Green Greetings (Go Green)

This card is made almost entirely from recycled materials; a ritz box, newspaper, paper from a shoebox. The only thing new is the brad and the scrap of paper inside the card.

I am home....

WOW..... we had a wonderful time in Vegas. I did not win enough for the sewing machine or copics. But we had a great time. The rest of tonight I am chilling out in my PJs. I have chores tomorrow but as soon as they are complete I plan on spending the day crafting. Have a great weekend everyone!!!

Take care all,

Big Bag - Dallas Cowboys

I made this bag for my friend Janis's sister. I hope she likes it.

This is a variation on the card I posted yesterday. I needed to make birthday card and I liked the other one so well I tried to recreate it. I did hand dot all the white dots with a pen.... crazy huh? I wish I would have had another chipboard button..... oh well.

Big Blossom - Painted Card

A fellow papercrafter posted a teal and red challenge on the PCMB... this is my card. The picture does not show how deep teal the flower is. I really like how this card turned out.

Morning Glory Stamped Image Card

My friend Janis purchased this morning glory stamp at my BFF Tracy's used stamp sale..... How did I miss it....? I love the stamp. Thank goodness Janis let me stamp off a few. You can't see it well but the image is mounted on black card stock. I added glitter to a few flowers.... kinda reminds me of the morning dew.

WW Update - 20 Pounds Gone

I am so excited. Today I reached the 20 pound mark. Woooooooo-Hooooooooo. Because I am doing a life style change I elected not to weigh weekly. Since I am doing WW online this option works for me. In the past, I have gotten discouraged when the weigh didn't come off.... so not weighing weekly has really worked for me.

Take care all,

Simple Card

I made this card from leftovers. The little baggie includes stamped flowers. I thought it would be a cute little set to send to a papercrafting friend.

I made this card to send to my daughter. Orange is my favorite color so I had to buy this DP. I added snaps for the 3D effect.

I like how it turned out.
