Blast from the past!

My husband and myself have finally
made the decision to downsize and move from
our home into a condo.  We made an offer two weeks
ago and it was accepted so now the packing
begins.  This week I began packing up my craft loft and
can I tell you, this is tough!  We all know most of us
are paper hoarders and we have do dads of all kinds.
Both my Cricut Expression & Silhouette Cameo
are now put away.  My cuttlebug and dies are packed.
I gave away more set of Stampin Up stamps than
I care to think of - so what does that leave me?
A very clean craft room!  LOL!

I felt like this would be a good chance to post
some of my previous projects that I have loved
so much.  Thank you for your support!
I love that you follow my blog and if you've just
happened upon my blog for the first time,
stay tuned!  If all goes well, I should be 
crafting again in September!

Since I'm eating cherries - I thought this would be an
appropriate card.  Featuring Cardztv Stamps, I love this card.


Thanks for stopping by!

Butterfly Shaker Card

First let me say - I've missed you all!

It's been almost two weeks since my last post
and I truly miss making cards/crafts/3D projects and
posting them, but life has a way of getting

Ha ha!  Not really.  I had the joy
of having my two sons, their wives and all
three grandchildren at my home at the
same time.   I have one son who lives
locally and the other one is from MN, so not
 a lot of opportunity to have them all together.
It was a rare treat, but I'm sure you understand
why crafting was low on the list of things
to do!

My hubby and I are making moves to sell
our home and downsize.  This is a tough decision!
I have so many great memories here, it's hard
to think it's time to make this move.
My head tells me it's time, but my 
heart tugs at me to stay especially after
entertaining the entire family last week.

I'd appreciate your prayers so we make the
right decision.  If we place an offer on the home
we are looking at now, we would like to sell our home
as soon as possible.

I have a beautiful card to share with you today.
I have a staff member leaving my office on Friday for
a new opportunity and I wanted to make her a special card.
I used a Silhouette file for the Butterfly shaker.  OMG!
This was so easy.  I used Anna Griffin paper and I love
the shimmer.  I think the card is very elegant.

If you have a Silhouette, there are several
shaker cards in the store.  They are easy peasy!

Have a great night!

You are a lifesaver!

Working without power in a medical office is
a real challenge but today it happened in  mine.

I work with a great team who rose to the occasion
and helped me in every way.  I made them
little post it note covers and used My Creative Time's
newest release to express my gratitude.

Crafting is my way of destressing, so I made 10 of
these little cuties!

They were fun and I apologize for the poor
photography but it's darker in my loft than
when I usually take photos.

Need to destress!  Join me in cutting and glueing
and make something fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Anniversary!

I'm sure you all feel how FAST
life is moving these days, right?  Well
right before my eyes, my son and daughter in law
celebrated their anniversary and I was so busy
it passed me by and I didn't get a card made :(
Well, today I made up for it!
Here's whats going in the mail tomorrow:

The owls are a Stampin Up punch and I only
punched them out in black so I could use them as
silhouettes.  The branch and leaves I found in
the Silhouette store.  I used four
dies from My Creative Time for the clouds, sun
and mats on the inside.

Of course I had to sprinkle some sequins from
My Craft Spot, twine from Trendy Twine and sentiments
from Cardztv, FOR THE BIRDS.
