~~ Thinking of You ~~

Hi Y'all!! I hope your all safe and sound, the weather here is about to be BAD! Dan and I found out last week that our sweet next door neighbor, Kristine has breast cancer! Dare I said...HAD...we went and sat with Eddie yesterday while they did a lumpectomy and the Dr. seems to think he got it all!!! God is great! I used Country Life for the lil pitcher of flowers and I used a new style of card. ( new for me anyway) I started with a 12x12 piece of card stock and cut a piece 4.25 wide. I scored it at 2' and 7.5 so that I would have an A2 size card. Did lots of layering and inking. Added some vintage seam binding and a button. The sentiment is stamped, using a stamp from the Sweet Sentiments Collection that you can purchase over at . She has some darling new stamps AND if you aren't able to find vintage seam binding she has Crinkle Ribbon in the most beautiful colors !! She hand dyes the ribbon and its gorgeous !! Y'all know I am a horrible stamper, but I stamped that perfectly...the very 1st time!! wooohooo Have a great weekend and stay safe !!! xoxo



Hi Joy, love this little thinking of you card. It's so encouraging! I have one more month from today before our household goods are delivered from Italy. So, I thought I would stop by and catch up on you. WOWIE! What a great catch up!


Joy, this is gorgeous! Love all the pretty papers and embossing! Neat card style--looks great!
Thankfully my area did not get the bad weather this morning. We are having a sunny evening but the wind is quite strong.
Stay safe,

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!!!
