Window cut out card!

Hi Everyone!


Today I have a 3d ish window card for ya. My niece has a kidney stone and I made her a get well card to brighten her day. This is the first time making this card but I think that it turned out alright, I wish I had a punch that could have did the center but I guess free hand worked!

The pictures didn't turn out too well, but maybe you get the idea!
Thanks for viewing

I Got an award!

Lynda over at lynda's creative touches has awarded me with The stylish blogger award! 


It is such an honor to receive these awards. When I started my blog I never
 thought that I would ever have any followers, or did I think that I would 
inspire people. I just wanted a place to enter all the wonderful Challenges out there, but the more that I posted and received comments I felt more inspired and found wonderful inspiration in all of you!


Upon receiving this award I must thank the person who gave this to me and link it back to their blog and share 8 things about myself. Also, pass along the award to 8 other individuals that I have recently discovered and leave a comment so that they can pass along the recognition.

I have found so many deserving people over the last week. I wish I could give all of you one!
so here are the ones that I have chosen!

Scrappin C
Kathy
Rose
Debbie
Jen
Pattie
Zloe crafting
Paula

Please visit these wonderful ladies!

 Now to share 8 things about myself! 
~ I am a very determined sometimes stubborn person, tell me that I cant do something and I will prove you wrong
~ My favorite color is lime green. 
~ I love to cook, I want to be a chef one day
~ I love to take pictures, of everything but I take the most of Sunsets
~ Family is so important to me, I think you can have no material things in life, but still be the richest with the love of family
~ I don't own a Cricut (yet) I use my moms to create some of my cards
~I love butter pecan ice cream
~ I love Stars, anything stars.


So thank you so much Lynda for the award!

          The Easel card is a great card to make because it has a natural display feature!

          Recipe:
          for Base: cut card stock @ 6 1/4 by 9
          fold in half to create a top fold card and then score @ 2 1/4 from the bottom and fold to form "stand"

          For front: cut a card stock @ 6 1/4 by 4 1/2
            Glue to the 2 1/4 part of the base aligning the tops.

          The decorative papers are cut at 6 by 4 1/4
          and 5 1/2 by 3 3/4
          I used a pre-made tag enjoy tag and tied a ribbon to the opening
          I put small white eyelets in the corners 
          I add pre-cut fabric flower from memory makers and stick on gems
          to add some piazza!

           The Inside I used some green card stock and a clear sticker also from memory makers.




          Thanks for Joining us on this Birthday hop!

            Get Well Soon envelope card


            Hi Everyone! I hope that this post finds you all doing good. My husband and I have been sick for the last week (he was worse than me) but we are starting to feel better now. I am glad too because now I can get back to my crafting. YIPPY!

            Last week was not a terrible week as we welcomed two new babies to our family, A great nephew, Caden James, and a great niece, Alaya Naomi.

            They were born just hours apart and that was very exciting! Both babies and mommies are doing great…

            On a sadder note, my best friend's sister has a 1-month-old daughter and she is very sick right now with meningitis. She will have to be in the hospital for anywhere from 14-21 days. She is doing somewhat better as she receives IV's and they are trying to control her temperature. I decide to make her a get well soon card just to let them know that I am thinking of them and praying for her fast recovery.

            I made a envelope style card with a paper band to keep it closed.

            Here is what I came up with.









            All of the papers are from Wal-mart Colorbok packs

            The words were cut on the cricut at 3" cut to length

            I used a paper band to hold the card shut and stamped Hello on it and added 2 white brads.
            I hope that you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by! If you have any questions on how to make this type of card please let me know and I will try to help you as much as I can!

            3-D Delia card


            Hi Everyone!

            I hope that you are all doing well. My foot is feeling better and I am excited to get back to my card making.

            The project I have for you today is a 3-D Delia card that I made for my sister, who has been sick for the last couple of weeks. I found this card on YouTube, It would be hard for me to explain it as well as she does in the video so I have posted that for you here!


             Delia card video

            Here is my Card










             

            I think it turned out pretty good for my first time making it. I hope that you would all give this a try, because it is not that hard. 


            Have a wonderfully crafty day!
