Have a card to post, but it is on its way to my February OCS in another state, so I need to wait a few days before posting just in case she happens to look in on me. Over the weekend I finally started looking for all the card fronts I have either received personally or the ones my friend, who is a former SU Demo, gave me a long time ago. Rather then having them sitting in a box or album I decided to look through them and see if I could put them on a base card and send to "Operation Write Home". I am happy to say that has been accomplished, made some room and have sent them on to some most deserving service people to use. Usually my sorority gals help with this. So now wait until I tell them they have to start doing their own images, etc. LOL I know they will pitch in as this is one of our annual service projects for our chapter. If I had a camera I would take some pics of a few of them. I don't want to ask my son to set them all up since he is working 12 hour days again. Just went back to work from a three week lay off and another long lay off is coming up at the end of May. This is really hurting, plus my not having a job yet. Yeah, I know things are tough all over and there are people worse off then us, we are just bless that at least two of the three living in this home still have some kind of a job. Well enough rambling for now, I will post again for sure when I think my card has been received.

Hope all you Floridians have been enjoying our great sunny days this week. We certainly waited for it long enough. Be save, be happy.

Hi all. I bought a punch a few years ago when I had just started card making and the friend, who was an avid card maker, made fun of me for buying a punch she said there was nothing I could make using it. I told her then she didn't know what the punch looked like to me. I found a card I did back then. See if you think I made good use of the punch or not. Used silver cardstock for the punch item.

The punch is from the Nostalgiques collection from EK Success. All cardstock is from SU. I do not remember if the designer paper is SU or not.

Late St. Paddy's Day

Yes, I am late with my green positng. I am not real happy with this card, but here it is anyway. I know a lot of you love doing 6 X 6 cards, but they seem to be too much card for me to handle. I have had several functions for sorority lately and that seems to be taking up my time, should calm down after this month.

Cardstock & DSP - Michael's open stock

Scalloped Oval - Sizzix Die on my Cuttlebug

Shamrock - Cut out and used Verafine ink and dipped in green

embossing powder

A tent card - first try on this card

There you have it. Everyone have a great weekend!!

Three Cards

The first card is the card I received from our dear friend Curt of Curt's World, aren't you jealous. Thank you so much Curt for thinking of me I will treasure it!
The second card is the card I received from my February OCS through Terri. It is on lovely shinney cardstock and don't you love the ribbon and shamrock. Thank you Mary C.
The third card is a card I made for the ABC Christmas Challenge. We are to use red, green and a fairy, if no fairy we could use a gnome. Someone had this type of card on their website and I am sorry I do not remember who. It is a pull up card that lays out flat. It was fun to make, so thanks to whomever's site I saw it on. If I run across it in my meanderings I will give you credit.
My camera has died and my son took the pics for me, not so great, but at least I had something to post. Just finishing up a St. Paddy's Day and hope he will agree try again for me, or let me take the picture. He is very guarded about letting anyone use any electronic, computer, tools, you name it. Guess that really is a good idea considering the cost to replace. Well have a great week and I will try to post my Irish soon.

It had been my intention to post three cards today, but when I went out to take the pictures my camera wants new batteries again. I take them out after each use and really don't use the camera much any more except for cards, OR if I am lucky enough to go on vacation. So I really don't know if it is the batteries or my camera is dying. So now I have to wait until I get new batteries. Thanks to those who have visited me, it's no fun to blog unless people drop by and leave a comment or two once in awhile. I know I do not blog everyday, nor do I post pics everyday, but I work with what I can do. I do spend a lot of time checking out everyone else's blogs though! So until I get the camera fixed this will have to do.
