My last one

Here it is, my last card using the Alexandra Renke paper bunnies. I fussy cut them and used a cut apart sentiment from Echo Park paper for the panel on aqua c/s. I glued that panel to a sheet of pattern paper and adhered it to a card base. It feels good to be using my paper but it is hard to cut it up! It's a 12 x 12 paper so you really have to cut it to use it. It's so dark here because of storms that I couldn't get a good picture.

Why does a chicken coop (coupe) have two doors? If it had four doors it would be called a chicken sedan.

Let's separate

I bought Daisy a new brand of food Friday and you can't just change food, you have to mix the new a little at a time to the old food until she gets used to it. What you see in the picture below is how she methodically picked out the new food and left the old! Very neat and tidy on her part, not so on my part.

The card today is another quick and easy card with a Renke paper bunny cut with an oval die from Spellbinders and framed in pink c/s. The pattern paper is Simple Stories. I have one more from the Renke paper I'm working on, then on to my new products I got this week.

The rotation of the earth really makes my day.

I'm so happy

I'm so happy for my dear friend. She recently had a hip replacement and this is the card I made for her. She needed to get that done and she is healing nicely. I used an embossing folder from We R Memory Keepers over a sponged panel.  I sprayed the panel after it was sponged with Glitter Dust from JoAnn's. The die is from Creative Expressions by Sue Wilson cut in black cardstock and layered with several layers of white c/s. 

I'm not aging like wine. I'm aging more like milk. Sour and chunky.

Hey Chick

Using more of Alexandra Renke paper I cute these cute little chicks out with a Lil Inker die and added a SU sentiment. The pattern paper is Simple Stories. I am working on a few more cards using that Renke paper. I think making simple cards gives me a jump start when I've been stymied. 

Friends bring such joy to our lives. Great friends bring margaritas.

Time to make Easter cards

I have been so uninspired to make cards lately. I finally got off my duff and made a simple card for my granddaughter. I used a Lil' Inkers circle die to cut this chick from Alexander Renke paper. I adhered it to pattern paper from Echo Park and added Easter egg puffy stickers from my stash.

So bitter cold

So bitter cold with high winds yesterday. Today it is suppose to be in the 60's and climbing. I can't remember a year with back and forth weather like this.

My friend has received her birthday card and now I can share it. I love this background stamp by Simon Says called You Matter. I embossed it in white embossing powder on kraft cardstock and didn't want to cover it up so she could see what she means to me. I added the die cut flower from Memory Box. The flower center is from my stash. The white panel is cut with a Penny Black die and adhered to a kraft note card.

Wine is now cheaper than fuel. Drink, don't drive.

In Support

The news coming out of Ukraine just breaks my heart. I'm so proud of the people there who are fighting back and so sad when families break up to save their lives. No one should have to live through something like this. Here is my card to honor them. The sunflower die is from Momenta and the Prayers is Simon Says Stamp. I will add this to the colorhues challenge.

I debated about adding a joke on this post but I think the purpose of adding the jokes is to bring a smile each day.

What is the opposite of irony?

More paper

I have some friends who needed a big hug and we are too far away for me to give it to them so I created this card. It uses the same paper from Craft Consortium as my last card and a die from SU. I cut the die from gold mirror c/s and layered it on some matching plum c/s. It's not the same as a real hug but she knows I'm thinking about her.

Why am I the only naked person at the gender reveal party?

I'm so sorry I told you wrong. The Paper Hugs die is from Simon Says Stamp.

Easy alcohol ink

I have tons of alcohol ink but when I saw this paper from Craft Consortium I fell in love. I wanted to send my sweet friend a birthday card but also tell her how much I miss her so I made a combination card for her. I used the Faux Cloisonne on the word Miss using a Tonic die and a SSS die for the you cut in gold mirror c/s. The pink foam heart is from my stash.
