This card is 6 1/4 x 3 1/2. I decided to use my forgotten sizzix machine to cut out the flower. The paper I pulled from my scraps. The stamp is from Hero Arts. Hopefully this will put a smile on someone's face.

As I stated yesterday, my DH took me to several stamp stores in Seattle. We went to the Amuse store and I bought these two stamps. The black and white paper is from an 8 x 8 paper stack that I have had for sometime. I have so much paper - I can't remember where I got most of it. I just love paper and I keep on buying - bought some today as a matter of fact. My sister also called and said she had bought me some new Cuttlebug embossing plates - Can't wait to get those.


Flossie's Follies has introduced me to a new way of sending cards. You send the card and then at a later date you forward the embellishment. I received the card the other day and the flower today to add to it. What a clever idea. How neat would it be if you prepared several kits with the same supplies and mailed to different people to complete a card only with what was included. Now that is a challenge.

I made this card using the pad of paper I got at Hobby Lobby. The stamp is another $1 stamp from Michaels. Believe it or not, I do have other stamps. As a matter of fact, I did buy a couple of new stamps recently when I traveled with my DH to Seattle. I searched for stamps stores in the area before we left from Virginia. He put his GPS in the rental car and away we went. What a sweet guy.

Ok Flo Follies has tagged me and I guess I am suppose to tell you seven things about me -

1. I am a wife and mother of two children - 24 and 21
2. My sister gets me in trouble all the time by making me spend money on craft supplies
3. I love to laugh
4. My daughter is getting married on December 1
5. My sister is 12 years younger than I am but she looks older
6. I now own my own laptop
7. I went to DisneyWorld last December with my best friend, since 4th grade.

First I would like to thank those that made comments on my posts yesterday. It was very exciting. If you can't tell I am new at this. I need to learn how to add stampers to my blog, I have sent my sister and email (Pottsplace). I know she can help me. And I have been tagged. Do not know what to do with this will answer when I figure it all out.

I love to go to Michaels and look in the $1 bin. It is like going on a treasure hunt. I also like to make cards that are different sizes and shapes. So I bought the card sets and envelopes, for only $1.00, to see how I could alter them.

The stamps on both cards are Michaels $1 stamps. They make cute quick cards. As you can see, I also need to improve my photo techniques. Thanks for stopping by.

Joannes has new $ stamps. I was lucky to find them since the Joannes store in my hometown is just a small store and their inventory is very limited. I had to call my sister, Karen while there to see if she had the latest, I can't believe I was able to buy something she didn't already have. So I bought her a set and sent to her and a partial set for me, I didn't care for some of them. I wasn't sure if I was going to like them, so I had to try one out. The paper came from a pack that I bought at Hobby Lobby - it was bright and colorful - just right for wishing someone a happy birthday. I was also able to get the $ stamps on wood from Michaels on Saturday, Karen needed some of those too and she had already found the new set of Michaels clear stamps and I got them last week - so hopefully with all these new stamps I will be inspired to create! Hope someone besides Karen and Flo reads this - oh well.

Okay, so it has been awhile, but there has been much going on during the last couple of months and I am trying to get my creative juices running again. I love this bird - she makes me laugh. And my good friend Flo has been looking for her. I was fortunate to find the bird and sent it to her, but I had to make a card to send it in. Both cards are cute, but I chose the second one and sent her on the way and added the thank you stamp to the first and will keep that one to use later. My sister talked me into buying the Prismacolors and I am still learning how to work with those. I am not as computer savy as Flo and Karen but maybe after a while I will get there.
