When I am an Old Woman

This is a birthday card for my friend, Susan. As we are both into our 50's, I thought this was appropriate.Warning by Jenny Joseph.The 1st line of this poem is what I based my card on.I used Paper Doll Dress Up for the dress as well as the hat and New Arrival for the hanger.Good ole George for the tag.Did some inking, popping, added the ribbon thru the treading water punch and added some dew drops to the dress.Thanks so much for taking a peek!!

I wrote a long comment earlier and when I sent it I got a message saying it didn't go through! Is thier time limit on these? Well here I go again! I love the idea for the Red Hat Society theme, I found the book with the poem and several others and gave it to my Mom and she loved it! I will have to try the design if I can find the cuts on other carts.


I received my cards today, Thank You so much!! They are amazing! How did you get the squash to pop up in the middle? It looks like you put a pop dot under the center and glued the edges. What color ink did you use on the edges? Is the envelope hand made or puchased? I sound like a two year old with all the questions don't I! LOL I wish I had an embossing machine to get the dimension on the paper, that's great! Which one would you reccomend? I've been thinking of the electronic Big Shot since my hands swell and ache alot I thought it would be easier than the crank. Have you seen the Xyron Creatopia yet? What kind of pen did you use to make the dots on the "bee" card?
Thanks again my friend, Carol ;)

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!!!
