One of the many things I've learned in card making is that when you goof up a card it is often an opportunity to embellish. This card is an example. I had this card all done and as I stamped the sentiment it was crooked. Darn! So I covered it up with ribbon then deliberately stamped the sentiment crooked. All of the elements for this card are from Gina K Designs. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Art Impression came out with these really neat sets called Try'folds. The idea is that you make a card that folds in 3's, trim around the images and each layer shows a part of the picture. When I watched the video showing how to make one I fell flat in love with the idea. So of course I ordered three of the sets. So far I've only made one card and it was for my friend form high school Marti, for her birthday in January. I used Gina K's 120 lb. card stock since I can color with Copics with no bleed through. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.

Since it's still March I thought I would share my St. Patrick's Day cards. I chose two designs to do, one for the people I mail to for my Card Ministry group and the other for friends and family. After I had them done and mailed I realized I should have reversed who I sent them out to, but I'll let you be the judge. One card is very simple just a green card base with a small jar (Stamps by Judith) with 4 leaf clovers in it (Gina K designs) and sentiment Best of Luck (the name of the stamp set). The other is a white card base with an Irish Blessing on white card stock and matted with green. I have no idea where the stamp comes from, I think I picked up years ago at the Novi stamp show. Hope you like them and thanks for stopping by.

Well, when I decided to get busy posting I didn't take into account how many decisions I would have to make. Which card to do next, so I'll just go back and forward in time. We had to put our dog Eddie to sleep a couple of weeks before Christmas and that was a hard thing to do. We are so lucky with our Veterinarian that I wanted to make some special cards for her. The Come All Ye Faithful set from Papertrey Ink was the perfect set for me to use. This set is dog images, accessories for the dogs and

Hi All, I'm back! When my cousin Mary told me I hadn't posted anything since September I was shocked. I have been busy but that is crazy. When I looked at my cards to be posted photo file I found over 150 cards waiting to be edited and posted. I've been making them just not sharing them, so I'm going to get to work. I decided to star with the latest card I made 'Party On'. I used a set from the Journey of the Heart Stamp TV kit's Party On, from Gina K designs. Sharon Harnist did a video on Stamp TV on coloring balloons and transparent items with Copics. So I made this card. all of the stamps, card stock, DP inks are Gina K's. Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
