Bird Card in Cream & Green

I woke up at 3:00AM this morning.  I got out of bed at 3:45AM when I was still wide awake.  I did what things I would do every morning before work, and was ready early.  I really love the Cricut Solutions Home Accent Cartridge and wanted to use an embossing folder.  So I picked out a favorite - a bird - from both and paper that would compliment them.  Here's what I came up with in 30 minutes.

Happy Birthday Card for Boss

So, when it's your boss' birthday and you need to keep it professionally courteous, what would you do?  Let me put it another way: if he wasn't your boss and you wouldn't give him a card for his birthday but because he is your boss you have to, NOW what would you do?  This is what I did:  I made a card for everyone to sign! Chances are my co-workers feel the same way I do. LOL

It's Black and White - My Valentine

I saw on someone's blog a black, white, and grey challenge.  Even though I don't remember where I saw it, I'm just going to post my card.

I found the site!  Crafting with Cristina's Black, White and Grey Challenge

A Little Challenge with my BFF!

I entered this card in Always Crafting's Whimsical Wednesday Challenge on 2/16.  The color challenge is from a picture she has posted on her blogsite.  It has the colors I used for this card.  Check it out.

Get Well

When I started making cards, my husband was in need of a Get Well Card.

My husband got better, and I added his card to my gallery! LOL  Kimbo

Love Card

Just another Love card.

Thanks for visiting my blogsite.

For a Hospitalized Friend

A dear friend of mine suffered a brain aneurysm last week and is still hospitalized.  I made this card with a design I know she'll appreciate because she loves canaries, and I love birds.  I didn't make it a get well card because it just didn't seem appropriate.  I made a thinking of you card and wished her encouragement and wrote her a poem.

Please pray for my friend.  She actually is more than a friend, I was engaged to her son when he died in an automobile accident in 1990.  She's still my Mom Dunn.

My First Post

Hello, and welcome to my blog.  I love to craft, and right now I'm paper-crafting.  Although this isn't the first card I have ever made it is my first posted card.  Tell me what you think.  I'd love your feedback and constructive criticism.  If I inspire you, I'd like to know it and see your work too.  Thanks for viewing my blog.  We'll blog later.  Kimbo
