Guess What Time It Is?

Hello Blogger Buddies,
I'm back from my trip to the Great American Scrapbooking Convention, and little mini vacation.  I decided to stay for a week, and relax with daughter, and friends.  They think I'm nuts with my purchases at the convention.  But in their own way they appriciate what I do, especially when they need a special card. 
I love, love clocks, and when I saw this Spellbinders Cuckoo Clock die, well I just couldn't wait to get home and use it!  I will some day own a Cuckoo clock, but gosh are they expensive! 
Here is my Cuckoo Card Creation.

Got White Cardstock?

Hello Blogger Buddies!!  If you just can't find the right colored cardstock for your next card, why not do an all white card like I have.  I found that you can really get creative with different boarders, and embossing.  I used a Martha Stewart boarder punch along with a set of Spellbinder dies.  I also embossed one of the layers with the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder, and added a small white doily that I cut in half, and added to the left sides of the top layer.  I added a white bow and to finish off the card, I added some of my pearl flowers, and one of my home made stick pins.  I added a sentiment that I stamped in black ink, which the center of the pearl beads have a silver center that match the butterfly on the pin.  Thank you all soooo much for supporting me with your visits and comments.

Golf Is Life

Hello Blogger Buddies,
Today it's time for a guy card.  I borrowed the Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge from my friend Beulah, and decided I had to add it to my cricut collection.  So on our shopping trip last week, I actually found this older cartridge at JoAnn's.  Lucky me, and thanks Beulah for enabling me.
OK back to the card.  I used a 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" card base.  The golfer was cut at 5-1/2", the bag at 3-1/2", the ball and tee at 2-1/2" and the cart also had some grass that I cut at 1" in two different shades of green.  It's not so difficult to make a card for a guy if he has a hobby.  This was fun to make since I didn't use any flowers or large bows.  Have fun creating a card for your guy!  Thank you for taking the time to visit me today.  I sooooo appreciate all of you!

Always Loving You

Hello Blogger Buddies!!  This was such a fun card to make because I was able to make one of my ribbon roses using a 1-1/2" pink ribbon which gave me a very large pink rose to add to the center of this medallion.  I used five layered mats, and I didn't use any foam tape on any of the layer mats.  I was trying to challenge myself to not use too much foam tape on this card.  I actually like the matting on this card because it didn't make it too bulky.  I did use foam tape on the center layers....Just a little.    I think my card would of been too bulky if I had popped up all the layers.
I used the top note die which was cut from white card stock, and layered the large Floral Doily Motif from Spellbinders.  The top cut is the large Pendant from Spellbinders Shapeabilities.  The rose was added, and also one of my homemade pins.  Don't forget to watch my videos on how to make my ribbon roses, and stick pins.
Thank you all so much for your comments, and for visiting me.  I love to share my ideas with my wonderful followers and visitors.
