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!

Busy little Bee

I was quite busy this 3 day weekend making 2 large card sets for Christmas gifts. Three generations of us do quilting and I saw a quilt card and was hooked. Therefore I made 2 of each of the following cards for my  mom and some other gift.  As some say I am bitten by the bug. The scanner has an issue so I could not add the other two. I got most of the patterns and tutorials from pinterest, some from Stampin Up and some on other spots. Thanks to all who have posted before me with these patterns and designs. The tutorials are all great to get started. Counting all of the cards for these sets and a few extra I made 26 cards this weekend.
