A Card for Susan

I made this card with some of the scraps from Ann's' card.I made it for a dear friend that lives in my hometown and I haven't heard from her in ages! I usually call her every few months but I've gotten behind on calling and I'm trying to make HER feel guilty with this card ! hahaha Thats why there is a spider web on the mailbox and the flag is dangling.I started to make some black, wilted flowers, but decided that was a bit much.I used more of the vintage lace and a vintage button as well.The mail box is from DoodleCharms and I found that real looking wood paper on a digital web sight.The flowers are from George.The turtle from Walk in My Garden.Butterflies are MS and I used 2 different CB folders.Lots of shoulders ache from inking all those lil flowers! Used pop dots, added some pearls and there ya go!! Thanks so much for looking and makes my day!!!



Ahhh, so pretty and poignant. The thing I like about our cards is that we get to put them IN the mail. Who gets real mail anymore other than bills. Getting a beautiful card like this makes the mail exciting! So beautiful. I'm waiting for my WIMG cartridge now.


This card is just BEAUTIFUL. Thank you for sharing and giving me inspiration.


I so love this card. It's so pretty.

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
