Here is a card I made for my Mamma for Mother's Day. All paper came from Michaels. "Mom" is cut from Sizzix Bloom alphabet. "Happy Mother's Day" is Stampin Up MOTHER'S LOVE as well as quote on inside of card. Swag on inside of card and corner stamp is
Stampin Up PRECIOUS AND FEW. Outside of card I printed on computer.

Created an envelope to custome fit the card and added dew drops to

Beloved Merlin

Merlin was one of our favorite friends to look after. He lived with a client of ours along with a canine & feline brother. He had about 3 more years with his family then what the vet originally gave him. He was such a good dog. Merlin recently went to Doggie Heaven where he is all better now. I created this memory frame for his family.


Graduation theme card done on DCWV papers. I love this green! Graduation cap stamp is from Stampin Up "Little Layers, Plus". Stamped verse is Stampin Up "Happy Occasions". Ribbon is Stampin Up and of course.... some dew drops on side.


This one was done from paper that also came from Michaels, only store around that has large selection of paper. It is a paisley background and is also 2 sided. The green on the front is also the same color on inside. I used the Cuttlebug Paisley
die which kinda takes some time to put together I think. Maybe I just need a new method. "Friends" is from Sizzix die. All the paisley shapes were cut from a coordinating sheet. The quote on inside I printed from computer.


Did a "Friendship Quote" swap earlier this month. This is what I came up with for the first card. Background paper was from Michaels but not sure on brand. All cardstock is Brazzill. Swiss dots emboss background and flowers are from a Cuttlebug die set. "Thinking of You" is Sizzix.
Inside has same background paper with quote framed by the same Brazzill as on the front. The quote is from a vellum paper, also from Michaels.

Fairy Card

Here is that pretty flower paper I love but can't remember where it came from. I believe I bought it at Michaels and they don't have it anymore, :( I stamped the fairy, which is Inkadinkado, onto DCWV paper and the red strip on side is also DCWV. Colored her in a bit and added, my favorite, dew drops.

More ATC's

Just don't understand why these keep uploading rotated? Anyway......The Sparkle card was created

with a piece of cardstock from the Spring DCWV stack. I added some rhinestones on the corners and a tag created from Cuttlebug die which I attached with a piece of ribbon on back and pop-dots.
The Seasons card had Cuttlebug embossed background paper and stamped with Stampin Up "Suitable For Framing".
Bird theme card is my favorite. Inside the frame is Cuttlebug embossed cardstock and the frame is from an "I can't remember" sheet of cardstock. Isn't it pretty? Cut the inside of frame with a Spellbinder die and the inside has birds stamped from Stampin Up "Love Ya Bunches".
All the cards have a chipboard base.

ATC share

A couple more ATC's I created. Beach- used sand at bottom along with tiny seashells, some Stickopotamus beach stickers and Cuttlebug tag. Background is embossed with wave templete that I believe is a fiskar plate.
The Black & White theme is layered and the flowers are an embossing Cuttlebug folder. Placed dew drops in center of flowers.
Fashion theme was a graphic I printed out twice. I cut out the gloves to make them 3d. Only colored here and there and then added a epoxy sticker on top.

Mother's Day cards created for a monthly swap. All DCWV paper. Used Martha Stewart Fence border punch on the striped paper along bottom. Sizzix tag die and Stampin Up Happy Mother's Day stamp. Flowers are Stampin Up layered stamps.


Not a very good picture of this one. Just can't always get the lighting right. Another swap card with Pink & Yellow theme. All solid colored paper is DCWV and not sure on brand of the patterned paper. Flower was created from paper punches, I love making these, and dew drop in center as well as along bottom. Thinking of you stamp is from an Inkadinkado set.


Here is a polka dot themed card I did for another swap. Paper is all DCWV. Stamping is from a Inkadinkado set, not sure of the name and they were cut out with patterned scissors with dew drops in centers. Imagine is cut from Spellbinder die and ribbon attached. All attached with pop dots.


It is a bit hard to get a good picture of these. All are done on chipboard. A patterned butterfly vellum with some punched butterflys that have been embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots and dew drops attached to the wings. Birthday themed is embossed with Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder with 3d stickers attached as well as dew drops, I love dew drops. And a purple and yellow themed card that has stamped purple paper and Cuttlebug Paisly dies, some attached with pop dots.


Here are my TinkerBell and Sophie. Tink is the oldest and the more aggressive. She will let you know when she wants affection. Sophie is very affectionate. She is my little fluff ball. When she walks, or maybe I should say woddles, she looks like a little baby skunk. Her tail is shorter then most but really fluffy. And she flutters it up in the air as she walks or even if she is standing still. Her legs are pretty short. I believe she is a munchkin cat. When she meows, you can barely hear it and she is a very loud purrer. When she is purring, she makes sounds that sound like a dove. And boy does she make lots of noise when she is sleeping. You can hear her breathing anywhere in the house. She weezes very loud. Tink is usually mean to her and will hiss and growl at her then swat her. When she does this, Sophie just rolls over on her back like the middle picture. I think she thinks Tink is playing with her. But occasionally they do play together. They will chase each other up and down the hall. Tink also likes to play fetch. Ya, just like a dog. She will bring one of her little stuffed toys over to you, you throw it down the hall and she runs after it, plays with it for a few seconds then brings it back to you to do all over again. I just love all my animals! They are great to have. Wish I had room for more.


Here is a bookmark I made for my niece, Jade, for her birthday. I had found the Swarovski Crystal Cross first and chose everything else around that. Green is not her favorite color but they didn't have pink. I had seen ribbon bookmarks with charms and beads dangling from the ends in a store and knew I could make my own. Found the end crimp pieces at Michaels as well as all the crystals. O, and that is a little "Faith" charm in the middle of the beads.


This was an animal themed card I did for a swap. I found this Endangered Species stamp on ebay and had to get it. I know it could use some color but I am just not as good at the coloring thing as most people. One of these days I would love to have the funds to invest in Copics. I believe I used all DCWV papers and the printed came from a theme pack. Used Spellbinders scallop circle and original circle, added a piece of ribbon and took shank off a button for the little monkey.
Pepper was miserable on this day. She had just been spayed and moaned all afternoon. And she would lay so her belly didn't touch the couch.
She loves to lay very close to Sabrina.

Pretty picture!

Chia. The only thing good about her not being able to hear anymore is she doesn't go nuts when it storms. Before you would hear her climbing in and out of the bathtub, under everything she could get under or just trying to break thru the bedroom door.

My Critters

Here I managed to get pic of all 3 together. Of course they are all waiting for a treat. It is so hard to get a good picture of Sabrina, black lab. She is 3 1/2 and the biggest chicken of all. The largest dog we have but she is afraid of storms and will not go outside by herself at night. Her own shadow scares her at night. But when her and Pepper wrestle, she sounds like a bear. Chia is the Keshound-13 yrs old and can't hear anymore and doesn't want bothered by the other animals. Pepper is the sissy PitBull, yes sissy. I keep telling her we need to toughen her up. She is very much a big baby and likes to be a lap dog. I rescued her in Dec of 08 and to me no one was good enough to adopt her. We fell in love with her right away and decided to keep her. When it comes to training and listening, she is the best one of the bunch. Not sure on her age, we put her at about 2. She loves everyone and will hop in any vehicle if she thinks she is going for a ride. Her and Sabrina love to wrestle. We can't let both of them outside together because they don't pay attention to what they are out there for because they just love to play together. You can also see the beautiful carpet beside her. She dug that hole shortly after I got her. She spent her alone time in a crate after that. Chia and Pepper were not here then. I got her lots of bones and squeekie toys to keep her busy after that and other then all the nail snags, no more carpet holes.
