Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other craft projects. Might even share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Single Tulip

The SCS color challenge this week was called Basically Limeade Parade using the following:
Paper: Lucky Limeade, Poppy Parade, Basic Black, Whisper White. I used two embossing folders that were requested for the desert on the card. The white square was daubed with basic black and smeared over the swirls for some depth. I then used the Build a Flower Punch and the Bird Punch to make my tulips using the scraps I trimmed from the green background for the greenery. Added some white pearls and the Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon. Did not add a sentiment yet because I am not sure what I will use the card for yet.

My Christmas Gift!!

To 4 of my scrapbookking friends was a card making day.  Every year 5 of us exchange birthday/Christmas gifts in De4c and was at a loss as to what to give this year so I made little gift card holders (which I did not scan and keep one) with a certificate in them for a 10 cards/project day at my house.  We met this past Monday on MLK as I had a day off school. We made the following projects: I will detail any card anyone want me to but they were mostly all cased from card makers at Splitcoatstampers.com, my favorite scrap booking outlet.
This card is my January Christmas cards all Year entry so still have 8 more to make.

Had a little bit of a problem getting this die to cut all the way through the paper. Used scissors to cut lots of the spots out. Any ideas??

Quick and simple but very elegants

One gal does not like pink so loved this in the Calypso Coral color

The sketch and color challenge for the week of Jan 9th

Love this vintage set and the colors used here.

My version of the Framelits cut out before I had the die to use.

Love this triple punch and the punch flowers. Was a favorite of all
A little treat for my sweetheart that had to put up with all 5 of us

Another favorite of all the gals.  I think this one will get cased again for some birthdays.

I tried to do a variety of stamps, cards and techniques in order to keep it interesting. Most of these cards used stamp sets, etc from the newest Occasions Mini Catalog and a few from the Sale-A-Bration flyer.  They were all really pleased with the cards. I even have one gal that does not like to stamp a lot but she enjoyed herself doing this.  Said she would come again but she really does not like to order stamp.  She scrapbooks all the time with us and loves cards I make for her.
