No Place Like the Nest


Recently I purchased several stamp sets from Taylored Expressions.   I love this set – Bless Your Nest.   I also purchased the matching die cut.   Don’t you just love the nest?


I don’t always make the traditional card for a holiday.   I made this one for my Mama for Mother’s day.   After all she is the mother bird that raised me.   There were times she told us as children that we reminded her of baby birds with our mouths open; always hungry..


I colored the leaves with my copic markers and added some fun washi tape to help embellish the card.


Products used:   Lime twist – My Minds Eye.  CTMH – Tulip. Chocolate. Breeze. Desert Sand. Cashmere. TE – Bless this nest and matching die cuts. Distress ink – Vintage Photo. Sewing tool. Washi tape. CHF – Mothers Day Centers. Spellbinders – Labels 6.

Play Ball

I know several people that love baseball.   This stamp set from Crafty Secrets is a great set to use for your favorite baseball fan.


This is a fairly simple card with not a lot of bling.  Guys don’t always like that sort of thing.


I  cut out the window using my Silhouette Cameo and layered some designer paper behind. The image is stamped and colored with water colors and copic markers.


Products used:   CTMH – D1475 – Card Chatter – Birthday. Bamboo. Cashmere. Crafty Secrets – Play Ball. Silhouette Cameo. SU – Watercolor wonder. Copic Markers. Sewing tool. Distress ink – Vintage photo.

A Walk in the Park

A couple of weeks ago I grabbed my camera and headed to Kathryn Albertson Park in Boise.  It is a nature park.   I was hoping to find a few goslings wandering around but the geese were still nesting.

The turtles were even sunning themselves.

As I was wandering down the path I spotted several deer enjoy the shade back in the brush.


This has been a beautiful spring for the flowing trees.




Isn’t this the best shade of pink ever?


I ended the afternoon attending  a birthday party for this little cutie.

Her brother was a bundle of energy and had fun rolling down the hill at the park.
