New grandbaby

This has nothing to do with this blog but I had to post a pic of our new grandbaby. He is the only boy so far out of 4 grandchildren.

Christmas Cards

I made these cards for my friends at work. The 1st one I made with the Create A Critter cartridge, the 2nd was just some felt stickers and the last one is a digi stamp I got from online coloring pages then I colored it with my Copic markers.

Merry Christmas to everyone and a Happy New Year.

I made my husband a drink menu of sorts for his bar in our basement. One side of the page is a drink he makes and then on the back is a bunch of facts or trivia about football or the Dallas Cowboys. (my husbands favorite team). I laminated all the pages and then used ring clips to hold it together.

Here are some more embroidery work. I can't take credit for these though my husband did them. He used my embroidery machine and didn't need a lot of assisstance from me. I am so proud of him. Ha Ha

I was a busy girl last night. I had a little quiet me time in my office to create a few cards. I used free downloadable coloring book pages and then colored them with my copic markers. I can't believe all the cool coloring pages available online. Creating surely calms my nerves and eases my stress.

I made this for my mother using a real scrabble game and tiles. I cut the board to fit in a wooden tray I painted her favorite color. I found some wooden shapes at Michaels, layed out my words and placed the angels on the board. My mom loves to play scrabble and absolutely loved this tray.

Birthday Card

My sister loves Seahorses and since her birthday is next month I thought I would make this card. I downloaded a coloring book page, sized it in Paint and then printed out on my computer. I used my new Copic markers and colored it in. I think for my 2nd attempt at a digital stamp it turned out nice. I love how you can create shadows with these markers.

Thanks for looking and leaving comments.

Pillow boxes

These pillow boxes were made using my cricut, of course. They were Halloween treats for co-workers. The moon I got from Filled them with candy and wrapped with a little raffia and walla... neat treats.


Thought I would show you just how creative my dear hubby is. He made these from printing out a coloring book page. He traced the design on the back of the picture glass with a black paint pen and then filled in the deisgn with model paint. We put scrapbook paper ( see extra comes in handy for everyone) behind it. It has a great 3D effect.

Time to post something a little different. I printed out coloring book pages and then drew them on painted canvas. I then painted the design and outlined with black paint pen. They hang on the walls in the spare room for the grand kids. I think Eeyore is my favorite. Not to bad for hand drawn home decor. I painted the canvas with your basic acrylic paints.

Mother's Day

I made this card with my Paper pups cart. The inside said "That means Happy Mother's Day."

Card Set

This is a gift card set I made. I used my cuttlebug to do the embossing on the pink paper. I just love the way the colors came together.
The box I madewith heavy cardstock and covered with the same paper and flower designs to match the cards. I added some brown ribbon and made a bow for the front.
Let me know what you think and thanks for looking.

I made this card for my husbands co-worker. I made it with the Wild Card Cartridge and my cricut.

Snowman Card

This card was inspired by Mary at I saw her youtube video and had to try it for myself. I used a sheet of velum for the globe to give it a glass like look. A rub off transfer of a wreath completed the stand.

Christmas Card

How cute is this card? I made it with my paper pups cartridge and I embossed the bow with some fun flock to give it a velvety feel.

Christmas Card

I made this card using one of my cricut cartridges and a noel stamp I got from the crafty store in their dollar bin. SCORE!! I added some green and white striped ribbon and tied in a bow. I ran the light green layer through my cuttlebug snowflake folder.

Bunny Box

These are some little bunny boxes I made for my co-workers. My husband saw them and thought they were so cute I needed to make about 12 more for him to take to work. It truly looked like my little bunnies were multiplying all over the place. I filled them with easter grass and some bite size candies.

Card Set

This is a card set I made for a friend of mine at work. I thought the colors went well together. I set a pearl embellishment in the middle.

Glass Block

This is a glass block I made for my oldest sister for Christmas this past year. I used a vinyl saying that I got from the craft store and put it on the glass block. I filled it with metalic flaked angel hair and added a small string of lights. It looks great when it is lit.

Birthday Card

This is a card I made for my sister for her birthday. She loves Garfield. I printed the picture from a coloring book page I found online and then colored it with my Bic markers. I think it turned out pretty good for my first try at digital stamping.


I made this card for my son on his wedding day. I made it using my Stretch Your Imagination cricut cartridge.

Halloween Cards

I made these cards two simple cards for my sister and her daughter last year. I make a card every year and send it to them. I made them with my cricut machine. Thank you my dear hubby for that awesome Christmas gift.
Another Halloween card made with the Wild Card cartridge from Provo Craft. I just love the jewel eyes on the spider.


Here is a set of cards that I made for as a Christmas gift. I even made the little envelope. I am following later with a picture of the box I am going to attempt to make. Hope it turns out Ok.

Well here is the scallop purse I made to hold the cards above. I think for my first attempt it didn't turn out to bad. The idea came from Mona at
