Oh my - way over a year since I posted anything. Shame on me. Brand New Year 2013. maybe I will do better this year, but no promises. LOL
  I went "shopping" at Viva Las Vegastamps & whoo-whee - they have awesome stamps in their store. Anyway...    give them a visit.

This first card was for my granddaughter. It's a CloseToMyHeart stamp.

          just a simple card but I love the colors:

now I remember why I don't like to post pictures of my cards cause I can't remember
to give credit to what products I used most of the time. Oh well.... until next time....

Christmas cards-2011

Christmas cards I made for this year:
Can't remember the cardstock I used;
this first card: snowflake embossing folder; cardinal cut from 50 states using the cricut

this card was a total "case" from Archivers:
copic markers-red; green; gold stickles; gold leafing pen;
cuttlebug & die; stamps from Archivers

this card is almost a repeat of # 1- "Glory to God..." stamp is from C.T.M.H.

this shaker card is from a class that Tammy at Toyrifix taught: sooo much fun!!!!

"Merry Christmas" stamp from C.T.M.H. ; wreath.birds.bow cut
using cricut & Martha Stewart seasonal cake cart.

Believe & Santa stamp I think came from Archivers

this was soooooo much fun to make: everything belongs to Tim Holtz...
the background is a stamp with matching embossing folder- so cool!!!
I used Distress stains to color the stamp. I forgot the "red berries"
on my holly on the lamp post, but still like the way it turned out.

Hope you enjoyed looking....

untill the next time...... thank you....

I was chatting with a good friend of mine & told her that I needed to make a few cards for some other friends of mine, but
I just didn't feel like it. Well, she told me to get off FaceBook - get busy & meet her back on FaceBook in a few hours to
post my cards.


I got a little side tracked....


I did get a few simple cards done & loaded.
I have had the Cricut Wild Card cartridge for way over a year & never really "played" with it, so thought now was as good a time as any to try it out.....and... (wowzers- you can even make the envelopes to match the cards. I didn't take a picture of that, but this first cards envelope is cute)..... thinking I will use it more....
page 56...outside of card
cut at 5"

page 52 - cut at 4 3/4"

page 55 cut at 5"

Hope you enjoyed looking & have a great day.
Thanks Betsy for getting me "moving".
Untill another time.....

I went to TroyOh. the first wk. in Aug to visit a good friend of mine. While there another good friend of ours came,
and showed us how to create a triangle card - diorama card & a stair-step card. All 3 were fun to do & make. I forgot to take a picture of the triangle card.
I have made a diorama card before, but the one Hewitt showed us was a lot more fun & seemed to be easier for me to make. Here is the "outside":

the "inside" - has a greeting that didn't show up in the picture:

I think this stair-step card turned out cute:

Thanks Hewitt for a fun-filled day.

Hope you enjoyed looking & untill the next time.......
