You are a-MAZE-ing


Hello and welcome. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and were able to keep warm.

Todays card is my first Valentine for 2018. When I found this "you are a-MAZE-ing" file on the Silhouette I knew I just had to try it. Adhering the small letters (cut double) and 'maze' heart was getting a little frustrating but I hung in there and finished it. Background hearts were put on with a stencil and dauber. I'm not so sure I like it but maybe it will grow on me. 

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

Take Care!

Black and White Rose


Hello and welcome. I hope you're having a good weekend. 

Todays cards are a CASE of two cards from lovinpaper you can see HERE.  The one on the left is being entered in Stamp TV's MMC12018. Stamp sets used are Rose Bouquet, Birthday Blessings, Autumn Wishes. It doesn't show in the photo, but I scored lines above and below the sentiments. The embossing turned out on the first try, that usually doesn't happen for me....YIPPEE!! 

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

Burlap Birthday


Hello and welcome. After about a month of not being in my craft room I'm trying to catch up with January birthday cards so I can start on Valentine's.

Sentiment circle was found on an online coloring page, cut with Spellbinders Classic Circles and Classic Scalloped Circles; burlap ribbon is from Hobby Lobby; white enamel dots are colored with a Copic. PP is from Stampin Up's Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

I'm Back!!


Hello and welcome. It feels so good to be back in the craft room. Now my goal is to stay out of the ER. 

I found myself in need of a couple masculine cards, which I always struggle with. I'm not real happy with this one but I'm cutting myself some slack till my mojo comes back. Dies used are Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The circle ones were cut from both black & yellow and popped up. Sentiment is from Stampin Up's 'So Happy For You' stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, hopefully I'll be posting again soon. Comments are greatly appreciated. Have a great day.

Take Care!

No Card Today

Hello my blog friends. Todays post is to let you know why I have been MIA lately. As I was just getting my mojo back after having a pacemaker put in, I had a not so little episode of a horrendous nose bleed which put me in the hospital for 3 days. Our New Year's Eve was spent in the ER hallway. The packing is still in my nose but hopefully I can get that out soon. I hope it won't be much longer before I get my strength and mojo back. I've been away from my craft room too long.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to be posting again soon.

Take Care!
Gerry
