Shabby Chic card and bag

Good morning Y'all !!! I hope all of you are going to have a wonderful weekend ! I'm headin to Selma as soon as I finish posting this. Dan asked me late yesterday afternoon if I had a birthday card in my stash, that he could give to his sister for her birthday on Saturday....really ??? I am so glad that I had some flowers already made! I used Bramble Rose paper , corrugated black card stock and alot of Snow Tex, a new to me product ,I have been watching some talented ladies use on YouTube. If you aren't familiar with Snow Tex, you can buy it at Hobby Lobby in the paint department.
The cupcake is a wooden die cut from Michael's that I covered in rosettes,pearls and lace. Some of the flowers I made, like the pink peonies, from a ever so soft chiffon.I also made the large blue and yellow roses, using the Tattered Florals die.
Thanks so much for taking a peek !!!!!  xoxoxoxo


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!!!
