~~~More Homespun Christmas~~~

Wheeeeh. I have been working on that card order forever it seems and this is the last of them! Jimmie Gayle had seen one of my other Homespun cards and she really liked the poinsettia one , so along with the fancier ones, I made her 3 more of this type card. I used the poinsettia from Winter Woodland and Joys of the Season. Used various Spelldinders for the frames, Walk in My Garden for the flower pot and Paisley for the mum. Added some red nail heads, bakers twine and was glad to call these done !!! Thanks for taking a peek!!!

~~~ Happy Birthday ~~~

Good morning Y'all !! My Mother will celebrate her 84Th birthday on Sunday and I got busy making her a card this afternoon. I would have been done with it earlier but, I attempted to stamp a simple little Happy Birthday on that frame and needless to say, I ended up oh, about 3 hours later, using my computer!! Sheeeeeeeesh It was ridiculous !!! I started to use a poinsettia for the flower, but I went back to my all time favorite flower, from the Paisley cart. I added a few more layers this time, starting with a 3" flower and ending with a 1" flower.I used leaves from the Cindy Loo cart. The center is made from small gold beads that my Bud , Sandi sent to me.I used a Spellbinders tag for the sentiment.Added some bling that my dear friend Tatiana sent to me....I have some GREAT friends!! OH and a Martha Stewart punch to finish it off.Thanks for stoppin by to take a peek!!!

~~ Another Birthday ? ~~

I got a call this morning at 9am from Betty,one of my sweet lil swimmin wimmin,telling me that we were going to celebrate Jimmie Gayle's birthday at 12, TODAY! I thought her birthday was on the 4th, so I had to scramble to sling her a card together. She is an avid Auburn fan and she has a yard full of cats, so I combined the colors of Auburn and used the cat from Paper Doll Dress Up. The crown was used, because its her special day and to symbolize our hope, that Auburn will win 2 more games and be crowned the National Champions in college football!!! Embossed the background Core'dinations paper and sanded it, added some bling and used Wild Card for the sentiment. I wasn't real pleased with this card, but she squealed when she opened it and passed it around for all the wimmin to see, so if she was happy....I am too! Thanks for 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!!!
