Cupcake Card.


It's me.  If you're still here...thank you for hanging in.
I've been wanting to get back into making cards, it seems to be a slow process.
So I thought I'd just go with the flow...no pressure...whatever happens...happens. 

And so, this little cutie happened.  The background is from a Project Life pack. I'm not doing Project Life...I just liked this pack.  And it happens to be perfect for cards.
The cupcake is from Michaels, the embossing folder is 'Dainty' by  Lifestyle Arts.  I cut the first circle with Spellbinder's Nestabilities, but then didn't have a coordinating size I liked.  So I fired up the Silhouette and cut one that is the perfect size.  Still learning about the Silhouette, but liking it so far.
So there you go...a simple card...

See you soon.

Hello again,
These fabulous Penny Black stickers landed in my mailbox last week courtesy of my wonderful friend Barb.  I love Penny Black stickers, they are always so beautiful with such great detail.

 Background embossing folder is from Anna Griffin, stamp is from Stampendous, die cut Lacy Squares from Spellbinder's Nestabilities.
Here's the inside.  Sentiment and tag cut with the Cameo Silhouette.  Loving the Silhouette more each time I use it.

Thanks for dropping by,

Bridal Shower and 90th Birthday.

I've  now had my Cameo Silhouette for probably 2 years.  I think I wasn't ready for it when I got it.  But I've spent the day getting a little more familiar with it and I have to say, I think this might be the start of something wonderful. 

I'm quite thrilled with how the background and sentiment turned out.  Love the gold accents. 

Love this sentiment too.  Both are from the Silhouette store.

That's it...as always thanks for dropping by,

Happy Mother's Day Card

With a little help from my friends...and YouTube.  :)
Yes, sometimes it takes a village.  

I signed up for the SU Paper Pumpkin kit a couple of months ago and got to pick a Sale-a-bration stamp set with my order.  The What I Love set is beautiful and I loved creating with it.
I got a lot of help from this YouTube video and a kick in the but to get going from my friend Barb.
The Mother's Day stamp is from the April Paper Pumpkin kit.

Hopefully, this is the start of something...

Happy Birthday

Hello there.
Here's a quick card I made for my daughter's 20th birthday a few weeks ago.  I still have a hard time believing that my baby is 20.  Time has just flown. 
The background is painted with SU ink pads and water pen brush.  The images are from Autumn Leaves and the sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

Thanks for dropping by.
