~~~ Shabby Chic Tags ~~~

Good morning Y'all. I was a lil sick last week and didn't feel like creating, but I did watch alot of videos on Youtube and I was inspired to make these tags. I used Tags Bags Boxes and More for the 1st tag. You have to look hard to see that I stamped an image on the background of this Pink Paislee paper and embossed it with gold PearlEx. I added a butterfly from the Bloom cart and a little bling.The beautiful roses were a RAK from Tatiana, as well as the pretty brown ribbon...thanks T !! Diane inspired me to drag out my beads and I made the pin, using a vintage hat pin I found at an Estate sale. Thanks D for the inspiration!! The stamp is from Close To My Heart, I just cut it up and layered it. Lots of inking on both tags, added some feathers and curly Q's using Memory Thread. I wish I could take credit for the Birdhouse card, but I saw one similar to this one on Utube and I can't find it to give the talented lady credit. I used Stretch your Imagination for the birdhouse, Art Philosophy for the brown flowers in the corner and Sentimentals ( I think) for the bird. I also stamped on the background of this tag, used glimmer mist and Rub and Buff to give it an aged look. I made another pin and added this adorable charm I found at Hobby Lobby. Thanks for stoppin by and taking a peek!!

Beautiful tags, Joy! I love the bird house the best, but they are both gorgeous! They are even more stunning up close and personal!


Oh Joy, these are beautiful!!! and yes I am loving AP, just need to get it to work with my design studio. they told me in a couple of weeks and it should be ready, so much to look at in that cart. I have been looking at you tube also for ideas and can really learn a lot, I can now tie a nice bow, so you might see more on my cards!

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!!!
