~~~ Celebrate ~~~

Good morning!! I am on a Shabby Chic binge and this tag I made for Diane, proves it ! I might have gotten carried away with the roses, but I couldn't help myself! I printed off a vintage image of roses and slathered it with ink and Crackle Glossy Accents, a gift from Diane...thanks D !! The paper roses are a combination of Art Philosophy and a Sizzix die. The butterflies were made using a MS punch and the antennae are flower stamens given to me by Tatiana...thanks T !!   I painted the bare chipboard tag a pale blue, added lace, some bling and I think I misted it all with some glimmer mist. Didn't I D ? lol I hope it's shimmery! lol I made a tag for the back and wrote her a little note and used some vintage seam binding on both tags. Oh and I made the stick pin. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek !!!



WOW Joy! These are beautiful!! Just beautiful!!!!! I love all the roses and that darling butterflies. The stick pin is wonderful. I just love them!!! :)


Gorgeous Joy! Love the Vintage image and your flowers are beautiful! So many perfect details with the stickpin, butterflies, and ribbons!!
Happy Valentine's Day!

As the lucky "D" who received this tag, I can tell you without a doubt that these pictures do this tag no justice at all. It is 100 times more gorgeous in person. I can hold this in my hands, and still not figure out what Joy did to make this as amazing as it is. I really do believe she has some magic power with paper she's not admitting to. The vintage image couldn't be more stunning if she'd painted it from scratch herself. The roses - well, I am completely in awe. I have successfully rolled one rose in my life...and it didn't look like any of the 8 that are on here. The lace is amazing. The pearl bling is added in just the right places and colors. The stickpin looks like it's been hanging around in someone's well taken care of jewelry collection for 50 years or so. Honestly, I can't get over this piece of art. And, I can't believe it belongs to me. Joy, my dear, you are amazing.

I came visiting tonight because I've been worried about you. When I saw I had commented on this tag everywhere but here, my cheeks got hot with embarrassment. How did I not come here to tell you again how much it means to me that you made this for me?! I cherish it. And, now, my friend, I have to tell you that you have a couple of girls in New England pretty worried about you and Dan.

T. and I are talking about a road trip to Alabama. We are wondering how we are going to make out in Pratville with our accents. ;) You may have to be our interpreter. Seriously, if you look at this, just let us know that all is well. And if it's not, let us know how we can help. We *heart* you! D. and T.


Great blog - is there a way to get posts in email?

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!!!
