About Me

My photo
I am a mostly SAHM who is also a nursery/NICU nurse. I got into stamping about 9-10 years ago to pass the time. I have 2 kids (10 and 8) that are both in school full time and a wonderful husband of 14 years. We also have 3 Maine Coon cats that are part of our family. I really enjoy making cards and love learning new techniques. I am hoping to get more cards made now that my room is organized. Now if I could only find where I put everything...

Silver Valentine

It feels like forever since I have made a card.  I volunteered to be on my children's PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) this year.  Somehow I am the vice president.  At least we have a wonderful core group of ladies that have been helping, but it still takes a lot of time away from my crafting.  We are starting to organize our 1st carnival for the school in a long time so I hope I will be able to sneak a card in here and there.  I applaud all of the past and present PTO/PTA parents.  Hats off to you and all you do for your kids school.

Now with that being said here is my 1st Valentine card of the season.  I'm sure you all will recognize
"Silver Valentine" from Tiddly Inks digitals.  He is so cute.  Wryn is on my list of what to next so hopefully soon I will post a card with her.  She is so cute too.  Until later.  Happy Crafting.

Miss Anya Garland Gate Fold Card

This is my latest card featuring the Miss Anya Garland collection from The Greeting Farm. I colored her with copics that I cased off of Wendy Ramlakhan's blog.  I would be happy to direct you to her site but I have no idea yet how to do that.  This is a birthday card for my friend Rachel who also has a wonderful blog that I will direct link you to soon. Hopefully by this weekend I can figure out how to do that. 
  I got the paper at Michael's, ribbon at Hobby Lobby and the punch at Archiver's.

Happy New Year!

It's been awhile since I posted last.  Thanksgiving, Christmas and birthdays all seemed to fall together and I did not get much crafting done.  Here are some of my cards that I did last year.  Most of them are from Kraftin Kimmie along with some Greeting Farm.  You might notice a cake in the mix too.  My son's birthday is 3 days after Christmas and this year he wanted a Pirate themed cake.  Since I only had 2 days notice on what he wanted this is the skull and cross bones cake he got. And yes I actually made it.  It's not a cake pan.  It was delicious if I do say so myself.  Thanks for looking at my blog.  One of my resolutions this year is to blog more...maybe once a week?.  Fingers crossed....
