Does my Mother’s Day card look a little familiar? The original can be found HERE.

Hello-Spring-Card

I hate to have to admit this … but there are times when I stamp a card and for some reason or another, I don’t end up using it with the original stamped sentiment. Thank goodness for die cut shapes! It’s a great way to change a sentiment! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!

Please check out what the KS Crew has cooked up for you too!

Hello … hello … HELLO Spring!

No, this is not a belated April’s Fool joke …. YES, I am Back!

It is sooo good to be back and to say

… Happy Kitchen Sink Monday!

I sure have missed stamping with everyone & the KSS Crew over these past (too long to mention) months! I hope this post finds everyone well and looking forward to Spring… I know I am!

When I last posted … I’m not sure if I mentioned that my family & I had moved to a new home. Well, we did! It has taken much long than I ever had expected to deal with all the boxes [I am  STILL unpacking – URGH!], but we are loving our new home. So, I can’t help but have “clearing out things” on my mind….
