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.

A New Home, A Note From The Heart and A Thank You Card

Good Morning Everyone...As usual, I am short on time so this will be a quick posting. Here's an card I made for a friend that just bought a new home. I thought it would be fun to make a birdhouse but wasn't sure how it would look with a narrow card base but was pleased with how it turned out. The birds and birdhouse are cuts from The Silhouette online store, the branch and leaves are the Bare Branch from Impression Obsession. The flowers and musical note are a Michael's dollar bin punch with the centers of the flowers from the Sugar Egg die from Scrapping Cottage. The sentiment says "Home Tweet Home-Congratulations on Your New Nest".Easel cards are always difficult for me to photograph--- 
When Blogger friend Lorene saw the piano card I made for my Aunt for Mother's Day, she had to email me to let me know how much she loved it. Lorene has gone through quite an ordeal with health issues the last 6-8 month and I'wanted to send her a "thinking of you" card so this was perfect timing. The base card is one that I designed on my Silhouette using a mix of various templates. The branch and leaves are the Bare Branch from Impression Obsession as are the Chickadees that I colored with Copics. The flowers and musical notes are a Michael's dollar bin punch with the centers of the flowers from the Sugar Egg die from Scrapping Cottage---
And finally a simple "note" of thanks made with my Silhouette. I promise, this will be the last piano card that I will make for awhile---
That's it for now...I am working on a few cards for my grandson's but not sure when I will get back to post them. My granddaughters from Tennessee will be coming for the summer and even though they will be making their rounds between several families, we will want to spend as much time as possible with them so I won't have much time for crafting or blogging but I'll try not to stay gone for too long. Thanks for stopping by...Enjoy your day!

I love you Birdhouse Easel card, Kelly! It is so adorable! What a great house warming card. The piano cards are cute, too! I have made of few of them myself. Yours are fabulous!

I check your blog every day and it is such a bonus when you post a few new creations. I love love LOVE the birdhouse. I would have never thought to make an easel card with it! You are so creative! How thoughtful of you to send your friend the piano card. Teal and peach is my favorite color combo. You put so much of yourself into it, I'm sure she loved it. The classic black and white piano card is awesome in it's own right. Enjoy the time you have with your granddaughter, we'll be here when you get back.

Kelly! I have missed you and your fun creations. I have been so busy with wedding planning and other crazy stuff (2 girls - both graduating, one getting married, and one building a house all at the same time - it was crazy). Glad I stopped by today to see you so I could see these beautiful cards. Love them! I love the piano the best - what a fab idea! Hugz - hope you are doing well!

Wonderful cards Kelly...love those piano cards....just have to try one someday!! The birdhouse one would of been perfect for a wedding card I needed for Saturday, their theme was "lovebirds". Enjoy every minute of the granddaughters...they grow up so fast, I have one graduating this June from High School and am happy and sad at the same time...enjoy your summer!!!

These are all wonderful, but the piano card is just gorgeous! I'll have to check out my Michael's dollar bin for that musical note punch.

The birdhouse makes a perfect easel card and love the pianos, especially the blue one. The little note are the perfect touch. Will miss seeing your cards and creativity until you're back:(

They're all very creative. My favorite is the birds on the piano - so much detail. How DO you like that new machine?
