~~ Welcome Little One ~~

Happy Saturday Y'all !! This lil card was commissioned by my friend , Susan. She is hosting a baby shower next weekend and the baby's room has a hand painted mural of the moon and stars, done in hues of light blue and brown.Susan wanted a card that reflected those colors and this is what I came up with.I used New Arrival for the moon, using the regular cut as well as the shadow feature ,cut in brown, cut it out in chipboard,covered it and then I popped several layers. The lil cap, is from the same cart, once again using both the regular and shadow feature.The moon and cap were embossed using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.I used good ole George for the stars and Indie Art for the clouds. I cut the "Little One" from a portion of a Cuttlebug folder. I inked all the edges with Ranger Inks, added some fine crystal glitter to light blue flocking for the clouds, which I had embossed using the Swirls folder.I added the same fine glitter to the stars and then gave the entire card a light dusting with the glitter, no glue used. I just rubbed it into the paper with my fingers and I like the subtle effect! Thank you all so much for stopping by to take a peek!!!!

Love that big, sleepy moon, Joy! I forgot how cute some of those NA cuts are. What a great idea to put fluff up the clouds with some flock. Love these colors... I'll bet the nursery is beautiful!

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!!!
