Flowers for the Tag Bag

Hello All,

I made these flowers for the Tag Bag Swap at Your Paper Pantry.  We had to make three groups of three flowers for tag embellishments.  I think mine are little big but oh well.....

Happy Birthday, Gramps

Hi Y'all,

     Tomorrow is Gramps' birthday...my father-in-law....  He's is a very nice man who collects clocks and loves my cats so in my book he's good!!!!

I made a card for him that I hope he likes.

I used the Tattered Angels Clock stamp and Glitter Screen along with glimmer mist on a chipboard background.  The design paper is DCWV Mariposa collection.  Base is craft.  The sentiment is Inkadinkadoo and the kitty paper clip is from Staples...I used my new Making Memories paper and ribbon slot punching tool to punch the holes for the black ribbon from my stash.  The embellishment is an old earring from one of  my thrift store hauls.

Come back and visit soon.....

Flower Jars on the Sill

Hello Friends and Family,

I have another card for you today...I used the honkin' big Accu-Cut machine at my LSS to cut out the card base with the window/shutter opening.  Stamped the image a few times, colored with Copics and  paper pieced the jars and  popped them up on pop dots.  I "built the shelf with two pieces of paper one for the base the the other mitered on the edges and distressed with mahogany colored distress ink...(I forget the actual name of the ink color)... When I folded the shelf in half I used my finger to color the front edge of the shelf with distress ink.
Haven't added a sentiment because I don't know what I'm going to use the card for.....
Thanks again so much for your comments and your visits to my blog......

Sending Happy Thoughts


Hello Friends,
I had this idea rolling around in my head for while.  Finally made the card at the Copic Play Day at Stamps and More By Eleanor in Powdersville, SC last week.
If anyone is interested in the ingredients...let me know...otherwise I'll just post the pictures...
This is a tag card made from one 12x12 sheet of paper.
