Flower Garden

Wow, the designer gals did an awesome job on Regina's Bitten By The Bug challenge to use the Cricut Plantin cartridge, use the zig zag/rick rack die cut and it had to be in lime green. So here is my take on that challenge.

Explosion Box

This is an Explosion Box. I finally tackled one and I am happy with the results. I will make many more of these. Great fun.
Each flip up "page" front and back has a birthday message or a die cut, an embellishment, a fabric flower, a metal corner, a Cricut die cut. I distressed the pages with Ranger Distress Inks, brown, green and tangerine. I used a corner punch to round the edges. This little box explodes with so many pages on which you can have great fun with.

Trio Array

This is a class at Red Rubber Stamps scheduled for February 13th a 10:30. A trio of all purpose cards. I've used the Cuttlebug for embossing, flower punches, ribbons and the Xyron Design Runner for the sentiments.

Apple of My Eye

I loved the apple die cut on the Cricut Plantin cartridge so I just had to make something with it. Here is my version of a Valentine Card or one that just says I love you for no particular reason or season. The flower, and the apple, the letters for U and I are all from Plantin Schoolbook cartridge. The heart is the squeeze punch. A ribbon, some dots and there you have it.
My Apple card...!!!


A little sewing on some bright colored papers, cut out some giant Gerbera Daisies, a few ribbons and a Jasmine corner in Harlquin paper, some rubber stamps....and we have a card that darn near shines in the dark.

Butterfly Glitz

Sometimes we just have to have a little glitz in our life, right??? This was done with the Cuttlebug Embossing Folders, Tear Drop Cricut Cartridge for the butterfly and the Dangling B, ribbons, rubber stamp and flower punch. And oh let's not forget that wonderful blue Stickles stuff.

Heart Trio

Here's a little card that has a trio of hearts on it. The Cricut cartridge Joys Of The Season made that neat little leaf twig, and the hearts are from a punch, and the scallop is from one of the Cricut carts. However, I grabbed it up from my scrap tray so I don't recall which one. The papers are DCWV.

I've Been Tagged

Holy Cow, I finally got tagged by my friend DeeDee. I am so happy. I've been watching everyone get tagged and felt so lonely and left out. But here I am.... and I will share 7 things about me. I have no idea though how in the world I will tag 7 others because anyone that I would choose to tag......DeeDee already did. Oh well, here goes.
1. I finally retired. But everyone already knows that because I've shouted it to anyone within ear shot/email distance.
I can't believe after 50 years of working, I am finally retired. I started in banking in 1957, worked in mortgage lending and trustee sales until retirement......I have so many plans.
2. I am single. I was married for almost 8 years and I've been divorced for 36 years. My son is 38. He is the light of my life along with his precious wife, Lee.
3. I knit and crochet a lot. I have about 14 projects I am working on. In addition to be an absolute paper addict, I love my yarns. I have tubs and tubs of yarns. The yarn stores love me too.
4. I love the rain. Not flooding rains, not thunderous booming rains, but gentle rains. I was born in Phoenix AZ so I guess the love of it would be a natural. We don't get much rain. I freakazoid when the lightning gets bad. My grandmother and my mother were the same way so I came by this naturally.
5. I used to be a great trustworthy cook. Now I make do. Thank heaven for Marie Calender.
6. I love making signs. I've been in shops and seen sloppy signs and I have been known to make a really first class sign and mail it to them anonymously. I always sneak back in too, to see if they have used it. And they usually do.
7. I am so proud of all the creative things I've been able to do in my life.r I started crafting when I was about 12 and I am 70, that gave me a lot of years to cover.
That's all folks. And now I do apologize because I had no one to tag. Next time perhaps.
