Hello, everyone!  I am back from vacation…a perfect beach week, very relaxing!  Here’s a view of the Lewes, Delaware, beach on a quiet Tuesday morning:


Nothing better than a deserted beach!  So now I am trying to get back into the stamping groove…I have lots of goodies to play with but I am struggling with getting all my thoughts and ideas  together!  I went to the Match the Sketch challenge for my sketch, turning it on its side:

I love the new Woodland Textured embossing I used it on an Old Olive card base, adding three feathers from the Cheer All Year set in Tip Top Taupe, Early Espresso and Soft Suede.  I also stamped a sentiment  from the same set and added a touch of Tangelo Twist for a little brightness!

And for ease, I simply glue-dotted on my little baker’s twine knots…no tying!

Today is the first day of school….I’ll have pictures tomorrow.  Meanwhile, here is a little montage of Cassidy and her friend Dominic, whose mom is a friend of my daughter’s:


There is always lots of action and excitement when these two are together!  And in true Cassidy fashion, if something doesn’t work right, she is right at the ready to get it fixed!!!  However, I think there’s something wrong with this picture!


Enjoy your day!


  1. So great having you back. Happy you had a good vacation.
    Great card.

  2. How lucky to be at the beach without the crowds. It looks beautiful. I might have to take ride down!

  3. LOL!! LeAnne, that is a fabulous picture of your sweetie Cassidy giving her friend a push!!! Strong girl, that is for sure, she took matters into her own two little hands and feet.
    Now, your card is lovely, that embossing folder is on my list to get it as soon as tomorrow morning!!! I think it's a fabulous EF, perfect background for your beautiful feathers, great tip on how to "tie" your teeny, tiny knots, at first glance, I was wondering how in the world did you managed to tie them.

    1. Thanks so much, Maria!!! I am sure you'll go crazy for all the goodies in the new catalog...I know I did!

  4. Looks like a fabulous time at the beach!! Glad you got to relax!! :) Stunning creation!! I'm loving the colors!!

  5. Great scenery, Cassidy, real woman don't push cars when a man is sitting in the drivers seat,
    I know it is nice to be independent buuuut.
    Best wishes from OZ x

  6. Welcome back!! Love your card today, those feathers are fun. But I have to say that last photo of the kids steals the spotlight!!!

  7. Hey… Schön sieht deine Karte aus, hast dir richtig Mühe gegeben, gefällt mir! Vielen Dank für deine Teilnahme bei Match the Sketch und viel Glück bei der Challenge! Liebe Grüße, Fanny
