Happy Father's Day!

When choosing an idea for a Father's Day card for my husband, I decided to go with a humorous one. He has been really busy lately, getting a new pole barn put up, and slab. With this Louisiana heat, it really has drained him. So, I thought I'd see if I could put a smile on his face for his special day. Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. Wish my Dad was still living for me to have the opportunity to wish him greetings today. What a difference one day can make. So, if you still have your Dad/Husband, let him know you care. TFL

Happy Birthday CATIE!

There is a little lady in our family that calls my DH "Paw Paw Tim", and she recently celebrated another birthday. I made this card for her, and it was very simple. You, too, could make one within minutes. I got an old wallpaper book, and cut out this little hippo.(I thought it was so cute), attached it to cardstock, added ribbon and brads, and it is as simple as that. Think outside the box on things you can use on your cards. TFL

Flower Pot Card

Can you believe this? Yesterday I posted my flower pot card that Dolores had brought to me when she came to visit. Today, I received this flower pot card in the mail from my friend, Deb. How strange is that to receive 2 cards almost alike, from 2 different friends, one living in SD, and one in KS! Thanks so much, Deb, for thinking of me. Deb is another card-making friend of mine that I would like to meet some day. Pay her blog a visit at:

Thinking Of You

Several years ago I was asked to be a designer for a company that sold card making kits. The first gal already on the team to welcome me, was Dolores. She and I became good friends on the Internet. Then, about 2 1/2 years ago, we both met in Branson(she lives in SD and I live in LA), and I got to "see" her for the first time. Our friendship has continued over the years, and she has become very dear to me. What a thrill I had recently to learn that she and part of her family would be making a quick trip to the wonderful state of Louisiana. And guess what? Her DH was so sweet to bring her by my house for a short visit. Thanks a bunch, Mel. Dolores brought me some card making supplies as a little surprise , and some were handmade. Aren't I special!! Sharing with you the card Dolores brought to me. It is just darling. She even brought me the pattern for it. Thanks so much, Dolores, for just being a very special friend to me.

Get Well Soon!

My niece, Peggy, went in for back surgery today. My last update was that all went well, and I am very grateful. I know she would appreciate your prayers in this long recovery period. It's gonna be hard on her to slow down, with all the "irons in the fire" that she has. I made her this Get Well card. It is a stair-step card, which is made by just scoring on a piece of cardstock to make your creases, and then decorate. It folds up very nicely for mailing. Thanks so much for looking.
