Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Getting a lot of swap completed

Made these two cards today for a floral swap.  I am having so much fun completing my swap on SCS. Hope people are liking the cards I am making. The top card is using CC302 and SC313 turned the long way up.. The stamp is Fast and Fabulous from SU using white, Real Red and Black. The ribbon is SU Real Red Ribbon Grosgrain Polka Dot and I tied it in the center with some red spool of ribbon. I am not sure I like the two step stamping much as I wish it would line up better.  The bottom card is CC293 Concord Cherry Olives. I used the Because I Care stamp for the flower and thank you. The flower is t5amped in Crushed Concord and leaves are Old Olive with the Thank you in Cherry Cobbler. Flower is back in Cherry Coblbb\er and double border punches in Olive and Concord accented with Ruby rhinestones. Thanks for looking. These are in the mail soon.

This was my favorite Christmas Gift of all time.  I have had by pictures in packets trying to find time to scrap them.  Now I don't have to, I am going to make a couple of albums for grandmothers now.  My daughter made me this most wonderful 8x8 album patterned after her 12x12,  It is the most beautiful wedding album I have ever seen.  She wrote me a special thank you as the last page that made me cry.  Amazingly they do grow up and learn to appreciate their parents very much. I hope she made an album also for Matt's mother.
