~~ Rustic Birthday card for Dan ~~

Dan LIVES for deer season to start....he is like a child waiting for Santa to arrive !!! I will be a widow, until January 31ST, the last day of deer season.I would post a picture of the the huge 7 point he killed Tuesday, with his Black Powder gun, but I don't want to creep y'all out!! So, his birthday is Monday and of course I had to make a card with a buck on it.I used Camp Out for the log cabin, trees, buck and moon. Gypsy Wanderings for the lettering and the hearts...the "smoke" coming from the chimney. I used a punch for those tiny lil stars.I also got out a lighter and scorched the edges of the background paper, to give it a more rustic look.Lots of inking and layering....those lil stars were a bugger to ink, but I did ! Added some distressing stickles here and there, lots of popping and added the dark brown hemp cord.Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!! I hope Y'all have a great weekend !!!



That's a wonderful card Joy.... I love how you added the little hearts!


Great guy card Joy! Very manly accents. Really got a kick out of scorching the paper. (I'm sure I would have burned up the card) LOL Sweet additon of the smoke hearts too. Hope he isn't on the roof with his gun when Rudolph comes. :D xxD


This is a great card Joy!!! Last time I scorched paper was for a 'pirate map' I made for my neighbor's 5th b-day party!! TFS

Thanks for leaving the nice comment on the Cricut Messageboard for my Custom Crops Mystery Challenge album!!



Well, Joy, I saw your card and got out the old Camp Out cart! Was so inspired by your woodsy scene that I designed one for Custom Crops! I love all the little extras you used like the stars and the moon and the twine is perfect!

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!!!
