August 2013
Using up some cardstock, B&T paper scraps and one of my retired 
stamp sets. Love getting to use up the scraps.
I also tried out the Cuttle Bug I got from my 
friend Joann, who upgraded to a bigger and absolutely wonderful 
embossing machine. (don't remember which one she has now)
I do not do many cards but, I think I am improving with each try. 
This week is our Anniversary, So I thought I would make a 
card especially for my super wonderful hubby.   
25 years. 
WOW!!! It really does not seem that long ago.

 Used my Close To My Heart Twilight, Black, Colonial White cardstock
from my nearby stash. Also grab a few CTMH B&T papers from 
my older stash and then a few papers from my random stash.
I used my Black CS for the base , embossed the Colonial Wht. CS 
with the Cuttle bug Paisly.
 The heart on the front wast cut with the cuttle bug using the CTMH B&T 
papers. Used the I Love you sentiment from Close To My Heart 
Acrylix Stamp Set ~ 
I used the negative piece of Twilight CS to mat on top of the random designed paper.
Used the cut out with another Paisley embossed CS for the inside.
I later added a personalized note for only my hubbies eyes.

It's now posted on Home Page BLOG. Go see for instructions and materials used. Just Click HEREHope to get to post this on the main page of my blog later this weekend.
I made this for my hubby for his Valentine's Day. He's helping do something on my main page tomorrow while he is off. So,  I don't want to post until Sunday night.I will have all the instructions then, tools & supplies for you then. I have been a busy bee with cards today.I have bypassed the amount of cards I attempted last year at this time. Beginning to feel more comfortable and having more fun doing them now. I have run out of time. So my next three posts will be all about Valentines, and the cards, and other 3-D art I have made over the last few days and into this weekend. For now, I have entered this into a new Challenge place I came into contact with tonight. Thank You to Lisa over at A Mermaids Crafts for sharing with me. 
They are DJ's Sundries. Saw a lot of wonderful art work there. 
And I have entered it into the Outlawz Challege -Twisted Thursday. 

 I used a sentiment stamp set on the front...
A larger heart stamp set and another sentiment on the inside. C
an't wait to share all of this on my actual blog page. 
Do come back and visit after Sunday for all information
on this and see more.
Thank you for checking it out until then.

Another Card.. I am on a roll this month.
My Thank You Card for  a couple 
we just met over New Years Eve.
A Fun Time we all had.
I did some fussy cutting with my Sunflowers and 
popped those up off the layers. One of my very 
favorite things to do in crafting is STAMPING.
My Card was inspired by a paper pack we had  
last year called Pemberly and the stamp set for 
the  Sept. Stamp of the Month. 
This was perfect for what I needed. Hope you like. 
Thank You for stopping by.

I colored in the Sunflowers and the Leaves.
Used all CLOSE TO MY HEART products

You'll laugh at me...but, that's OK...I laugh at myself all the time...LOL!!
It was a very interesting day needless to say.

Father's Day Card
Not a big card maker but, every now and again I'll make something for someone. 
This time the handy work fell on my youngest daughter.
Way to Go!!
This Father's Day was a calm relaxing day for my hubby. Youngest daughter took Dad to a movie a week early due to scheduling...He got to see Avengers..He was pumped and liked the movie a lot.
I have been ill, so planning anything was out of my hands.
My oldest daughter and her family came through with a visit and bought DAD the other Movie he wanted to see...Sherlock Holmes~A game of Shadows. And she also brought  a sweet surprise ~ Ice Cream Cake. We all got to enjoy this one. A card was made but not by me...My youngest daughter had her creative bone sparked and borrowed/used my crafty stash for this card. I think she did an awesome job. Needless to say..Dad enjoyed his week long Fathers day gifts and marathon of movies...LOL!!
Thanks Catherine for making the Card and allowing me to share with my Crafty Bloggers!

My oldest's daughter's Birthday was last week. I did make her a card...(Not very good with them yet, but I am working on it.)
I just wanted to share it after her birthday so it would be a surprise.
 I did find out that she goes to my blog once in awhile.
 Hope you like it.

She loves sunflowers... So i did my best to make the paper flowers have that sunflower color and I added a little bit of a rose color to give the petals a little more realistic look.
Let me know what you think.

My first set of cards I made.  Used up Scraps from the
Close To My Heart Olivia Paper Pack



Hope you liked.
