Laugh Often-YoYo pin

I fabic pin for some YoYo's I made and stamped with Mona.
Created by Lynn Stevens
Here's a wonderful image from fairies and. I love this image of the fairy child and the little frog. I added the saying "I will write peace on your wings and you will fly all over the world."

The background uses a beautiful shell stamp in a light green stamp ink that is very subtle in the scanned image but more viewable in the daylight. I embellished the cards using various Prima flowers and Basic Grey brads.

Have a wonderful Memorial day!!

Celebration Dress

Along with the shoes I stamped up a few weeks ago, I have also been seeing beautiful dresses. That inspired me to pull out this stamp for a card. I assume some many of the dresses I saw were for proms, but now people are going to be celebrating graduations and attending weddings for their families. The stamp shown here comes on a wonderful sheet of stamps (click to see).
Have a wonderful day!

Springtime Greetings

A sure sign that Spring has FINALLY arrived is the beautiful daffodils.  I thought this image would make a perfect Springtime card.

Happy Owlie Friday!!

This owl stamp is a real cutie, you can find him on the website, here. I love this owl and used some great Nestabilities to cut out the shapes used to make the background. I used beautiful specialty papers used for this card and topped the card off with flowers across the center. Super sweet! I love adding my own fun sayings to the inside of great owl cards. I hope everyone has a wonderful friday!!

Cheers, Holley

Happy Mother's Day to my Daughters!

I thought this stamp would be perfect for a MD card for my daughters, who are both mothers themselves!

Thanks for looking!    Mary B. Giemza ~


I can deal with anything if I have the right shoes! Isn't that the truth!! Sometimes they are so cute I just NEED them. Kind of like stamps right, even when I don't have an "outfit" for them, I just want them at times. But, I guess truthfully between shoes and stamps, I am much more likely to go with STAMPS myself!

Hope you have a wonderful May!

Cheers, Holley
