~~ Flowers on a Fence ~~

Good mornin Y'all...Happy Monday! I was fiddlin around with some felt this weekend and made these cute lil flowers. I also experimented with Tim Holtz Distressing Powders as well as some other embossing powders.I used My Community for the picket fence, cut at 4. x 5.25 and I used the Distressing powder on this piece.It blends in so well you can barely see it along the tips and sides.I cut the lady bug, using Walk in my Garden.The lil flowers were cut with Cuttlebug dies, I used embossing powders and when I heated it up, the flowers took on a life of their own...shrinking and twisting and looking all funky....but flowers do bloom in all shapes and sizes!! The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch and I added embossing powders to them, as well as to the tag.I really had fun using techniques that I hadn't worked with much before.I added the hemp for the vine, some brads and there ya go....a lil piece of spring!! Thanks so much for stopping by !!!!



Joy, I am loving your colorful spring cards! Love all the texture and inking and distressing on this one! Isn't it fun breaking out those products and applying new techniques?

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!!!
