No, it is not an Italian Pastry as my dear friend, Loretta asked. It is Dutch String Art. To me, it looks like the spirograph toys we played with, as kids.
Here is a quick look at Spirelli String Art in card making!

I hope you will try it. Thanks for stopping by.

A DEAR, KIND, GENEROUS and LOVELY friend, Doris, taught me how to make this Tea Bag Fold Pattern for a Christmas Tree Card. I have made lots of them to send to family and friends and to donate.

Many folks have asked for the directions, so today I made a video and uploaded it to

Below the video, you will find a few photos of these charming Tea Bag Fold Christmas Tree Cards!

Here are some examples:

It is three dimensional, but folds flat for easy mailing!

Thank You so much Doris!!

Here is an authentic piece of sea glass from the Oregon coast. It was hand picked by my Fabulous Friend, Norma as she was strolling the beach with her husband. I thought this might make an interesting pendant. I wire wrapped it and added a few beads. Recycling a gift from Mother Nature is delightful. Thanks for stopping by!

This Get Well Card was created using Clear Dollar Stamps and a light blue CS base with yellow, brown and white layers of Nesties. I colored the horse with watercolor pencils and the leaves with metallic pastel watercolors. The background is an acorn stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps and I added a pale yellow bow. Simple and Sincere.... Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Birthday Card With Dog Theme!

Here is a cute Happy Birthday Card with a dog theme. The images are from and the embossing powder is from I used a gray CS for the card base and a second layer of blue CS with StampinUp's "Mover and Shaker" die to die cut the opening "window" for the dog. The "H" in Happy Birthday is made with paper punchouts of a dog bone, and the individual letters are punched out and adhered in a cheerful jumble fashion.

This is the first layer opened, to show the embossed dog, and his red bow tie made of crochet thread.

Here is the inside of the card.

Hope you like it. Simple and sweet! Thanks for stopping by!
