Good Morning! 
I do hope this finds you all well and keeping warm.  Chilly and windy here but the sun is shinning.  I'm hoping to spend a crafty day in  the Closet, it's warm in there.

I’d like to extend a warm welcome to my new followers. I’m thrilled to have you and hope you will enjoy your visits.

I have no idea how you lovely ladies manage to create, blog and comment so religiously. I can’t manage it, life seems to get in the way. I must admit I aggravate people because it always takes me longer to accomplish most things then it does most people. Lets faced it I’m SLOW.  Please forgive me for not commenting on your blogs more often.  I will try to do better.

I have several DCWV 12 x 12 mat stacks which have ALL gone unloved, some for years. Not sure why I keep buying PP as I have such a difficult time using it but I am determined to grow and get past that. Although I didn’t use a template I have loosely followed the One Sheet Wonder principle. This set uses DCWV The Garden Party Stack plus some cream and black cardstock. I spend quite a bit of time sitting in doctor’s waiting rooms, to keep from going totally bonkers I try to take something crafty to occupy myself while I wait. On a recent visit I sat and cut out these butterflies. I hope to sell these cards at a local spring craft fair.


These are quite simple but if you have any questions about what I’ve used I’ll be happy to tell you.

Have an Amazing Day!

  6. Those cards are really lovely, and all so different. If I have appointments like that, I tend to take my Kindle and read. If I am cutting out, I need a good light and sometimes a magnifier. Age is galloping up. Thank you for your visit and your lovely comments. Have a good week. xx Maggie
