Welcome to my blog. I'd love to hear what you think so be sure to sign my guest book before you leave. This is where I will be displaying the cards I am making. I will be adding new cards as I make them so come back to see what's new.


To view my cards, go down to the "archive" on the right hand side of this page and click on November. Click on the catagory you wish to view. To get back to the main page (this page) click on the "home" link under the pictures. Some of the catagories are empty at the moment. I will post those cards as I make them. Thank you for your patience.

Ok, so I know this isn't a card.  This is my new dog Rocky.  I just rescued him from the humane society on Friday Oct. 15, 2010.  He was 1 of over 20 dogs brought in from a hoarders house.  He's a 5 yr old chihuahua mix.  A few didn't make it.  Rocky is very skinny.. but I'll take care of that.  I made him a flannel coat... and since I don't knit, bought him this sweater and little faux fur lined boots.  My hubby walked him down to the neighbors house and she did this video of him.  Isn't he the sweetest.

No new cards to post just yet.. just an update

Hi everyone.  Thank you for the comments on the other posts.  They are greatly appreciated.  I don't have any new cards to post just yet.  I have been busy making and sending the cards out as soon as they're finished.  I've also been working on a wedding order.  I am almost finished with it.  But, don't you know that just as I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, I ran out of adhesive and the only store around here open that late was all out.  ha ha.  I will need to make a run into town later today.  As soon as that order is complete I will be starting on my Fall, Thanksgiving and Christmas cards.  I'm very excited to get at them.  I have a few ideas already and a few more brewing.  I'm also getting ready to participate in a Holiday Bazaar that I've been invited to.  How exciting is that?  I will be busy, busy, busy for the next few months.  That is not only a good thing but a great thing.  Hopefully it will keep me out of trouble, if that's possible.  lol.   I will try to get some cards posted here sometime this week.  Thanks for continuing to visit my blog.

Some New Cards as of Aug. 22nd 2010

I had a spell where I wasn't making any cards, just tending to "life".  But, I've started up again and here are some recent cards and things I've made.  Hope you like them.

This is a card I made just today.  It is using a technique I just learned.. faux designer paper tearing.. The "torn designer paper" in the center is not torn nor designer paper at all.. I inked the background then used some rooster stamps I have, then added the dots.  I really like this technique.  I learned it from one of Dawns youtube video's.  She's the best.

This is a candy bar slider.  I love it, the ghost and happy halloween are popped up, so the web is suspended in the middle.  The eyes of the bat on top are orange.  The colors didn't come out very well.. but this is really adorable.

 The suspended spider is very creepy looking, it is flocked, so it is furry.. you can't really see the top of the card very well, but it is embossed with a spider web that is sparkled, and has 2 bats popped off of it with yellow and red eyes. Again, colors are much more vibrant in person.

A fun get well card

I just loved this stamp as soon as I saw it.  It's just the cutest with the little glass and tissue box, and his little legs with slippered feet hanging off the side.  What's not to love.  I know I'd smile if I recieved this. hmm is that sounding conceited?  I hope not, I just love this stamp.   I just had to make the picture bigger so that you could really see the stamp

Rainy Days and Late nights make for more cards.

I really like that when I'm bored or can't sleep, I always have my cards to fall back on.  Here's what I've come up with recently.

On this card I colored the stamp, then cut it out.  The inside isn't quite finished yet.  I need to think of the sentiment I want on the inside.  A birthday one of course.  It is matted the same as the front with a wine glass in the lower right hand corner.
With this card, I've been dreaming of summer and summer fun, which of course includes BBQ'ing.  So this is an invitation to a BBQ.  Sorry about the lighting, was the wee hours of the morning.

This card was super fun to make.  Good 'ole snail mail, it's still good for some things, like mailing cards. ha ha. 

This is just a real quick birthday card but I like them.

And one for the soldiers

New Card

Well hi there everyone.  I know it's been awhile, things have been hectic around here.  I've made a few cards, but they've just been very simple, until now.  A dear friend of mine (Jeannie Philips) made a card awhile ago, and I just loved it.  So this is my version/take on it.  I think this card is my new favorite.  It was so much fun to make and has so much dimension.  It just makes me smile.   Ok enough chit chat, here it is:
