Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

Dancing to a Happy Tune

I'm dancing right along with this ducky.
The days here are balmy and warm. Yesterday, I bought
a new pair of pruners and I'm going out today and do some more
clean up. I should have done most of this before winter set in.
I'm somewhat behind in my gardening. Next fall I want to
poke some Daffodil bulbs in the ground. They are everywhere here
and so pretty for the season.

Another bit of news for you. My daughter and husband leave
Tues night for an exciting trip to Thailand. I'm sure I'll have some
wonderful photos to share with you when she returns.

Sunday is new challenge day at
This week our challenge for you is

Here is my card using a Robyn's Fetish digi stamp.
Robyn's Fetish is also our sponsor for the IDIC masking challenge
this week. So pop on over and join in the challenge.

I used the fun Masking Technique to make this card. It really is simple to do
even with a digi. I just printed out my digi twice. Used one for the card and cut
one out to lay over the other. Then I chose a background stamps and stamped
over everything. Pulled off the mask and then colored my card.

You can be so creative with masking. Especially if you use rubber stamps.
It really is fun and easy to create a scene using this technique.
To see just how far you can go with masking visit

Just for Fun - New Technique

I love masksing but don't get results as good as you got. Great card and so sunny and bright. Can just imagine it making you feel like dancing.
I love daffodils, they have a special meaning for me and I am so glad you are going to plant some - love seeing clumps of them in gardens and in woodland.
Thanks for playing along with us at JFF.
