Manic Monday!

I had one day free of appts this week.. I can't believe it! That has not happened to me in a long time--usually I am free most days!! Soo I filled Monday to make it all filled this week.. lol!! I made cards to put in the guild for next weekend!

Here is a doggie bathtime card!! I had sooo much fun designing this one!! I am SOOOO loving my DS!!! I am seeing myself with a Gypsy very very soon!! I will need for days like tomorrow sitting at the guild all day!! Hmmmmmm



This one is done using the design of the fancy fold pop up card found by searching that on Youtube! I had to get a wedding card done for my daughters friend at work who is getting married next month!! Wow-- I am for once ahead of the game!!

Cards made that never got posted...

Here are some cards that I created using inspiration from blogs that I visit from time to time!

Here I welded bits and pieces together using my new DS! How fun to experiment!


Here I used the heart corner punch as a circle border punch--love that technique and fun too!


Here is my first shaped card...it turnedo ut upside down and backwards from what I had intended--practice makes better!! Still very fun!





Here are a few more cards that I made while "away" from blogging! I hope you enjoy!








Returning from a Hiatus

Hi all ~ I have been MIA for a bit now.. ohh my almost 6 months it seems! WOW I wish I could say it was soo much fun that time flew that fast! I have had some medical issues and have been down here and there! I have also had PC issues in between those which has added to the "fun"!!
I have made a few "needed" cards in that time and will attempt to try to share those if my camera will cooperate!

Here are a couple that I made for my husbands doctors that he has had to see lately.





Oh oh oh--for Mother's Day I received Design Studio and had to play--Here is the second card that I did for the doc--I used my george cart and created a guitar since my husbands request was for a rocking guitar card for his male doc who is in a band. This is what i came up with following a card from Jeannie's blog using IA cart, which I don't have--YET! Sorry about the quality of the photo... my camera is being nasty!

A quick valentine...


..I say quick because I used items I had made previously that I have been holding on too for some time now and figured it was about time to clean house on the hoarded items! I used up my quilled flowers, some assembled punched flowers and a precuttlebugged greeting and prepunched MS border thanks to my friend, Sandy!! Thanks again Sandy!!

Vintage Valentines!

Well I thought I should try putting together some Valentine cards while dabbling with the Easter too! Here is an Adrienne/Mommy make and take...lol!

This is Adrienne's version of the vintage look! She wanted so to sit and create a card like mine to she followed a step behind and interpreted my doings in her own way! She did a wonderful job on her creation!


This last one is my take on the card! I have some serious competition, eh!

Hippity Hoppity...

Easter is on its way! I love love LOVE Easter! Like it's my next favorite holiday to Christmas! I love what it stands for and I loved celebrating it with my kids when they were little!! Playing the Easter bunny and all--leaving bunny tracks, hiding the eggs and filling baskets with yummy and fun things! I loved seeing their smiling and surprised faces as they lifted their lil heads and opened their eyes wide!
I was so excited about getting the new Easter cart that I got started right in:
Here are two to get me AND you all started. I hope you feel inspired!!








New Year, New Projects!

I am going to try to make a point of posting at least one ormore times a month on here... I am soo undisciplined and I am working on it!! Really I am!
Here are some neat "Treat Boxes" that I saw over at splitcoaststampers!
I made one in a theme to suit each of my girls!! They are soo fun to make I can see myself making many more of these for all occasions!!
