Palm Springs and warmer weather

Just a quick message to let everyone we are in Palm Springs away from the cold and snow, enjoying the warmer weather here in the Palm Springs area.

I don't have a very fast internet connection so it is hard to upload any pictures, I will try at the next camp ground we are at.

See you soon

Sorry about the no posts for awhile

Sorry about the lack of posts lately, I have been going thru stress tests before my gall bladder surgery to-morrow.  I hope I will not be in too bad of shape to get some cards made and up here. And if all this is not emough it seems we have sold our house out from under we will be selling a whole lot of things including a lot of my craft tools and supplies so stay tuned for that list in about a week, I am going to be putting a lot of the bigger things on Kijiji.
Here are a few of the cards I had been working on before all this took place, I should have had them up before now!

In no perticular order!

Say a little prayer for me for to-morrow and I will see you in about a week

Thanks for having a look

I am on a roll..Maybe

Because I still had photos sitting here of my perfect subject I decided I should make another page,  so I did,  this is a black and white photo, paper used stamping up, large stars were cut out using my Craft Robo, small stars are punched.  Then I decided to take the pages upstairs to more light  ie daylight and see if I could get the colors better, here is the picture from my last post also,  I think the colors are much I said I am a terrible picture taker.


That's it for to-day I will be back to-morrow with some cards I am working on.

Thanks for stopping by

20 Minute or Less Scrapbook Page Challenge

Well I thought I would give the Friday 20 minute Scrapbook page Challenge from Carole'Anne's blog Stampin Stress Away a were to make a page using this template in 20 mins or less...haha took me a lot longer than that...I am not much good at doing pages. 
So here is my feable attempt...I tried to get the lettering higgly piggly and I see now I did not do that good of a job of that and the colors don't seem to be that great either in the do you take a picture of a 12 x 12 page anyway??? anyone got an answer for me???

All paper used was Stampin Up, the letters were cut out using my Craft Robo

Cute Little Favor Boxes

Here is a couple of little favor boxes/baskets I made using a GSD cut file I designed and cut out with my Craft Robo.  If you would like the GSD file for the basket just e-mail me and I will send it to you. Paper used Stampin Up, the last of my Sweet Pea Flowers from Stampin Up, the green basket I put the handle in too far and of course glued it, so I was stuck with it there.  These were easy to make and would be great for wedding fovors done in the wedding colors.

And then I made what I call quilt block cards using left over paper from the Sweet Pea DSP from Stampin Up, homemade flowers and butterflies using the emboslit from Stampin UP

Hope you enjoyed my little post for this evening.
Thanks for stopping by.

LNS Color Challenge #73 Edited

Did  another card for the Late Night Stampers Color Challenge 73

I decided I would try the LNS Color challenge #73 using Night of Navy, Bordering Blue and So Saffron.
I put a little glitter on the butterflies, it doesn't show up too well in the picture and I finally broke into my package of So Saffron DSP I have been hoarding, for what I don't know......use your paper Cara , then you can buy more!!!...I really must get using more of my DSP papers

And speaking of DSP, Cindy over at Cindy Lou - Stamping Guru, she got me using up my Sweet Pea DSP, I have hardly any left, I took her Sweet Pea Class she had, I have so many cards made with it .....Frantastic class!!  I have signed up for her next class which is coming up June 21st, have you signed up? Go check it out , tell her that I sent will be fun..... I have my paper and I am ready to start.

Digital Image Fred She Said

This is a card I made for My cousins Terry 65th Birthday which is to-day I used a pre colored digital image from Fred-She-Said...she has some really great images, some are colored and others you have to color yourself and and she has lots of free image too...go check it out!

This card is a shadow box card I made for a mingle I was in, I sent it off to South Africa,
I hope she got it Ok ......It cost a fortune to send cards to South Africa, so I hope she likes it.

This is the inside of the card I did the words on the computer, should have taken a picture of the whole thing so you could see it all it has little boxes so you can check the appropriate sentiment.

Thanks for taking a look

And still more Cards I have been playing around with.

This card the flowers were cut with the big shot and a Stampin up die, inked the edges and crumpled the petals, scalloped edge and sentiment from Stampin Up

This easel card was made using a digital image from Instant Printable Images, I cut it out and then did some tile printing on it , with versamark ink and clear embossing powder and then distressed it with Tim Holtz distress ink so the spaces would show up.

This is also a digital inage from the same sheet called Mothers Day. The background was embossed with The Cuttlebug using the Folder called Allegro

This next card was easy, patterned paper for the back ground, hand made flower and sentiment done on the computor.

Thats it for now  I have one more card to show you but I can't put it up till Monday, as it is Bryan's birthday card, he says he never comes here to look but I bet he does!!

Please leave a comment and tell me what you think.

Thanks for stopping by.

Cara's Mess

Well I finally finished the 3 cards I have been messing around with the last few days, my niece is getting married in Oct and my sister is wanting to make her cards so I was putting to-gether a few ideas for her...this is another take on the card I made before, it opens where the pink scalloped border is and you can put the invitation inside, I have some light pink paper that is perfect it looks sorta like parchment.

This card I was messing around with water color pencils on the flowers and thought I should do
something with them so here is my creation

This card is made with flower and butterfly stickers!  Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and cuttlebug embossing folder, piece of organdy ribbon I had here and computor generated sentiment.

Hope you like my messing around creations!
