It’s been awhile since I’ve posted!  With the new format here in WordPress and me being extremely non-techy,  well let’s just say its been hard for this old dog to learn any new tricks!  (Took me so long just to figure out how to upload a photo.)  But let’s give it a try.


This is a silly card for that friend in your life who has celebrated several 49th birthdays.  I have a few of those dear friends myself!!


This second card is just a quick and easy somewhat masculine card.

The word squares are popped up to give it a little interest and dimension.
