Busy Bees

Thought I would post this simple card that I made the other day. I love bees and butterflies because they have wings. At times, I wish that I had wings . I used a stamp that I had in my stash. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I used markers to color the bees. the card is green with gold matting. I can't wait to send this card to someone special.
Have a happy day!

Feeling Pretty Goofy

Kaylene, my niece, made this Goofy card using the Cricut. I think is is so cute and she is becoming a master at making these images with the Cricut, don't you think? He is such a fun guy and you can be goofy when you are with him.


We used orange and green matting for the backround and the sentiment on the inside says " Just goofin' around" . So cute!

Hello Kitty

My daughter-in-law is a fan of Hello Kitty so for her birthday I made this little tin and filled it with a variety of cards. My niece cut the image using my Cricut Expressions. She did a fantastic job. It looks really great and I think Lyndsey liked her box. We have had a lot of fun experimenting with the Cricut.I added a hot pink polka dot and black sheer ribbon bow. I used some silk flowers from my stash on the handle.The black paper backround is glittered and the ribbon is actually rick rack with tiny flowers.

Have a great day and thanks for the encouraging comments.

May May

I had the great pleasure to become a great grandmother a year ago. My little great granddaughter is such a lovely little girl and her personality is so cute. She is really funny and she delights everyone. She likes to wear hats and glasses. I love to make things for her so I will be adding pictures of her as I go along blogging. Her name is Maila, but we call her May May.
This is my puppy and my pal. His name is Einstein. When I first saw him his hair was quite long and he really looked like Einstein to me. He has the most fascinating eyes. They are a bit strange looking and they are a really pretty shade of blue. He is such a good little guy and he is great company for me. My grand kids love him too.

Little Pig Fairy

This little card is a tri-fold card that I made for my daughter-in-law. I have been collecting pigs for many years and I also absolutely love fairies. This pig fairy stamp was in my stash. I colored image using colored pencils and added diamond dust for the sparkle. Each of the tags in the pockets has a stamped sentiment. They could be used for bookmarks. I really like this tri-fold card. It is fun and easy to make.

Spooky Fun

This is Jackson, my grandson. He is 3 years old and what a joy he is. He is hugging my puppy, Einstein. Jackson changes so much in between my visits. Playing with him makes my life interesting and he keeps me feeling young. I love it!!!

It's almost Halloween so here is fun card to celebrate. I made a tag style card. I used a paper punch to make the fence and stamped the Boo and the houses with stamps in my stash. The card is purple so I just added a strip of orange and a strip of green at the bottom of the card.

This card was so much fun to make and I know that my little grandson, Jackson will love receiving it.
Here is a card that my niece and I made a few weeks ago. I used paper punches to make the flowers and butterflies. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I love sparkle so I added a few rhinestones in the flower centers. I know it's Fall but this card looks like Spring. My other favorite season.

As you know I am still pretty new to blogging so I will try this new post. I am hoping that my sis will be able to help me next week when she comes up for 3 days. I have a great desire to join the blogging world because it seems like it is great fun. I know that I need to dedicate time to the learning curve. I am really tech challenged so I hope that all of you longtime blogger will bear with me as I muddle through my learning process.

I had 2 family reunions this past weekend. It was so fun to be with family and catch up with their lives. We have a tradition to play games and I give silly prizes so I have some fun pics of my cousins. I will try to post them .
