~~~ Hummingbird Feeder ~~~



Hi Y'all! The hummers love feeding on the lantana we have planted all over the yard.( I just wish those lil dare devils would hurry up and visit us ! ) I picked a bloom the other day and looked at almost all my carts with flowers on them and couldn't find a bloom that resembled lantana, so I made my own! I used a mat from Cindy Loo and placed one on top of the other, in different directions and welded them together and got the look I wanted,as subtle as it is.I used a small sun punch for the middle of each flower and added a drop of yellow stickles.I used Home Accents for the hummer and the stem and Walk in my Garden for the leaves. Used several border punches, added some beeeeeeuteeful Crinkle Ribbon and Bakers Twine, from http://craftspotbykimberly.blogspot.com/. added some buttons and pearls and gave the entire card a spritz of Glimmer Mist. The paper I have been using is from the Watercolor Bouquet Collection, by KnCompany. 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!!!
