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.

My Favorite 10 From 2012.

Good Morning Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Me...our Christmas has been delayed this year with the flu going around we were unable to celebrate with family members but were able to visit friends and neighbors. As another year comes to an end, I want to take this opportunity to thank all of my loyal friends and followers for their continued support. I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world through my 3 1/2 years of blogging, and hope to continue that friendship. While I don't have anything new to post, in keeping with tradition, I thought I would post my favorite 10 from 2012. Not in order of my favorite but in the order of oldest to newest. This card tugs at my heart. It was a card I made for my mom. Many of you know that my mom passed in October and while I know she is at peace and no longer in pain, the holidays were really tough for me this year. You can find the original post here ---
The birthday card for my son. the original post is here---
A gatefold with a clasp for St Patrick's Day can be found here---
A couple of fun stair step Easter cards. The original post is here---
A card made for our neighbor for a wedding she attended in Brazil. Felicidades...That is Congratulations in English. The original post is here---
My husband asked why I chose this card...I don't know, I just liked it. The original post for this fun card is here---
 A sympathy card made for a dear friend of my husband's who lost his wife...In loving memory of Sarah The posting can be found here---
The posting for a Thank You card for my Aunt for all she did for my mom is here---
And finally a card made for a blogger friend's 7 year old son to give to his teacher who calls her students her owlettes.. The posting can be found here---
That's it for my 2012 year in review. 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. For those of you that stop by on a regular basis but never leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you! YOUR comments are MY inspiration to keep posting! In closing, I want to wish you and yours a very healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!

The Last of My Christmas Cards!!!

Good Morning Everyone...Hope you had a great weekend! Finally...the last of my Christmas cards. My Blogger friend, Cheryl wanted me to make a card for her daughter using Boo on His Bums...this is what I came up with..I hope she likes it. I put this case, her in her winter outfit, added a tag punched with Fiskars tag punch and some Cuttlebug snowflakes..--- 
 Another Blogger friend, Shirl wanted a card for her 7 year old grandson...gosh 7 years old is tough, he's at that in between age. I use the Scrapping Cottage Santa Peeker and HO HO dies, along with CC Design Christmas Lights, Cuttlebug snowflakes---
These next two may look familar, the first is the same layout and paper that I used for the owl card a few postings ago...I love the Stampin Up paper and I just had to do one more card with the Memory Box Perched Reed Bird and Twigs and berries die---
 Also very similar to the Disney card I posted last week using the small Window die from Memory Box and Sizzix Brick Texture Fade Embossing Folder---
That's it for now...I'll be taking a little break so let me take this opportunity to wish each and everyone of you a very Merry Christmas. I will be back after Christmas to post my favorite 10 cards for 2012. Til then, have a great week and Happy Holidays!

A Few Quick Christmas Cards

 Good Morning...I hope you had a great week. I'm really pressed for time this morning so I chose a few clean and simple cards to post today. This first one is very easy to mass produce. I used a Stampin' Up image with the Memory Box Star of Wonder---
Another quick and easy card using 2 of my favorite Memory Box dies, the Reed Bird and Twigs and Berries---
 Not sure what I should do with this Memory Box die, I decided to keep it simple until I had the time to play with it a little more---
This last one is a money holder for our hair dresser. The sentiment is computer generated with clip art that I found on line. I added a few Quik Kutz poinsettias and Martha Stewart Holly punch---
That's it for now...I'll be back the first of the week with more Christmas cards. Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!

I'm Back With More Christmas Cards

Good Morning...I hope you are having a great week.  I fully intended to get these posted this weekend but you know how life gets in the way sometimes. I used Spellbinder Nested Mittens and Cuttlebug Snowflake die on this quick and easy card. The edge punch is from Stampin' Up, but I don't remember the name---   
For our Disney friends, I took a clip art image that I found on line and put it behind the small Memory Box Window die that I sandwiched a piece of acetate between two layers so that I could frost the windows. The embossing Folder is Sizzix Brick Texture Fade and the snowflakes are Cuttlebug die---
Another quick card that I used Memory Box Country Landscape and Star of Wonder die. The embossing folder is Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. Yes, I know the star is crooked, but I fixed it before mailing---
 For this last one, I used Memory Box Virtuoso Music die and a Penny Black image colored with Copic Markers.You can't tell from the picture because it is a little washed out but I put Stickles on the hats. The sentiment is computer generated---
Thanks for stopping by...I'll be back later in the week to post more Christmas cards...hope to see you then. Enjoy your day!

A Few More Christmas Cards

Good Morning...As promised, I am back with a few more Christmas cards. Here is a card that I made for my Blogger friend Shirl for her 7 year old grandson to give to his teacher. I had so much fun with this, I use the Go Kreate Owl with the hat from the Scrapping Cottage Santa Peeker, Perched him on the Twigs and Berries die from Memory Box and added some snowflakes from a Cuttlebug die. I added some Glossy Accents to the berries and Liquid Applique to the hat---
A quick card made with the Nested Mitten die from Spellbinders, Cuttlebug Snowflake die and Fiskars tag punch---
I'm not sure I like the way this turned out. I cut the window out with a circle Nestibilitiy, then used Martha Stewart Branch punch for the wreath and added some poinsettias cut from Quik Kutz die. The holly is from Martha Stewart Holly punch and the words are computer generated---
And finally, another quick card using the Memory Box Perched Reed Bird, Snowflake Ornament and Twigs and Berries I love that little guy! The scalloped edge is a EK success punch---
That's it for now but I'll be back in a few days with yet more. Thanks for stopping by...Enjoy your weekend!

A Few Christmas Cards

Hello Everyone...I know it has been awhile since I have posted, and I almost never post in the evening. I wasn't going to at all, it wasn't until I had several people email me to ask if I was OK that I decided to do something about it. Blogging is a lot of work and I guess I have gotten lazy. I will be sure to visit your blog if you leave a comment. I've got a ton of cards...all Christmas to post but I'm only going to do a few at a time over the next week or so...that way I won't be so overwhelmed. For this card, I used the Scrapping Cottage Tea Time Doily die. The holly is a stamp from Peachy Keen colored with Copic Markers and added Glossy Accents. The sentiments are from Heartfelt Creation and Michael's Dollar bin that I used Perfect Pearls---  
Here's a card done in my favorite non traditional color...PINK. I used Quik Kutz Poinsettia die, Martha Stewart Holly punch, and Spellbinder Lacey Circle. The sentiment is computer generated---
Another card using the poinsettia die from Quik Kutz and Martha Stewart Holly punch. The ornament is the 2011 Heirloom Ornament die from Spellbinders---
For this last card, I used the reindeer from the Fanciful Holiday set from Spellbinders, Martha Stewart Tree edge punch, circle Nestibilities, and Elegant Scroll-work die from Memory Box
That's it for now..For those of you that have been kind enough to leave a comment, thank you so much.
