Enjoy the Moment

Well, look at me! I made another card! It's kind of hard when I'm still in the middle of emptying my craft room, but I wanted to see how I'd do. I just found some scraps and used this stamp that my good friend and fearless leader gave me when I visited her last June. Actually, she was going to buy it at Hobby Lobby, but she let me buy it instead. Now, that's my kind of enabler! LOL! Everything is from Stampin' Up! except for the stamp. I embossed the image with Black EP. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Love in a jar (TSC0111)

I gave the challenge for the Twisted Sistahs this week. I called it, "Have a Heart", and we were to use a heart or hearts of any kind (punched, die cut, stamped, embossed) on our cards. This is what I came up with. I stamped the jar from "Perfectly Preserved" on transparency with Stazon and heat treated it. It might have been better if I had used Basic Black Craft ink, though. I die cut the jar with the Cannery Framelits and then used 2-way glue pen on the punched hearts to adhere them to the jar. After stamping and die cutting the top of the jar, I added the top to the jar and used Dimensionals to pop up the whole thing. The card stock is Naturals Ivory and the DSP is retired from SU! Thanks for stopping by!!

Two in a row!

Well, look at me! Two posts in a row! LOL! That's only because I'm trying to make cards for some friends who were so thoughtful that they sent cards to me recently. This is another VERY simple card except for getting the card stock (Cherry Cobbler) out of that die (Spellbinders Poppy Patch)! Those skinny little stems tend to want to stay in the die. The ribbon is Cherry Cobbler and so is the ink. The sentiment is from "Loving Thoughts". Thanks for stopping by!!

Winter Thinking of You

I've been away from card making for a while. Hand surgery and then my mom becoming a hospice patient along with getting a new foster child have turned my world upside down. I need to get back to it, though. It does help me relax. I didn't send Christmas cards out this year, so I thought I'd just send a simple winter card to each of my friends who were so kind as to send cards to me. This is my first one. Very Clean and Simple! All white with a die cut tree. I added Dazzling Details for the glistening snow. Thanks for stopping by! You'll be seeing more of me now. At least, I'll try to post at least once a week. See you soon!!!!
