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.

Birthday Sparkle

This week on Mod Squad Challenge we were asked to make a birthday card with sparkle. http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/
I detest glitter because I tend to end up with it every where.  I have to admit though, it's pretty darn cute on this card.TFL

Lavender and Lace 8/19/2015

This weeks challenge on the Mod Squad Challenge Blog http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/
was to use Lavender & lace.  I made my card with a background of Bazzil Lavender paper. I embossed & hand cut  parchment for my top layer.  My embellishment was a lace bow.  TFL

Nobody's perfect

It took me 3 tries to get this gate fold card right.  The frosting coloring on the cupcake of my first card was terrible.  I tried to mask my mess with a cut out top but then it looked like a mushroom.  My second image was better but unfortunately I had some misspelled words on the inside. I'm not going to look to closely at my 3rd card.  I need to get it in the mail, if there are mistakes so be it.
