~~~ Art Philosophy Collection ~~~

Hi Y'all....I am LOVIN this cart!!! I hope y'all do to, because I am sure I will be using it ALOT! I made a few cards for my "swimmin wimmin" friends, Kelly and Joan. They have been so generous in their friendship to me as well as some goodies they gave to me, ie handmade flowers, beautiful vintage laces and MORE flowers ! Thanks girls !!! Kelly also has a Birthday tomorrow and I wanted to make her a card for her special day. All the cuts, as well as the card base for the scalloped cards were cut from the AP cart. The birthday card as well as the Thank you card were made using beautiful paper from Pink Paislee, the Butterfly Garden. I used Graphic 45 paper for the Auburn colored card ! lol Thats for my friend Susan, a rabid Auburn fan and Alumni. LOTS of inking and layering on these cards. The candle was inspired by Kelly herself ....just roll some paper and insert a wick...walla! I made the dangling charms for Susan's card. I'm not much of a jewelry maker, but they will do. I also used a tutorial from this blog,to make the bow. After watching it, I decided I could design that on my Gypsy, using George and thats just what I did !! I know the bow is TOO big for the card, but I was so happy with myself, I just can't help it. I was just thrilled my lil  design actually looked like a bow !! I learned from the BEST that you can design ANYthing on George....Thanks Diane !!!! I bow to you....the Queen of Design !! Thanks so much for taking a peek.....I hope Y'all have a great weekend !! Happy Birthday Kelly !!!

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!!!
