46th Wedding Anniversary!

Better late than never, right?  My parents 46th wedding Anniversary was this past Monday, and I am just got around to making and finishing it! I know, I know, I am a "bad" daughter. I just could not come up with a card for them, It is nothing to elaborate, but I am pleased with it. My mom was so disappointed that she had yet to receive a "handmade card" from me, that she called me to tell me that nothing had come in the mail yet. Hahaha, talk about spoiled!  Well, my hubby drives past their home every morning @ the plan is for him to put it in their mailbox. Hey, at least it will have come to them from their mailbox...right???  I know that it is very rare these days for a marriage to last that long, but with God in their lives as a huge focal point that is where they have their success.  They are wonderful parents, and I love them very much!

I Used:
Kate's ABC's Cartridge:   for the "smashed" flowers
Blackletter Cartridge:  for the numbers
Nestabilities Lacy Squares
DCWV The Linen Closet Stack paper
Brown Ribbon from Michael's
Martha Stewart Edge Punch
Square rhinestone brads from my stash

I hope that you are having a great day!

Feel Better Soon!

Hello again! Ohhh, how I hate having to make so many "get well" cards. I don't like it when people I know and care about are sick. Anyways,I made this card for my poor neighbor who is sick. The Dr.s said he may have an inner ear infection but are doing other tests to rule out a tumor or a stroke. He is a little frustrated because he is not recovering as fast as he thinks he should.  So my husband thought that maybe a little card from my craft corner would brighten his day.  Sometimes, just knowing that others are thinking and praying for  you helps you to get through things a little easier. Anyways,I know that you can't really see it but the striped paper has a little sparkle on it.  Also, this is my first time doing the "masking" technique. 

I used:
Gypsy Wanderings Cartridge: for the coffee cup and the muffin
DCWV The Linen Closet stack paper, from Hobby Lobby on clearance
Brown card stock
Cuttlebug folder from Preserves
Brown Ribbon from Michael's
Flower brad from my stash
The Sentiment is Computer Generated

Well, I hope you all are staying healthy and are having a great day!  Thank you so much for taking a look!

What am I up to, now?

Well, it is that time of year again for the,"Thanksgiving/Christmas craft".  Every year on Thanksgiving day my Mom's family gets together and celebrates Thanksgiving, over a nice large meal.  Then when all the dishes are done and put away us "girls" get together and exchange a craft/ornament of some kind, that we made.  I usually have to make appoximately 30.  From one year to the next, we could have as few as 20, and the next year about 30.  It is alot of fun to give and to recieve, and to see what they come up with every year.  No, it does not have to be a Christmas ornament or anything Christmas, just a craft.  I enjoy making a variety, so no two are exaclty alike.  Well, this is just a teaser of what I am up to...I will post pictures of the complete project when Thanksgiving is closer or when I have finally perfected my project!  I am already having fun doing this...I may have found another "hobby" that I may enjoy!  What is one more anyways?  So see if you can guess what I am up to now!!! 

Thanks for taking a peek at what I am up to, and guessing!  I hope you have a great day!
