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.

Don't Be Alarmed...

Good Morning Everyone...Happy Friday! I hope you have had a great week! I had fully intended to get back with you before this to share some exciting news, but my father in law passed away this past week and things have been crazy. As it turns out, Regina with The Cutting Cafe didn't make the announcement until last night so it's just as well. Can you guess what the news is? Yep...I'll be returning to the Cutting Cafe as a member of the Design Team after what seems like an eternity when in reality it has only be 4 months. I am SO excited! I have missed Regina terribly. I will be posting as I have done in the past 4 months with the exception of each week when I post something for The Cutting Cafe, I will be posting it by itself and will give the recipe with the list of supplies I have used. I officially don't start until May 1st but when Regina told us to "Go Shopping" for files, I couldn't resist this Alarm Clock Shaped card. The set comes with 2 circle words, 2 extra clocks and 6 sentiments and comes in WPC, PDF & SVG format. So....without further ado, here is the card I made---
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: 5.25 x 4.75
Shaped Template: Cutting Cafe-Alarmed Shaped Card
Punch: Fiskars Flower Border Punch (for swirls),EK Flower And Flourish Edge (for the tiny flowers), EK Small Daisy (for larger flower under clock hands)
Accessories: Flat Back Pearls
Base Cardstock: Core'dination
Other Paper/Cardstock: Bazzill

That's it for now. I'll try to get my sidebar update with all the other Design Team Members for The Cutting Cafe but you can get a list of the new members along with the returning members by clicking here. I will also try to stop by my favorite blog this weekend, I know I have been a bad blogger but will try to do better. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy your visit. Have a great weekend and I'll see you next week!

School Is Out

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you had a great weekend and everyone had a nice Easter. I've not been on the Internet much this past week, I've got a ton on unanswered emails and I haven't visited my favorite blogs. I won't have a chance to today but I promise before the week is out, I'll get to it. It's almost that time of year again...for most people, summer vacation will begin next month and school will be out for the kids. Here's a couple of quick cards that I'll be sending to my granddaughters that live in Tennessee next month. This first one is a 4.25 x 4.25 square note card that I used the ever famous Bugaboo Digital Stamp image. I colored it with Copic Markers, paper pieced the dress and popped the image on the crayon. It reminded me so much of my oldest granddaughter, Kayli . If you hadn't noticed, I have added a picture of them to my sidebar. Now...I have to get after my youngest son to get me a picture of the boys---
This next one is for my middle granddaughter, Chloe. I used the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge and Cuttlebug balloon dies---
Here is a picture that my daughter in law sent me via email of a picture Chloe did in her art class. It's her rendition of Claude Monet's "Water Lily Pond". She is 6 years old and quite talented, wouldn't you say? Maybe she'll make another for Grandma to hang on the fridge---That's it for now but I'll be back later in the the week with another card and some exciting news. Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day!

Chistmas In April

Good Morning Everyone...Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you enjoy your visit as much as I enjoy sharing my latest creations with you. If I have inspired you in any way, I hope you will take a moment leave me a comment and consider signing up to be a follower. I had gotten some new stamps from Heartfelt Creations that I couldn't wait to put to use. Since my Easter cards are done and I don't have anything else going until Mother's Day, I thought I would start with my all time favorite for Christmas...the red bird cardinal. The sentiment is a Stampin' Up digital. Here's what I came up with-- I love white on white and thought the cardinal would really pop. The sentiment is computer generated---
This didn't photograph well, it really looks better in real life. The background scene is from Clear Dollar and the sentiment is computer generated---
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!

A Few Fun Cards

Hello Everyone! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you are having a great weekend! We have been having trouble with our Internet so I hope this posts OK. They were out Saturday but will have to come back tomorrow to do a MAJOR repair. Our service is intermitten and very slow at best. Here's a few fun cards I did for our granddaughters that live in Tennessee. This first one features the ladybug from the Cricut Doodlecharm cartridge and The Little Lady background stamp from Cutting Cafe...Oh how I miss Regina--- This next was SUPER quick and easy. It is a standard A2 card that I cut an opening on the fold for the straps and notched out the bottom for the legs. I used Stampin' Up Pocket Fun Stamp. The pocket was stamped in white craft ink and the frog was colored with Copic Markers---
This last one was cut with Cricut Create a Critter and a sentiment from Angel Landings Button Bug Digi Stamp Set. It didn't photograph looks washed out--- I have used my Cricut more in the last 6 month than I had in the 2 1/2 years that I've had it. It all started when my friend Kathi asked me to show her how to use Design Studio...Thanks Kathi! 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. If you enjoy my blog, I'd love to hear from you. Please leave a comment and sign up to be a follower if you aren't already...See you next time!
