Alright, now I will post the second of the two cards I did for the weekly Challenge at Joan's Garden, sorry it is just easier for me to post my creations separately. Joan's challenges are great, some very talented ladies there,and Joan has very lovely prizes! Check it out!!
Thanks again for looking!!
Any questions just post a comment and I will get back to you.

Well, another weekend comes around and I actually had some time to make some cards, well that is only due to the fact that my dear Hubby and I are both sick, so we can't go any where, or don't feel like going any where. So when I get to feeling so lousy I can not sleep, I go in my craft room to work and keep myself busy so I don't realize how lousy I feel.
So I got my 12 cards done for a Christmas card exchange that a bunch of girls are doing at our local Craft store, I am glad that I did not put it off to the last minute!! I will post a picture of them tomorrow.
Right now I will post a picture of two cards that I did for the weekly Challenge over at Joan's Garden (here), check it out, Joan gives out some nice prizes!! This week she is giving a Cheery Lynn Die, and I LOVE those dies!!

Guess that is all for right now, going to go watch a movie, and maybe get a few hours sleep, (I HOPE)!!

See you soon,

Spring Garden Card

Hi, hope everyone had a great weekend and their new week is going well, as we all live for the weekends!!
Just a quick post today, here is a card I did for a challenge and exchange, the challenge is for a Girlie card, so mine has flowers and flowers are girlie, so it is girlie as this chick gets, as I was raised a tom boy!! I was always playing in the Creek with the frogs and turtles, have always had an affinity with and for animals.

Anyway, the challenge is at Joan's garden "here", great place to shop and see lots of great creations and challenges, stop by if you get the chance.
Then my card will be off at some points for places unknown, for the monthly card exchange over at Lily Pad Cards, HERE. Another great place. I have been doing their monthly card exchange for a long time now, and it is so nice to send and receive cards from all over the world.

Oh well, house to clean, dinner to cook, I am sure you all know the routine.
See you soon, God willing.

Some More Choices

These were some of the other options I made for my Christmas card mingle Exchange. I finally decided whom I am sending what, now I have to make another card and I have to make 12 of that design for another exchange I am doing through our local Craft Store, The Scrapper's Cove (Here), a great place to shop and hang out!! The girls are so friendly there, it is like going home when you visit.
Oh well, if I am not back have a great weekend.
Take care,

This is one of the cards I did for my flickr group, for our Christmas Card Mingle, I have to make two cards and send them on to two other fellow card makers, and I could not make up my mind what I wanted to do so I had about 5 cards started at once, could just not make up my mind, so will post a few of the ones I made, they are ok, but nothing is wowing me. The thing is we have to use Hero Art stamps, and I love their stamps, but there is nothing I have of theirs that I really wanted to use. They do have some new ones out for Christmas, but nothing I want. I have a bunch of the new Penny Black ones and will be making some new ones with those over the next few days.

If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I will reply to you.

Off to watch a movie, will be back in a few days I hope, god willing!!

Stay safe, healthy and Happy!!

Fall creations WCM Weekend (2nd) card

Well, This is the other card I created, used some Bazzil card stock again, Hero Arts stamp G2569 Tall Pumpkin, F5270 Traditional pumpkin, S 5316 Silhouette Grass. Used distress inks to stamp with, copics to color with, and I 3 D foam popped the pumpkins. Put glossy accents on the stems of the pumpkins, some bling and a bow. I also distressed the edges of the stamped image and used Vintage photo distressed ink around the edge.

Sentiment is on the inside.

Well, take care for now, hope to be back soon.


Fall creations WCM Weekend

Well had some time this weekend to do some creating and hope to do some more tomorrow. Started these two cards Friday, took the pictures and then finished them up today, did the fronts on Friday and the insides today, had to let some things dry.

Kind of some simple cards, but for me time consuming, I never seem to be able to do anything fast these days. This first card is using some Bazzil cardstock, Heartfelt Creations Stamp Rustic Autumn Wheel. I love their stamps. And I used my copics to color it in with, and some PP behind it. Added some bling and a bow, and done. Sentiment is on the inside. I made a similar card for a fall exchange on my flickr group at the same time, but a bit different. Forgot to photo that one before I mailed it, oh well.

Now I think I will go and try and answer some emails, will post my other card shorty in a second post.

Thanks to anyone that happens on to my blog, I am not an avid blogger and don't have many followers, so i do most of this for me. But just wanted to say thanks just in case.

Take care,
