Butterfly Butterfly

Yesterday I made a few butterflys and used them on a couple cards. The Butterflys were sponged with two colors and then clear embossed. Stamped butterflies are from Martha Stewart.

MCE-July 4th Outhouse

UPDATED!! It is MCE time (Monthly Card Exchange). This time you had to use red/white/blue or a 4th of July card. I used both. I love this image of the Patriot Outhouse with the door painted as a flag. The Patriotic Outhouse has a star for the window so I used a Star Bling cover it it.
This card is a card that I received back and it was made by Darlene. I am so impressed with the way Darlene thinks "outside the box"!!! I always put my main image on the outside and when you open the card, my handwritten and stamped words are on the inside left. Darlene put the main image on the inside left and wrote on the right!!! I love this card. Thank you so much Darlene!!
Oh by the way.....the images are now clickable to open the photo larger. I am so happy it is back! It was really annoying before lol.


Here is my father-in-law's card that I made at a Stamping Up Stamp Camp. It is all Stamping Up products right down to the ribbon. To make the clouds, I used a piece of paper towel that I ripped.
To all fathers...I hope you have a wonderful "par-fect" day!!!

Thanks for "Owl" you did

This is a card I made for someone who was leaving the office. She was such a huge help to all of us and we will miss her a great deal! She likes owls so this stamp worked out great for her!

Leafing Dress

I really wanted to show you this card and when I lost everything, I was so upset because I had sent it off to someone already. Thank goodness I found an old email where I had sent a photo of it to someone! Do you remember this Card? This is the same stamp just a different look! Be on the lookout for a tutorial on how I made the dress tomorrow.

Too Many Glitches

Sorry I have been away for so long! My computer died and my husband had to work on it. I was able to salvage many of my files beforehand onto DVD's. Now it is up and running and I went to get my info and Cards off the DVD's and guess what? The DVD now has a glitch!!! All my work...GONE....
Bare with me while I sob in the corner and get myself under control....
