Blowing in the Wind

That is what I was thinking of when I created this card! The "flower" is one my best buddy has the die for so she cut me a bunch out of different color papers. I used a pre-made card base and just cut out a piece of paper to go on the front, cut my "grass" with my grass making scissors (can't for the life of me recall what they are actually called, LOL), ran my ribbon through my Xyron to make it sticky and just stuck it all together. I stamped the "with love" and used a nestie to cut it out with. My inspiration came from a card I found on Google while searching for "Handmade" or "Homemade Cards". I enjoy looking at other's cards while I sit and watch tv at night so I am either on Pinterest or Google, LOL *Hugs*

Wedding Card 3

My great nephew finally came home from the hospital today :) I haven't seen him yet but hope to later! This is the final wedding card I needed to make for my niece- it took me two days to complete due to sinus issues kicking me down! I cut the main base at 12X6 as some tuts called for 12X5 and others 12X7 so I took the middle road, LOL I scored it at 3" and 9". I found the image of the butterfly bride online and it is perfect as her theme is butterflies and rainbows! I just printed it off SCAL (only reason is I can get the exact size I want easier there) and then fussy cut around the edges of both the bride and groom. I used my nesties to cut the outside stamped image and printed the inside saying and used a nestie to cut it out as well. I forgot to ink the edges of the outside stamped image but she will never know, LOL I am happy to have all three done and no major mishaps along the way! *Hugs*

May They Live Happily Ever After!

I hope and pray they do! This is for my niece and her fiance who are getting married next month. I already made my card for her but this is for my mom to give them! I will still have to create one from my grandmother as well, LOL I totally scraplifted the idea for this one as well while on a blog hopping expedition. *Hugs*

Mishaps Happen

And sometimes they are a good thing! I pulled out this impressabilities from Spellbinders the other day and tried using my brayer to apply ink to the card. It left a decent impression but I wasn't overjoyed with it so I tried it with the Cuttlebug! I forgot to wipe the ink off and this is what came out- how beautiful is this?! I just love it! I will stamp a sentiment on it when I need it for whatever purpose later on. *Hugs*

Pinterest Again

I have got to stay away from this place, LOL Here are two more cards I saw there tonight that I had to lift and make myself. *Hugs*

Pinterest- enough said!

I went in search of some inspiration today in Pinterest and haven't gotten a single thing done in the house now, but I am sure some of you can relate, LOL I saw this simple card and had to recreate it in my own way and loved it when completed- until I took the picture! THEN I realized I had not pulled out my dots folder but the tiny hearts, LOL Oh well the thought was in tiny dots, LOL *Hugs*

Photo is a mishap this time!

Ok, I have tried three times to take a picture of this card and each time I have either cut something off or made it so blurry it looked like hurricane season! I got the tutorial for this shadowbox card off The Frugal Crafter's site and it was so simple to put together and I love the outcome! It was supposed to have a pine cone, pine needles and a small branch on it but I guess my pine tree burned down as it did not happen, LOL *Hugs*

Monkees and Butterflies

No, I didn't misspell that, I am sitting here listening to The Monkees on Youtube while crafting! It can surely get your blood pumping but it takes me twice as long to get anything done for dancing, LOL I saw this card on Shirley's Blog ( ) and had to try it out! It cut beautifully, even the tiny flowers! "Cheer up Sleepy Jean" Oh, got side tracked again, LOL I am off to do some house work while I am pumped with energy! *Hugs*


I have seen so many cards that use buttons so neatly but I have never used any on mine. Tonight I decided I was going to use some and I am quite tickled with the results. The card is very similar to the one I made earlier in the week but I changed the colors a bit! I may just make a set and give them to my niece when she gets married next month. *Hugs*

It's a Boy!!!!

My great nephew was born last week 6 weeks early weighing in at 4.9 lbs. He has since lost a full pound plus so he is presently residing in the NICU. I made this card for the mama when she has her baby shower (it was supposed to be this weekend but it was held off until the baby is home and safe). I am loving how this came together and I used a wobbly on it so the giraffe wiggles on the card! He isn't as low down on the oval as it looks so I am thinking by taking it looking down at the card created that effect. *Hugs*

And the Fun Continues...

I made another "Just incase" card today. I am working on getting quite a stash going so if I come across the need for one, I have it ready just need to stamp a sentiment. I don't ever use flowers on my cards, but today I felt like adding a couple just to be different. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day and your weekend was just splendid! *Hugs*

Just for Fun!

I was a bit bored tonight, in between cooking and cleaning, so I created a few more cards to have in my stash should I need one! The purple one was made with a dryer sheet on top of the paper and a Stampin Up Stamp. I wish you could see the real sparkle on this one! The pink one was made with Stampin Up Stamps as well. I am having so much fun creating just to create! I did redo the ribbon on the purple one so it looks more like the one on the pink card, LOL *Hugs*
