Happy Birthday


Hello and welcome. Almost officially fall so we should soon be getting some perfect weather. We love the fall when we can open up for some fresh air....with no AC or heat.

There's a little story to go along with todays card. While vacationing with hubby dears sister & b-i-l, we had daily cribbage tournaments....men against women. At one point us girls were behind so my dear s-i-l came up with a "can" of Whoopass using a plastic container. The can remained in the middle of the table hoping to intimidate the guys so we would win. Well, that didn't really work out so well. We lost again and she stomped the can flat. Hubby found this image online and thought it would be perfect for his sister. In the original picture the hair was brown and the name different so I changed those two things. Sentiment was cut 3 times on the Silhouette Cameo. I colored white enamel dots with a Copic marker and popped up the picture.

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

Take Care!

Mr. Bonehead



Hello and welcome. I'm finally feeling better, just in time for making my favorite holiday cards. I love Halloween.

Todays card is for our favorite server-slash-honorary daughter. She loves anything weird, creepy and/or bizarre.  She came to mind the minute I saw this skeleton head shaped card in the Silhouette Design Store. The card was cut from black cs, face and inside from white cs. For the face I used cotton balls and sponge daubers with Basic Gray and Cajun Craze stamp pads. I also lightly sponged the edges on the inside with Basic Gray. Inside sentiment "The roses are dead & the violets are rotten. I'm freaking crazy or have you forgotten!" was found on Pinterest.

Act your age??



Hello and welcome. I can't believe it's again been week since my last post. I'm getting a little frustrated so I hope these heart issues straighten out soon.

Todays card is for a good friend. Silhouette images were found on Google (Google has become my best friend). Sentiment was cut on the Silhouette Cameo. I cut the words twice to give them a little stability. Inside sentiment "There is absolutely no good reason to act your age." was found on Pinterest.

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

Welcome Baby Clara



Hello and welcome. I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since my last post. I've had some medical issues that have limited my crafting time.

Our son-in-law's sister just had her third baby girl so of course I just had to make a card. Card shape, circles, buggy and letters are all from the Silhouette Cameo. The little teddy bear was found on Google then I sized, printed on cs, then fussy cut it. Buggy, letters & stars have Clear Wink Of Stella on them. Below is a peek at the inside. I thought the sentiment..."Her tiny toes will tiptoe into you heart... and leave their footprints forever." needed little footprints added to it.


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

Take Care!
