Happy Thursday Morning all.  As promised here is another card I made, and yes with more Heartfelt  Creations papers and bling.  This card was for my card groups weekly Challenge this week, it was "Sunflowers"  so this is what I came up with.  I must admit I do like it, if I say so my self...... Added a closer look at the fussy cut flowers that I rounded a bit with my stylus and added some tiny, tiny beads and glitter to the centers, it just needed something more.  Any way there you have it.  Thanks for popping by and visiting.  I'll be back tomorrow with some more cards to share.

Until next time
Happy Card Crafting

Has it really been a month!

Well Hello to all my crafty friends and followers.  I am stunned that it has been a month since my last post.  Shame on me!  Just a bit busy here though, sorry.  But I do have cards to share.  I was asked by a close friend to make her a card for the passing of her uncle, who raised her, to give her Aunt.  She even gave me the image she wanted used on the sympathy card.  This truck holds lots of sweet happy memories for her of  her and her uncle riding, laughing, giggling and just having fun in / with the truck!  I hope she will like it! 

The flowers and dies cut background are all from Heartfelt Creations.  My favorite place to shop these days!  That's all for now check back in the morning for more of what I've been up to the past month.

Until next time

Flower Crazy

Hi all and a happy Sunday to all.  By the time you read this I will be 1/2 way to Florida from Texas.  We are off to handle closing up and selling MIL's house.  Not a fun trip but a needed trip.  So as some of you know my parents moved here to Texas last August so my mum is a bit nervous about being here alone with me in Florida for 5 days, sooo I made all these cards and she should hopefully get one card each day that I am gone in the mail.  And I have several friends checking in on them daily too.  I hope she likes theses and is OK while I am gone..... here are the cards:




As you can see I am quick becoming addicted to using Elizabeth Craft glitter, stickers and more. I love their products!  I think that I like making these kinds of card best at the moment.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'll be back late next week.  Hugs all around!

Until next time

2 More Christmas Cards done

Good Morning Peeps.  I was in the mood for Christmas cards and well just plain needed to get started on them for this year.  Also this year I am making a bunch to give to the Nursing Home where my MIL lived for a short time.  Think they would love to receive them.  Any ways, I made 2 cards with the same stamp just used different colors.  I absolutely love this stamp, need to play around with it a bit ans see what else I can come up with, but I thought these where way cute. What you think?

That's all I have for today.  Check back cause I have a bunch more cards to share after I snap some pictures.  Hope everyone is having a nice summer and keeping cool where ever you are.

Until Next time

Happy 4th of July

I thought I would share some of my plants that I have been working on growing.  First you have to understand I do not have a green thumb at all.  And we have sun on our back Patio for most of the day.  So I found 2 flowering plants that love hot weather and direct sun light.  I have had them 3 weeks now and wow are they doing well.  I love sitting there and seeing them.  I am trying to grow some herbs to but not having a lot of luck there.  Planted Basil, Rosemary, Oregano and Parsley.  So far only the Parsley has begun to grow and the oregano is just popping up.  Oh well, there's always next season....... Here's some pics to enjoy. Hope everyone has a safe & fun 4th weekend........................................

Until Next Time,
     By Bye

Happy 4th of July 2014 to all!

I'm still here, promise!

HELLO!  I am sorry to have been gone for so long, sometimes life has different ideas for us.  Won't go into the whole long store but the short version is we have had to put my MIL that lived us in a nursing home.  She had a hrt attack and the dementia became so bad we could not handle her at home any longer.  It's been a long few months but things are settling down hopefully.  Keep us in your thoughts, pls.

Now I want to share abunch of cards I made over the time gone.  Let me know what you think.

Ok so that's all I have for today.  Am off to re-pot some pretty plants and herbs.  Then maybe somemore cards will be made who knows.  Have a wonderful day !

Until Next Time,

A few Birthday Cards

Good Afternoon and Happy Saturday!  I want to send a warm welcome to all my new followers and of course to all of you who drop by and follow me here.  I read and love all your wonderful comments.  Thank You!

OK, Now for 2 birthday cards I made earlier this week.  The 1st one up is one for my nieces 15th birthday. She loves turtles and her fave color is yellow, so this is what I came up with:

And here's the inside too:
 Made this cad with the turtl digi I had in my files but unfortunately i failed to name who I got it from, sorry.  Colored it with Copics and fussy cut it out.  Added tiny white bow to top of presents, form Wal-mart.   Flowers are from Recollections.  Used  cuttle bug embossing folder, b/c I thought it kind of looked like the turtle's shell.  The green enamel dots are recollections also.  The die cut is from Spellbinders that I had for ages.  I used the cut out from the die cut to make a yellow space to match the front and stamped sentiment from Anna Griffin in blue.  Also stamped yellow tiny flower in corner also from Anna Griffin.  And that's it.....

I also made a birthday card for a dear friend, who loves to get handmade cards, Maria E.  She loves Stargazer Lilies, Shoes and the color purple, we both like all of theses actually!  So I made this card for her this year:                                            

OK, here I used another Spellbinder Die and the shoe die is from Top Dog Dies.  The flowers are from a Google search for lilies coloring pages.  It was a quixcke card but I really like the end product.  Hope you all do too.

Until next time,

Pocket Card

Morning everyone.  I had to make a card for my card groups weekly challenge this week and the idea was to make a shaped card of a thing, not just a square or circle.  It actually had to be something.  So I have been wanting to try my hand at a pocket card. And so I decided on a flower pot pocket card.  I am very happy with the out come.  There are so many tutorials out there for this type of card.  I watched several and then just made this one from memory.  I did not add a sentiment yet, because I am not sure who the receiver will be.  Here is a link to one tutorial that was the easiest for me to follow:  Steph's Paper Crafting.

                                                        flower pot all together

                                                Sentiment part out of pot pocket

Steph made it very easy to make this card. If you get the chance follow the link above to the tutorial and see for your selves.  And tell her I sent you, Please.  Well that's all for today.  Thanks so very much for coming by and do leave me some love.....

Adding this card to the following Challenge(s):
