Just a quick computer died so it might be a little bit before I can get back online.I think I lost everything due to the hard drive failure. Bummer! Have a great holiday weekend. Hopefully I will be back soon!

Good Morning!
Today's card was made with a Penny Black stamp. I think these kitties are adorable! I am working on some thank you cards and this is one of them. I used my favorite colors...aqua & pink. The background paper has some glitter in it and so does the center of the flower. The "thank you" is a rub on. I colored it with my Copic markers and cut the layers & flowers with Nestibilities. Thanks for stopping.
Happy Stamping!

Isn't this recipe book the coolest?! My friends and I took a class Monday night to make this. I just love the "old,vintage look". And it was sooo fun to make! I have decided that this is one project I am going to keep for myself. The cover was made with a clipboard. The inside pages are all pocket pages to slip your recipe cards in to. We added lots of "doodads" to complete the look. I have since added several pages that I made at home. We used the Graphics 45 "Domestic Goddess" line. Fun, fun fun! Afterwards we went out for dinner at a BBQ place. The weather was really bad and one of the ladies had to leave because she got word that 2 big trees were down in her yard. She couldn't enjoy her dinner not knowing what damage they caused. Thankfully it wasn't too bad. Her neighborhood suffered a lot of damage & trees down. Such crazy weather all around the nation! Hope your neck of the woods has been safe.

Hello! 2 quick cards today..
These were made with my Imagine & Lori's Garden cartridge. The orange one has some flower ribbon behind it and I cut some flowers out of paint chips with my nestibilities. Added a few rhinestones and flat brads to finish it off.
I added some rhinestones to the aqua & orange one as well. Used an embossing folder to add some texture...easy peasy! I also added teeny brads for the eyes.
Thanks for checking in today. Have a good one!

Hello! It's a great day...for a duck! Still raining here with more in the forecast. They say April showers bring May flowers...well we better get a boatload (even though they are May showers!)The only thing growing great right now is the dandelions!
Happy Birthday to my baby brother! This is the card I made for him. He is a drummer & also works in a drum shop. You can't tell from the picture but I cut out parts of the drum set and popped them up to make the drums look 3D. The inside sentiment is a $1.oo stamp from JoAnns. I used an embossing folder that was a musical theme. Hope he likes it.
Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are staying dry!

Hello! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday! It was raining here this morning but the sun has just made an appearance so hopefully it's here to stay! Yesterday I spent the day with a friend. What a fun day!! We went to a flea market and a few really neat shops. Then we went to a scrapbook store to make some pages for an officer that was killed recently. They are making an album for his family. Such an awesome thing and I am glad I got to participate. I feel we all need to give of our resources & talents and this was one way I could "do good".
Today's card is one I made for a friend to thank her for my birthday present. Isn't this Tilda so cute? I know...I say that about all of them!! In real life it is full of glimmer & sparkle. Hope she likes it!
Thanks for visiting!

Hello! It's a great day here! The sun is finally shining. Hooray!
I had a jam packed weekend celebrating my birthday & Mother's day and my niece's college graduation. I am pooped!
I was playing around with the Tim Holtz Old Jalopey sizzix die. I need to make some guy cards and those are the hardest for me to do. Not sure why but other people tell me those are difficult for them too. I'm not loving how they came out but I don't hate them either. I used some cork paper on the brown card to add some texture.
Thanks for stopping today. Have a good one!

Then Sunday is Mother's day. Hope you have a great day!

Hello! Rain,rain go away... We have had so much rain here. The ducks think my backyard is there own private pool! If we get any more I will have to teach my 2 little dogs how to swim LOL! Today is another gray, yucky day! I just keep singing "Gray skies are gonna clear up, put on a happy face..." Maybe Mr. sun will hear it and make an appearance.
Anyway...on to the cards! The blue one was made with the Sweet Summer Stampin up set. I found that neat handmade paper at a local paper store. It is embossed with rose like flowers. I thought it was so neat that I bought a big sheet of it. I stamped the flowers then cut them out & popped them up for dimension.
The kitty card was made with a digital stamp from The Digital Boutique. The kitty stamp came in a set and they are all adorable! I used my nestabilities to cut it out. The pink, lacey one is a Marianne die. Punched out a flower and added a ribbon to finish it off. I colored it with my Copic markers and added a little clear glaze to her nose.
Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day!
