About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.  My first attempt to make a card using the same stamp for the background as the image was a disaster.  The water coloring was fine but the wash behind the image was horrible.  I tried a couple of different things but ended up just cutting the flower out and putting a flourish behind it.  So MUCH better.


  1. I am waiting for this ugly paper challenge!
