Card of the Week: Let It Snow

The Crafter’s Companion stamp set from Creative Stamping 100 really did make it easy for this year’s Christmas cards. And, with talk of a 67% chance of a white Christmas (I think that’s what I read somewhere), I thought I’d share a snowy sort of card.

House Mouse stamps are very good for cute,… Continue reading Card of the Week: Mice Making Popcorn

The cherry tree is turning all sorts of shades of orange and red. And the hares, when they can be seen, are in the fields. Probably. Actually, I think… Continue reading Card of the Week: A Hare-Raising Day
