Today it is raining! YEAH!  It has been so long since it has rained, just the smell in the air is something to be cherished in California. Oh my goodness, the rain is just pouring such a great sound on a tin roof of the patio.

Today is going to be a lazy day, I think I will get those Sympathy cards done so I can get them mailed.  Strange how the older you get, the more people pass.  A co-workers father passed away, then my father-in-law passed away, then a co-worker of my husband mother passed away and then another co-workers aunt died all within 2 weeks period. I hope that this is not a trend, or maybe I just need to get some younger friends!

Very interesting.  I have seen Laura B do this technique a lot of times, however never been bold enough to try it.  Not too bad for my first time. Had to use the back side of the stamp set because it wasn’t very wide. Need to get the other set and try it again.

Day One- Heat Embossing

Had a bad time with my embossing powder, I guess even those that are really good have issues at times. The embossing powder I used really didn’t work, but I thought it was worth still posting

Day 1- Clean and Simple Heat Embossing

Clean & Simple Techniques made simple challenge day one. Heat Embossing. Boy I didn’t realize that I had embossing powder that didn’t work, by the way I threw them in the trash can. Still I learned a technique that I can use later in my card making.


Make a Wish was made to give to my Dad on his 84th Birthday. Felt that it was a good card for a male.
