Love&Laughter

 Here's a lovely card from a kit by Simple Stories.  I just love the beautiful flower, so pretty.  I can't believe it's the last week of the month already.  I am just nine days from Spring Break (nine working days) and the following week I will be going to a convention in Irving Texas!

Question of the day:  Hmmm, what type of supply or stamp topic do you not tend to use in your crafting?

Me?  Believe it or not I don't use die cuts that come with the stamp sets.  I don't use alphabet dies (I occasionally use stickers), I don't use much twine or twill which is weird because i love lace

Dear Sandra, I miss you

 Here's a wonderful image from one of my favorite artists!  Sandra Caldwell.  I am sure some of you are aware that she passed away unexpectedly.  It made me quite sad, but her memory lives on in these beautiful images that she created.  I was on her design team from the start and worked with her at several different stamp companies.

Question of the day:  what shape/size of cards do you make?

Me?  I still think my favorite size is 6x6

Puppy Love

A true friend leaves paw prints on your heart....now how cute is that sentiment that goes with this wonderful image from Unity stamps.  I added some great dog prints and some beautiful Turkish lace as well.

Woman

Here's a great Unity stamp card today.  I have lots of unity stamps to give away.  I just love their wonderful itty-bitty stamps and their wonderful sets with images and sentiments that go together.  They seem to have the right stamp for just about every occasion.  I thought the sentiment perfect for the celebration this month, "you can break down a woman temporarily, but a REAL WOMAN will always pick up the pieces, rebuild herself & come back STRONGER than ever."  How perfect is that?

Question of the day: what's your favorite die cut topic?

Me?  I like frames, words, hmmm, wow, lots of things i guess, coffee, skulls

Butterflies

 I just love this card because it says, "Without change there would be no Butterflies"  oh how true is that.  That makes me think of the amount of change I had to go through to have the surgery and then the amount of change that happened after the surgery.  WOW.  This card comes from a great kit by Simple Stories.

Mine?  despite this card, which i love, my usual favorites are oranges, yellows, reds and browns

Awesome Friend

 Here's a great multilayer card from Photoplay. It says, "You are such an awesome Friend."  I totally love these cute card kits.  They are fun to make (either in the way they show you or like me sometimes, any way I want) when you want to do cards but either don't have all the materials at hand or don't have the exact mojo needed to stamping, coloring, layouts,.....when stuck, I like to pull out these kits and create a handful of cards to get going again.

Question of the day:  do you every use card making kits?

Me?  I love card making kits from all companies, esp ones that have ready made pics.  It's fun to just put cards together either following the directions or not (I often change them from the directions), but sometimes I just wanna craft but lack the time and immediate inspiration to just pop out a few cards.

You're Special

 Here's a cute bear card from Krazy Kreations.  They sell these cute kits in sets of three.  I think you are supposed to make three identical cards, but you know how well that goes for me....lol (it doesn't).  The great thing this company has is this amazing glitter paper that you can stamp, color,....you take your copics, color it, then use wonderful peel off stickers and put them on top to make the bear and the flower.

Question of the day:  what's your favorite tool to use when making cards?  

Me?  i think mine is my Misti

Question of the day:  what are your LEAST favorite embellishments--you know--the ones you have a ton of but never use

Mine?  i have tons of washi tape that I don't use, I have lots of eyelets that I never do, I have lots of die cuts that I don't seem to use anymore...
