Merry Christmas Card #4

Hi Everyone...
 I wanted to take 5 minutes and wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Today was a great day! My daughter was so excited by the gifts that Santa left. At one point she was talking so fast I had to ask her to slow down. I'm posting a card I made a couple of weeks ago. I gave this card to my friend's daugther Kirstin who babysits for us from time to time!!!
Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!!!

Chiristmas Card #2

Before we know it Christmas will be here!!! I used my MS lattice punch to make this card. I liked the ribbon
 and the flower. I was really taken by the non tradition colors on the pattern paper for Christmas.
Enjoy, remember I love your comments.

Christmas Card #1

This is the first year I have decided to make Christmas cards instead of buying them. I have been working on several different ones. Here is the first of many to share. You may not be able to see it, but under the ornament I used glitter stickles to give it some shine. In the next one I will use glitter for more effect!!! Remember, your comments are always welcome!!!

Many Thanks!!!!

I made this card to say thank you to some of the people who supported the fundraiser for my daughter's nursery. My husband took the flyer to work and got several orders to my surprise! I thought it would be nice to make a card to say thank you!!! I also placed an updated photo of our daughter inside as an added thanks for supporting us! Please tell me what you think of my work!

This card was made during the graduation season. I had intended to give it away but  changed my mind. I liked the colors.  I have a bad tendency of making cards and not giving them away!!! Until next time..... Enjoy!

Make You Smile

Hi Everyone,
This is a card I made one day when I came home from work. I was feeling a mojo that day so I came home and did a little crafting. One of my favorite prints is from Basic Grey's Sugar Rush paper pad. The paper is grey with pink, green and orange flowers. I used grosgrain ribbon, punches, and of course some BLING!!! Hope you like it !!!

Christmas in October!!!

Hi Everyone,

Everyone is talking about making Christmas cards and for some reason tonight I got the Christmas spirit. I used a collection of Christmas paper called, Sweet Dreams, Holiday Avenue. I bought it from Micheals during the summer and I really like the colors. Some are traditional while others are just a little off the Christmas path! Here are two cards I made to start the season !!! I hope you like!

Colors I like!

Good morning all! Today is the day we take my mom to the airport so she can return to SC. I made the card in some of my favorite color combination let mom know that my little family will miss her when she leaves. She is a big help to us as all grandparents are to their children's family. One of my favorite embellishments to use is grosgrain ribbon. Just wanted to share some of my creativity. Hope you like it!

Summer..... yes it makes you lazy!

This summer went by way to fast, but I was able to spend some time in my craft room making cards and spending time with family and friends. I was able to take a "Momcation" with my good friend Anicka in July. We traveled to Virginia and North Carolina to visit some crafts stores and buy craft materials! Yeah!!! We ate to much, spent to much, but the time spent together was not to much!!! I miss my buddy! Many of you know she lives in Bermuda and our parents took the kids so we were able to get a much needed "BREAK". I now have a stock pile of cards so I will be uploading and blogging on the regular! Hope you all enjoy!! Please some feedback on my work! This card was made with two people in mind! Both of my best friends live far away (Bermuda & California) but what I love most about them is that when we talk its like we were at each others house the day before! Love you bunches Chilain and Anicka!!!

Mother's Day Card

I did want to make Mother's Day cards for all my mommie friends, but with work and family the time got away! I will do my best to make sure I am ready next Mother's Day. However, I will have Saturday to make 3 more of these for some special Mommie's. This card was made with my daughter's daycare provider in mind. I truly appreciate what she does with my daughter while mommie is at work, with that said I wanted her to know she is appreciated. My card design comes from one of my favorite bloggers, KWerner. My card making buddy Anicka design was beautiful and I wanted to do my own version!!! Thanks ladies!
