April 17, 2020 176 Comments

Hello everyone!  Thank you so much for hopping along on this "Spread Joy Not Germs" Hop!  There are so many prizes along the way so make sure to comment.  But most importantly sit back and enjoy all the amazing projects you will see!  I am so inspired by our crafty friends who want to spread the joy during these hard times.  I want to take the time to remind us all to give yourself, and others, grace during this time.  Everyone is experiencing something different and challenging in their own way.  

OK, onto the fun!  Today I'm playing with Catherine Pooler's Color Bursts!  These are AMAZING!  They are literally magic.  First you don't see them, then you do! HA! Love it!  Check out this video to see how this card came together!

Spellbinders Sunday Drive Die Set
April 17, 20200 Comments

During these times, there are a few things we can do as crafters.  The first one is craft...the second is possibly go for a drive. (If your state rules allow).  That's why this Sunday Drive Die set from Spellbinders  really had my heart today.  I was so excited to make these cards and just enjoy the therapy that is cardmaking.  The dies are like a puzzle piece too so I got to exercise my brain just a bit as well. Join me on YouTube for a full tutorial on how to put this together.
