Distress Inks….

17 Apr

Good Morning!

I hope you all are having a great week!  I have been busy at work and haven’t been in my craft room all week but I thought I would share a card that I made last weekend with you.

Dragonfly Vine 2I love all the colors in this background paper that I made using my distress inks.  It is such a cheerful looking card.  I of course reached for one of my favorite stamps, Dragonfly Vine.  I have used this stamp SO many times!

Thanks for peeking in!

Dragonfly Vine…

Hey Blog Friends…

I haven’t shared any cards that I have made lately with my beloved Stampendous Dragonfly Vine stamp!  How wrong is that???

Dragonfly VineThis is truly one of my favorite stamps and I always make sure I have several cards in my stash using this stamp.  The design paper I used for this card is by My Mind’s Eye, Collectable… I am sure you know by now My Mind’s Eye paper is my number 1 favorite!

I hope you are all having a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Nope I have to work until I’m dead… I stayed home with my children until they were able to look after themselves with out a baby sitter.  But I do get to make retirement cards for my co-workers!  the lucky buggers!

RetirementThis was a snap to put together with that lovely Marianne Designs die cut in the back and using the lovely happy retirement stamp by Stampabilities.

I am looking forward to a busy weekend but I know I am not going to have much crafty time as I am teaching class at the Cutting Garden tomorrow and then I am helping out with the Yard Sale at the Garden on Sunday.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Good Morning!

I don’t make baby cards often but I always like to have a couple in my stash ready for when I need them.  This is a new Hampton Art stamp I picked up recently.  There is no coloring involved so it makes it so easy to make up a few cards in no time at all.

Baby 001I used my Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet ink for the baby carriage and a page out of my all time favorite Recollections Garden Floral paper pad.  I finished it off with a lovely Marianne Design die cut, some nice white wide ribbon and a flower made on my Cameo.

Ta dah!!  Too Easy!

By the way…. if anyone knows where Spring went, can you let me know please?  We are just getting over 24+ hours of snow and freezing rain.  I just can not tell you how sick I am of this terrible long winter we have had this year!

Have a great day all!
