I had soooo much fun and success in doing those, I could see me doing a whole journal in that way. I wonder what that would be like.....I just might have to try it and now I know how some people could have so many different journals going at once.

This spread I made about some friends who have been married forever and seem to be heading down the road to divorce. Its so sad to think that even after 20 years, you can still get a divorce. I mean I would think you have made it!
I see that the date stamp on the picture says 1/15/2010.....but that is wrong. Will have to fix that! I think you will be seeing more of this and maybe a little less of card making on my blog! But that is okay, cause I am enjoying the journey!!!

I have found that I learn pretty well with flash cards. I have kept all of my flashcards from other classes. One day while I was reading my 250 pages, and taking notes, I decided to take a break and do something creative. I mean we can't be all work and no play right?! So I decided to make a cover for my flash cards and this is what I came up with.
As a side note: I realized after the first week of class when I had a stack of cards that were like two inches thick, that I wouldn't be doing flashcards for everything! But I love how this came out and will use it for those concepts or ideas that I just can't seem to get.

I made this card a while ago. It was a download from Becky Oehlers and she subsequently came out with a stamp set with these images as well. I think they are just so stinkin cute!
I colored it with Prisma pencils and really love the way it looks! How 'bout you?

I recently have gotten the Tattered Flowers Die, from Tim Holtz and I have had some Grungeboard sheets forever!!! I have seen some people make the flower and I wanted to give it a go. I made it and I really do like how it came out but I think it was to bulky to go on the cover of the book. So, I will put that one on another project. I already have an idea what I will use it on. I'll post a pic once I am done, in the meanitme, I went ahead and made two flowers out of paper that I stamped and embosssed.
I am excited about how this came out, I sewed on this project, a firt time thing for me. I do not have a sewing machine, so every stitch is hand stitched not to mention poking all the holes! HA HA. I am gonna use this for a place to keep my ideas about being creative. Weather that means a Card sketch, an interesting color combo, a project that I want to try. Who knows when I will be able to craft as I just recieved my letter inviting me to start the nursing program in the Fall. I hope that I will continue to find time to stamp and be creative while I am learning!

I started this card before I went on vacation and I didn't even try to find a different kind of fold type of card since I knew time would be hard for me! But I am happy in the end on how this came out. One of my favorite things is how I stamped the birds with VersaMark and then brushed on Ranger's Perfect Pearls in Green Patina.
I used alot of different products on this card. Tim Holtz stamps and inks, Memory Box paper, Colorbox Chalk Ink. If you have any questions just ask, and let me know what you think!

I made this card for a co-worker of my hubby's. He had let us use a comp room at the Showboat for a weekend. We had a great time and I just wanted to show some appreciation.

Unfortunately, I have had cause to use these cards. I was thinking the other day that I needed to make some, because let's face it, I am getting older and so are the people around me and in the last few years I have many around me die. You know friends, fathers, grandmothers, just the other day a co-worker of my husbands, died of a heart attack at 42!!!! Crazy right?! Anyway on to lovelier thoughts.
This is the first card I made, I like how the second one came out better, but I do like the tone on tone stamped over the sentiment on the inside of the first one.

The card base is craft with Sweet Blush underneath it with some Cream Card stock stamped with Polka Dot Basics I (one of my all time fav's) with the circle being cut out of Bazill CS with the Impressabilities by Spellbinders, found it at my local Michael's. Couldn't believe it. I colored the crown with Copic markers and the sentiment was stamped using Color Box Chalk Ink Dark Brown. I inked the edges of the sentiment with Tim Holt'z Pink Lipstick.
I really like how it came out. Hope you do too!

I had a hard time putting this together, but think it came out pretty well, and she seemed to like the card as too.
Mother's day is one of those holidays I really enjoy. I love the fact that my family takes me out for lunch/dinner (but we usually try to do this on Sat. instead of Sunday, the crowds are just too much) and we usually see my MIL and my SIL and treat them as well. This year my darling man bought all of us ladies wrist corsages (how old fashioned), loved it!!! Then after lunch we took my MIL home and sat outside in the gazebo just chatting. It was a lovely day. Now onto the details of the card.

Here's hoping it works! I visit several blogs and on one I noticed that she often altered notebooks and I thought I would give it a try. So I did 2 of them. One I put the cover on wrong, but by then it's to late, so the second one was the way it was supposed to be! Live and learn. I really liked how they came out and gave each of the girls one. I see Sarah using hers, but not Faith...hmmmm. Anywho, here they are. Was thinking of making a few more and trying to sell them for like $8-$10 a piece, what do you think?
The other one I made was done in pink.
Cardstock is Papertrey Ink
