Little Whitnell Cottage

Happy weekend!!! I hope your week was great! Ours was!!! We had a lovely lovely time at our little vacation cottage: Little Whitnell Cottage near Nether Stowey in Somerset, England. Today I have this card to share, a few photos and a little bit on our cottage renting experience… Back in the days my ex and I used to own a timeshare. The places we went to were nice and they were definitely better than a hotel. We didn’t own the timeshare for long but while owning it I was introduced to home/cottage rentals and I told myself that one

A Sketch and a Hop

Today is a special day because I get to use my blog to do something nice! I have a thing for old people, especially little sweet old men, they make me go “awwwwww” and reminds me of my own grandpa. but in general, lot of them just brings a smile to my face. A little squeeze on my arm, a little laugh, home made cookies, whatever… old folks gives me the warm and fuzzies. I especially love loving elderly couples.

On Settling

As a military family we think about where we’ll be next. If I can have it my way I’d love it if we stay overseas until hubby’s done with the military.

I love America but I feel like there are still so many places to see out there, old and ancient places especially.

I dunno, just curious I guess. So, hopefully the weather will be decent and we can all have a nice shopping + outdoorsy time. Here’s my day two of WPlus9’s Sept. release countdown project: A fun card AND I colored!!!! I used water pencil, Prismacolor, for the coloring and SU’s blending pen. I dunno about you pro colorers but I

Cute as a Bee

It’s a weekend again, YEA!!!!!! We’re not sure what we’ll be doing but for sure I have a little card created using this week’s new sketch from Waltzingmouse aka the Mischief Makers, sketch #12. It’s a bit busy BUT, wouldn’t a little four-yr-old love this little number? Here’s a close-up of the card: I used Tim Holtz embossing folder again. I really LOVE!! Then I tied two seam bindings together into a pretty bow. These seam binding were normal ones that I scrunched up. My camcorder is in the mail somewhere. After I get it I’ll share with you how
