I Love my Shetland Sheepdog


Oh my goodness... have you seen the dog images at JessicaLynnOriginal? If you are a dog lover, you really should check them out. They are so realistic looking. And there are several breeds to choose from.

This weekend - yes, both today and tomorrow - I'm going to feature the JessicaLynnOriginal Shetland Sheepdog Sheltie stamp set. It has so many images in it that I couldn't choose just one to use.

Here is today's card:






Oh how I wish my coloring skills could do this stamp justice.

Happiness Blooms in Spring


It's wintertime and here in central Illinois, where I live, we're dealing with snow, ice, and freezing rain. Roads are a bit treacherous. Meetings have been canceled and/or postponed. We're staying inside as much as possible.

Soooooooo... I'm REALLY liking the new challenge at Sweet Stampin'!
