Hello everyone! 

  I decided to sign up for another Use Your Stash Blog hop, and the theme is It's hard being green.  Those of you who know me know that green is not even a half way, sorta kinda color that I use or wear etc. I don't really care for green, so there's really not a whole lot of it floating around my craft room. I guess what I'm trying to say is it really is hard being green if you expect to find it here!
  I dug real deep and found pieces of green here, and there, and and came up with this card. I decided to make a swing card for Saint Patrick's Day. Like the stamp says, I was Feelin' Green, hehe! 
If you're coming from Janet's blog then you're on the right track! I hope you find inspiration and have some fun too!

 Your next stop will be Marie's blog. Go see what she has created and leave some love!

Party Animal

Hey Ya'll!

   I wanted to show you this card I made for my Grandson for his 18th birthday. When this stamp came out I just couldn't wait to purchase it and use it on a card!

   I used my Shinhan alcohol markers on it and I think it turned out pretty good for my amateur status. I'm more of a water color pencil girl, but I'm getting to where I like the Shinhan's a little better each time I use them! Any way, after I got the stink eye, my Grandson said he liked it and that's all that really matters.

   I hope everyone enjoyed their St. Pat's day, and thanks so much for looking in on me.

Birthday Funnies

Good Morning!

   I'm back with two more birthday cards, both of which I totally cased! I couldn't help myself since they each reminded me of my Son and my Dad. I thought they would get a laugh out of them! 

    This first one was for my son who tells me he is falling apart physically.

 I used the Cricut cartridge  "Simply Charmed" and a Sizzix decorative strip die for the letters. I got the inspiration from Pinterest and could not track down who the original card maker was, but whoever you are thank you so much, my Son loved it!

 This card was for my Dad for his 80th birthday and he got a good chuckle out of it! This one was also inspired by Pinterest at
Both of the cards say " Gettin' Old Ain't for Sissies" on the inside.

I used the Cricut cartridge "Stretch Your Imagination" for this card. Thanks for peeking, and have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hello everyone!
   I am so glad that "Birthday Season" is finally over at my house! Now I can take a little breather and show you some of the cards I created. This card was made for my Sister In Law who has had and forever will have grand children running around all over the house( and still working too)!

 I thought she deserved the honor of being Queen for the Day on her birthday. I think we all need that one day where we get to wear a crown, don't you?!
   This card base  and pop-up were made from the "Artfully Sent" cartridge from Close to My Heart. I am in love with this cartridge! It's got it all, from cards to overlays to pop-ups and pockets. I'm in heaven!
  Thanks for looking in on me, and I hope you like the peek!
