~~~ Happy Mother's Day ~~~

Good morning Y'all !! This is my first official post, as a Design Team member for My Craft Spot ! woohoo I'm so excited to be working with Kimberly and the other DT members!! I used the Easter 2010 cart for the tulips, daffodiles and Easter lilies.The smaller flowers were punched using the Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch. The basket was made using Doodlecharms, still an all time favorite cart! I added a small punched border to the basket as well as some beautiful hand dyed Crinkle Ribbon that you can find at Topped it off with a button and some Memory Thread. I did a little embossing and added corners, made using an EK Success punch. Lots of inking and popping. The challenge this week at , My Craft Spot... ,is We love you Mom" so I hope y'all join us for some fun and get your Mother's Day cards made! I can't wait to see what you create !! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek !!!
Oh and look what Kimberly is giving away this week! A set of beautiful Crinkle Ribbon for you and a set for your Mom!!! Just make a card and link it back to My Craft Spot!

My friend, this is stuning! I love this card and all that work on the flowers. It is great to see you at the DT!!! I am looking forward to see your projects for the challenges. I love My Craft Spot ribbon and the outside/inside stamps... I should check if she has international shiping because I just want to give that ribbon a try.
Big hugs,

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!!!
