About Me

My photo
I am a stay-at-home mom. I have been married to my handsome and wonderful husband for over 14 years. Right now he's battling stomach/esophagus cancer. So I do my best to craft when I can. I have two wonderful boys. My oldest, Garett, is 24 and served 5 years in the Navy. He's been home since the beginning of the year (2014). We are very proud of him. My youngest, "DJ", is 13 and in the 8th grade. I have two Border Collie mix dogs (Koda and Rugu), one Calico cat (Hydie), one orange Tabby cat (Bosley), one Tea Cup Chihuahua (Gigi...I LOVE her sooo much), a Chiweinnie (Lily....sweetest dog ever), and a Jack Russell/Chihuahua (Connor....AAALL boy).

Lovely Wedding

Hello again.

This card was made for a wonderful cousin of mine that has found the love of his life and is finally getting married.  He and his partner are getting married on the beach with only a handful of people.  In this world full of judgement and hate, prejudice and discrimination,  and just downright disrespect for everyone's owns beliefs...I'm so happy for my gay cousin to finally have met someone that is full of love and content and NO DRAMA.

Congrats to Bryan and Josh.  Love you both!!!

I made this card using the rainbow stamp from Happyville, the phrase from Thoughts of the Heart, and the Cloud background from the October 2010 KOM.  The Grateful Lattice from Spellbinders is cut in Hunter Green and the phrase is stamped in "hunter green" which is Bryan's favorite color.  The image and phrase background is in black and the clouds are stamped on red which is Josh's favorite colors.  I combined everything together to represent THEM.

Thanks again for stopping by.  Hope you like my card...even though it is a little "busy" lol.  HAPPY FRIDAY and HAPPY MARCH!!!

Have a PUN weekend

Happy Friday (Late) everyone....

Today I am showing off my Pun cards.  I know I posted these on Facebook but I'm showing them here too.  Not everyone gets a chance to be on Facebook so I gotta share them today.  These Unity Pun stamps are so adorable and FUNNY.  I hope you like what I've done with mine.  Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.

Ok....some people aren't getting the Sherbert card.  There's a song that goes, "Go go go go go Shawty, it's your birthday!"  But this is saying "It's Sherbert Day"

Flip the Birdie LOL

Today I'm sharing my flip card I made using a couple of stamp sets.  The Birdie Duet and the flower strip was from the August 2011 KOM.  Also there are two squares that are stamped using the Ann Butler Faux Quilting 1" Leaves All Over stamps.

I'm really happy with how this came out.  Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.

PS.  I also am sharing a card I made for a good friend I've known since 1973.  She is Irish and her birthday is on St. Patrick's Day.  I used the shamrocks I found in the February 2012 KOM.  Take care.

Thanks a Bunch

Hello!  This Unity stamp is from the Stamp of the Week collection.  I just love the flowers.  The die cut flowers are matching the ones in the image.  I left out the pink flower so it was unique and it's own.

The flowers were cut using Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland.  And the leaf branch was Memory Box Lavish Branch (which was perfect because it had the little flowers on it).  I added a little lace to give it a victorian/vintage type feel to it.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great week/weekend.

Chicky Chick Chick

I can't believe it's Friday again.  I hope those that are in extreme cold are staying warm.  It's been quite cold here (-10 to -30).  My poor little teacup Chihuahua barely gets out to pee and on her way back she is frozen in her tracks.  I have to rescue her and bring her back in under my warm coat.  LOL.

Anyway...my card project for this week is a card set using the Unity Chick stamps.  I haven't had a chance yet to use the Chick with the balloons, but it will go with this collection.  But here are two of them:  Chick in the Rain and You Crack Me Up.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope everyone has a marvelous weekend.  Chirp chirp!!
