My friend (and hairdresser) Eva’s birthday was last month, so I was late in giving her her birthday card last week when I had my hair appointment.  Anyway, this gave me more time to actually make her a card, something that I have neglected doing, as you can tell from my lack of card making […]

Michael Chiarello “Yum” ATC and a Birthday Card

Ladybug Handmade Birthday Card

My best friend, Li’s younger daughter, Jocelyn – Jocie as we all call her – has the same birthday as moi, December 26.  I am exactly thirty years older than she is, so there is no excuse for me to forget her birthday or age, except of course, when I can’t remember my own age.  Heh, heh, heh.  Anyway, […]

French Memo Board Handmade Birthday Card

At the beginning of this year, I made it a goal to make and give out more handmade birthday cards to my friends and family. Well, as you can see from my lack of posts, I didn’t quite hit that goal – far from it. However, a few days ago, I realized my cousin, Chris’s birthday was […]

Spring Themed Handmade Birthday Card

I have a group of girlfriends that get together for each others’ birthdays throughout the year.  One of them, Kathryn, had her birthday earlier this month.  To celebrate, we got together over the weekend and took her out for dinner.  I baked her a lemon cake – lemon being her favorite flavor – and made […]

Card Making with Martha Stewart Punches

When it comes to craft supplies, I have accumulated a small collection of paper punches from Martha Stewart and EK Success.  I love the beautiful designs of these types of punches, and I see why some crafters are collectors/hoarders of them.  If I had more storage (and a bigger budget for craft supplies), I would […]
