Thanks for visiting and check back tomorrow for a GIRL SCOUT themed card.

Welcome to my first day as a PKSGD.
What an HONOR for me!!


First, I have to tell ya’ll how much I LOVE PEACHY KEEN STAMPS. My projects wouldn’t be nearly as cute without their wonderful products…and the quality is out of this world!!


Time being what it is (or I should say lack of time) I tend to keep my posts short and sweet. Just like Joe Friday (from Dragnet) said “Just the facts, Ma'am.”

For my first project, I made this card for my dear daddy who will be turning 87 soon. He served in the Marine Corps during WWII and is still involved in the Marine Corps League. Most of the things I make for him have a patriotic theme.

Using my Gypsy, I cut the dress shirt from SIMPLY CHARMED and on the knot of the tie, a cute little PK face from BOY MATES FACE ASSORTMENT (PK-642).

To give the effect of a tie clip, I cut off a paper clip and put a chipboard star on the top.

Baking twine is wrapped around the mat several times and when I don’t have to mail something, I go all out with foam tape.
