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 email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

Lattice, Lattice and More Lattice

Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Ever since I did the Easter card using the Martha Stewart Garden Trellis I have been intrigued with lattice work. This first card is a birthday card for my husband's daughter. The lattice frame was done with Cricut using Plantin Schoolbook and Design Studio. It appears that there is ink smudged on the layer under the frame but it is the paper. There is a very delicate design that does not show in the picture--- This next one is a Thank You card for the staff at Hillsville Retirement Center in Virgina where my father in law was a resident until a few weeks ago. He had taken a bad fall that put him in the hospital at which time he was unable to return to an assisted living environment. It was made with the Spellbinder's Rose Edgeability with strips of cardstock weaved in the frame---
And this last one is a simple note card done with Spellbinder's Rose Edgeability but the frame was cut, the cardstock was folded and the front was embossed with QuickKuts Diamonds and Dots Embossing Folder. There is a piece of repositional tape on the back of the rose to keep it closed ---

Easter Cards

I'm back as promised...with some more Easter cards. Back in February as I was finishing up my Valentine cards I wondered when Easter was so rather than get my lazy butt up to look at the calendar, I checked the said April 4th, I never bothered to check the year. I was in such a panic to get my St Patrick's Day cards done so I could start my Easter cards on time. It wasn't until last week that I realized that Easter couldn't be April 4th and checked the calendar...sure enough, Easter isn't until April was April 4th LAST year. So here I am just about done with my Easter cards and Easter is 5 1/2 weeks away. What am I going to do with my time....hummmm...maybe work on Christmas cards? Anyway here are some EASTER cards that I've done. This 1st one, with the bunnies are for my grandsons. I know it's not very colorful but those of you new to my blog, Nathaniel and Jeremiah are twins and I wanted them to be the same color. Kenny Michael's favorite colors are red and yellow...a red bunny...NOT!
This card didn't photograph very well because of the shimmer paper and the green flourish under the flower sticks out like a sore thumb. It's not that way in real life. I don't know why it turned out so bright---
And this one looks bluish but is really lavender. I think I need a crash course in photography---
That's it for now...If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting, please feel free to email me. Thanks for stopping by...see you next time. Have a great week!

St Patrick's Day...Disney Style

Good Evening...Thanks for stopping by. Here's a couple of St. Patrick's Day cards that I had done awhile back but didn't want to post them until the recipients had a chance to receive them. I had a tough time coming up with something for our Disney friends Kathi and Bob for St Patrick's Day so I decided to do something different and let the paper do the work but I didn't have anything Disney in green soooooooooo I scanned a piece of red, black and white Disney paper then recolored it in Microsoft Word and voila this is what I got...pretty cool huh? This is a tunnel card and even though I've done a few, it's been a long time ago and never one for them---
Here's the inside. You can find the instructions for a tunnel card on SCS by clicking here---
And a spur of the moment card that I had done for my son and daughter in law. The day I was getting my cards ready to be mailed I realized I hadn't made them one so this is what I came up with on short notice--- That's it for now...I will be back tomorrow or Thursday with some Easter cards and a short story to go with it...til then, have a great evening
