Hello, hello, hello...

I love small cardmaking forums where you can get to know each other, chat, challenge and swap if you'd like to.  There was a wonderful group over at the CardMaker magazine site but that closed down last year.  That didn't stop the wonderful group over there.  They started a new group called ScrapZee.   

Last year they started a Birthday club where everyone sends a card on your birthday.  The most wonderful thing is getting a mailbox full of beautiful cards when it's your birthday.  During the summer, I fell off the list for a while and I've felt bad about it ever since.  So I made a bunch of 'Hello' cards to send out to the members whose birthday I missed.
Here are a few of them.  The Hello is from Hampton Art Stamps.

Happy Sunday.

Two Quick Cards...

I'm still digging through my scraps and long forgotten supplies.  Both the sticker in the first card and the image in the second have been in my scrap pile for years.  Probably longer than 5 years.

Nice to finally use them.  And how cute is that dog bone button?!  I wish I knew who made it.  I would love to have more.

Thanks for dropping by.  Wishing you a happy Monday tomorrow.  :)

The Rose

I found a new (to me) challenge site.  Fusion Card Challenge.  So fun to see new ways to challenge ourselves.  Here is this week's challenge. 

 Here's my card using the photo as inspiration.
Sadly, this is one of the few PSX rose stickers I have left.  I had been hoarding these for years, they are so gorgeous.  The typed paper is from Stampin' UP!, the embossing folder is Acanthus from Anna Griffin, ribbon is from Offray, sentiment stamp and heart die are from PTI and the sentiment tag is a punch from EK Success.
This reminds me of...The Rose.  Yes, I'm that old!! :)
Thanks for dropping by.

Hello...'s been a while.
I used to wonder what happened when my favorite bloggers stopped blogging. 
Now I know. 
Life happens. 
A new job, busy schedules, vacations, different
So, I've been trying to ease back into cardmakeing, but it's been a little tough.  It just doesn't flow as well as when you are not in the 'thick of it'.
So today, I dumped out my scraps and leftovers container.  And here is the result. 
All cards were made from scraps and leftovers from other projects.  


These cards will not win blog challenges, or world cardmaking day contests...but it feels pretty good to be back!
Hope to see you soon,
