Yellow and snowing

Well my favorite color is yellow, but... It is very hard to work with. Great challenge to get me to try and use it. I had to sponge everything with basic gray just to tone it down a bit. This is a non traditional Valentines day card. Not quite sure what I am going to do with it. So let me know what you think about this card.

Can you beleave it is snowing again!! We are supposed to get about 3 inches. Cory should be getting allot more.

Wow what a big flower

Well I am trying to work on some cards today and this is called a dahlia fold. Well lets just say next time I will use a smaller circle. For instructions on this fold go to here DAHLIA FOLD

Man it is cold here!!!

Well today is the first day I am coherent. I worked 4 in a row and It was very mentally stressful for me this time. I can not elaborate but sometimes I just don't think God plays fair. It is 14 degrees here, not that is cold. Here is the card I made for today. I made a square 6x6. I normally don't make square cards but this just hit me. Oh well so let me know what you think.

I will return in a few.

This was a fun card to make. I used all scraps that were on my design table. I have used the little bird before, so when I stamp one I stamp several. So he was already done and waiting for me to use. Well I work tonight so I probably wont be stamping for the next 4 days maybe 5 I need one to rest.

Painted card

Well I thought this was going to be easier than it was. I first embossed the back of a pad of paper cardboard with my cuttle bug D'vine swirls. Then I painted with Delta cream coat paint. Too dull for me so I brushed on some glitter paint. Too shiny for me so I then sprayed with Memories mists amaretto. Well then that was ok. So I went to the task of making the card, and this is what I came up with.

and yet another card...

Well I am trying to keep up my card making skills, so here is another one. I thinking I am getting worse than better.

Thinking of you on this special day

Just another card I did today. Our carpets were cleaned today so I had to stay down in my studio and create:)

Photo Wallet

I have been wanting to make this Photo Wallet. It was a bit laber intensive for me. Although it was fun to work with the memories of the trip. Cory had such a good time looking at the fire stations and Ivi just loved the American Girl Doll Store. I look forward to going back some time. I think for spring break this year we are going to New Orleans. More on that later.

What on earth??!

OMG, what on earth was I thinking??! Dogs and flowers. Oh well it just mean I am tired and I should go to bed. See you in the morning.

Yet another card today!!

Rick and Ivi are watching transformers, not my kinda movie. Cory is at Jaylee's house, and I was canceled from work. So what do I do? Go and make more cards of course. So what do you think of this one.

Well part of my new years resolution is to stamp or scrap at lest 5 times a week. Well easier said than done.

Exciting news is that I made the design team at stampers ink. What a fun place.

Have any of you ever thought you had too much stuff. Well for a fleeting moment this morning I did. It passed quickly!! Just wanted to add this new card I made today.

Hi, it's been awhile

Hi everyone, it has been awhile. Thank you for all of your kind words and thoughts. I have been sick for 3 months now with nothing but a cough it has really kept me down. I decided to make this card today. It was made with Ivi's smile in mind. I just love her smile and love the fact that she loves to share it.
