Bio.
I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with like minded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself. This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!


Many thanks to our generous sponsors ,Stampendous  and Di's Digi Stamps  for their continued support.

The Inside




I made three gift boxes from a My Favorite Things 6x6 Paper Pack
called Homespun Gingham.
The kitty stamp set is Impression Obsession (CL1088)
There are eight kitties and five word stamps.

We had a black kitty like this when my daughter was growing up named
midnight. And now her family has one who just turned 13 years old
named Stormy

Have a great week
Until later...

Time to get a pumpkin

Hi friends, hope everyone is doing well this Wednesday.  The rain and storms have
finally left the area, to the delight of me and my dog.!  The pond is so full that
if we didn't have it surrounded by rocks, the fish would be floating around
in the middle of our yard!

I am making some Autumn cards to send to friends and relatives who no
longer live in this area and miss the changing of the leaves.
We have two horse chestnut trees in our front yard (chestnuts are not edible)
but the squirrels are carting them away for winter.  Good deal for us
then we don't have to rake up so many!





Stamp is from Northwoods Rubber Stamps and I have had it for a long time


Thanks for stopping by today
Have a good day.
Until later...

Christmas Baubles

Hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday.  We are expecting severe thunder storms
this evening (again) and our poor dog is so scared she gets crazy.  We got meds
from the Vet, and they work, but she becomes a zombie and I hate how pathetic 
she looks, but better than running around digging the rugs and panting.

I am going to try to post more of my cards besides my housemouse and
my card a week for my local stamp store.  When I worked full time, I
made a card and posted everyday.  How did I do that??

Anyway, here is a Christmas card I made recently.




I made a slimline card.  The pine branches stamp is an old one.
The baubles are a die from Sizzix.  They are called Impresslits
and they cut and emboss at the same time!  I love them.  I bought
 a few others and love them all.

They are cut with different foil papers and the end one is
is made with holographic paper from Michaels.  I glued
a thin silver string to the back of each one.

That's it, simple and I love how it turned out.

Thanks for stopping by today
Have a good day.
Until later...

                                  Inside pine bough stamp is an older stamp
                                  Pinecone Die - Memory Box Pinecone Stackers (4486)
                                  Circle Die - Gina Marie Designs
                                  Papers used - Green, Blue, white cardstock
                                  White glitter paper for assorted snowflakes
                                  Inks Clair, Paradise Blue
                                  Front of card image is colored with colored pencils

                                   Card is an A2, 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches
                                   Inside accordian fold is 1 sheet of designer paper 10 x 5 1/4

                                   repeat this pattern  until you get to the 8 inch fold
                                   I added a piece of white cadrstock to the last two inches so you could
                                   add a note and sign the card.
                                   Decorate each panel with a sentiment or small stamped image to go
                                   with the theme of your card (like the circles I added)
                                    
                                    This is a nice fun fold card, hope you get a chance to try it.
                                                           

That me for this week.
Thanks for stopping by for a peek.
