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.

Week 3 Outlawz guest designer

Here we are already into week 3 of Friday Color Challenges at Outlawz. My digi is by Sugar Nellie colored with Spectrum Noir pens. I made all the flowers by hand including the white one on the left with the tiny quilled fringed center.  The paper is from Stampin' Up and the dies are Spellbinders.

Week 2 Guest Designer

Here is my 2nd card as a Guest Designer for Outlawz Friday Color Challenge.
The theme is :Celebrate World Postage Day
As usual (for me) I read it wrong as Celebrate World Postal Day. So my card has a mailbox and no postage stamp........typical :-(

Here is a blanket & taggie I made for my new great-grandson and a necklace & earrings I made for my sister. The bottom piece of glass I purchased.  I just added the chain & beads.
