PDE Welcome, Cardinals!

Hello, Friends.  It's time for a PDE Linky Challenge.  We have an inspiration photo this week.  It's time to turn our focus from Christmas to winter.  We don't have a winter in Florida so I love to make winter cards to send to my friends and family up north.  Join us at the Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Challenge this week, won't you?

Here's the inspiration photo:

There is a saying that a cardinal is a spirit that has come to visit earth so I always think of loved ones that are gone when I see cardinals in our yard.  Here's my card inspired by the photo and that saying.

Whale of a Cupcake

Hello, Friends.  It's time for another "anything goes" at PIP Challenges #1802.  We're using Limited Run images today and I chose Whale of a Cupcake  as mine.  

We like water images here in Florida because we are surrounded on three sides with it.  A dolphin may have been more appropriate but the smile on this whale captured my attention.

And here's my card:

New Years Means Birthdays

Hello, Friends.  Die Cuts is the theme for the Pause Dream Enjoy Linky Challenge this week.  Hope you will join us this week at    As we begin the new year, I see that I need to make more birthday cards.  Today's card doesn't have a speck of stamping;  it's all die cuts to match the theme.  I chose my favorite color so it was fun to work on.  Now I am wondering why I didn't make several of these.  My habit of making one-of-a-kind cards is fun but means my stash is always small.  Let me know what color I should make next!  And don't forget to join us at the PDE Linky Challenge!
