~~ Wishing you an Awesome Birthday ~~

Good morning Y'all ! My friend Susan asked me to make a card for her sister's b'day, using a likeness of her horse that she adores, Awesome, hence the sentiment. I used Animal Kingdom for the horse, cut several times and pieced together.The sun is from Doodlecharms, layered and popped as well.The flowers are from the Easter cart and the grass from Platin Schoolbook. I used some wire and skewers to make the barbed wire fence.The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch. I added some stickles and called this one done. Let me tell you,I fiddled with this card for about a month because Susan wanted the horse to look EXACTLY like it does in real whimsy, no doodling no nothing!! I tried inking, I died some flocking and nothing made me happy, not even this end result, but.....that's what she wanted so I hope she likes it!!! Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek !!!!!

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!!!
