Laughing Lola birthday card & blog hop!!!
So I needed to make something for my very first blog hop!  The CTMH (Close To My Heart) Obsessed Scrappers blog hop included the challenge to select a sketch from one of two sites & use it as the inspiration.  I chose sketch #95. There are several cards I need to make, but I didn’t want it to be a card for someone who might see it o [...]

Sympathy card

Sympathy card
  The card base was from DCWV Chateau Lavender Stack. The green die cut was made with the Anna Griffin Cuttlebug Flower Bramble die. The sentiment embellishment was cut with the Cricut Explore, Anna Griffin Summer Soirees cartridge & stamped with an Anna Griffin stamp using white ink. The three butterflies on the front are [...]

My Mother’s birthday luncheon 2014
As some of you know, my mother passed away in 2012 a couple of months shy of her 95th birthday. In an effort to not be sad on that day, I decided to start a new tradition of having a girls luncheon celebrating my mother’s birthday every year. I do it up all girly, use my wedding china & crystal & we have a great time. Since this [...]

20th Anniversary card
A good friend & her husband recently celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary. The photo above doesn’t do the front of the card justice because you can’t see the shimmery paper, embossing or glitter paper. So below is a scan that shows those details. However, you still don’t get the look & feel of the shiny, gol [...]

Graduation card – Arizona State!
A friend’s son graduated from Arizona State this year. Here’s the card I made for him, using the ASU colors (go Sun Devils!) This was the first time using the pen option on the Cricut Explore & I only used it for the “Nice Hat!” sentiment on the front. And, I did this at the last minute, so didn’t note al [...]

Belated Birthday card for my sister

Belated Birthday card for my sister
This card took two or three pages (I forget) of Close To My Heart Skylark paper.  It’s not one of my favorites, but I had a few of them & since I thought my sister may like it, I didn’t mind using the two (or three, I forget) sheets necessary to make this card.  I do think it turned out quite nice. I also used two [...]

Tissue box covers & rolled/quill...

IMG_0569
I like these as small gifts.  Something you can give someone & they won’t feel obligated to give something in return.  Plus, it’s something if they don’t like, they can always re-gift it. This is the most recent one.  The flower on the front is the first rolled/quilled flower, I’ve done.  They look a bit complicate [...]
