~~~ God Bless America ~~~



Good morning Y'all ! I decided I better jump on the band wagon and make a 4th of July card. I used Stand and Salute for the bunting frame and A Child's Year for the cute lil children. Lots of layers on this one and lots of inking. I crimped the background paper, that you can barely see, added some vintage seam binding, a star button with bakers twine tied into a bow and you can find LOTS of colors of the twine at http://craftspotbykimberly.blogspot.com/. Added the punched borders and called this one done! Dan and I will be heading to my home town of Selma, for the annual Bearden 4th of July Bar B Que Bash, on Monday!! I hope y'all have a safe and fun weekend !! God Bless America !!

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!!!
