One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #90: Creating Focal Point Sentiments with Stamps & Dies

I made a trip to Seattle for my BFF's retirement party...she was OVER THE MOON excited about retiring...she thought she would need to work until age 65, but a retirement planner worked the numbers and gave her the green light two years ahead of schedule.  After not making many cards for the last couple of months it felt good to create.  I really liked this MIM and away I went with making cards.  I made four of these so I would have them to send to my elderly aunts:

I used my Simple Sunflowers and the stamps and dies from Count My Blessings.


  1. I love all of your blessed cards. Your auuts will love them. Thanks for coming to my retirement party. It would not have been the same without you.

  2. Great work Colleen I'm sure your aunts will love them and it's so good to see you are crafting again.Keeps you busy.

  3. Wonderful colors. They bring such joy to the message.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
