New Blog Design and Blog Candy!

Sunday, January 21, 2018

My blog got a facelift this week and I'm so excited!  Thanks to Trina Moore of Pish and Posh Studio for her amazing graphic talent...and for putting up with me!  

It takes me forever to make decisions like this.   I've been thinking about making a design change for months and have been looking at a lot of different designs.  One of my resolutions was to spruce things up and the design was the first step.

To celebrate, I have some blog candy to give away!  Just leave a comment by January 31st and let me know your thoughts (and any suggestions) on the new design and become a follower of my blog.  I'll pick a random winner from all the comments and post the winner here on February 1st!


Rose Garden Love

I'm so ready for spring!  The weather has been in the high 40's the last couple days so much of the white stuff has melted - yay - and I even heard birds this morning!  I know we still have more winter ahead, but this reprieve is very welcomed :)

For my card, I chose to use some pretty, light Spring-feeling things from Reverse Confetti.  The white background was cut using the Link Circles Cover Panel. For the flowers and leaves, I chose the Rose Garden stamps and dies and added the little Bitty Banners sentiment to finish.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration - and filling my craft room with spring!


Saturday Coffee Cafe - Keep Warm

Saturday, January 20, 2018


Happy Saturday and welcome to the cafĂ©!  I’m so glad you stopped by and hope you’ll hang for a bit.


It doesn’t matter where you are in the states, it’s COLD!  I heard on the news that all 50 states have seen snow.  Wow – that’s unheard of!!  Thankfully, our temps are starting to ‘heat’ up…it was in the 30’s today and felt downright fabulous!  The perfect day for some hot cocoa :)
For my card, I started with a pretty plaid paper from MyFavorite Things.  I loved the bright colors which reminded me of Valentine’s Day, yet had a ‘cool’ feel.  The adorable images and sentiment are from Newton’s Nook Cup of Cocoa which I colored with Copics.

Whether it’s coffee, tea or cocoa, I hope your beverage of choice keeps you toasty warm on these cold, winter days!
