~~~ Thinking of You ~~~



Hi Y'all...I have been on a flower making binge ! Some of you have asked how long it takes me to make a card, well this one took the better part of TWO days !!! I can't tell you how many different flowers I made before I settled on these. I almost threw up my hands and trashed it, but I think it ended up kinda purtty.I used Sentimentals for the butterfly, Winter Woodlands for the matting behind the butterfly, Gypsy Wanderings for the scalloped mat and Bloom for the sentiment mat.The flowers were made using a punch and the centers are a small sun punch that work great for centers of flowers..ask me how many lil suns I punched for 2 days ! No...don't ..I can't count that high!! I added some pearls, Memory Thread for the lil curly Q's( you can buy Memory Thread at Michael's and Hobby Lobby, back in the embroidery section) I embossed almost every thing and spritzed it all with Glimmer Mist. Thanks for stopping by !!

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!!!
