Hello people.  I know you did not miss me, but I missed you really :)  Life has been extremely busy lately.   No matter what, I try to always find time for me.  I have a passion for crafting and it soothes my soul.  I started a craft group about 18 years ago or so called Wine and Dine Scrappers.  I was scrap booking then.  Lots of different ladies over the years but 5 of us remain the same and are now the Original Wine and Dine Crafters.  We now are into card making and altered art.  Every year we put on a holiday crop that has a theme.  This year was Speakeasy.  Just want to share the decorations I made, my card swap, and for the gift exchange we were to alter cigar boxes. Hope I will be able to post again real soon.  Thanks for stopping in.

Hi folks, just wanted to share a swap I did over at Scraps of Color.  It was an altered cigar box swap.  I had several sitting around that I got from my friend Karen a while back.  Let me tell you. I had so much fun creating this for my swap partner I had to start another one.  It is all color coordinated including the handmade embellishments I put inside.  Be inspired, because it sure got me creating nothing into something.  Later

Well I am back so soon this time.  I have been in a coloring, card making mood lately and just want to make pretty cards.  I tend to make a lot of girly birthday cards because everybody has a birthday and we all want to feel special.  Besides that, I love bright colors and bling.  Here are a couple of cards I made today.  Have a great night and a better tomorrow.

Well, I had a very fun day yesterday when my BFF, sister and another crafty friend decided to have a craft day at my house.  We started at 2:00 p.m. and called it a night

 at 2:00 a.m..  This time included at trip to JoAnn's and getting some dinner.  I made 4 cards using some images that I had been wanting to use.  One was an image from Lameka's line art and another was a die cut given to me by one of my Chi town crafty friends.  I .love making cards.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hello friends.  I know I continue to be a slacker, but I am still crafting whenever I get the chance.  The last few months have been very busy and stressful but God is always good.  Found some really cute images that I fell in love with and had to have.  I was able to color them while a friend was visiting from Wisconsin and make cards with them.  Thanks for looking

Don't be shocked.  I am actually doing a post.  Did a swap over at Scraps of Color using a Prima doll to make a state tag.  I really had fun making this for my partner.  I would love to do it again sometime soon.
