Castle Birthday Card

Made this card for my GD's 7th birthday. I put a picture of her in a gown costume inside the front doors. When she opened the doors up she said "was I there when you bought the card?". We laughed so hard.  I haven't made many shaped cards so far but they are fun to do. Hope you try one if you have stayed away from them! I use Make the Cut software for most of my card crafting. It's a fantastic program, please check it out if you don't have it.

Lucy Loves the Snow!

My little Lucy loves the snow! She was born a year ago in december but this is really her first fun filled winter in the snow! She thinks she is a snow plow the way she puts her face down in it and just pushes herself along. Love this picture of her!

Latest Card

Just made this card yesterday and love it. Love the soft feminine feel of it! It's going to a young lady that is having surger. Hope she likes it!

Cancer Update!

Finished my 4 weeks of chemo and I am officially still in remission! YEAH! Feeling good but get tired very easily still. That will take some time to get back to normal, if ever. I am so thankfull to be done with treatment and able to get back to living my life chemo free.  Will have my first chemo free scan in May and hopefully it will continue to be cancer free.

Rolled Rose Flowers

I LOVE paper flowers and keep trying new ideas on the internet. I cut my own spiral for these in different sized and spiral widths. I use a double pointed knitting needle with a little double sided tape on the tip to roll them, works great. I smash (very technical term) some of them down after I roll them then use diamond glaze dabbed (another very technical term) here and there. Lastly, I drag them through my glitter and let them dry. The leaves are cut from a file I have in Make The Cut. I like to give them some texture with my stylus or a crochet hook. I also added some branch cuts from a Martha Stewart punch.  Think they came out pretty! Also used stickles on one of them. If you haven't tried them yet you should give it a go, very easy and so pretty on a card or scrap page!

Mr. Hotstuff!

Want to share this page layout with everyone. Isn't he adorable!!! I will use this for my grandson, Dalton. I have some pictures of him in his pool last summer and one will go on this page. Dalton even looks like this fella. I got this cut file from Beanie. You can get to her blog here: http://beanies-tag-your-it.blogspot.com/
She has wonderful cut files to share.
