First Birthday


Hello and welcome. I can't believe I'm only getting one card a week done and posted. My creative mojo must be on vacation. Hope it returns soon.

Todays card is for our youngest great-grandson. Number 1, balloons and letters are all from the Silhouette Cameo. Background paper is one I found online. Top balloons are popped up and cords are from my stash.

Evil Thoughts



Hello and welcome. It seems that I've been reading more and spending less time making cards....I'm going to work on changing that.

Todays card is the "chuckle of the month" for my dear old sister. Sentiment (from Pinterest of course) "Today I will think evil thoughts and try not to say them out loud."  After printing the sentiment I cut two pieces of chip-board so I could emboss, with Swiss Dots ef, but leave the sentiment line. Circle and frame are Stitched Circles from Die-namics, image was found on Google, ribbon is from my stash.

Dark Side Roses



Hello and welcome. It's been a couple of weeks since my last post but hopefully I'll be back posting more often now.

Todays card will be entered in the MOD Squad challenge Come to the dark side. This is my first attempt at coloring on dark cs. I'm really not too happy with the end result.  Rose stamp from Gina K's Tropical Flowers and hearts from Gina K's You Have My Heart are embossed with gold ep. I thought of using this for an anniversary card but since I didn't have the right size anniversary stamp I added the hearts. Coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils. Black layer is on a white layer with gold embossed edges.  I would really appreciate comments on this one because I'm thinking I should just dump it.

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

Lakeside Anniversary


Hello and welcome. Well, I'm looking forward to a fun weekend in MN for our grandson's high school graduation party. I'm so excited to see our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids.

Todays card is for our daughter and s-i-l's 22nd anniversary. They live on a lake and spend lots of time out there. I saw several cards showing Adirondack chairs by a lake on Pinterest and this is what I came up with. I thought this would be very appropriate since their son made an Adirondack chair is school. Sky, water and grass were done using cotton balls and stamp pads. Chairs are from the Silhouette Cameo, cut twice from cs. Sentiment was printed on the computer as well as the little name signs on the chairs.

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