A Dozen Thoughts

Friday I told you I was headed down to stamp after working on the trim for my pantry, so today I thought I would share with you one of the cards that I created. It is bright and cheerful I think and will hopefully cheer up my friend who is going through a rough patch. I know it made me feel better- LOL.

A Dozen Thoughts

So what do you think? Does it give you a little taste of spring and bring a smile to your face? I hope so.

This card is going to be part of a class that I’m working on so watch for more information coming soon about my Coffee and Cards Class.

After listening to my trim painting rant on Friday I thought you might like to see the finished project. LOL – Want to see how my new pantry looks? First here is a picture of my guys putting the shelf together.

And here is a picture of the finished panty with the shelf in it.

Larry just has to finish screwing the shelf to the wall and then I can start putting things on the shelf. Whoo hoo! Hmmm… he did mention it would be a great spot for my crafting supplies since it’s right off my classroom. He knows me sooo well – LOL!

Bright Blossoms

This morning first thing I went out and picked our 9 blueberry bushes which are now starting to coming in. It’s supposed to rain again today so I didn’t want to miss out on any due to the afternoon storms.

I love blueberry season and seeing the plump ripe berries on the bushes each year makes me happy – they’re so yummy and our bushes here are just starting to bear well now since they are about 4 years old. I’d gotten spoiled at our old house since the bushes were over 10 years old and we’d get gallons each summer. Here is a photo of the bowl I picked.


Why am I telling you about this? Well it inspired me to create a card for you today that has a blueberries theme.

Bright Blossoms Blueberries

So what do you think? Does it look like blueberries or a blueberry bush? I’ve used the Bright Blossoms stamp set (item 128424/125497) and stamped off in order to get the different shades of Midnight Muse and Gumball Green. I used my ½” Circle Punch to punch out the holes and wrapped my ribbon around the layer of Whisper White.

I love the sentiment that I used from the Really Good Greetings stamp set – it just seemed, well, perfect for this card. I think however, if I had to do it over again I would stamp the sentiment in Midnight Muse instead of the Gumball Green so that it popped!

Stop back tomorrow and I’ll share with you a favorite recipe for what I made with some of these yummy blueberries.


Stamp Set: Bright Blossoms stamp set (item 128424/125497) and Really Good Greetings (item 130330/130333)

Accessories: Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and ½” Circle Punch
