Happy Easter Everyone

Gosh, I can't believe it has been so long. I really need to get back into this blog thing real soon. My problem has been not being able to take pictures of my cards. Hope to figure it out and get back into blogging. Thanks for stopping by.

When God closes a door

Love the sentiment on this card, 
and the inside verse is Never, never, never give up.  
I stamped the birds in black ink and then stamped one of the birds in red. 
I fussy cut the red bird and glued it over top of the black bird. 
My card base is Kraft paper. I used black so it would make the white layer show up nicely. 
All it needed now is a olive colored sheer ribbon. 
Clean and simple card, but elegant. 

Stamps are from Zoar and Stampin Up 
Paper from My stash 
Ribbon is Sheer Olive Green 

Celebrate and It's all about the journey

Here is a card using the Sale-a-bration Free Stamp set. 
I think of the Phone booth as being from England. And always the color red. I colored an image red and didn't like it very much, so I just used red paper. Worked fine for me. 
I used the Chevron Embossing folder for my background so I could have some texture on the red paper. 
I think the black brads were cute in the corner and they added a lot to the card. 
Then for my sentiment, I made the Celebrate into a flag banner.  

Here is my second card using the Sale-a-bration Stamp Set. Both of these stamps are in the same set. The third stamp is a Ferris Wheel and very old fashioned. 
Of course the Sale-a-bration program is over now. 
But glad I got my set, I have used them on several cards. 
I used the Argyle Embossing folder for the background on this card. Added a designer paper strip in the middle along with 2 large brads on both sides. 
Love the It's all about the journey. This stamp is from Great Impressions, I just thought it went perfect with the bicycle.  

Thank You for stopping in at my blog. 
I would love to hear your comments, they would mean so much to me.

We don't know how strong


I have made a very simple card with the stamp set from My Favorite Things. 
Love the stamp saying. 

My design paper is from my stash. 
I used a EK Success punch for the black border. 
And added some satin ribbon for some bling. 
The die is also from My Favorite Things, 
I liked the torn edge. As if it was tore from a tablet. 
I like the rounded corners on the card, makes it not look all other cards. 
It is just a little bit different. 

Thanks for stopping by and see you the next time.

Happy Spring

Very clean and simple card, but yet so pretty. 
I belong to a club and we do a secret sister and a theme card every month. 
I did this card for my secret sister this month. 
Love the blue and white together. And the added pearls and ribbon is a perfect match for this card. 
I used the embossing folder for my frame and glued the flower to it. Added ribbon and pearls and it was done. 

Stamp:  My Favorite Thing 
Flower Die:  Memory Box 
Embossing Folder:  Stampin Up 

Hope you enjoy Spring which is tomorrow. So glad Winter is almost over. 
Thanks for checking out my blog and come back again.

Birthday Wishes

I got this idea from Connie Stewart, a cyber friend on the internet. 
It was so pretty, I had to try it. 
Here is a card that I really like.  
Love the Rose Red color and the black accents on Vanilla Paper. 
Stamp set is Creative Elements from Stampin Up 
I used a embossing folder for the texture layer. 
Border trim is a punch also from Stampin Up. 
I attached my bow with a glue dot. 
What do you think. Pretty huh?

Happy Birthday

Almost everything on this card is Stampin Up items. 
Love the blue paper and the red brads. 
I used the Honeycomb and Lattice embossing folders. Gorgeous design with both of them.
And the new mini curly punch is fabulous and some new stamps that goes with it. 

I tried to be creative with this card, but I am not sure if I was creative or not.
I like the textures on this card, it's kind of plain to me.
I like more embellishments on a card.

Thanks for dropping by, and see you the next time.

Happy St Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day 

Hope you have a fabulous day and wear something green 
so you won't get pinched. 

I wanted to show you 2 cards I made for my last workshop. 
They are really the same, one has an added design paper one it and the other one is just white. 

 Oops! forgot to change the backdrop for my white card 

I have had those gold coins in my stash for years, 
and this year I either used them or give them to someone who could use them. 
So this is what I came up with using them. 
I punched the edge of the front card with a Martha Stewart border punch. 
I like this punch because it is so easy to line up and get a perfect border. 
I stamped the shamrocks on the white paper to make the designer paper. 
Punched some bigger shamrock from white scraps to add to the bottom edge of the card. 
I had some shinny green glitter ribbon and it worked perfect to punch out some shamrocks to add to the white ones at the bottom. 
I think this is a cute St. Patrick's Card. 
Then I added some polka dot Green ribbon to the card. 

Hope you enjoyed your stop at my blog and have a fantastic St. Patrick's Day. 
See you again real soon.

Happy Birthday (Zinnias)

I have another gorgeous card to show you. 
These are the prettiest Zinnias. I colored them with a Tombow Marker. I think they turned out so pretty. 
The stamp set is from Flourishes. 

Here is another stamp that is in the same set. I like this one also, but a lot more coloring to it. They are in a Ginger Jar, the lid wouldn't fit on the circle, so I cut it away. 

Below is a picture of my sister's flower garden from last summer. Aren't they the prettiest?  Yes, the Zinnias are in the cluster of these gorgeous flowers. That is where I came up with Red Zinnias for my card. And can you tell she loves the STEELERS.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog and come back again real soon.

Wishing you well

Love, Love, Love this card. 

Gorgeous flower and love the blue color, but I can see this also in red, yellow, pink and even orange. 
I added the border trim to help divide the base color and the white. Attached the little fishtail banner and twine to left corner. Only other thing I needed was a little black rhinestone. Perfect card, well to me anyway. 
My class enjoyed the card and commented a lot about it.   

The inside was the added plus. Love the little tissue box inside the card. I used some scrap and scored and folded it into a rectangle, then glued a piece of tissue inside the rectangle. Stamped the flower randomly on the outside of the rectangle. Taped the two sides to the inside of the card and there is your box of tissues inside of your card. Cute huh? 

Added the sentiments and done.

Happiness Always

I needed to do a card that has Zig Zags on it for the theme of our Club Nite Card. 
So here is what I come up with. 

I love the background paper that I found in my stash and to me it needed red paper. 
I used the Chevron Die Namic Dies from My Favorite Things and in the red paper. 
I added star rhindstones to add a little shine to my card. 
Next I added the star die cut from My Favorite Things also. 
Using the scallop circle and punching all those holes around it, wow, I think I did a great job huh? 
I love how it adds to the plain circle. 
The sentiment is from Stampin Up. 

Hope you enjoyed your stop at my blog and come back again soon.

Happy Valentine's Day

 This is my double Easel Card, the first one I ever made. It was kind of easy. 
I love how it stands up. I used a large red heart BRAD for the little heart to stand up against. The larger heart is lined up behind the little heart. I will try this again using another design. 


I took pictures of the side view and I used a black background hoping it show up better. 
Wow, the difference in the red paper from a different angle, I sure like the brighter red than the dull red. 
I made this card for my Secret Sister in the Club I attend every month. Yes, it is easy to make a pretty card for your secret sister when she is my real sister. Yeah, she knows I have her name. 

I used the Spellbinder hearts, 
Bo Bunny designers paper, 
Stamps are from Stampin Up, 
and the ribbon is from my stash.

XOXO (Hugs and Kisses)

Isn't this bunny the cutest. 
Love the bow and arrow.  
We made this card in one of my workshop classes. 
Super cute Valentine's Day Card. 
The card base is white, the black is my background for picture taking when I have a white card. 

I added glitter to his wings and they sparkled so pretty. 
I made the rosette and glued a frilly red looped circle on top of the rosette, which made it look really nice. 
I added some sparkly silver sheer ribbon. I punched the rosette with a border punch before I made it round. Also I used the ticket punch for my XOXO (hugs and kisses).
