~~ Hark The Herald Angels Sing ~~

Good morning Y' of my "swimmin wimmin" has commissioned a dozen Christmas cards and I wanted to offer her a few to look at and I wanted them to be special. Well, I didn't have to look far for inspiration....I just paid a visit to the UBBER talented Donna Mundinger!!! I knew I wanted to use this angel cut from the Christmas cart and I knew I wanted to incorporate this winter scene Cuttlebug embossing folder and I knew I wanted to use gold paper. That's as far as I got until I visited Donna's blog, Popsicle Toes, and saw not one, but 2 GORGEOUS cards!!! Thank goodness today, she had a tutorial for her latest work of art....wheeeh. I got out my Nestabilites, Label 4 dies and went to work and work it was. I'm all thumbs when it comes to centering things and as you can see, this one is no different!!! But this is just a prototype and I hope the next ones will be better.( that's what I keep telling myself !) I added the gold corners I got at Hobby Lobby yesterday at 50% off...wooohoo... y'all know I love a bargain! Thanks for taking a peek and THANKS Donna for inspiring me !



Oh my goodness Joy!!!! No thumbs here, It is beautiful, I love a bargain also and You did good!!!
enjoy your day,


Sooo gorgeous Joy! This was actually the cut I had planned to use on that card but I got lazy. LOL this is soo elegant! Glad you understood the tut. (apparantly some people didn't) xxD

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!!!
