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.

Spring Forward

On Wed. 2/25/15  Susan Sieracki at http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/  challenged us to make a card that reminded us of Spring.
One of the things I like about Spring is the way the air smells after a rain. The snow disappears and the tiny shoots of crocus, tulips, and other varieties of spring flowers appear.  With the first Spring rain and robin sighting, I know summer is just around the corner.

Paper Takes Its Tole

As everyone in the card making business knows, a challenge is meant to challenge you. This week my former good friend (Just kidding Judy) was the creator of this week’s challenge.  Needless to say not all of us have the talents and abilities Judy has.  I am among the masses that look at her creations and say “I wish I could do that”. 
This week Judy and The Mod Squad Challenge Blog  http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/
challenged us to do a PAPER TAKES ITS TOLE card.
I struggled for three days with this challenge and despite my best efforts could not come up with anything as beautiful as Judy’s sample card.  Never the less I persevered and this if my card.
Thanks Judy for the challenge and inspiration.
Ps: I was trying so hard to do Judy’s challenge justice I glued my entire card upside down. But it’s okay Judy, you’re still my friend :-)
