Hello everyone I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a safe black Friday.  I thought that I would share this cardinal/poinsettia card to bring some sparkle to my blog.  Have been away for a while but I'm back and in the mood for  making cards I'm going to try and post once a week or more to share my inspiration to you.  Well back to the card There are three layers with many embellishments and a little sparkle added.  I made the cardinal using punches and many layers to give it that fullness.  The cardinal is very special during the holiday season it gives a little color in the yard and is an awesome bird.  Well enjoy to next time have a great one.

With Sympathy

Good Morning everyone, Its been a while since I've posted got the winter blues my thinking process has been foggy with all this rainy weather.  Well I'm back and ready to share some new ideas that I've had.  Sympathy cards are very hard for me to do because I don't want to put to much but I want to express my sincere feeling in a card.  So here it is a plain and simple card with a little bit of me in there.  I used nestabilities in different sizes and embossed with numerous embossing folders and distressed.  I put a simple stamp flower on top with some hemp twined around the top layer, and used three punched & embossed & distressed butterflies always in threes looks much nicer in an odd number.  I put a nice layered and distressed sympathy saying on front and there it is.  The inside has a sympathy saying   with the same flower stamp and a punched butterfly.  Butterflies to me represent something very special .  Until next time .

Fly Away Little Bird

Well another day of snow, cold, ice, and working on Cards that's the good thing about this day.  The weather is to get worse here with ice/rain, not looking forward to the ice can tolerate the snow but not the slippy stuff.  Enough about that stuff wanted to share my card that I made today.  thought it turned out okay. Just a little card with basics, loving this new paper I got at the store.  Well first layer is embossed with embossing folder, then I used the sizzix to make the next layer and it is so cute first time using this sizzix folder.  Then the best part of the whole card the bird which is another sizzix, I distressed the layers and embossed the wing and put pearls on it.  Then I used stickers and Sizzix with a little bling to finish I always use bling in my cards except for masculine cards.  Oh well until later enjoy.

Second Birdie with more bling
Just din

New Kitchen

 Finally finished our kitchen somewhat.  It took a lot of planning and hard work to coordinate all the tradesman.  I was the general contractor oh my what did I get myself into.  It went pretty well with a few bumps in the way but we managed and I understand when they say it is hard on a marriage a lot of confusion lightly said but it all turned out and I'm so thrilled.  There are a few little things to do like trim and etc.  but I have time.  The tradesman were so great, they all did a fantastic job and dealing with me I gave them all a gold star.

A thought for Spring

Oh my what a day this has been very cold and windy but no snow.  Well I thought that I would make a Spring awaiting card for this cold day to bring some sunshine into my house.  Used the new nestabilities with distressing and embossing from the Sizzix.  There are five layers with a hint of bling hope you like.  Waiting for Spring I guess we have a while yet.  Can only dream and hope that it arrives soon.  Have a glorious day.

Vintage Happy BIrthday

Hello everyone today it is so cold outside with a few flurries.  I guess winter is here we have been very lucky so far.  So I decided to stay in and make a few cards on this chilly day.  I received a few stamps from Stampin' Up! and tried them out.     I used the Sizzix to emboss the layers of the card, stamped the sentiment on and  distressed and attached rhinestones and a few pieces of bling.  There is also two layers of ribbon in the middle but it is very hard to see.  Have to keep myself busy because I started my diet today.  Oh my this is a new one for me.  To all you out there on a diet best of wishes.  It is a hard thing to do but I must stick to it so I can get down to a comfortable size for the Spring that is right around the corner.
