m not a kit dog, but yesterday I’ve discovered how valuable kits can be. Things like Paper Pumpkin and the Timeless Tidings Kit can really save you in a pinch. We’ve been stamping and doing all the things that the holidays require. We’ve been blessed with Christmas cards from many of you, from relatives and friends. Although I feel like we share our hearts with you when we share cards with you, is that enough? We wish we could send cards to everyone, but then I’d never be able to bark my posts! So, here’s just some of what Ann...

What a Difference a Day Makes

Tuesday night we got together with our local stamp club and made this card.  It’s a fun night where everyone Well, that was okay.  Everyone liked it a lot.  It’s a card that really speaks to our man friends. Fast forward to Wednesday.  Ann and I agreed that we should show it on our Wednesday Live Stream show.  But you know how it is – especially with sponging.  It’s never going to be exactly the same – and it wasn’t. During the show, Ann explained her thought process during the card.  There’s not much Blackberry...
