Time for some pens....

I've been showing off my cards...and my cards....and my cards.....but what about the pens? Oh my word! Richard does such beautiful work. If you choose to order one of these pens, I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed. Graduation, Mother's Day, Father's Day, birthdays....they're all coming up aren't they? And especially for Father's Day....does he really need another tie? I thought not.....check out this picture and see if something doesn't attract your attention.....And there are a lot more pics and available pens in our etsy shop at Please stop by and take a look.....I'm hoping you'll fall in love!

These are all acrylic pen blanks.....I'll have pictures of some pens made with gorgeous wood blanks soon!!! (I'm guessing Richard will be happy when tax season is over and he can get back out into his workshop a little more frequently!

Football lockout? Not at my house!

Here is a custom card I made for a dear friend, at her request.

I hope the recipient of the card enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!! Isn't that football guy just too cute? He was sooooo easy to make with my Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and my cricut! It all came together so easily!! Enjoy!!!

Faith, hope, trust

Pretty important words, aren't they? They're captured beautifully in this stamp I used from Stampin' Up! I used pumpkin pie ink, a cuttlebug embossing folder (dotted swiss) and some decorative paper and cardstock, also from Stampin' Up! What a cheerful note to send to a relative or dear friend, to let them know they're being thought of.

As always, thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear what you think!!
