~~~ Dream ~~~

Good morning !! I hope y'all are enjoying this Mother's Day weekend! This is a card I made a few weeks ago while at the lake.I ran across my Mariposa paper and wanted to make a shabby chic looking card with it. I used French Manor for the layered matting, the bird and the bird cage.The cage was short and squatty ( like me ) so I just stretched it to fit, with my Gypsy.The large flower is from Walk in my Garden and the smaller ones are from Cindy Loo. I used a gel pen to cover the flowers with, to add that glossy effect.Added the Dream ticket, a few vintage buttons and Crinkle Ribbon,that you can find here, along with some Memory Thread. I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Mother's Day!! Thanks for taking a peek! xoxo Joy



Love it!!!!!! I need to get that stalk out again.


Beautiful card, Joy......happy mother's day to you!


Beautiful!! I have that stack and haven't used it in a while. Need to pull it out. Love the birdcage and flowers!! :)
Happy Mother's Day!!!

Happy Mothers Day Joy! It is good to read from you, so I know you are good. This card came out beautifully. Love what you did with the cage, made me think that it will be great if someone create some kind of machine that can stretched me so I can be a little bit taller and a little less fat (LOL)... I know I am dreaming...just following your card.


oh so pretty, Joy and the perfect name for this card,..dream. I love the shine to the flowers.

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!!!
