Saturday, July 14, 2012It has been a busy week, but I did get to finish up a couple of projects. Mostly at the Thursday card get together.
The card that I am posting today is called "Wonder and Joy". It reminds me of when I was a child and I was always doing something that my mother, who was city raised, thought was icky. But, I thought it was great fun.
So here is the card, and you will see what I was into;
"Wonder and Joy"
Have a GREAT DAY!!!!
Wednesday, July 4, 20012I hope everyone is enjoying thier 4th of July. I surpose to be in the high 90's today, so I believe most of our activities will be inside. Not that I'm against doing a little BarBQ ing.
Todays card is one that we made at our monthly club meeting.
I made a birthday card because everyone needs Birthday cards.Seeing that I'm always late sending out cards, I thought this sentiment was appropriate. And here is your look at the card.
"Product Review of The EK Success 2 in 1 Punch"
"EK Success 2 in 1 Punch"
Friday, June 15, 2012I Know, I Know. I have been away along time. I just went into a funk and my creativity went away. Probably to many other interests. But, I;m finally getting my mojo back.
The first card I'm posting is from a stamp set from "Close to my Heart" called "Friendship Bouquet" # S1205. It was a STOM for the month of May 2012.
Without further delay here is the card for today;
"Plant a Seed"

Todays card is something different for me. All of my regular cards are usually colored images, but todays card is made using my Cricut Imagine. Yes that's right my Cricut Imagine.
I will call the card a "Thank You Tree"
This is the first time that I have made an entire card with nothing but my Cricut Imagine. One advantage for using the Imagine is that you can use the RGB codes from any paper and duplicate it on the Imagine. Plus, you can match the cardstock colors for most companies such as "Stamp'nUp" or "Close to My Heart". That's a big advantage in card making.
I used one cartridge to make this card called "Ultimate Creative Sampler". This cartridge comes with six different overlay mats. That's alot of images.
The card body was embossed using a Sizzix Embossing Folder then sanded lightly.
Hope you enjoy todays card and will leave a comment.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!

I spent the weekend helping a friend build a new pole barn for all of the equipment he has. Tractors, boats and associated pieces. I love doing this type of work and look forward to it. But, because of my bad knee, I don't do as much of it as I would like.
The card that I am posting today is a card that I made Friday. For this card I used a stamp set from "Close to My Heart" and it is called "The Present" # D1436 and sells for $17.95. Very cute set and I use it quite often. Here is the card;
I used a Quik-Kutz die to cut out the swirls on the top and bottom of the card on a matching pink card stock. I then added the "Liquid Pearl" dots to the corners of the card.

Well it has been a long two months. I can't realy say why I have been so busy, or should I say distracted. But, I have been.
The card and instructions that I have posted today I saw originally on SplitCoast Stampers that was presented by Monique Trappeniers. It took me awhile to get the card right, but I finaly accomplished. So, thanks SplitCoast Stamper and Monique Trappeniers for the inspiration.
The card is appropriately calle a "Six-Fold Card", and you card see why from the pictures.
I used this on in a card class that we had last week. Here is what the card looks like when it is opended. Count the folds to see where it gets it's name
The card is simply to make once you get the folding and cutting down. The main body of the card is an 8"X12" piece of card stock. The piece of cardstock is scored at 4" and 8" along the 12" side.
Then score the 6" side at 2" and 6".The remaining step is to cut the card out using the score lines. I have inserted a diagram of the cutting sequence below.
Keep your piece of cardstock in the same orientation as the picture above and you should not have any trouble getting it right.
Once you are done cutting and folding the card, the fun is in the decoration of the card it's self.
Give this card a try, you will love the results.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
