A blast from your past!

Hi Everyone.    I know I have not been around much at all.  Not that I didn't miss everyone, I just got a new toy and it has been taking more time and attention than my card making.
  I bought an embroidery/sewing machine and have been learning so much.  I do want to post my new business card/tag since I did make it using my card making supplies.
I will be posting pics of some of my customized pillows, shirts, towels, bags, etc.  I am also going to start a new blog page and I do want to invite you all.  If  you can offer any suggestions or other related blogs to follow, I would be grateful.
  Thanks everyone! 
I will also be selling a LOT of card making supplies.  Including a cricut imagine that I never used.  Lots of Kraftin Kimmie stamps, dies, copic markers, stamps, inks, etc.  Please pass it along to anyone who might be interested.

I mustache you

This is a get well card I made for a friend/client.  He once grew a mustach that was not necessarily flattering and I teased him about it.  It really cheered him up.

I kept it clean and simple and just used an inkadinkadoo stamp and a sentiment I found on a google search.  I cut the frames with nestabilities and added some googly eyes that I had in my stash.  
The inside sentiment was also found on google.

Let your hair down

This is a birthday card for a client/friend.  I used a Kraftin Kimmie  Stamp and colored her with copics and pro markers.  The frame behind was die cut with a nestabilities and cuttlebug.  Flowers, ribbon and bling were from my stash.

He put a ring on it!

This time, I used my cricut Imagine machine.  I tried to hook up to the craft room, but still not successful yet.  I do enjoy using it, but there is an upward learning curve I've yet to master.  Having fun trying though.
I made this Engagement/Birthday card for my cousin, who is a self proclaimed "shoe slut" -  like me.  
Her fiance bought her a pair of coveted shoes AND an engagement ring for her birthday.
I used the Weddings cartridge.  A Darice embossing folder was used for the background.  I added some stiching.  She loves ankle straps so, I used a ribbon and some bling from my stash.

You're Purrfect!

While I was away on my cruise, I hired my salon neighbor, who owns a pet grooming shop, to come everyday to look after our cat.
This is a thank you card for her.
I used an "inkadinkadoo" stamp set-  all about cats, and heat embossed with Martha Stewart pink embossing powder... The papers and card stock are from K and Company the ribbons, roses and bling are from my stash.

Happy Anniversary

I finally finished organizing and setting up a craft studio.  Now I am able to use my long neglected, cricut machines.  
This is an anniversary, easel,  card I made for my brother and sister-in-law.  I used the Weddings cartridge to make the bride and groom silhouette.  The papers and embellishments are from my stash.  I used my heat embossing tool and silver embossing powders for the sentiments.

Have a Happy Day

I am really loving my Stampin Up dress up framelits die.  I do find though, that the dress form stand is a bit short making the dresses look a bit frumpy.  So, I cut a little piece to add a little lenght to the pole holding the dress form. 
  I used the cuttlebug and swiss dots folder for the background frame.  The papers are all scraps that I had in my stash. I added a few pearls ( a favorite embellishment)  at the neckline and cut out the shoes from a card that was sent to me. (love to use up everything)  The "happy day" banner was from a chip board set I had in my stash.  I sent this to my Mother in law as a "just because/get well"

Queen of all Moms

Since I was away on a glorious, 7-day cruise on a fantastic ship called Oasis of the Seas; I am a little late with my Mother's day card.

I found this image on a Google search and printed it on a high quality card stock and added some rhinestones in the crown ,(my favorite embellishment),  ribbon and a Martha Stewart punch border.

Highland Fling!

This "just because" card is for my 89 year old Mother who is my Angel on Earth.  She is the kindest, most considerate, dedicated, unselfish person I have ever known.  She had eight children and has many grandchildren and great grandchildren and everyone of us are constantly humbled and awestruck at  her kindness.
Her Parents came from Scotland and Ireland and she was the first one born in America in 1926.  She also had 6 siblings.
  I found this sweet little Lassie (could have been a Laddie, I added a bit more hair) on one of the free digi sites or doing a google search.
  I colored with copics and pro markers.  Used my cuttlebug for the embossed background frame and added flowers and leaves from my stash.
