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.

Mix It Up

This weeks challenge on the Mod Squad challenge Blog was to "Mix It Up" using at least two stamps from different stamp sets.   http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/    I chose to use three sets by Gina  K.
The circle with leaves is Branching Out illustrated by Melanie Muenchinger. The butterfly was stamped, fussy cut and popped up.  The set is Hope Grows by Theresa Momber. And finally the sentiment was from Stenciled Spring. TFL

Watercolor Stamping

This week on The Mod Squad Challenge Blog we were challenged to use Watercolor Stamping.
This was my first try and it was pretty good until I tried to fix a teeny tiny spot on one of the leaves.  Will I ever learn to leave well enough alone........doubt it.  Still I really like it and hope you do to.  TFL
