Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

With Much Love

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. We had much needed rain yesterday so it kept us inside most of the day. Normally I post something that I have created using a Cutting Cafe file on Monday, but I didn't have what I needed to finish what I was working on so it will be later in the week before I'm able to post my project. I had this image colored so I thought I'd make a card for my father in law with it. For those of you that are new to my blog, he is 92 year old and lives in an assisted living home in SW Virgina. How he loves to get my cards, he shows them to anyone that will look at them. The image and the sentiment is Tiddly Inks but sentiment goes with a different image. I used the out of Nestibility technique and if you look close, you can see that I hand stitched the balloon string---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 5x5 Square
Copic Markers
Image: Tiddly Inks
Nestibilities: Circle/Scallop
Cuttlebug: Love Language Embossing Folder
Punch: Stampin' Up Scallop Trim Edge
Sentiment: Tiddly Inks
Accessories: Flat Back Pearls, Embroidery floss, Foam Pop Dots
Base Cardstock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: ATD Relaxed Mat
Other Cardstock: Coredinations-Black Magic

That's it for today. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. For all of you that have have been kind enough to leave comments, thank you so much, you have no idea what they mean to me. Your comments are really a source of inspiration to me! Have a great day and I'll see you next time!
