A Thank you for Betty

Good morning Y'all !!This is a card I made for one of my "swimmin wimmin", Ms.Betty.I went to her house yesterday just to pick pears and I came home with a back seat full of goodies !! Not only did I get a bag filled with Bartlett pears, she gave me a jar of pear preserves,I got some scupanons,( a native fruit, kin to the grape) tomatoes, smell cant eat these, but they sure do smell good, sitting in a bowl on my kitchen counter ! Before her husband Jack died, they did arts and crafts, so she sent me home with a pair of cute lil sunflowers dolls and I got to select a roll of ribbon from her drawer that was filled with ribbon.I was in heaven!Oh and I got a backseat filled with fresh eucalyptus!! We had a nice visit and I just had to make her a card , thanking her for all my treasures! I used the ribbon that she gave me too.This pear is from Home Accents, cut at 3"...3times.The paper is Classic K from K&Co and I added that old lace I found at the flea market.Lots of inking and popping. I had no intentions of making another pedestal card any time soon, but when I took my cards to the Y yesterday and showed them to her, she played with the Christmas Village card forever and was amazed at how it sat up!! She showed how it worked to everyone that walked by!! So I HAD to make her this style card.Thanks so much for stopping by..have a great weekend !!!

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!!!
