~ Vintage Birthday~

One of my "swimmin wimmin" has a birthday next week, Ms. Betty and if I'm not mistaken, she will be 75....she is vintage. I used very little cricut as you can see, but I didn't want to take away from this lovely Cosmo Cricket paper, with too many images.I used Celebrations for the cupcake and the butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.Zig zagged around a layer, did some inking, added the grosgrain ribbon and button, with hemp thru the button.Made it a pedestal card because that's what those sweet lil ole wimmin love! So there ya have it...I hope you enjoy it, as much as I enjoyed, watching it unfold!! Thanks for stoppin by!!!



I love the pedestal cards, they make such a nice display, great colors and love the vintage look!
have a great evening!

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!!!
