~~~Shabby Chic Birthday~~~

Good morning,Crafters !! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving....we sure did !! I can finally post this card,now that I delivered it ! It was just too bulky to mail because of the flowers I bought at Michael's in the wedding dept. It's the one on the top left. They came in a creamy white color, but I painted and misted and glittered it up. I used my Art Philosophy cart for the smaller flower on the front of the easel and the smallest one is a Prima flower that I doctored up. I added some flat back beads that Tatiana sent to me...thanks T....I just used alcohol inks on them to get the color I wanted. I got carried away and added lots of punched butterflies , some lace and more bling. The banner is from the Art Philosophy cart as well and the stamp is from Close to My Heart. The sentiment frame was made using a punch from Stampin Up. I think I glimmer misted the entire card, I made it so long ago that I have forgotten! Oh and I also made the stick pin...I'm havin lots of fun making those !  I made this card for Joan, one of my sweet "swimmin wimmin" ...Happy Belated Birthday Joan !!!!!
Thanks for taking a peek !!!

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!!!
