Happy Memories…

Is there anything better than HaPpY Memories?  Especially on our birthday and those of family and friends…creating happy memories is what it’s all about.

The sentiment on today’s post inspired the card that evolved in my mind…

Love that pop of Berry Burst!

  1. Hi Billie, I have been away on a camping trip and no wifi or cell service. UGH! Don’t get me wrong I love to go camping but do miss my wifi. We are at an RV park that has it and I am able to catch up on your emails and Facebook entries. Sure miss seeing your beautiful creations. You have a real flair for such awesome work. Thank you. Take care….hugs Sandy

    • How nice is that that I can be on your camping trip with you! Thanks for stopping by today and leaving a comment!…B!

  2. Hi Billie, I love this beautiful card with the perfect sentiment for lots of occasions. All the different elements you have put into it, just make it so special. We had lots of rain overnight and more this evening. It’s nice that it’s been at night to not spoil most people’s daytime activities. The “b-ism” today is very inspiring. Have a great week.

    • Thank you HJ! You need to send some of that rain our way…we are burning down here!…B!

  3. Great card Billie. I love the pop of color. Re your card using leaves, watercolor paper & the big shot…I tried it and can’t believe the results ! How did you ever think to try this? I am in the process of creating a Thanksgiving card using this technique.

    • I’m so glad you gave it a try. You are only limited by nature! We will be trying this technique in class next month….B!

    • Thanks Laura. Me too, I especially love color combinations with Lemon Lime Twist!…B!
