Before and After Challenge at Joan's Gardens

Hi all,
Last minute Donna here, I try and I try and just never seem to be able to light the fire under my butt and get things done early.
Anyway, we were to make a card this week, and then take a picture of it, then bling it up! And then we are to show our Before and After pictures. My sentiment is on the inside. Well, I am not a fancy gaudy card maker, so there won't be a lot of bling but I did add some, plus I am still on my up hill climb on trying to feel better. And it is a slow crawl, but I am determined.

So if you would like to check out this weeks challenge at Joan's Gardens , Joan's guidelines for the challenge, can be found HERE
And of course Selma, from Selma's Stamping corner did a beautiful sample card, which can be seen HERE.
All of what I used was or can be purchased from Joan's Gardens, except the stamp, that is from Stampin Up !!

Any questions, just give me a shout and I will get back to you.

Challenge At Joan's Gardens

Hi Everyone,
Well it is very late and I am very tired, but I just had to post my card entry for Joan's challenge, HERE, because by the time I get up tomorrow, it will be time for next week's challenge. nothing like waiting till the last minute!! That is me!!!

Joan, has some wonderful challenges, and great prizes as well, check out her site HERE, and meet some wonderful people, especially Joan. She carries a wide variety of products and if she does not have it, she will try and get it for you!! 

Most of the supplies that I used, I got through Joan. And Joan and her DT, Selma, both do wonderful inspiring works of great talent, Joan posts hers once in a while, and you can see Selma's example for this weeks challenge HERE.
Then take a breeze through Selma's blog, and you will be hooked, lots of good stuff.

Oh well, off to bed, will post my card, and if you have any questions, let me know. My flower this week is made of vellum and the die is the new kit by Susan Tierney Cockburn, she designed it and it is made by Sizzix, and Joan carries them all. The one I used this week is the Poppy and it is so easy to do. I just love them all.

Take care and see you in a few days or so.

Happy Spring!!

Hi everyone, not that I have many followers, anyway, just wanted to wish you all a Happy Spring where ever you may be living.
Love all the pretty colors and leaves coming out, although I do not like the pollen and how I feel, but it is a part of life, and have to deal with it as such.

I hope to be back to posting soon, have a bunch of new dies to use, got some of the ones by Susan-Tiernery Cockburn, to make all her gorgeous flowers!! The dies are great and her videos easy to follow, if you have not tried them you should!! I got mine from Joans Gardens, HERE. And you can check out one of Susan's videos HERE.  This video is for showing you how to make the flowering Quince. You can see other video's from there for her other flowers. Plus she has to basic videos on showing you how to do some of the basic flowering techniques.  Enjoy!!

Anyway, I am in the process of cleaning my craft room and we are having company next week for a few days, so when the chaos is over, I hope to be able to craft and relax. And as my health is still in the trash so to speak, recouping from doing any type of cleaning takes double or triple the amount of time it used to!!!

Take care for now and hope to see you soon.
