SPRING CARD




I finally got to spend a little time making a card. It's been a cold, rainy day here today. The perfect day to spend in my stamproom. I decided to make a card for my mom to let her know that I'm thinking of her.

As always, thank you for taking the time to visit. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.

Thank you Candy




I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who visits my blogs and takes the time to leave me such sweet comments. It's been almost a year since I started this blog. I originally started it as a way to keep in touch with my daughter and who was off in college in FL.

Most of you know that my daughter was killed in a car accident. It's been 6 months since the accident and I miss her so much every second of everyday. I think the one thing that has kept me going is my love of this hobby as well as all of the support that I've gotten from so many people who belong to this wonderful group.

Cindy's 24th birthday is April 6th. So in her honor and as a way to say thank you I've decided to get some candy together for you. Please leave a comment below as well as your blog address if you have one.

I have no idea how to do Mr. Linky so I will put all the names in a jar and have my husband pull the winning name.I would love it if you chose to follow my blog and post this candy on your sidebar but it isn't necessary to win.

Thank you again for all the love and support that I've gotten from this group. You have no idea how much you've touched my heart.

Easter Tilda




I can't believe that we are already close to Easter. Where is the year going? I've had this little Tilda for a while but it's the first time that I've inked her up. I decided on an Easel card and I'm thinking that I may have put too much on it. Haven't decided yet. It's done, i guess that's all the matters. lol

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day. The weather is 80 degrees with a cool breeze. I couldn't ask for more than that. Happy Crafting and thanks for stopping by.

Wishing you a special day



I just love the new stamps from the "you are so special" line. I couldn't wait to ink them up and have some fun with them. This is a card that I've done for a friends birthday coming up next month.

The colors I'll admit are alot brighter than I'm used to. Trying to break out of my comfort zone...not sure how that's working for me yet.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you're all enjoying the beautiful weather outstide.

Hello fellow maggie lovers. As always, I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy lives to stop by my blog. Your comments are always so appreciated.

I'm not sure why I made this card other than the fact that I love this sweet little Tilda and couldn't wait to ink her up. My camera is on the fritz so I had to take the picture with my phone. The colors are not as vivid as they are IRl.

I hope you're all having a wonderful day!

A card for Haile

Please help a child in need of a smile


This card is for a very special girl who could use as our help. A simple gesture such as making a card might help to make her difficult days a little brighter. Crafters are some of the most generous, thoughtful people that I know. Won't you help put a smile on this little girls face?

Please read below for a little more about Halie. This was taken from Michelle's Scrapbookings blog

Haeli is this little girl's name and she is a 6th grader( 12 years old) in Canton Ohio. Haeli is dealing with a very serious disease that is very hard for an adult to deal with so for a child I can't even begin to understand.
She has a very rare form of ovarian cancer. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

You can read the whole story about this on Michelle's blog.http://michellesscrap.blogspot.com/2011/03/special-story-to-tell-youcan-you-help.html

You know when things like this touch in our lives it makes us stop and think of just how blessed that we really are in our own lives and or helps us cope with our own lives better.

I will be sending my card to:
Haeli
c/o Melissa French
1425 23rd St. NE

Cherry Tilda


Happy Saturday! I got a special delivery yesterday from Diana and could not wait to get into my craftroom this morning to actually play with my new goodies. I've been drooling over this sweet little Tilda since she came out and now I finally have her in my hot little hands.

Here is the card that I've done. She's wasn't done with any particular occassion in mind, so I'll just pot her away until I need a card. I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far! Thanks for stopping by.
