My Cozy Home Card

This little card is a collaboration with my niece, Kaylene, my sis, Sue and I. My sister textured the white background . Kaylene cut out the silhouette with the Cricut using the cartridge " A Child's Year". I helped assemble the card. My photography doesn't highlight the embossed frame around the images very well, but the card really looks cute. I know the challenge is Cozy Home and I don't actually have a home here, but this image reminds me of my children bringing their tree to a cozy home. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. I am so thankful for all of my blessings and for my health and that of my family. Enjoy

Button Button

This is a really simple card that I made to share with my quilt group. They are a God send to me. They have each helped me through some tough times and I really appreciate them. I am also sharing a picture of them that I took at our last quilt retreat. Thanks gals for all of your love and support.

I used a Stampin' Up stamp set called Quilt Quips. I think it turned out kind of cute and I hope that they will enjoy receiving them. My cards are really simple but I hope with practice that my skills will improve. This card is my part of the Gingersnap Creations button challenge. I am a button collector so this challenge was really fun for me.

Snowy Celebrations

I just got home from visiting my son, Adam, he lives in Mansfield, Mass. I came home to snow on the ground so I thought I would make a card for Crafty Creations metallic challenge. I used metallic paper for snowflakes. As it happens it works for monochromatic challenge for Gingersnap Creations. I used Stampin' Up Holiday Lineup stamp on white card stock the background is blue dot card stock from Lasting Memories. I punched out different snowflakes of different papers. I think the metallic snowflakes make my card really fun

I am also sending a picture of my granddaughter, Hayley, she is a senior in high school, and she is such a sweetheart. I don't get to spend enough time with her. I wish that we lived closer. I really miss spending time with Adam and his family.

Bloomin' Beautiful

Oh, what fun it is to color today. I made this card to send to my daughter today. The stamp I used is Bloomin' Beautiful from Stampin' Up. I used markers to color it. I like the way it turned out. I used velvet ribbon to embellish. The card stock is from Lasting Memories.
I hope you all had a great day today.
.My friend and I had a great day today. We went to a cowboy poetry festival . It was so fun to listen to these talented people relate stories about the Old West. There were also a lot of great cowboy music to enjoy. My husband loved cowboy music. I guess we would all like to be cowgirls and cowboys. Tomorrow I think I will make a cowgirl card for my friend.

Finally a New Card

I am finally posting a new card. As I said in past posts I have been sewing up a storm for my family for Halloween. This card is really simple, but I love it because it incorporates two of my favorite colors, pink and green. I used a stamp set from Stampin' Up called "Time Well Spent". I love the look of the flower and the sentiment. I used card stock from Lasting Impressions. The green is especially fun because it is polka dot. I colored the flower with markers and cut it out I embellished the flower and the scallops with half pearls.
