Another Rainy Day…

              cards 001 (640x480)

I belong to a monthly card swap over at MaryJane’s Farm Connection and my dear friend, Sharon and I were planning to meet on Monday but unfortunately, she was sick.  So I was on my own….I even got to recycle some garbage….lol…yep, that corn stalk on the right….the husk is from an ear of corn! 

                        cards 003 


              cards 005 

Since I was on a roll, I made a few other cards and tags.  I love having them on hand when I need them….and there is nothing better than a handmade gift/card.

                               cards 004 (640x480) 


         cards 003 (480x640) 


                                       cards 002 

And I loved using my new vintage paper cutter!  A bargain I found this summer, while on a glampin’ trip in Idaho, with my vintage (1969) Shasta 1400.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit…I just want to tell you all how much it means to me, to have such wonderful blogging friends!!!  ;)



  1. You have been so busy. You put me to shame. I'm lovin' that purple magical number! Mmmm Mmmm

  2. Finding that cutter would have made my year, what a super find!

    LOVE homemade cards and I keep all of them in a special box. It takes a special skill to be creative and you have the talent. What a perfect way to accent a gift than with a handmade card as well.

    Send some rain our way, we could use more than the 2 days we had.

    GOD bless and keep you all safe.

  3. Those are so beautiful. So charming. I, too make my own cards and of course there is a cat on everyone. Love your blog. Hugs, Deb=^..^=z4

  4. First of all, love the cards! Now I must tell you that I followed your tute to clean the dishwasher and am so happy to report that I just ran my first load without a single leak!! I still need to buy some CLR and run that through though. Thank you so much for the informative info. We have very hard water and it can wreak havoc!!

  5. They are all such beautiful works of art..very, very creative. I noticed your vintage paper cutter right away, what a useful find!

  6. Handmade cards are such a lovely gift! I love making them and giving them.
    Your chicks look so sweet.

  7. Great cards as usual!! It's raining here also...yuck!

  8. Love your cards! I would like to make cards—just never seem to have the time.

    I’m a follower.

  9. Rainy days??????? Send them our way!!!

    I love your pretty cards..... you're creative in so many ways!!!

  10. I remember that old cutter from art class. It's so much classier looking than the new plastics!
