~~ Sympathy for Sally ~~


Good morning Y'all ! I gotta tell ya, I'm feeling all creepy! I had started making this card because you never know when you will need a sympathy card.Well, I almost had it complete when the phone rang and it was my sweet friend Sally, sobbing into the phone and I knew it couldn't be good news.... Sally is ALWAYS bubbly and in such a good mood. She had just found out that her Daddy had died in his sleep during the night. It sent chills running over me, because I had literally just misted this card with some Smooch and was waiting for it to dry!! Of course I was saddened to hear her news, but the whole thing has given me the willies! (I'm crazy ...I know ! ) I used Spellbinders Labels for the matting, Wild Card for the wording...there is no shadow so I tried making it....it didn't turn out so well, so I kinda placed it off center... Paisley for the flower and the large butterfly is a Spellbinders die as well....the small ones are a Martha Stewart punch. Added the rick rack,oh and I used a Fiskars punch too,and misted the flower and butterflies. I did some embossing with the Textiles Cuttlebug folder.Thanks for taking a peek!!!

Oh Joy, that gives me the willies just reading about it!! Like a chill up the spine!! I'm so sorry to hear about your friends Dad. I'll keep them in my prayers. You did a wonderful job on this card. The flower is beautiful and I just love the butterfly.

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!!!
