Another Card for the Men You Know

This card is made out of the same paper as the previous card but a different look. Of course from graphic 45. A word of encouragement for one of our worship leaders in our church. Simple and fast to make. I love those square cards. Don't forget they take extra postage to mail.

Starting on designing my Valentines. It comes up quick. Don't forget the people your around everyday. Surprise someone with a valentine. It isn't always about romance but showing you care and are thinking of them.

Cards for Men

Well hello everyone. I am back to making cards after all the remodeling and storm damage repair to our new old farmhouse. We love it here and I will be uploading some pics of our adventure and my wonderful husbands construction talents.

  The card above was constructed with Graphic 45's Good Ol' Sport Collection and the stamp used from Stampabilities. Die cut used from Spellbinders.

  Good to be back and I promise by photography will get better.:)

Nap Time

  Guess what? We have kittens. Smile....we have three kittens
and another mommy cat pregnant. So if anyone is interested in kittens they will be available soon to a good home. So fun to watch and see the different stages of growth. Make a comment if you can't resist these sweet kittens.

Now on to the most recent card I worked on Friday night. I was focusing on Birthday Cards. Below was the last one I created. I actually got five cards done! This one is for anyone, but I did several cards that had a western theme. I will post one of those also today.

I like the black and white theme. You may not be able to see it but I have some glitter on the bird nest and the leaves in the branches. Black is just so timeless and elegant. The stamp is Impression Obsession and the paper Lost and Found Pad.  Next is the western theme and I will be posting several  in the days to come alone with new kitten updates.

Another birthday card and this one is more male oriented. The paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Wanted 6x6 pad. The chipboard stickers also Cosmo Cricket. There is just something about cowboys and the western theme. A reminder of the past and the hard work and hard play time back then.

  Well off to work on my Place in Time Calendar. I am on June, almost halfway done. Come back and visit with me.

Lucy Cromwell


  Papermania's Lucy Cromwell Die-Cut Glitter Toppers are so lovely and effortless in making cards. Just punch them out and put pop dots on the back and apply them to anything. They already have the glitter on them These two cards above were super easy. I picked the square cards up at Michaels for a dollar a pack and they already had the embossing around the edges. I sponged them with ink, stamped my sentiment and added a bow. Below is a close up of the back card so you can see the glitter and the graphic better.

I bought these from Creative Dreams while they were at the Autism Crop. They were really fun to use and the crop was awesome as usual. Lots of talking, shopping and creating. Thank You Dolly for getting it all together.
  Creative Dreams has lots of beautiful paper and accessories. Drop by and check them out on Morgan Avenue. More to come, so come back and visit.

Spring is Here!

  Hey long time no see. Wow I have really been side tracked lately with moving and having people over and unpacking. Dolly dropped me a little line after seeing my last card on the blog and sparked that creative desire to make and create and then blog about it. I hope you enjoy this card.
  I used Lost & Found  - Rosy 6x6 pad. I didn't even need to stamp with this paper. I used an EKSuccess  Border punch on the top of the striped paper and lace on the bottom to pretty it up. If you have a bird, you have to have flowers so I combined the fabric flower with the crocheted flower, both with brads to add a little bling. I also used some of the black and white polka dot paper for my envelope flap to hint of the contents of the letter. Creators this was fast, easy and to me so prettyyy.

  Life is about having a dream, daydreaming and or changing your dreams. But don't stop dreaming. We are created in His image and He gave us all gifts and talents. So get up and try something new or get back to making your dream come true. Enjoy these beautiful warm days. Be back soon.

Thinking of You

My friend Kelly had been inviting me to stamp at her home throughout the months we were remodeling our house. And I had to keep telling her no. So I finally got to go stamping and she had the paper and some goodies set out at my station to welcome me in her home. It is such a bright and pretty paper it wasn't hard to make a card with it.
  Butterflys just say it all. They give us hope that spring is coming along with warmer weather. I love the soft colors along with a pop of bright colors. Of course I had to add some bling. The label was made with a stamp set from My Minds Eye I purchased at Make Time To Create {sniff, sniff.} We miss you Dolly and Mary. I also used a EK Success Punch along the bottom of the butterfly paper. I love the border punches. They are so easy to use and add so much to your card or project. Well hope to see you all soon. Let's get stamping.

Just Be You

   Hello fellow crafters. Longtime, no time.  We finally got moved in News Years Eve. Thank You to everyone who helped. Two months living with some special friends from church. Working every weekend and Greg working when he had the time or energy after work remodeling the house I grew up in Boonville.  It turned out awesome. We gutted it and put our personality on an old farmhouse. Hmmm, so nice to be home. My mom and dad live just up the road from us and my brother, sister, and two nieces live within a couple of miles. We had Christmas at our home last Saturday. What a blessing. Pictures of before and after are coming.
  Now to get on with the card. I made this card at my friend Kelly's home. She has really got her stamp room all together. Wow. It was awesome. This card has Lost and Found paper from the Sunshine 6 x 6 pad. Lots of pretty paper. I am getting hooked on the pads. All the paper coordinates and as I told Kelly you can just bust the cards out. Hee, Hee. I used a die (the pendants)  I purchased at Make to Time to Create. So cute. I put rhinestones on the pendants also to bling it up. I used a spellbinder die for the bird piece and use the stickles fine glitter I got from MTTC. I love that glitter.
It really makes the pictures pretty as you can see below. I got the little flower from my friend Melody and dolled it up with a rhinestone. Ahhh, so good to get back to creating.
