About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 55 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, tatting, X 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.

Interactive Valentine Cards

This weeks challenge on Simon Says Stamp is to make an interactive card.  I have 8 great-grandchildren and thought it would be fun to make interactive Valentine's Day cards for them.  They turned out cute and I think the kids will enjoy them.

Card & matching envelope

I'm not used to making matching envelopes so this was a big challenge.  The card doesn't have to be mailed until Monday so maybe it's still a work in progress :-)

SSS Something New

My something new is alcohol ink on photo paper framed with a new square die. I also tried some new alcohol lift ink with a snowflake stamp on the background piece but I couldn't get it to work. The recommended alcohol is 90% and I only had 70% so I have a much more subtle pattern.  I think it's worth continuing to practice.  Hopefully the next one will be even prettier.
