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.

Mod Squad Challenge


This week Judy Woodland challenged us to do something different. The challenge was to  use a magazine, gift catalog, or any other periodical lying around, in some way on a card.
I chose to make a retirement card. I used page 5 of a Wind & Weather Catalog to create the inside of my pinwheel. http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/

    1. You are so nice Donna. The concept was a good one but the final product was TOO BIG. I'll definitely try again but make it a lot smaller!
      Thanks for looking and the nice comment!

    1. Judy,
      I thought the challenge could be a card or project so I was going to make a pinwheel. Then after I had it done I read your instructions and it said a card. So I'm thinking..how am I going to make this into a card rather than starting over. It ended up pretty big but I loved the idea & will actually do it again someday with a smaller card & pinwheel.
      Thanks for the nice comment :-)
