About Me

My photo
Minnesota, United States
I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 55 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, tatting, X 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.

This is my final guest DT card for the month of April.  I had a lot of fun creating my entries.    Thanks Outlawz for asking me, and a special thanks to my daughters for their helpful suggestions.

Tatted Doily

This is my first ever tatted doily.  It may not be perfect but I think it’s a beauty!

Tatted foot thongs

I finished my first pair of foot thongs.  My tatting has advanced from card fronts to foot wear thanks to all the help I received from Katy King.  If you are interested in this pattern or any of her other creations they can be found at http://www.etsy.com/shop/RustiKate?ref=shop_sugg

This weeks challenge at Outlawz was to create your own background paper. I made mine with digi flowers, Versa Mark stamping dusted with Perfect Pearls.

Dance in the rain

I made this card last week for the Outlaws challenge.  Today we now have 12+ inches of snow on the ground. We'll be dancing in the snow if this keeps up much longer. So much for April showers.

Still Tatting

I'm still tatting and hopefully improving.

I love making kids cards.  These were made for my great-granddaughters for Easter.

I was asked to be a guest designer on The Outlawz http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/
I will be posting my cards for the month of April Monday Greeting Challenges.
This is the first one using a Rick St. Dennis digi image.
