Hello Sunshine


I love the warm sunshine! Actually I love dark and gloomy rainy days too. LOL 
This card was made using the June 2020 Paper Pumpkin kit. The elements and sentiment stamps for this kit are so pretty! I love the gold accents.

Have a sunshiny day!

Though We Are Far Apart...

Mike Mike Mike Mike Mike
Do you know what day it is?
Hump Day!

On Monday I decided to get out some CTMH watercolors and try my hand at creating a background on my card for a sketch challenge. 


I'm not very adventurous when it comes to card making. I tend to have a comfort zone that I stay in and enjoy, but I was feeling adventurous and this is what happened.


Close To My Heart watercolors

The sentiment banner overlapped the top
of one of the houses, so I used one of my Micron markers
to draw on the part it overlapped.
(I told you I was feeling adventurous.)

Happy Hump Day!

We live in an old house that we are renovating.

In the entrance hall is a hump in the floor where things have gotten a little out of whack in the last 130 years or so. We call it Wednesday..... get it?..... hump day.... Wednesday. I crack myself up sometimes. hahahaha




Thank you for visiting!
Enjoy your hump day.

Oh, Happy Day!


Every time I see the phrase, Oh Happy Day, I instinctively sing it like the song, "Oh Happy Day. Oh Happy Day. When Jesus washed. Oh when He washed. When Jesus washed. Oh when He washed. He washed my sins away. Oh happy day." Can you believe way back in the 80s when I was in high school, we actually sang that song in a chorus concert. That was when people weren't afraid to mention Jesus or God in school. I'm not saying you HAVE to mention it. I'm just saying don't get so offended if I do. :)
