My latest cards

I am gong to keep this really short just in case my body decides to fall alseep while I am trying to post this.  Seriously, it's been happening alot lately.  I can't tell you how many times I have worn my coffee this week.  One minute I am drinking my coffee and checking out my favorite blogs and the next minute it's an hour later and my clothes are soaked and so is my work space and anythiing I was working on (or reading).  I just bought 3 new magazines yesterday and they were ruined this morning by a very full cup of coffee :-(.  It's getting very frustrating, but the light is getting closer at the end of the tunnel.  I go for my final sleep study at the hospital on Tuesday and this one is to identify which CPAP machine is going to be the best for me.  I'll keep you posted, it will probably be another 2 weeks after that before I get to see the specialist again!!  Grrrrr, I really don't like the waiting.  OK, so much for this not being a long post, so on with it.....................

Here are some of my latest cards that I have been working on over the last little while.  Not really as many as I would have liked.  I wanted to enter some challenges, but I couldn't find any that fit the theme of my cards.  Oh well there will be others :-)

Everything just came together really well on this card from the colours of the cardstock to the accessory cardstock used and the brads used I really like the way it turned out :-)
This card was a complete accident from start to finish.  I had some scraps and that's actually how this one started, so I put it on the card just to see how it would look and to my surprise, it fit.  Then I found the oval green piece and it matched perfectly in colour and size. Then I found the cupcakaes and the balloons and the next thing I new, I had a card :-)  Love it when a card comes together like that, especially when you are really new at this!!
This card was made especially with my SIL in mind, it was her BD coming up and I had her gift all picked out, but not her card, so I decided to do this one with the blossoms "bleeding" a bit if you will.  It turned out exactly the way I had envisioned it, I loved it! and so did she :-).
White Stamp on Black Cardstock with a Red Silk Ribbon, Finished off with Silver Brads in the corners.


  1. So here I go again trying to post a comment on your blog, but not working again. Just wanted to say thanks for all your wonderful work that you do. You have done so many cakes and cards and all are so good it is hard to pick my fav. But I would have to say it was the Panda and the New Year Cake also the sailboat.

  2. Thanks Marika, you keep me busy and I like that :-) Thank you also for the wonderful comments!!


I would love to hear what you think or what's on your mind :-) Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment.
