Easter brunch is at our house Sunday around noon.  The Burgin family always eats “dinner” early (a throwback to the days on the farm).  We celebrate Resurrection Day in worship in the morning, then rush home to get things in the … Continue reading

Just because it’s starting to look like spring

Well, it looks like spring today, anyway!  Tomorrow will be another story! Sometimes I see the perfect card and decide to use it without significant changes for stamp camp.  That’s what happened with this card, CASEd from Sharon Burkert: It doesn’t … Continue reading

A girl can dream, can’t she?

Heavy sigh.  Winter is still hanging on in north central Illinois.  We had a day of furious (but short-lived) snow early in the week, but it’s still so very cold.  However, that very morning I was surprised by a non-Stampin’ … Continue reading

A Sponge Brayer is a beautiful thing

We used Sponge Brayers on not one but two cards at Inkspiration Saturday last weekend.  This one was an adaptation of a card in the Occasions Catalog.  I didn’t want to make a square card, so I had the opportunity to … Continue reading
