Hello you all!

Well I tried to come up with a new and lovely blog design for you. Tried several on and they just didn't do the job. So here's another, not my favorite colors for sure but seems to be a good background for the cards. 
Another snowy day for us in the Cariboo. I think I can safely say that the majority of us aren't terribly impressed! Yes, I know we need the moisture in the ground after all of the fires we had around here last summer. Well really we needed this the winter before now didn't we!!! Perhaps we wouldn't have had the fires!!! Anyways, I can't seem to control the weather no matter how hard I try!!! lol Not even with my magic wand!
Hope you enjoy the cards! And wherever you are, your day as well!
I will be back sometime! 

This birthday card is for a friend

This card is for Sandy in 100 Mile not to far from where I live. I hope it has finally gotten to her! This is a digi stamp from Mo's digital designs! Love her stuff! 

Birthday card for a friend

I made this card for Dianne way over in Quebec! Isn't this just so darn cute!!! I am not a big magnolia fan but this is one that I do like! The punch is EK Success. Spellbinder circle dies. And if you look closely at the butterflies they are made from the cutouts off the punch! I glittered them up and thought, yup that looks like a butterfly to me!

A birthday card for my brother

This was a based on a card that I saw somewhere out on the great wide web! The die cut is made from a Heartfelt Designs die set (made by Spellbinders for them) The flowers are from Wild Orchid. Background words are an SU stamp. Terri at sells the die's at a really good price, as well as a lot of other things.

Ok now I really have to do something else!

Oh ya I know, make supper!!!! Ok so I wasn't at it that long and supper are just left over's!!! I added a couple of new sites to my links for you. Stamps Alive is run by a gal named Terri. She has really awesome prices and is great to deal with as well! Also added is Bugaboo Stamps. It is run by a gal named Jodie! She has also started putting some of her digital stamps into polymer. Should likely put that link up there too, hey. Ya, maybe tomorrow!!!! So I hope you enjoy and also that I did a reasonable job of telling you what stuff I used on the cards, even if it is the same stuff over and over!!!. Ciao for now and have a great evening! I promise I have a couple more to add but can't just yet as they haven't been received.

In Remembrance of

We will never forget you Bev!

This card was made (for her daughter) with much sadness after the passing of a wonderful lady. Who fought very hard but didn't win her battle with cancer.

This was a card for Simone for no real reason!

This stamp is from Crafter's Companion. They are called Popcorn Bears.  I find that they are fairly large. They don't leave you a lot of room on a reasonably sized card to put much else. So if you are into few embellishments then these are good stamps for you. I used some nesties, gems, leaf punch, wild orchid flowers which I spiraled some of the ends of the stems, that's the dark green you see sticking up there. In the upper right corner I put a die cut photo corner, likely made by sizzix.

This was a card for Eulanda no reason just a card!

Isn't this adorable. I love this stamp. It is another one of Elizabeth Bell's design. Purchased it from SCAD. This little girl looks a whole lot like my grandaughter! And as you can see I used spellbinder nesties, Wild Orchid flowers, Quickutz flourish. And a bunch of other stuff.

Now isn't Mildred just a lovely lady!!!!!

Oh this woman just makes me giggle!!!! She is just irreverent! Image is a digital stamp from Bugaboo Stamps. Who just happens to hale from Saskatchewan in Canada. I should have this made into a poster!!!! Seems I get off on one thing and before you know it there is a million things that are chompin at my own @#! that need to be done. hahaha oh well.
Some spellbinder shapes used here. And a new punch made for SU. Yep got the corner punch that goes with it. I gotta learn to use those better. I have a number of them and really think they look nice but dumb as a post when it comes to getting it to work out well for me, and yes I have read the instructions a million....well maybe 3 times!!!! I will get it oh yes I will!!!! I must post a link to Jodie's site at Bugaboo Stamps.

Scarecrow cards

Oh yeah, must not forget this one! I made one of these each for my girls for fall. If I remember correctly I made the easel cards. But you know how hard it is to take a good pic of those kind of cards! So apparently I don't have one!!! The image is digital and I can't find which company made it. I took all of my stuff off my computer and it is on CD's for the time being.

Oh goodie looks like it is blurry!

Birthday card for my cousin in Ontario. Magnolia stamp. Sentiment from a SU set.  Lace from Wild Orchid also the flowers. Leaves Martha Stewart  And Ek Success punches. 

A card for Barb when she got home from the hospital

This is an  Elizabeth Bell design. The stamp is from Belles and Whistles in Hawaii.  I used copics to color the image. The image was cut out with a spellbinder die also the heart die is from Spellbinders. The leaves are Martha Stewart and EK Sucess punches. Flowers are from Wild Orchid.

To my friend Barb

This is a card I sent to a friend who was in the hospital with a major back surgery. Unfortunately she didn't get it until she got home. This is a digital stamp by Di'd Digital Downloads. Colored with copics.

I'll likely get around to answering you sooner or later! aaaaaaaaaahahahahaha Oh and by the way Happy New Year!!!!!! aye!

This wasn't the only ones I did but the other ones are fairly similar to some of these! And apparently I didn't do much of a cropping job on some of them either! Oh my! Must run for now. Supper in the making and company coming soon! Oh would you look at that snow coming down out there. It is so pretty! I have been snowplowing about 2 miles of driveway for 3 days this week. Fun!
