~~~ With Deepest Sympathy ~~~

Hi Y'all....it seems I am forever needing a sympathy card and this one is for Jean, one of my "swimmin wimmin" Her brother passed away last week and I wanted to let her know I was thinking about her.
I used the Bloom cart for the frame, punched some flowers, a butterfly and the scalloped borders.Lots of inking and popping, using foam dots. I used several embossing folders and I scored the top BG paper, every 1/4 inch. I also scored veins in the leaves with a stylus. I found a small butterfly stamp that I used on the butterfly, it is almost a perfect fit!  Added some Crinkle Ribbon that you can find here .Topped it off with a button, Memory Thread and a cross charm. I hope we never forget this day and how it changed our lives, 10 years ago !! 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!!!
