A Few cards I made!

Thanks for Stopping By!

A little update

and one more...

A few of you may have been wondering about my absence. Well I'm alive, in a lot of pain, but thank God alive! The Fibromyalgia etc... has been getting the best of me, but I'm trying to fight back a little at a time! I've made a few more cards, but they were either mailed or given away before I took photos. This hobby is so hard when you are shaky all the time!

Here's Cameron now! He's a bit tired if you can't tell. He was riding his bike for a loooong time!

Remember that little kitten, well she's no so little anymore and she's a SPAZ! LOL!
Here's another kitty, Garfield, he showed up on our porch one day and hasn't left since! Poor thing got bit on the leg by another animal and couldn't walk on his leg. So, we got him fixed and fixed up and now he has a loving home!

Thanks for Stopping By!

A little more love...

TSC0206 - Casing Princess Helena

For this week's challenge all the sistah's names were put in and Shirt's husband picked misshelenstamps. Congratulations buddy you have an awesome gallery and if I had some of the gorgeous stones you have I might have cased a different card, but I doubt it because although I love all of your work, this is the only one that made me laugh until I almost peed myself!! hehe!!

You can see the card I cased here:

Where's my ribbon!!

Thanks for Stopping By!

Heard you were a little dragon...

For TSC0102, the challenge was to use animal print, black, a punch and faux metal or metal embellishment.

This has been on my desk for a long time in different stages. Then I thought I was done, but realized I had to add metal (around bow) and a punch (little dragon pills spilled all over the floor and if he doesn't take them watch out if he sneezes).

Thanks for Stopping By!
