Happy Father's Day

Let us not forget the retired stamp sets.  You will be missed, but not forgotten.

Secret Garden stamp set

I'm sorry to see the Secret Garden stamp set go away! 

But we must move on!  I now have my eye on the Flower Patch stamp set (19 stamps in this set) and the coordinating Flower Fair framelits dies. 

Owl Punch

Stampin' Up's Owl Builder punch and the branches are from the Bird Builder punch.


I played with color here, using Calypso Coral stamp pad and card stock.  The Designer paper is Etcetera from the retired list!


Happy Hour stamp set.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday card.

My daughter challenged me to create a TMNT birthday card.  I use the Stampin' up 1-3/8" circle punch, large oval punch and Honeycomb embossing folder.

The type is from my computer and the bubble is from the SU Word Bubble framelits.

And you cannot forget the googly eyes.

What makes you happy?

Hello and welcome to Happy Hour,

There are several reasons I call my crafting time Happy Hour.

1.   I enjoy crafting, card making, and scrapbooking.  Every time I finish a project I get a big smile and can't wait to share with family and friends.

2.   I have a full time job and when I return home from a long commute, the first thing I do is pour myself a glass of wine and sit down to my crafting table.  This makes me happy!

3.   My "craft room" is in our small dining room that has been turned into a pub!  So while crafting I can enjoy the music, neon lights and the thought of many drinks!  This too makes me happy!

I would like to hear from you and what makes you happy!
