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.

My Valentine Collection

Good Morning and Happy Sunday to all my friends and welcome to my new followers! I hope you are having a great weekend! I'd like to share with you my Valentine's Day collection...I was going to post these tomorrow but found myself with a few extra minutes this morning. This is going to be a LONG posting, but I'll try shorten in by forgoing the chit chat, so grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the show. For whatever reason I just couldn't get into the the red and pink mode this year so I am happy to say that I finished my last Valentine's Day card this morning!!! On this first card...OK...OK...I see now that the picture is VERY crooked but I didn't want to take the time to straighten'll just have to believe me when I say it's not crooked in real life. I used Sizzix 3D flower die for the roses. Last year my good Blogger friend, Sharm sent me a goodies package with a few die cuts in it...I couldn't wait to get my hands on that die. I spent days searching the Internet looking for that die only to find that it was "sold out" everywhere. After I finally got it, I used it once then tossed it aside...Isn't that the way it is with most crafters? I've got a room full of "must haves" only to ask myself  later "what were you thinking"?  The ticket stamps were a freebie that I was lucky enough to get from the blog of SgtStamper before she lost everything when she redid her blog...let that be a warning to all who are thinking of redoing their blogs--- 
This card is for the 3 year old girl next door. The DigiStamp Boutique image was colored with my Copic Markers---
I just couldn't wait to use these frogs from The Scrapping Cottage/Peachy Keen---
Here's a card I made using clip art that I found on the Internet. I thought it would be perfect for the twins so I flipped one of the the images and colored it with my Copic markers. You can't tell from the picture but I also popped the the images---
Valentine's Day just wouldn't be complete without that adorable monkey Changito from Stampendous. I masked the "I" in the sentiment "luv u this much"---
This image is a digital image that came from All That Scraps. I got it a few years ago so it may no longer be available---
A simple single heart punched from Martha Stewart's Punch All Over The Page Ruffled Heart---
There's those cute little frogs from Scrapping Cottage/Peach Keen again---
For my good friend Gigi's son who loves mice, I had to do something with my all time favorite House Mouse stamp. I couldn't resist doing the "out of frame" Nestibility cut for his tail---
And last, but not least, this adorable digital image from Tiddly Inks---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit. As always...If you have any questions on the recipe or the supplies I used...please feel free to email me! Til next time...enjoy your day!

A Few Thank You Cards

Hello Everyone! I know I have been a bad blogger and an ever worse blogger friend! Not only have I not had a chance to post anything to my blog but I haven't had a chance to leave comments on my favorite blogs either. I'm really pressed for time but I wanted to welcome my new followers. I hope you will visit often and I'll try to do better. Here's a few Thank You cards that were sent out a few weeks ago, but because this will have to be a short posting, I will forgo the chit chat...If you have any questions on the recipe or the supplies I used...please feel free to email me---
That's it for now...thanks for stopping by. See you next time!

A Little Bit Of This And A Little Bit Of That

Good Morning...Happy Friday! I hope you have had a good week and a great start to a new year! This is going to be a short posting..While I thought things would settle down after the holidays, I continue to be as busy as ever! These first two cards were done before Christmas but I hadn't had a chance to post them. My mom was in the hospital with pneumonia just before Christmas and it has taken it's toll on her. This is the card I sent her. The inside says..."We Hope That You're Recovering...Getting Stronger By The Day". A few Nestibility die cuts, a little bit of inking and embossing...wha la you've got a card that looks like you spent a lot of time on it but it was really pretty quick and super easy...but shhhh...don't tell my mom--- 
My daughter in law's grandmother passed away and she has a huge family so I needed something quick and easy to mass gotta love the Spellbinder's Fleur de Lis die for this---
My daughter in law's birthday was yesterday and this is the card I made for her. I used Spellbinders Fancy Tag and Martha Stewart Punch All Over the Page Ruffled Heart. Happy birthday Kim, I hope you had a wonderful day---
And finally a card I made for my dear friend Gigi. I had gotten the frog die a while ago from Scrapping Cottage but wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. Then I remembered the poem I found on the Internet that I used on my father in laws St Patrick's Day card last year and thought this would be a fun wish for the new year---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping always if you have any questions on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my postings, please feel free to email me. I've got my Thank You cards done for Christmas but haven't had a chance to upload them from the camera. Have a wonderful weekend...hope to see you next week!
