New Card

I have a co-worker that closed on her very first house today. I made this card to celebrate. Haven't found a challenge that I could submit it for but that's the reason I took photo's. I didn't have a sketch I had the sentiment in my head and remembered I had the stamp at home (Joanne's clearance for .50 cents it has a quote to go with it and a row of hearts.) Enjoy

Entered into this challenge Stampavie and More: Challenge #124

Create with Danielle (new blogger site I just found)

This site looks really interesting. Danielle shows an idea to hide your journaling and make it part of the page design. She has some ideas on other Cricut uses as well. Worth a look. Click here to visit this site

From KinderstampO's tutorial BD day 10

Jess just wanted to say thank you and Happy birthday. This is the card that I made while following you in your 3x3 note card and envelope tutorial. Since I didn't have any face stamps I changed the card a bit.
Once again you couldn't have posted that lesson at any better time for me.


Snow everywhere today. I am staying home. Lots of accidents on the highways i travel to get to work. I have seen some challenges and hops I want to check out and today is a perfect day for that. Wohoooo 11 days and I have blogged everyone of them. I am so proud of myself. Have a great day

The info reads:
We are continuing Give Away January with a Great Set of our Five new Glitter Crystals.

We will only run this Give Away for one week, so get your comments in to make sure you are in the running for this really nice set! The winner will get a package that include a generous amount of EACH of our five Glitter Crystals.

We have had these in our catalog for a while, but most people go for the more sparkly Glass Glitter, but you have to give these little Crystals a chance! Play with them, create something wonderful.

Got a blog and want to promote this give away? We'll send you a small sample to play with! Just re-post this offer on your blog this week and send me an email!

Crystals for all. And for one, a complete set! Leave your comments now to play along!

Back at work

Sigh I am back at work today, Glad I am no longer sick but sad that I can't be at home creating cards, layouts, snowmen, Christmas trees. I'll soon be home where I can play to my hearts content. Y'all have a wonderful day and keep me posted on any blog candy you find along the way today.

First attempt at Repurposing/Altering/New years resolutions

Happy Birthday

Even though I know my mom will not see this I wanted to post a Happy Birthday shout out to her today.
Bouts of normalcy vs bouts of fever have been with me since Monday.  Not a good thing but during the normal times I am putting together some card kits I had purchased long ago and found when moving stock into the craft room.  I actually added a profile picture it is of my pug Lady Lucy Lu. She is my sleeping buddy any time whether I am sick or not. We have 2 other pugs Ashur and Pugman who also don't mind sleeping at anytime day or night.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day and stays well.

As you can see I love flowers and bling. This card uses some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist to color the flowers and the base card.

January 4th
