Spring Cleaning!

Hello my stamping friends! Its time to clean out for Spring! I am cleaning out my store room of 5 years! And it has been very emotional for me, I have realized that I saved these things for the memories more than the items themselves! I found BIG DADDYS golf bag and had to touch it and try to feel his tender loving spirit and support of our family! HE MADE US ALL FEEL SAFE AND STONG LIKE HIM!  Then a box that had spilled out left black and pink wire hair rollers, that I used to fix my Mothers all white hair. It was a once a week for church thing and it was a time to visit and catch up! We often came to my house to to fix her hair and have meal and so it turned into a good long visit and fun time together! Kyle & Rusty reminisced over golf stuff and helped me to load my clothes racks so I can redo my closet! I had to go get in the truck to hide my tears, and as I tell you this again today I still have had some tears to run down my cheeks! But I am realizing the blessings that we …

Rainy Day Therapy!

Have you ever had so many blessings in one week that you  are just giddy! Well that happens to me often and this week was no exception! First we traveled to Portals New Mexico to see our oldest son Tres Segler become the new head Coach of Eastern New Mexico University! Please go to you tube and see his press conference.  We are so proud and excited to have been a part of this wonderful new journey in their lives! He was the former assistant at Mid Western University, and they are leaving some wonderful friends behind! I know that they will form a new extended family and many will be blessed by this move! Next I got to keep Kyle and Ashley's sweet little Landry that is four months! She is just the easy going laid back little love of our lives! She is smiling and talking all of the time and I can not help being so amazed as I watch Poppie who is smitten by her!  My cards today are to get you some free inspiration and rainy day therapy! Lots of rain here in Little Elm on the pond. Wa…

Sunday Blessings!

Hello sweet art friends! I am rejoicing today and counting my many blessings and have been singing hymns that remind me of my mother and father.  I miss them but often remember the best gift they gave me was my FAITH! I have made so many wonderful friends through my art of stamping, and I spent the day with two of them yesterday! Lorna and Betty keep me laughing and creating! We mades several very different and awesome cards. I will post them later. These cards are to get you inspired today to not just make some cards but to send them out!  It feels so good to get something in the mail that is not bill and not a email! So be inspired to make some cards this week, count your blessings, and remember a friend by sending cards!  The card with the chick and balloons was made using the new balloon punch from stampin up. It is so quick and easy and looks different with each designer paper you try! The right side has been die cut and placed over solid paper so that it shows through and adds a…


Have been traveling again and keeping my grand girls! I am posting several cards for you since, I will leave again soon. I hope to see some of your samples ! This card is so beautiful that the picture does not give it justice!  The background is a sparkle paper that is dark purple, the die cuts are in cream and turquoise and they give it such a pop of color! The edge die sis the new stampin up die from the wildflower set. It is very different and versatile in use. Had a great time making these with my stamp friends Debbie and Lorna! 
I just love this look so thankful that my stamp friend Betty reminded us of it!  This project is on a purple verigated shimmer sheet. It has a texture of  plastic mixed with metal and hold she very well when put into embossing folder.  The folder gives it the look of being hand carved. After embossing I sanded the raised portion to remove the color and that really makes the design more vivid and totally changes the look. It is backed on lighter purse and p…
