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.

Thank You Cards To Replenish My Stash

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by. The day that I have dreaded has finally come...that is  the OLD blogger interface is a thing of the past so I am forced to use the new and improved (?) Blogger which is suppose to streamlined the blogging experience. That's easy for them to say...I'm so very computer illiterate it's going to take a while for me to fumble my way through. In addition, Blogger no longer supports my browser of I am also going to have to get use to Google bear with me while I struggle through it! I have been working on replenishing my Thank You card stash. With my husband's birthday yesterday, Mother's Day and Father's Day just around the corner I realized I have no Thank you cards to send so here's what I came up with. I just love this bird house from MFT--- 
This one is a little "cheesy" and a lot out of focus ( I guess I moved when I took the picture) but it's for our grandson's and I'm sure they will love it---
Sometimes you need a quick and easy thank you card with a minimum of embellishments so these next 3 fit the bill. This 1st one was inspired by my son ( son) He made some gorgeous cards for their trip to the flea market a few weeks ago. The layout of one in particular stuck in my head so I cased it---
A simple image found on the internet then embossed with an added sentiment...if just doesn't get any quicker and easier than that---
I come across this digital paper from The Sweet Shoppe a while ago and have been wanting to do something with it so here is what I come up with---
That's it for today...If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting today, please feel free to email me. Thanks for stopping by...enjoy your day and have a wonderful rest of the week!

A Few Mother's Day Cards

Good Morning and Happy Monday to all my friends and followers in blogland! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I'd like to share with you a few of the Mother's Day cards that I will be sending out. This first one features that fat cat image from Penny Black that I colored with my Copics. I think my new favorite color combo is aqua and peach---
Here's another using that color combo with a computer generated sentiment and my favorite Martha Stewart edge punch, Vintage Floral--- 
For this last one I used the Heart to Heart Doily die from Cherry Lynn. Anyone that has this die knows that it was a real labor of love to make this card. I cut and glued together 5...yes...count them 5 of the dies to give it a shadow box effect---
That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by. If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting today, please feel free to email me. Til next time...enjoy your day and have a wonderful week!

A Few Cards for the Girl Next Door

Good Morning Everyone! Thanks for stopping by...I hope you had a great weekend! When the girl next door came over and asked me to make her a few cards, I had no idea what I was going to do because she didn't know what she wanted. She only knew that one of the cards needed to be special and needed the sentiment to be in Portuguese. Here is what I came up with...I hope you like them Stef. The first one is the "special" wedding card that is a 5x5 easel card, using one of my favorite Martha Stewart punches, Vintage Floral edge punch, Petite Oval/Scallop from Spellbinders and Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folders. Because of the embellishments, I needed to make a box for it. It didn't photograph very well, what you can't tell from the picture is the background paper is paper that I made using the silk paper technique and is gorgeous in real life and really adds texture. You also can't tell I heat embossed the edges of the card and the branch punch in the flower spray with gold glitter embossing powder---

She had seen the wedding cards I had sent to my son and daughter in law and thought it would be nice for a friend's wedding that she had missed. I promise you, this will be the last of the bride and groom hearts you'll see for awhile. A very simple card, using another of my favorite Martha Stewart edge punches, Lace Hearts and the embossing folders from the Cuttlebug Love Language, Emily's Bouquet and Quick Kutz Stripes Label---
She also needed a card for her daughter's teacher who is pregnant. The image is She's All That Brush Set from Stampin Up---
This last one, she picked from my stash so those not new to my blog may have already seen it---
That's it for today...Thanks for stopping by. If you have a question on the recipe or supplies that I have used in my posting today, please feel free to email me. Til next time...enjoy your day and have a wonderful week!

Things have been crazy since the return of our trip to Tennessee and this is the first chance I've had to spend any real time on the Internet. This is going to be a long posting so I'll try shorten in by forgoing the chit chat...If you have any questions on the recipe or the supplies I used...please feel free to email me! My son and daughter in law had taken some craft items they had been working on to the flea market last weekend...this posting is my contribution to the cause. A few quick and easy graduation cards--- 
And a few quick wedding cards that are all the same with some slight variations---
This last card doesn't belong with this posting but I needed to slot it in somewhere. It is our Easter card to our Disney friends Kathi and Bob. I hope everyone had a nice Easter---
That's it for now...I'll try to get back the first of next week with some more cards that I've been working on but until then...Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed your visit.
