Happy Birthday Mom!

I just finished this card for my Mother in Law. Her birthday is next week. She is absolutely GAGA over sunflowers. I know that she will love it. Her hubs and sons want to surprise her for her big day. She is very difficult to pull one over on. Best of luck Boys in doing that.

It's Tool Time

This is my Father's day card for my DH. He is going to be working from home in the fall. So he has been working very hard in his barn setting up shop. So, He still needs a few things to get started. I thought that getting his toolbox from Sears would be a grrrrreat thing for him Hence this card. Inside is the Craftsman logo and the pcx of what he wants (don't think I'll have time for the gift card) we'll see. Maybe I can get there before FD. I made the shirt card for my Father in law. That came out very nice too. Boy does that look real.

Take a deep Breath!

One of the girls at work is having a difficult time. She is very stressed out in her job and wants to quit.

Check out this tutorial on making your own flowers. I have been going crazy with this technique. I can't wait to put these little babies on my cards... So, exciting! Beate Johns does such a great job explaining. Enjoy her video.

I have the crazy bug to make roses. I do have to make a sympathy card. Emily's teacher's husband died. They don't know why and he's so young ( in his 40's) and they have 3 kids under 10.. twins too. My heart goes out to her and her family. A card will follow... so stay tuned.


It is about that time of year for the Graduates of schools all around. My cousin is graduating from High school. Where does the time go.... Congratulations!

I took a class this week with Mitra from Impression Obsession. We worked with the background stamps. What fun did I have. I have to start looking outside the box. I really want to learn to distress and change things but still look classy. Mitra really explained that theory and made it really fun to play with her backgrounds.
