Winter Sympathy Card

  Hello, Hope you all are doing well. Today I wanted to share with you a Sympathy card I made. 

Just writing this post brings tears to my eyes. My husbands cousin passed away recently from Covid, She was only 57. This card is for her sister. 

I was so sad while making this card. Her passing was a shock to us all. Her husband also passed. It's just heartbreaking. 

I really need to make Sympathy cards ahead because this one was a hard one to make.

 I think that's going to be all from me today.  Blessings to you all, Stay Safe my friends.

What I Love Birthday Card

  Hello, Glad you stopped by. Hope you all are doing well. It's a cold morning here in Indiana. Enjoying a cup of hot coffee. We have around 7 inches of snow. Thankful we didn't get the amount of snow that they were calling for. Grand kids have been out of school all this week. They are doing e-learning. 

 This snow storm has effected so many parts of the U.S. Continuing prayers for the people in Texas that are still without heat and electricity and also North Carolina that was hit with a Tornado.

For my post today I wanted to share a birthday card that I made. So I decided on using my newest stamp set. It's a set from Stampin Up called What I Love.

This stamp set is no longer available. I purchased it on e-bay and got it for a great price. 

For the flowers I used Pink Pirouette and Ruby Red and used So Saffron for the centers. I didn't use the leaf stamp that came with the set. I decided to use a die that I had. I think I used Certainly Celery cardstock for the leaves.

 I thought the embossing folder would be perfect for this card. Don't remember the name of it.

I had wanted to get this stamp set when it came out but didn't.  So glad  I found it at such a great deal.

Roses for Mom Card

  Hello Crafter's. Hope your doing well. It will soon be Valentines Day. I will be leaving today to spend a few days with my Mom.

She doesn't like to be left alone on Valentines Day. So before I leave I wanted to share with you the card that I made her. 



I used a stamp set is from Studio Light. I stamped the roses in Pink Pirouette and Ruby Red. My Mom's favorite color is teal. She has teal in every room of her house, So instead of green leaves I decided on making them teal. 

I cut the oval die in gold. I wanted to make the black layer gold also but didn't have enough gold left to do it. That was disappointing. 

The leaf embossing folder is from a cut and emboss set from Momenta. Sentiment is from Close to my Heart called  Beloved Bouquet. Added a little rhinestone next to the sentiment and also added a few little pieces of gold cardstock that had come off of the oval die when I cut it out. 

I'm happy with how it turned out and I know my Mom will love it. 

I recently had a birthday and thought I would share a picture of the card my sister Tonda made for me.

I thought It was so cute. Years ago I gave her little grand daughter a little Ty beanie baby Hippo. They named it Cinny. My great-niece Livi is a senior this year and still has Cinny the Hippo. My Sister said she thought that this little hippo card was perfect for me and purple and green are two of my favorite colors. 

So that's all I have for today. Hope you all can make it back. Stay Safe and Stay Crafty.


 Wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day!!!

Valentine Treat Boxes

  Today Is Monday, this coming Sunday will be Valentines Day. I thought I would make a few treat boxes to put some candy and money in to give to my Grandkids. 





 I recently bought a retired Stampin Up stamp set on ebay and the seller also sent me that cute little Valentine kitty stamp. I thought it would be cute on my grand daughters box. Colored it with some alcohol markers. The Happy Valentines Day stamp is from CC Designs.

 Thought they turned out pretty cute and they were really easy to put together.

This is a quick post from me. Have a lot to do today. I will be sharing a Valentine card with you in a few days.  Hope you can come back. 

Have a great day my friends. Stay Safe and Stay Crafty!
