Hummingbird Hugs with Papertrey Ink | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

I don’t know about you, but 68 or so with some sun and a slight breeze is about perfect outdoor weather. Unless of course I’m just sitting still outdoors; then 76 will do. 🙂

Today was neither. As I sit here, at 7:40 pm at night, it is still 93.

Yes. You read that right.

Not exactly outdoor weather, which is why I spent much of my afternoon indoors, working on this pair of cards!

CC876 It’s Snow Time Trio | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Happy New Year!

I’m popping in today with a quick feature of a trio of cards I finished Friday for friends and family thank-yous. I asked to borrow this old favorite from my mom’s collection when we joined them for Christmas, and she ended up sending it home with me to keep! YAY! I adored this set back in the day, and truthfully, I still do!

This week’s color challenge (CC876: Pool Party/Very Vanilla/Pretty Peacock) at Splitcoast Stampers was the perfect combination for the canvas I imagined when I dreamed about using this set for these cards, though I cheated a little by incorporating additional colors when I colored these adorable images.

Mother’s Day | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

Hopping in today with a quick post to share the card I made my mom this year for Mother’s Day – and photographed literally 45 minutes before she walked in the door. (Yes, it was a close cut deadline with this one! hehe)

He is Risen! | DancesWithHooves Paper Design

The pandemic has changed so many aspects of our lives, hasn’t it? Including my sudden desire… no, make that need, to make and send Easter cards.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16 (NIV)

Though I am a longtime follower of Christ and believe with every cell in my body that He died for us – for each and every one of us! – I have never before made nor sent Easter cards. Believe me, I’ve wanted to a time or two (or ten). I just always ran out of time! And to be honest, it’s not that I’ve got a ton of extra time on my hands right now (I still have to travel to and from the barn, and am spending just as much time with my horse as ever), but since I’m pretty well caught up with birthday cards and the like for the near future, I turned my crafty attention to one of the most beautiful holidays of all – Easter!
