~~ Love is in the Air ~~

Last, but certainly not least, a card for my 33 year old baby, John Allen. I had NO idea what to put on his card so I put lots of stuff. It's a lil busy,but like I said, I threw everything at this card, except the kitchen sink! I used Doodlecharms for the hearts, layers and layers of hearts with UTEE on the smallest one.The wings are from Indie Art, all glittered up with Martha Stewart fine crystal glitter.The sentiment was computer generated and I used a nestabilities round scallop to mat it with.The X and O are from George. This card weighs a TON...wanna know why? Other than all the layers, I was looking at this card and was ready to take a picture, only to realize I had glued it down ...upside down. Yep. Upside down. I was not going to try and pull it apart..too much ATG tape, pop dots etc. So, the post office will make a killing off of this card.Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek....I'm off to make a big pot of homemade soup and get ready for the 4" of snow they are predicting for us tonight and tomorrow !!! brrrrrr Stay warm Y'all !!!

LOL.. Oh Joy I am sure John Allen will love this card (as much as the post office)


Oh m'gosh, Joy, I've done that before! More than once, I might add! I think this is a great card for your son... he'll love it! The utee looks awesome and I love the wings!

Joy, great job on this card. Your son is going to love it. These cards we make do get costly to mail, but when you think about how much the recipient appreciates a hand made card like the one you just's worth every penny!

Very, very nice! So pretty!


Well, it didn't need the kitchen sink did it. It's gorgeous! I wish I could lay down a piece of paper and throw things at it and have it look like that!! The heart with wings is wonderful. The whole card is.... perfect!

love this card and I am sure your son will to. Also love the paper. I bought this paper too and love it so much that I had to resist the temptation to hoard it!


Oh WOW Joy, I must have missed this one! GORGEOUS! xxD

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!!!
