Hello Stampers!
I am still here. I am so sorry that I have not posted in a couple of weeks. Things have been crazy.
My grandmother has become bed ridden and does not communicate with me anymore. So I have been trying to emotionally cope with that this last week. I have also been organizing closets, and rooms the last week just to stay busy. So I apologize for not being more consistent in posting---HOWEVER, Lord willing I will have some fall cards to show you tonight or tomorrow that I have been working on for a swap.


Everyone take care and remember to make something for yourself and to tell someone special that you LOVE them.

See You All Soon!!!!
Blessings til next time...

We have had some good days here. My grandmother is having a good day today. Allie is on spring break so we have been cleaning out closets, and she has been cleaning her room (very slowly).
I wanted to share a picture of her that I took on Easter Morning on her way to church with friends. She is my baby that has grown up to a beautiful young lady...

I took this pic in front of our neighbors house due to their beautiful flowers. This is also the same outfit that she will where to my sisters wedding next weekend. My pretty little girl!! I love her so!
Okay---now to cards. Here are some cards that I made for a Mother's Day Swap that I am doing. This is the one that I am sending into the swap. I think it turned out so cute!
This card is is the same, just with different ribbon...due to using a whole roll of the SAB certainly celery ribbon. I made extra Mother's Day Cards for my mom and a few friends that I send Mothers day cards to.
Recipe for Mother's Day Cards (all supplies SU)

Hello Stampers!
I hope this finds all of you having a Happy Easter!
I wanted to show you want I have been working on this week. I have had so much fun making this baskets. I got the pattern from here at

Here is a basket that I have candy and eggs in for a friend.

Here is a pic of three different ones I made. I used the DP from the SAB catalog. I made a total of nine. I think they are as cute as can be.
Also this week I joined a RSVP pen swap. Here are the two pens I made for the swap. I add a tag to the pens to label.

Recipe: (pen on left)
DP: pink flamingo (SU)
ribbon: turquoise ribbon (SU)
Recipe: (pen on right)
DP: paper from Hobby Lobby
Ribbon: pink ribbon from Michael's
To place the DP inside the pen, cut the paper to 2w x 31/4L. Roll it around the ink barrel and slide the paper and the ink pen back inside the holder and place the bottom back on your pen. Tie ribbon around the pen top. Now your pen is complete. This makes a great quick gift.
Hope everyone has a Happy Easter and I will see you soon! Remember to make something special for yourself!
Happy Stampin and Blessings til next time!

Hello Stampers,
I am sad to say that I do not have anything to show you today. I have accomplished alot, I just forgot to take a picture of them before I gave them away. In about 4-5 hours I made a baby door hanger (babies sleeping), 2 8x8 scrapbooks, 2 gift bags and 2 cards for the youth pastor and his wife at our church. They had twin boys in February, and I am ashamed to say that I am just now getting their gift to them. I am so proud of the door hanger that I made, it was so pretty!
Now I just have a huge mess to clean up and see what my next project will be.

I did finish my Easter cards!!! This is the first time in years that I have finished my cards a day or two before the holiday. I also made the little chick images for some swaps that I am doing.
I guess once I get my mess cleaned up I will make some graduation cards and mothers day cards.

I hope yall are having a Great Evening. Remember to make time for yourself and make something pretty for yourself!

Blessing til next time!
Happy Stampin,
