I cannot believe that I have not posted anything since 2011! Where has the time gone. I was seriously thinking of closing down my blog as I just don't have the time anymore to make cards let alone post them. I have not even been in my craft room for probably five months & have only made cards maybe 3 times since my last post in 2011. I have debated whether I should sell my stuff or not. I have so much money invested in it & it seems such a shame for it to just be sitting there unused collecting dust. I keep telling myself maybe next week or next month I will have a free afternoon to spend crafting but nope, never happens. I thought we were suppose to slow down as we got older? My life just seems to be speeding up not slowing down. Anyways I just thought I would post this quickly in case someone happens to stumble upon my blog & wonders why nothing has been posted in 2 years. I'm still here, just need to find time :(

It's a beautiful fall day here today, still warm enough to enjoy a popsicle or two! The leaves are starting to turn and pretty soon I will have to be out raking them up! I haven't been in my craft room for ages and decided to go down and spend some time. I made this popsicle card using the Gypsy & Smiley Cards cart. I have absolutely no little girls cards in my stash & this was very quick & easy to make. The striped paper & pink paper were from my scrap drawer. I embossed the white background with the Cuttlebug and took a chunk out of the popsicle with my round scalloped punch. The sentiment stamps are from Copper Leaf Creations. Well I'm off to run some errands.
Have a great day everyone.

Another crappy day here today. Hopefully tomorrow will be sunny. I was going to head down to my craft room but I am tired so I probably wouldn't be very productive.
I didn't have any anniversary cards on hand so I made a few of these up. They were pretty quick and simple to do. The owl stamp is from Stampendous called Owl Friends. I used the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder after I stamped the image on the front. This folder has become one of my favorites and I have been using it quite a bit lately. I used some Tim Holtz distressed ink around the edges of the kraft paper. The inside verse was computer generated and cut out with my nesties.
I saw a card similar to this online & unfortunately I don't remember who created it to give credit but I thought it was so cute I would make a few. The apple is from a Stampin Up set called Tart n' Tangy I believe and I used my Cricut to cut the A+ for the inside. The best teacher stamp was from the $1.50 bin at Michael's.
I made this for my mom's birthday this year. The stamp is from a retired Stampin Up set I have never used before and I have no idea what the name is. I paper pieced the one dress with paper from the scrap drawer and colored the flower with my Copics. The inside verse is computer generated.

I wanted to try my Puffy paint (which I cannot find in Canada grrrrrr) that my mother bought for me at JoAnn's. I decided to use the Cricut Smiley Cards cart and make the beer card. I gotta tell you that I love this paint. It is so easy to apply and then you just use your embossing gun and it puffs right up. It was so perfect for this card. I used the Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder on the mug. I don't think it shows up very well in the pic but it adds a nice texture to the card. The verse inside is computer generated.
I have seen different variations of this card done with a heart punch but I didn't have one in the correct size so I used the Cricut to cut mine. I used a Cuttlebug frame folder on the front as well as the Swiss Dots folder on the bride heart and a Cuttlebug border folder on the inside.
