Welcome New Baby Boy

Welcome New Baby Girl

Aren’t these the cutest cards for that Brand New Baby Boy or Girl!!!

They are very different than the average, “run of the mill” cards with all the extra enhancements that I added.  First of all the Style of the card is really eye catching. I think these cards lean more towards the “Keepsake” Category, don’t you?

I included details of all the goodies I added to each card including Stickles Glitter, Flower Soft, Flocking for babies jammies, Liquid Pearls on flowers and bows and stork.  These cards and the decoupage involved very intricate fussy hand cutting.

Unfortunately my photography skills aren’t that great so the pics don’t really do these cards justice.

As I mentioned in my “Hi Honey” Post that I am now selling my cards on Etsy as well in my store!  I am inviting you all to visit the stores and check out some new cards that I have posted.

  • The New Baby Boy card measures 6-1/2 x 7-1/2 and comes with a matching themed envelope!
  • The New Baby Girl Card measures 6-1/4 x 8 and comes with a matching themed envelope! Both items are sealed in a clear plastic sleeve.

Thanks for looking and I hope you all get a chance to visit my stores!




Posted in 2018, From Card to Keepsake

Hi Honey…I’m Home!

Well folks, after “stepping back” from everything for a couple months to re-group, I’m back and very excited about a couple new ventures.  I have some great new items for 2018 and a couple Announcements to boot.

First, let me start with the Announcements:

I am now selling my fabulous Greeting Cards/Keepsakes on Etsy!

  • Featured on Etsy are some of my “newer” items from mid-late 2017 (a couple of which I have posted here.)
  • A couple of the all time “Favs”
  • Brand NEW items that I was working on while I was taking some time off.

We as Crafters/Designers all know about ourselves, ya don’t really STOP the creativity that is in our Hearts, Souls and Minds!  I just kind of put a “comma” in the paragraph of my imagination.  So with that said on to my Second Announcement:

While I was enjoying some time off I did a little shopping locally and happened to have bounced into a darling Antique Boutique Shop (my second love – antiques) called          MS. Peddler’s Boutique in Antioch, IL. in the Great Lakes area.  In talking to the sales gal there, I mentioned I did some rather unique Handmade Greeting Cards and gave her my business card.  A couple weeks later I got an invitation from the Owner, Laura, asking if I would like to put some of my items in her store!  I was very excited and couldn’t get back to my studio fast enough to put together a presentation for her. (I did, she liked them, they are there!) So if anyone is in the area and would like to give your eyes an absolute Party, ya need to stop in an just take in all the wonderful items that this clever Boutique has.  Laura has several Artisans in the shoppe along with her beautiful works of art and finished furniture pieces!  Here is the link:

Here is a little “taste” of not only my cards but Peddlers beautiful refurbished pieces!

Couple of new furniture items to the floor as well plus a couple of unique storage ideas. Be sure to pop in open today till 4 p.m. Sunday 11 to 3 – 986 Main Street Antioch Illinois..224 267 0085″
