Lawn Fawn - Happy Summer
Stampendous - Happy Face
Stampendous - Brushed Wishes sentimnet
Stampendous- Red Vinyl Round Stickers
Copics - R14 27, G03, 100

My House Mouse team mate, Sue Drees, inspired me to try the Drapery or Curtain Fold. You can see her card here. Thanks for doing all the research, Sue. The fold came out perfect the first time I tried it. I altered mine slightly by cutting a little off the edge and the top. The part that I cut from the top I flipped it over and glued it underneath the green paper strip. That green paper strip is where I added the old 2011 round red vinyl stickers. 

For my Twofer card, I made the 2nd card a flower by using the watermelon to place around a hexagon. The Stampendous Smiley Face I got at a garage sale for .25. It's dated 1998. I didn't even know card making was around back then.

HMFMC #309 Mid Way Reminder


House Mouse Valentine Kiss
Rubbernecker Free Hand Frame small

Yes, I used the same stamp last week because there's more love to spread around. There's no rule that says you can't use the same stamp twice. 


Happy Valentine's Day and/or Happy Anniversary if you're celebrating it this week. I hope there's someone special in your life. Just remember, it's not about the flowers, cards, jewelry, chocolates or gifts. Those are nice but having that someone special is the best. 

This Valentine was mailed at the beginning of the month to the United States oldest retired Marine, Major Bill White who is 104 years old. He asked for Valentine's cards and has literally received 50 thousand thus far from all over the world.

Penny Black - Caroling Trio 
Small musical note stamp
Kuretake Zig Clean Colors - 22 30 32 50 51 65 81 80 90 91
I need more practice with the Zigs. Especially for the background.


Recently I met a new friend, Mary, who I met her through Di at Pixie's Snippets Playground. You can read about Mary by clicking on Pixie's above. For Mary it was one of those bad situations where the Fire Marshall tells you that you have 20 minutes to get out of the house. Those California winds gobbled up Mary's house and many others. 

It moved me and I got in touch with Mary, a few e-mails, phone calls and I sent her a few things. It always makes you feel good to give to others. I've noticed the crafters I've met are genuine and good hearted people. 

Well, a little time passed and I was checking on my House Mouse team mate Sue Kment who is soon to retire and I wanted to know how she was doing. I also mentioned to her that I was really just now starting to collect some of the Penny Black stamps and had purchased one of the stamps that she had made a card out of.  I called her my enabler for that stamp. One older stamp (the stamp above) I mentioned I really wanted it to be my next Penny Black stamp.  I pace myself on purchases since I don't work for money. Lo and behold, Sue sent me an e-mail back and said she had purchased an extra Penny Black Caroling Trio and wanted to send it to me as a gift. Just like that. In the mail I received it and a couple of other stamp sets by different companies. I told Sue it felt like I was being paid a kindness in return for sending Mary a few things. As I said before it feels good to give to others and you never expect anything to be paid forward to you but then when  it happens, what a blessing. Sue said it was a blessing for her as well and I truly believe that. Thank you, Sue.

This sticky note holder went from the east coast to the west coast. I'm not sure who the recipient was but I hope they are enjoying it. I wished I had pink sticky notes for the inside but maybe they can replace them with pink when it runs out.
