“There Really Is No Place Like Home” Card

Begin with a pretty envelope from a past greeting card, scrap paper, an old road map, and…

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane.  I’d like to share my latest decorated card.  I began with some scraps, and ended with:

this fun and cheery card.

I, also, had an extra envelope which matches and gives plenty of room for a little bubble wrap in front of the card for protection, if I decide to mail it to someone.

I wrote the verse on paper, which I added to the inside of the card.  The stamp added a nice touch.  I have a few really nice ideas for this verse, vintage pictures of cottages and such, but the printer is out of colored ink, so, I’ll just have to be patient.  In the meantime, it’s nice to know butterflies, the free-spirits they are, roaming here and there, call each flower their home.

Have a wonderful weekend, and…Until next time, may happy days abound!



Welcome Autumn Tag

Bro. Robert's Autumn Tag 2

Hello Friends,

Keeping the creative juices flowing with this 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″,  “Welcome Autumn” tag, which I’ll be sending to my brother.  Nothing went to waste, and after pulling out some of the burlap threads I wrapped them with a fall colored, checked fabric remnant.

Now, with Autumn on my mind, I’d like to wish all of you a beautiful beginning of fall.

Until next time, may happy days abound!


P.S.   Oh, and just a reminder that we’re headed into the holiday season.  For those of you who are new to Leisure Lane, don’t forget to pop over to Amazon Kindle and check out my book, “The Christmas Pin Society”.  If you like Christmas holiday movies, you’ll love this story.  If you don’t have a kindle, you can download a free app to read it on your computer.

Kindness is Love Tag


Hello and welcome to all who stroll by Leisure Lane today.  It’s always a pleasure to see you.

Today we’re featuring a new tag – “Kindness is Love”.  I hope to create a matching booklet.

Until next time, may happy days abound!
