About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 53 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 6 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

Sit Back and Relax

This card was made with an Elisabeth Bell Digi image colored with Prismacolor pencils. The head scarf, blouse and pant cuffs were paper pieced.

These are two of the cards I made for church for November. I masked off the center and the sun and sponged on SU night of navy, so saffron and more mustard. Then I sponged summer sun on the sun area.

I taped the 4 1/4 X 5 ½ sponged card front to a piece of copy paper and printed the saying in Univrsty Roman font and used the MDS 1 digital stamp Just Believe in chocolate chip.  The bird was purchased at Impress. The card front is matted in navy blue and yellow Bazzill textured cardstock.  A stampin’ Up punch was used for the corners.

EB World Challenge

This is my first entry into a challenge at Elisabeth Bell's World challenge Blog at http://elisabethbellsworldchallengeblog.blogspot.com/

The challenge was to make a Christmas card without using a Christmas Image.  I chose to make a side step card using this adorable birthday digi image that I colored with Prisma Colored pencils. This was my first purchase of an EB digi but certainly not my last.

Iam also entering this card in http://www.stampsmiles.com/2012/09/september-blog-candy.html#.UEH4yNZlQf4 Crafty Christmas Challenge

Challenge #150 Lovely Layers


These cards were made for my twin granddaughters.  The belly bands have a place in the back for money or a gift card.  The fairy dust was made out of glitter and embossing powder given to one of the twins by their dad’s mom (Grandma Grace) when she retired from stamping. I am entering them in Mo Manning's challenges at http://mosdigitalchallenge.blogspot.com/
