Hello Friends. Been away to Punta Cana DR. It was fun and nice to get away, but there is no place like home especially if that is where your craft stash is. I really needed a fix after 7 days. I broke out some of my prima dolls and got busy creating a couple of tags for a couple of my FB friends just because. I chose the 4th of July theme since it is upon us. I love these dolls and have so much fun playing with them. It brings out the kid in me. Oh well, you are never to old to have fun. Thanks for stopping by.

I'm back. Did anyone miss me? LOL oh well, I will pretend you did anyway. Just to catch you up, I had a birthday on May 23 and turned 40+. My bff's husband sent me a flight to come visit her in Dallas on the 24th which is her birthday. On Friday we hooked up with Roz Davis, who is another online crafty friend, and drove to Oklahoma for a weekend of crafting. It was a wonderful retreat house and the 5 of us had a great time bonding and crafting until Monday evening. I will definitely do this again. After returning home on a Wednesday, I had a few days before heading to the White Mountains in Pinetop, AZ. I had never been but lived in AZ all my life. Me and my friend Bernie hit every casino on the way up. Unfortunately, we left our donations there. Next up and last trip for this summer is next Wednesday. Me and my sis are headed to Punta Cana, DR for 5 days. I look forward to this get away. Well, enough about my adventures, I did come to post a couple of cards. I rarely make male cards as it does not come easy for me. I got a request for one so I just made two. I like how they came out.

Hello, it's me. Yep, I have been a slacker when it comes to this blog. However, I have been creating on a regular. Got orders for about 15 cards. Mostly Mother's Day, but 3 birthdays and one graduation. I love to create unique cards but sometimes it is a challenge to stay focused and get things done. I have three more to complete then I am done for now. Here are 5 of the Mother's Day cards. Peace out

Hello people, it has been awhile. That does not mean I have not been creating, just forgetting to update sometimes. Today I am sharing 2 cards I used with my second La la Land stamp I purchased at Bluemoon Scrapbooking this week. I had been eyeballing it for a couple of weeks as it appeared to be something I wanted to create a card for one of my coloring class friends grand daughter who is terminal. She has been released from the hospital but only given a few months to live. Bless my Embrace Your Art ( Scraps of Color) friends , as many have sent cards as well just to brighten her day. While I was at it, there is another lady who spends most of her time care giving her child. She needs a smile also, so I made her an Easter card which I am entering into a challenge over at Embrace your Art. I remember when I was in her position and feeling like you had the world on your shoulders. You become Super Mom at these times. Anyway, hope I have sparked some creativity in you or perhaps get you to thinking of someone who might need some cheering up. Catch you later.

Hello bloggers and friends. I was on Pinterest and came across this cute digi image that I had to purchase from ETSY. It came with 4 images that were African inspired. This one was my favorite so I did her three times. Hope you like her as much as I did. Thanks for stopping in.

Hello crafty people. Hope you are taking time to get in some crafting since it is National Craft Month. I myself try to get it in whenever I can as I am obsessed with creating. Last night I created a couple of Prima doll tags. One is for a friend who shares his birthday with St. Patrick and the other I was just playing around with an Asian themed tag. I used Adam and Marisol dolls.

Sharing a few cards I made this past week for customers. One is for a sister who likes purple and shopping, a father who loves old cars and a mother who is turning 90 years old and wears hats to church every Sunday. (she is also my cousin). Thanks for looking and have a fabulous Thursday.
