~~ Happy Birthday, Son ~~

HI Y' baby, will be 34 next month and I bought the Cricut Light Wildlife cart, just to make him this card ! lol What was I thinking??????? This card was a labor of love and I hope he can see that!! John Allen has traveled all over the southeast to shoot a duck ....I don't get it, but he loves to go duck hunting , so that was my inspiration for this card. We have Mallards at the lake and they are always swimming so close together, so I had these doing the same. (Why is the Male bird,always the prettiest??) The flying birds are actually geese in the handbook, but guess they are Mallards. I looked at MANY photos of mallards and tried my best to make them look realistic( cough..cough) This was the best I could do on such a small scale.I used Camp Out for the trees, Create a Critter for the pond and Heritage for SON. It was actually Sons and I just cut off the s, in case you go looking for it. Lots of inking, popping and a little embossing.I used Tim Holtz distressed embossing powder on the lettering, added some hemp and vintage buttons and was SOO glad this one was made.Oh yea, added some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to give it that early morning feel! lol Thanks so much for stopping by...have a safe

weekend !!!



Oh Joy! This is just awesome!!! I know John Allen will be able to see all the love you put
into this card. And I'm sure he is going to just love it! :)


Fabulous card, girlfriend! He's will surely love it and all the work is truly evident. Okay, you may be calling them mallards, but the first thing I though of were the Canadian geese we hear flying by every day it seems. Awesome. xxD


This is so awesome! It's perfect for our masculine challenge this week! :)

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!!!
