Weeknight cards

With the storms I was able to get some card making done.  Here are a few that I finished this past week.
Made with Martha Stewart Punches

Using the Brocade window embossing folder and Poinsettia from

Here is a close up of the poinsetia.  It has a shimmer to it that the camera never shows!

A fall card made with Spellbinders Label 7.  This one I used a lot of foam dots on and it is quite thick.  The post office said $1.22 to mail it, so I guess I will be keeping it and using it to hand deliver to someone!

Because it is the season, I thought I would share this one with you as well.

I hope you are having a great safe day.

A few more cards

I am going to show a few more cards today that I have made in the past.  We had a terrible wind storm last night and it took down trees here and much of the area was without power until lunch time today.  Some areas are still without power.  We were fortunate that we did not lose any power but did have numerous trees down in the yard and over the driveway.
Birthday card for future DIL

Coffee Shaker card with instant coffee in the shaker!

Z fold card with pop up butterfly

That's all for today.  I hope everyone is having a good day.  Thank you for looking and I appreciate your kind comments.

I am here!

Thanks to Bonnie at I have started my first blog.

I have been making cards for about 4 years now and am completely addicted to this art form. I started wih Tea Bag Folding and Iris Folding and now have advanced to punches, cuttlebug use, and some rubber stamping. Did I tell you how addicted I am to my Cuttlebug??? I love it. I don't know how I ever made any cards with out it.

I am currently working on my Christmas cards and will show some of them on here as I make them. But I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipients so will not show all of them.

I hope to see some of my friends here and can't wait to make new ones as well.

Here is a quick sample of my work:
