~~Oh No....its the Big 5 0 ~~




Good morning Y'all !!! I sure have missed all you creative women!!! Some of you may know that I have this rotten spine....and it has been getting worse, for the last 2 months, so much so that I have to create in spurts.Its kinda hard to make a card, when I am flat on my back, on a heating pad, connected to lil electrodes, signaling my muscles to relax and fight the pain.It ain't workin!! Not as fast as I would like for it to anyway.I want you to know that I have been trying to look at your blogs and leave comments from time to time, so please don't think I am being rude or ignoring you, my spine has been dictating my life lately and it just wont allow me to sit here for long periods of time anymore!! If you girls wouldn't mind saying a little prayer for me, I sure would appreciate it!!!! I really do miss all of you and your creations !!! Oh and Dan had carpal tunnel surgery 2 weeks ago..it has been the blind leading the blind around here !!! I have to laugh about it or just sit here and sob, so I choose to laugh!! Anywho, I got an invitation to an old co-workers 50Th birthday party and I HAD to make Deborah a card. Might not make the party, but at least I was able to make this card....took me about a week to do it...lol...but its done !!! I made it kinda like those flower pot cards, the "icing" lifts up to reveal the sentiment.I used Doodlecharms for the cupcake, stitched it together, added some flowers that I punched out and layered with clear glue dots. Added a zillion buttons, the ribbon, a few stick pins and computer generated the circle on the front. I added the shadow feature cut to give the card more stability.Thank you all so much for stopping by..sorry for the rambling.....but "those that matter don't mind.....and those that mind...don't matter !!! Love you all xoxoxox

Nothing wrong with the big 5-0! That'll be me at the end of this month and I'm actually looking forward to it! Love the brights, cheerful colors on here and those button sprinkles are de-lish! So sorry to hear of your back problems, Joy. My Dan has had several back surgeries and he was always in such awful pain. Wishing you and hubby a speedy recovery!

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!!!
