~~ Mother Deer ~~

Good morning Y'all!! I want to thank ALL of you that were concerned about Dan and I during the horrible weather we had here last Friday!!!! It was an afternoon and night that I wont soon forget. As I have told some of you, the sirens wailed ALL night long and then the NOAA radio would start blaring. I stopped counting all the times that we were under a Tornado Warning. Just when we thought we were out of the woods and we could breath a lil easier, another warning would scream at us ! Unfortunately, there were 3 deaths, out in the country and my heart breaks for the family members left behind! Thanks again for your concern,y'all don't know how much that means to me !!

Now, on to this lil card. I sometimes call my Mother, Mother Dear so I made this lil card for her for Mother's Day. I used Create a Critter for the cute lil deer and tulips. After MANY failed attempts at using a sentiment from the Mother's Day Cart ( thanks Darlene) I created Mother, using the Gypsy Font for the M and ( oh shoot) Plantin Schoolbook ( I think) for the other.Lots of inking and popping and the lil butterfly on the deer's nose as well as the others were punched using a Martha Stewart punch. Added a few pearls, a button and some beeeUtiful Crinkle Ribbon that you can purchase at . Thanks for taking a peek !! Dan and I are off to the lake to spend Easter with my baby boy. I hope Y'all have a safe and Blessed Easter !!!!



oh Joy, this is beautiful!!! your mother will love this, I know I do...
what a scary time for you and Dan in this unbelievable weather we are all having...
6 to 8 inches of the wet heavy snow for tonight into tomorrow. Britt is talking snow day for tomorrow,,, in April, go figure!!
Have a great time at the lake with family close by.
Happy Easter,

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!!!
