I have several thank you cards to send, so hope none of those people are reading my blog today...haha

No mojo yet, so I totally scraplifted Deloris' adorable thank you card.  Just to add a personal touch, I added some scallops to one, along with some ribbon and a button I dot-painted with a brown copic marker to match the cow, but I totally love Deloris' just the way it is.  The cute stamp is from the set called Bovinia Buttinski's Gang from Lindy's Stamp Gang.  Okay....thought this would help get "my feet wet" and help get my groove back.  Slowly but surely! I've decided to entered this in Rhonda's "Anything Goes" challenge at The Latte Lounge.

Deloris's card: Mooochas Grassias

I seem to be on an animal movement...haha  However, I am still trying to do some svgs that I want to work with soon, so as promised, here is today's freebie.


Both A2 size card, MS punch, copic markers

This has ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with today's card, but I have big plans for this svg soon.

I had such high hopes of baking this holiday season...but that vision flew right out the window.  I saw a rolling pin drawn my Tim (don't know last name) and took that idea after holding my wonderful old rolling pin that belonged to a great-grandmother.

I have no mojo!!!  I'm so far behind that I don't know where to start in card-making.

I'll start with an svg. I thought of putting a Peachy Keen face on it....."Rollin right along", recipe for love, rockin and a rollin....

Seeking help from my friends and followers....

I would like to offer some prototypes of pretty, fun, different wedding invitations to my son and his fiance. I did the "Save the Date" simple cards.  They want a simple traditional wedding and will be staying with black and white.  I don't know her flowers yet, but any flowers will do right now for a card sample.  I'm thinking of a side step card or a slider card.  An easel card could work too.  I'm thinking 3D of some type.  I need some inspiration guys.  I want something different, but in good taste.  I want something for people to say..."wow...that's different, or how unusual and how pretty!"  The people receiving these cards are not "into" card crafting or familiar with our work and are use to the usual wedding invite.  Please help with the mojo.

I also want to keep the postage down to no more than two stamps.  Flowers are certainly doable and small flat buttons and ribbon, svgs and small pop-ups for dimension.  (I'm looking at 85 invitations.  Wedding is May 28, 2010) in her church chapel that holds 200 people with a reception to follower at the Natural History Museum...You can make-up all the details.  I can buy any punch and I have lots of Martha Stewart punches and borders already.  I'm needing design help....so HELP HELP HELP!

I will begin posting some fun svgs in the next few days and getting back on track, but this is "SO" on my mind.

Thank you!

I used a folding method I learned from a card workshop I took not long ago.  It's the same fold, but you cut the paper 5 different sizes...graduated.  The paper has a glimmer and sheen, but does not have sparkles.  I used lots of little red flat paper shiny gems.  I have only been able to find them in a specialty card craft stamp store I patronize when I have a little extra cash....so you know I don't visit it often...haha   I used a little corner punch for the corners.
      I'm really hurrying to add this to the Operation Write Home challenge.  This is the first card I've done in 3 weeks.  But in the evenings, lying in bed, I've been working on some svgs to post real soon.  Finished up my 80 "Save the Date" cards yesterday and delivered.  
Size A2...can't remember the name of the paper, but bought at specialty shop

     Please don't give up on me.   I'll be back.  Teaching in the mornings and administering ACT in the afternoons.  I'm also working on "Save the Date" cards for my son and his fiance....sent them the prototypes today and when they choose I will have about 80 to do by next Tuesday....so I'm busy.  The extra money will definitely help with my craft addiction.  In the mean time....I hope everyone is enjoying the hustle and bustle of this time of year, staying healthy and safe. And, it's ICY COLD here!

These are not all, but a sample of some I did.....sending 45 cards to Celeste.  I didn't quite make 50, but I hope that I helped a little for a wonderful cause.

I'll be posting the last of my Valentine cards tonight, but in the mean time....on to a continued problem I'm having....... When someone ask me to send them a svg that is no longer posted, I really don't mind as long as they are a follower, but I'm rarely given an email address to send it to....oops...ended in a preposition!

REMEMBER: If you email me for a file, you must give me your return email address.  If you make a request for a file in the "comment box", the request comes to my email, but it DOES NOT give me your address...so I can not respond or fulfill your request.

Gosh....I wish this problem could be solved.

I took my moose svg I offered a few weeks ago and re-constructed the antlers to meet my needs for Valentine's.  Does anybody notice what I did to the antlers?  Again, keeping it simple but fun since I'm doing so many. 


A2 size, MS button punch, googly eyes, flower punch, inking

     A freebie bee svg!  I cut 2 in SCAL and reversed one to make a mirrored pair.  I plan to put different sentiments on the cards....some more silly...to reach different needs of the military personnel. In order to make a lot, I can't spend too much time on any one, so these are very quickie cards, but I still think nice enough that anyone would enjoy getting....well.... I hope...haha


MS border punch, Peachy Keen faces, swirl embossing folder, cheap hive stamp from AC Moores
