How Sweet the Smell!

I love flowers and love to get fresh ones don't you? Here are some very pretty ones I am sending your way! The card on the left was made using eggplant card stock, newsprint designer paper, and the card base was embossed with one of our many beautiful folders. I love lots of layers and texture in cards and the folders are one of the easiest ways to add that extra to your cards. The flowers center is graced with a vintage looking brad that is again my kind of "WOW" ! The red card has a polka dot embossed base, a stamped and punched flower, and the beautiful red ribbon to seal the deal. I added the last card with the blue flowers to give you your motivation for the day. It is smart to remember that tearing the card stock to get a different looks adds another design element to your project, after tearing, accent with what I call icing. It is like icing a cookie or cake, pick your color of ink pad or stampin up marker and go for it! I also like to ice the edges with a sponge ( yes I do save all of those out of my make up and fragrance gift boxes) and I also like to use a dauber, that fits on the end of my finger with a sponge tip. Those sponge eye shadow applicators work too, so get to repurposing things and just play to see what you can design.( Did you see my green fingers? That is my best applicator and always with me! LOL) When you like the color, size and accent pause and place it on the base of your card to see how it looks. Try using a bright accent color, and you can get a very different look and feel to your card/project. The last card is clean and simple and the stamped cup cake, cut out and glued onto the button just gives it a little extra fun! I hope you send me sample!

Flutter By Butterfly!

These cards have such pretty color combinations. I like to try new colors and I also like the look of the torn designer paper. The use of punches, also adds a demonising to the card that is very pleasing to your eye! The card on the left has been embossed with the stampin up polka dot embossing folder, and a punch and die cute used for the tag.

The cards were shared by my stamp friend Denise. Thanks for the great inspirations and being willing to give me new ways to design my cards!

Happy New Year Blessings!

Hello to all my stampin friends! I hope this finds you doing well and starting the new year off feeling very blessed. I have been sick with diverticulitis for over three weeks, and had to have a CT scan of my stomach. The Lord has taken care of me and it is something that can be cured so I am off and running again. I encountered several wonderful new friends on my journey. First my friends Betty and Ann and sister Patty called and emailed me daily to check in and cheer me up! My friend Fannie from College Station emails me and reminds me that she prays for me often! My family has called me, text, and emailed me and came to see me and has really helped me to take my mind off the pain and fear that it was something worse. I had a large knot about the size of a pear in my colon and it would not go away and the pain was similar to labor pains! My dear sweet husband has been out of town for a few day with his basketball team! Yes they won! Yet, not having him to help me and keep me boosted up was very difficult as he is my mainstay! So, my new friend Alma got me into see her doctor as I have not found new doctors since we moved here. It was during the Holidays and doctors offices were closing and not taking new patients! My new doctor scheduled me for the Ct scan which is not a fun test but I was sure ready to find out what was going on and get better. My veins collapsed as I was dehydrated, and it took 4 sticks to get a vein to put in the contrast die! I am there alone and the most wonderful tech could tell I was upset, maybe cause of the tears that were rolling down my face, she put her arms around me and told me that she could tell I was a believer and that God was there with me and he would help and see me through this! I was sure remind of that fact that "HE" is always with us and all we have to do is look and and listen for him! The male tech came in and he was finally able to get a vein and he too was so kind and encouraging. They both worked to make me feel comfortable, and encouraged me that I would be fine. So, what is the morale of the story? You know how it smells when your in a hospital? There is that medicinal, and cleaning product smell? It seems to add to my level of anxiety. When those two people embraced me and reminded me of the blessings of my faith and to encourage me to remember that "The Lord is Always with me," that smell went away! I felt a fresh outside breath of air, and a power of relief come over me that seemed to lift me up off the scan machine! So, for this new year "BELIEVE"! I am home and feeling so much better, the new medications are working and I am on my way to a full recovery. This has reminded me how important that my family and friends are, and how I must embrace life and experience it to the fullest, and not waste any time!


It is so great to be able to post again, my plate has been very full with my husbands illness but he is doing better and I am trying to get...
