Hello everyone! I am still having some neck issues so I haven't been creating much, but I wanted to show you this card that was sort of a happy accident. I have been purging some of my stash lately and came across this stamp that I had never used. I think I bought it with the intensions of using it for fireworks. I got to playing around with it and came up with the background using only a portion of the stamp(middle) and different colors. The first one I didn't like so I did a second one and used it for this card. In this context it looks more like flowers to me, so I decided to keep this stamp in my stash! The jar is a Sizzix die and embossing folder set. I cut the jar in white then cut two more in vellum and acetate and embossed the top two layers. I used my Gelly Roll pens to color on the acetate. I hope everyone is having a glorious weekend and thanks for stopping by!

 Supplies- Jar: Sizzix Bigz  die and embossing folder "Mason Jar", Lemons: "Preserves"," Cricut cart, Background stamp: Hampton Art "Double Vision", Outside sentiment: CTMH "Pun Fun" occasions, Inside sentiment: "Just Because Cards" Cricut

Hey Ya'll! Whew! I am so sorry for taking this long to get back to you! This week has been so hectic for me...Doctor's, dentist's, MRI's, my usual trip to Mom's once a week..... I haven't had time to catch my breath much less make a card! I have been having some neck problems and it hasn't been easy to sit at my table for a long period of time without pain, so I'm sharing a card that I made last month at a  Training Day session with Shirley Ross of Close To My Heart. She taught us how to make a Twisted Easel card with a window! I had never made one of these before and the window in it was a plus! We used tracing paper and Alcohol Ink markers from CTMH  to make our "window". Sit a battery operated tea light behind it and it glows. Added a seam binding bow with bakers twine and a wooden tag I had in my stash and Walla! Hope you enjoy looking, and maybe I can share a new creation with you in a couple of days! Till then... 

Supplies- Paper: CTMH  "Lucy", Seam binding: S.U. "Rose", Sentiments: CTMH "Love Life".

Hello all! Just poppin' in to share this last patriotic card with you. This one reminds me of my childhood years and celebrating on the 4th.  Oh to be a child again... riding your bike through the neighborhood with streamers flying in the wind, or playing cards attached to the spokes making the rat-a-tat-tat noise as you zipped by. Lol, I truly miss those days when you felt so free and did not have to worry about anything in the world as long as you where home before dark! I hope everyone has a happy and safe 4th of July, and I'll be back next week to share. Thanks for peeking!

Supplies- Bicycle: Cricut cartridge "Independence Day", Card and words: "Stand and Salute", Card base: Basic Gray Dot embossed, Dimensions: 5x5.
