~~Happy Birthday Sista ~~

Good morning y'all!!! My sista's birthday is April Fools Day and I HAD to make her a card, cause I love and admire her, SOO much! Yes, the spelling is wrong, but I am from the south and that's how we pronounce, Sister down here !! Y'all know my back has been acting crazy and my Mother told me to just buy her a card...EGADS!!! I was highly insulted. Anyway, I used good ole George for the flowers, cut using the blackout feature and cut with chipboard.I painted the chipboard white then applied the paper and sanded the edges. I used Wildcard for the swirl, flipped upside down.The sentiment in the flower was computer generated. I used a 1 1/2 inch punch and Nestabilities for the scalloped circle mat. I used a Cuttlebug die for the center of the smaller flowers and embossed them with the Swiss Dots folder.Added some buttons and a Martha Stewart butterfly. Just used a 3/4" circle punch to snip off the corners of the mats. I hope you don't get too many pranks played on you, on April Fool's Day !!! Thanks SOO much for stopping by and taking a peek and thank you all, for continuing to pray for me!!!



I love how you used the computer generated circle for the center of the big flower. Your cards continue to be my very very FAVORITES!!!
Thinking of you and hope you will feel better soon.


What a sweet card for a sister. My sister's birthday is this week and something like this would have been perfect, but I gave her something with my funny attitude. This is just lovely and will get the wonderful "ooooohs" and "Awwwwwws.' Get passed around the people to see. Placed in a scrapbook for safe keeping. It's that good!

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!!!
