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.

Valentine Cards

I was asked to make a few valentine cards for a friends daughter. here they are.  all paper was used, ribbon, rhinestones. the only stamp I used was for the inside which says happy valentine's day, that is by stampin up which is from itty bitty words.
