Flowers for Your Birthday

Long ago someone stamped an image for me and mailed it to me.  I finally colored the image and made a card with it.  I wish I had this stamp besides the fact that I am addicted to flowers but also because I can see lots of uses for it! 

After coloring the images, I used sponge to sponge some ink around the flowers


Internet is Back...AGAIN..

I think that I am back for real!
I thought I lasted just a very short time.

Apparently the internet company (who shall be nameless *S*) kept telling us it was our modem.  We spent $130 for a new one and internet lasted just a few short hours.  We went down completely and this time it affected many people.  Apparently they had a piece of equipment going down and we were feeling the affects of it.  It took them a couple of days to get it fixed.  Since back online yesterday, we have not had any problems...*knocking hard on wood*

Internet Is back!! Fathers Day Card feels good to be back!  Not having internet for so long almost killed me but I was able to keep my sanity by reading emails and responding by cellphone. lol
Cable company came out finally after much frustration only to discover it was our modem.  New one was bought last night and I am back online!!

I had forgotten to show you what I made my Father-in-law for fathers day this year!  This man lives for "fixing things".  He is like the tool time guy on TV.  He has a can opener he "tweaked".  I refuse to be in the same room when he pulls that out to use.  It has more power..yes..I do give him that!!!  Too much power!  When you put a can on it...step back!!!  That thing zings so fast around the can and the only way to shut it off is to yank the cord out of the  wall.  
My cards to him normally have something to do with fixing things.

This was his card.  Inspiration came from the net and I wish I remember where I got the idea from.  (If your out there...let me know!)  
This card could be used for any occasion for a man.  

Have a super day!!  See you soon

Toy Story Birthday Party 2013

I just recently returned from a 2 wk vacation to NH and MA to visit my family.  2 weeks prior to leaving, I made decorations for my granddaughter (3) and grandson's (1) combined Toy Story themed birthday party.  I wanted to share what I made....all done with the Cricut.  The largest images are about 11-12" high.  The banner was created to hang along their big fence but due to a major rain storm, we had to find a new place for the long banner to hang. Buzz was about 12" x 12" and was made to look like he was flying in the sky and pulling the banner.

Happy 4th of July!

I used the spotlight technique on this card.  Sometimes it is good to go back and use the basics I learned many years ago when I first began.  The letters were stamped using the old fashion wheel where you move the rubber around until the letters you need are all at the top.  

I got a new camera a few months ago and I noticed it had a setting on it just for fireworks.  I figured tonight was my only chance to use it for a whole year so I went out and found a couple to take from neighbors shooting fireworks off.  
Not to shabby!!!  
Happy 4th Everyone!

Birthday and 4th Celebration Card

Happy 4th of July Everyone!!

I just returned from a 2 week vacation by myself to see my family.  I had the best time ever!!
Before I left, I made a card for a friend/co-worker who's birthday is today but unfortunately I took a picture of it before I added more to it and finished it.  I left it for someone to give to her for me since I would be gone and forgot to take the final product.  Just imagine a small Happy Birthday white tag with blue border handing off with red and blue ribbon!
Happy Birthday Diana!
