Death of my Mom

sorry if I have not been on here for a while but my mom died and it really made me sad that she is gone to our lord .  I really do miss talking to her on the phone.. I am still thinking of making cards for the nursing home she was in as it really made the people happy.


on  another note also randy had an accident which caused his left arm to be in a cast and his right leg to have surgery on or he would have lost  the leg. they removed pockets of blood from his right knee.  his brother took a pic of it before surgery and lets say if you have a weak stomache then you would not want to see it. that bad. after he got out of the hospital he  went to rehab and he was home for just today and he was walking with a cane but at certain times he still needed his walker. he is doing very well.  the more he walks the more he will get better..

so I have started a layout of my aunt  who died also. almost finished with it. a couple to make now for  swaps since i can get back into thinking again.

I will start posting again here soon the cards and layouts I do. it has just been rough.

oh  yes, I have now been told I am legally blind and my hearing got worse also.

St. Patrick's Day Cards

 this are but 2 of the 28-30 I am  making for the nursing home my mom resides in.  they really enjoy receiving  they do not get cards alot of them so I am making sure I can do my part.  the stamps are from stampin up, the  half back pearls are from amazon which my husband  bought for me since I needed alot.  the embossing folder is also from stampin up as with the ink used. I used red liner tape on the ribbon as the glue dots didn't work to well.  the red liner did. :)  love that red liner tape..

Black and White Tag with 1 accent color

this I made for a swap I am in using black and white and 1 accent color. the hearts I traced by hand and cut out by hand also. then i put them thru the embossing folder. I used mini rhinestones in each heart. this is my best tag yet I made.

Spring Card

here I made my first spring card using  a stamp from TAC which is no longer.  the ribbon is from stamping up as is the  saying. papers is what i had here. corner rounder used is from Fiskars.

whats been happening

here is the scoop why i didn't post for december.  during that time I was in the middle of  organizing m,y craft room. going thru everything.   then i re-arranged 3 pieces of furniture. 2 bookcases and my table.   a friend help me to moved those and he even  fixed it so no cords are in the middle of the floor so i do not trip, since I am going blind. just getting used to where everything is at the moment.  :)  I am sure you all know what that is like. then I had to get ready for inspection. so that made me not post anything for january either, so I was super busy doing all this. that is what I was doing.
