Christmas Cards Day 4 (final)

Welcome! This is my final post of 2017 Christmas cards. I love watching Anna Griffin on HSN and when I saw her Christmas shaker cards, I had to get them. They were so fun to make and gave me a creative break from all my original designed cards.

The kit included the card base, envelops, layers, frames for the cut outs, sequin shaker packages, embellishments and sentiments. All with adhesive except the bows. I think it was enough for 30 cards.

Take a look!

Aren't these terrific? I still love making my own cards and designs but adding a predesigned kit to my routine is a great idea. My loved one enjoyed these cards and so did I.
If you missed my other Christmas cards, check them on my previous blog post. Thanks for visiting and I hope you were inspired.

Christmas Cards Day 3

Welcome to day 3 of my Christmas card review.  I made these two mini album cards for some loved ones. I enjoyed using Echo Park patterned paper and stickers. Such a keepsake.


Love the pocket on the left with the little note card in it.

This next one is a tri-fold card. It also includes pockets for notes and gift cards.

Thanks for looking and I have one more day to share. Have a nice day.

Christmas Cards Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of my Christmas card post. Not only did I make cards but I made a few mini album cards. I used Echo Park holiday collection
This album was made for my mom and turned out so cute. Take a look!

Loved adding the pocket on the left.

Here is another one I made as a gift. I love the little truck with the bold black and white striped paper.

Hope you enjoyed and I will be sharing more cards this week for Day 3. Have a nice day!

My NEW Art Video

Today, I am proud to present my 2017 "Light. Love & Life" collection, featuring some of my most recent art. I am so happy to share it with you, my friends. As many of you know I am a self taught artist and just started learning to draw around 2012. Since then, I have seen my abilities grow as well as my passion. There is nothing like painting on a warm, Summer, afternoon while listening to some old tv show like "George and Gracie!"

Art details- Most of the art was done with acrylic paint on 16x20 canvas. A few were done in my sketch book. I even did one with colored pencils. It was fun using different mediums and sizes.

So, take a look and feel free to leave a comment.

Cards for Mother's Day

Mother's Day is almost here and I have made lots of cards for the occasion. Some were sold and others will be used for my use so that is great.
I loved all the variety of this collection. Flowers feel just right for a card for moms.  So feminine and sweet.
Enjoy looking at this collection and wishing all you mom's a fantastic Mother's Day!!!

Have a nice day all!

Valentine's Cards

Happy belated Valentine's Day. I hope it was a sweet one for you all.

I just love making greeting cards for this holiday.  Nornally for Valentine's I make red and black cards which I love but this year I decided to add some pastel colored cards to my collection. Earlier this year, I made some cards with this beautiful paper pad from Michael's. I loved it so much, I just had to see if I could use it for Valentine's and they look great to me.

  • Recollections Paper is from Michael's 6x6 paper pad called "Blush and Mint." 
  • Flowers made with my Spellbinders scalloped circles. 

Take a look! Do you feel the love? LOL!

Cards are 5x7 in size. See the heart in the center? Love that idea!


Thanks for stopping by and have a nice day!
