Hi Flower Card

I just love this card, I don't have it anymore, sent it to someone very special I am sure. I used the cuttlebug embossing folder and then rubbed over the top with chocolate ink. I also used a die cut for the flower, but I cut the back of the flower(brown part) free hand. Can you believe it, me, the person who can't cut with scissors for nothing!!!!!

2 posts, 1 day!!!

A new promotion for Close to My Heart (available Dec. 18-Jan 31st I think) is "Serendipity". Watch for details coming soon!! Here is a sneak peek at some cards I made with the set! It comes with a stamp set, die cuts, textured cardstock (yeah!) and patterned papers!! Love the papers and the die cuts. The stamp set is growing on me, I am sure I will learn to love it as I see more and more artwork done with it.

Live Turkeys on Thanksgiving

I saw these Turkeys on my way to Bev's for Thanksgiving. When I first spotted them they were closer to me, but as I pulled off the road to take a picture of them they were spooked just a bit and ran towards the brush. I snapped several pictures of them over 3 or 4 minutes Dixie decided to wake up from her snooze and bark at them, the Turkeys disappeared into the brush spared this Thanksgiving.

Beauty Box

I saw on a blog some place someone had made a done this, so I can't take full credit. I pick up the gum in the store, and decided to give it a try. I just cut the box down, measured, and scored. Email me for the template.

Gift of Thanks for a Service person

Not to long ago Papercrafts was asking for projects "of Thanks". They wanted cards and gifts for all types of people. I created this box for them, but they didn't pick it. If you want the pattern for this box, email me and I will send it to you(it is simple to create). I made mine as a thank you gift for a solider. I was real proud of it. Here it is in honor of Veteran's Day!

Charlie is a Marine, over the weekend we were invited to a Marine Birthday Party, the Marines turned 232(I think) on Saturday. Here is a picture of the cake-it tasted good!!!

Happy Veteran's Day Everyone.

New Idea for Liquid Glass & Sculpting Foam

at least to me anyways. I entered a contest with CTMH on inventing a new technique, but mine was not a winner-So I will share with you!!
(Stamp image in sculpting foam, and let dry. Add Liquid glass to the "well" of the sculpting foam.)

Not a Snowflake

The Stamp of the Month has Snowmen and snowflakes. I did not think the snowflake looked like a snowflake. It came to me in the middle of the night what it did look like---Candy!!!
