I almost missed making a card for one of my favorite holidays.  I love Halloween but I feel like it came to fast this year.  I had better get started on my Christmas cards so they can get mailed this year.  :)  Anyway, I will be entering this card over at since I missed the last one with pumkins.  This one is an Anything goes.  Happy Halloween my friends.

Last of the Facebook card giveaway

Wow, I am moving right along with these posts.  A few weeks back I offered cards to several of my Facebook friends just for responding that they wanted one.  I completed all of them but two before I went on vacation.  The last two are for 2 crafty people that are also on Scraps of Color.   One is a male who had caught the crafting bug a few years ago.  As I look back to when he started, he has grown so much. Well, I hope they like the cards I chose to make for them.  Till next time.

Breast Cancer Month

Hello again.  I am back with the rest of my cards that I sent out for Breast Cancer Month.  It is almost over but I might try to make a couple of more.  I really like doing these but did not get as many out as I usually do.  This is in part because we did not have the Breast Cancer Challenge over at Scraps of Color like we usually do and get names of people who are survivors.  I also got thrown off a bit because I was gone the first part of the month.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy my cards as much as I do.  Thank you and come again.

Pink Pink Pink

Hi fellow crafters.  Today I want to share with you a couple of project I did using pink.  The first one is a card I make for someone who requested that I use the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco Opera House.  Well, I do not have images like that so I had to improvise.  I used a black and white image from the net for the bridge and on the back he had a special message for his favorite cousin.  I used a Robert Jackson image for an "opera" singer. I cut a San Francisco city scape with my Silhouette if you can see it in the second picture.   Oh well, it was the best I could do.  The card is a side step card.

This next project is for one of Scrappy friends over at Scraps of Color who is a Breast Cancer Survivor.  I found this plaque at the dollar store  knowing darn well I did not want that ugly picture on it.  I used an image from Scrapbook Stamp Society and BC paper and lots of bling for this.  The little angel says " Angels watching over you".  Thank you again for checking my blog out.

Hi good people.  Those that know me, know that I rarely do any scrapping even though that is where I started.  A few years ago I fell in love with card making and left my scrapping behind.  I promised myself that I would scrap my latest cruise pictures so they will not be just sitting around like the rest.  Wish me luck in finishing them, but I started with two pages anyway.  I only printed about 55 pics and plan to put as many on a page as possible.  I have not got the trendy bug of  Project Life and such so it is old school for me.  Thank you for looking.

Over at Scraps of Color, there is a challenge going on in the Robert Jackson digi group.  You have to make a project using one of his images for breast cancer month.  Now, the best part of this is that you also have to send that card or project out to a SOC friend or a personal friend to brighten their day.  I love Breast Cancer month and try to send out as many cards as I can, but I am behind this year since I went on vacation and had other commitments.  I will do what I can and if I forget you, blame it on my head and not my heart.  I know so many of you are going through or have gone through it already and just knowing someone thought about you could make your day.  Stay strong and continue to fight like a girl. My project is an altered note book for a friend.  The inside cover has a pocket with a book mark.   Peace out

Hi folks, just want to share a card I made for one of my best Scraps of Colors friends, Ms. Vivian Bolden better known on SOC as Dr. Diva.  I don't know about the Dr., but she is a DIVA.  Anyway Happy Birthday my friend.  Hope you have a wonderful day.  Oh and by the way, this card is gonna be late, but I hope you see the love I put into it.  The front image is a self image of Vivian by Robert Jackson.  The card is a vertical stair step card. The inside image was found on Pinterest.  Ok, so are you gonna go try this one and make it yours?  I sure hope so.  Thanks for stopping in.

Triple Easel Card

Hey Folks, it has been awhile since my last post.  Let's see, oh yeah I was headed to a cruise.  You ask "how was it?"  Fabulous Darling, just fabulous.  Got to hang out with some old and new Scraps of Color friends and lots of friendly folks along the way.  Maybe you can go too for the next one in 2015.
OK, time to get back to doing what I love best and that is crafting.  I found this cute card on Pinterest called a Triple Easel card and thought I would give it a try.  My goal is to try all the cards I have pinned sometime this year.  This was made for a lady who said she needed a birthday card for her sister/best friend.  I don't recall who makes this image, but I thought it would be appropriate for her.  I cut the fence with my Silhouette and the grass and vines are Memory Box dies. I made a matching envelope with my Envelope Punch Board.  Thanks for taking the time to look.

Ok folks, I am so totally excited.  As lots of you know, Classygirl over at Scraps of Color has coordinated a Scrapping Cruise and guess who is going?????  Now this is not my first cruise, but it is my first scrapping cruise.  I am just excited to be meeting some of the ladies that I have chatted and shared photos with over the last 6 or 7 yrs.  I will be traveling with my sister and meeting up with two other ladies that I had the pleasure to meet before.  I don't know how much crafting I will be doing, but I sure know I am gonna have some fun.    I started by making some traveling gear to sport while on the cruise. (I made a smaller pair of ear rings as those are BIG)  I also made myself a  blinged up visor and a name plate for my table out of a picture frame.  I will miss you all for a few days, but I will be back with stuff to post.  Hugz and see you later.

FB card Give Away

The other day while I was budget shopping at the Ninetynine  Cent Plus store, I ran across some really cool paper packs for just .99.  There was some pretty paper in there so I posted my find on Face Book and stated I was excited and wanted to make some cards with this paper.  During my excitement, I ask "who wants a card?".  Well, I got lots of responses, but I looked at the ones that said "I do" or "me" specifically.  That would be 8 people.  Oh what was I thinking?  Well, being a woman of my word, I have completed four of the cards and they went in the mail today.  I hope my card brightens someone's day and puts a smile on their face.  See you next time.
