Cards for a Dear Friend!

I have a dear friend that has been struggling with her health for a while now and she hired me to do card classes for a bit at her stamp shop a few years ago before closing up the doors now. She was real good to me as far as some nice deals on some of her inventory she had remaining and always lends me supplies/stamps when I ask. In return for using some of her stamps this past week-- she mentioned not having time to make any Christmas cards and I knew it wasn't just all about the time either --since her memory is leaving her and she is discombobulated most times now! I offered to make her however many cards she needed to send out to her family and friends this year! Here are the three that I repeated and created a gift package for her to send out:

These ornaments were inspired by an almost identical card created by someone on StampTV! It was a simple idea and I appreciated it so much I scraplifted it to mass produce! Thanks for the inspiration (Im sorry I cant remember the name).


This was another simple and easy card to mass produce with the cuttlebug and cricut to thank!


I used this real nice shiny blue paper for the snowflake too--I really love that paper!!!


I stamped this candle and colored with the magic colored pencil technique! It also was an easy one to mass produce with elegant results!!

Wow --share the new news!!

Well, I can see now exactly how long it's been since I last posted... shame on me!! I was sitting here this morning thinking it had been a little while--it sure has!
I have been very busy with the new school year starting and all. Some of you know, but for those who don't, I homeschool my girls and they keep me very busy! We have just finished volunteering at the State Fair for the week! That was soo fun--yet tiring! I managed to sell a few cards there in between the sour weather--yayyy!! That was uplifting!!
I also am honored to be spotlighted for the month of October as guest designer along side Jeannie Phillips, who is amazing at making the most beautiful cards!! She is one talented woman for sure! You can see more of her beauty HERE! I almost shriveled when she asked me to be her guest for the month of October! I have been out of commission on the card front for a short length of time (6 months or so) and I started getting in the groove of things again when my friend, Sandra Flake, bought a Cricut!! She called to share the news of hers and tell me all about the machine, when I surprised her by telling her that I already owned one and had had it for a year...lol!! I was inspired to get it chirping like crazy..and have been chirping regularly since! I love the support found at the MB on the Cricut website--this is how Jeannie found me! I am truly honored! Thanks for sharing a part of ME Jeannie, for the month of October!

Cupcake challenge--1st challenge!




My friend, Sandra, has began making cards again and I am glad she has hollered at me to get myself going on making them again too! She and I have just decided to try doing a weekly challenge, taking turns determining what the idea will be. She chose this one with an adorable cupcake freebie from StampTv with Gina K. I had a great time with this one too and my daughter jumped in on the challenge too with an adorable chocolate cupcake card!

Labels, labels, labels and more labels!


I found this technique at the Hero Arts website and thought I would give it a try! How fun it was and I loved the labels for sure! It was a simple card to make too!

Sorry about the blurriness in the corner with the gems.. the bow and flowers in 3D lifted it from my scanner a bit! Didn't have my camera at the time of the finish!

New Blog Things

I have decided to start putting my crafty things up on a blog site now too! I surf and see that most people have already got their creations up. Of course, I am always a wee bit of a late bloomer and much slower at catching up or keeping up with everyone else!


But anywho, let's get started! I will start with these that I have already made last week and will work from here!
