I do apologize!  I know it's been ages since my last post.  Please do forgive me.  Life sometimes takes us in directions that we don't have control over?  Mine has been hectic with out going into my personal life.  However, today I felt inspired to share this pretty little card. 

It was my girlfriends birthday last month so I sent this one off to her in a hurry.  I made it sometime ago for her.  The background was sprayed with my Mica powders to make a pretty colored background rather than plain paper.  I tried to show you a close up here?

I used one of my favorite stamp set from Stampin Up and added a pretty flower, a bow and used this pretty die cut that I have to finish it off with a corner square bling brad. 

Till next time.... I do hope your are enjoying fall weather and the beautiful colored leaves. all!

StampFest 2015....

Yes....once again this year I traveled for the  June 27-28, 2015 StampFest in Lakeland Fl.  I enjoy buying new items for my collection and love the fun of seeing new techniques and watching Tim Holtz once again, as he worked.  Here are a few pictures I snapped for you.   I also took a video of him working however, I cannot figure out how to transfer the video from my phone to my laptop.  So these will have to do?

Thanks for stopping and hopefully I'll get a new card posted for you to view from my collection sometime soon?

Double Hearts and Doily....

Hello girls!  Time for another....
I made this lovely card and used my Stampin' Up stamp for the background called "Hello Doily".  A favorite for many.  The butterfly is a little crocked in the picture but I will be sure to straighten out before sending it to someone.   

I used my tiny snowflake punch and used a larger on while placing some stamped pink flowers and another snowflake on top of it.  I think by adding the snowflakes to the flowers it helped add a different touch and special textured look here.  Personally I liked the effect. clicking on each picture it should blow up the picture for you to view better.  

I had fun making this card and will probably give it to my daughter for her birthday.  Shh....lets hope she doesn't peek in today on my blog to spoil it for herself?  I'm taking a chance here.  I thought it was to pretty to wait to share it.

Summer Winds....

I wanted to show you this picture so you could see how pretty the glitter paper I used in the background of this card..... really glitters!  Finally my camera picked it up well.  

This is a older card I made way back in Oct of last year and do not remember who I sent it to?  I usually keep track of what card I send to who so that I don't repetitiously put the same computer generated verse inside the next card I send to that person.

Here is a close up of my homemade pansy's that I made with my rose die cut.  If you click here it will take you to my past tutorial on how these were made from a Spellbinders Rose Die Cut?

I added the sweet butterfly and noticed in this picture one little area I forgot to knock out the perforated edge.  

Well , summer is certainly taken hold where I live with hot high temps and humid air.  I hope the summer weather is treating you all well , wherever you live?

Happy News....

So I know it's been a while and thought it was time to start a new post for those of you who have asked where I've been.  Sorry it's taken so long to get back to blog land.

I have happy news to share with you and made this quick card to send off to my son Ryan and and his new bride to be.  We have a wedding in the making and are just thrilled with my son's choice.  They seems perfect for one another while their personality complements each other.    We love her dearly (Beth) and look forward to a wedding sometime next spring?  In the mean time I made this quick card to congratulate them both.   She received it today and was tickled.

I embossed the heart with white embossing powder and cut them out free hand which shows up much more nicely in real time.  I placed white glitter paper behind the embossed front to help give it a little more wedding glam.  Added a quick organza bow and a plastic engagement ring that I had among my stash.  I tailored a computer verse just for them.  

I love weddings so I'm looking forward to the future event and having Beth as our new Daughter-In-Law and look forward to many years of fun and love with Beth as a family member.  I couldn't ask for anything better!

Thanks for dropping by and hope to hear from you all?
