Jade is a friend’s daughter who is graduating from high school and came over one day to make cards. She made one like this and my hubby and I both loved it so I made one for her. Thanks for looking.

I think this is the end of the cards that I made to donate to a friend in California. The patterned paper is from Accord Publishing the cardstock is by Recollections. The butterfly and flower are die cuts from Crafter’s Companion.
This last one uses bees I cut out of a patterned paper from the Accord Publishing The patterned papers on the outsides are by Basic Grey. The sentiment stamp by Stampabilities. It is stamped on a K and Co. label
Thanks for looking.
Lately, I haven't been thrilled with my blog. It feels like a mess. There aren't enough hours in the day to fix 3971 blog posts. I was hoping that the background change would get the fonts the same size. Nope! It didn't work. So, there are two options
1.) Continue pondering over it and wasting time re-doing every post since 2009.
2.)Stop worrying about it. Each day 15 people come to my blog.
I blog so my projects are all in one place. I like to look back at the cards and layouts I did in 2011. In fact, I started with didn't make cards at first. It was mostly scrapbooking and I have a lot of scrapbooking things to post. Off of my computer onto my blog. I will finish up with one of my quotes...

I used a Sizzix embossing folder on the green cardstock. I stamped and punched out a Stampin Up hexagon out of a lighter green cardstock. The hexagon fir perfectly in the largest opening. The bee stamp is also by Stampin Up. I did a sloppy fussy cut to fit in the opening. Then the next largest hexagon opened a placed the hexagon that the smallest hex provided when it cut out. That's a crazy explanation. Thanks for hanging in there with me. HAGD

The patterned paper is by My Mind’s Eye (background) and The Paper Loft (strips). The sentiment is a die by Spellbinders. I replaced the paper dot for with a dot for the “I” by Cloud 9. The label is made of chipboard and I painted it with Ranger’s gold distress paint and put Perfect Pearls on top of it. The leaf die is by Stampendous. The two leaves are unique for I cut one cut out of cardstock and one out of a wallpaper sample. Thanks for looking.
Happy Little Stamper challenge
Anything goes with dies

This is such a bright layout but the papers match the foam in the pit. The title is from my Cricut. The vellum sentiment is unknown. There are many scraps of paper. The blue/purple cardstock is from Craft Smith (Michael's). [Is it blue or is it purple? that is the question. lol]
The orange papers have a little more to them. The polka dot paper is by Papertrey Ink. The orange paper on the bottom row from left to right I have a feeling that the first paper has something on it. The second orange paper is dry embossed with little squares, like the foam in the pit. The last orange paper is stamped with a border stamp by Simon Says Stamp. It's a tone-on-tone looking thing. Thank you for stopping by.

My first card has strips of paper leftover from projects. Some of the manufacturers are My Mind's Eye, Colorbok, and Basic Grey. The white pieces of paper are probably patterned paper turned over. I do this a lot. For this card, I wanted to get out the Stampin Up wheel stamps. The camera stamp is from Tim Holtz and I colored it in with distress ink and water.
The Tag is by Basic Grey. The camera stamp and tiny stapler are both by Tim Holtz. The sentiment by Bo Bunny (?). The background stamp is by Stampin Up. The ribbon is from Michael's. I'll have more of these camera-stamped cards coming up. Thanks for looking
My second card is for a. Tag challenge at the The Male Room
You look Fabulous Given how old you are
This is the stamp I will use on the insides of the cards with cameras.

I have two more things.

This is another set of spring cards I made to donate to a senior center. The patterned paper is by Accord Publishing. The black cardstock is from Michael’s and the purple paper is from Studio G. The chipboard arrows were painted with Mr. Huey's paint. I can’t remember who makes the paint. To finish that landscape card I did something different and that I put patterned paper underneath each arrow. Before I shipped them out I saw this sticker and it was that something that this card needed. Thank you for stopping by.

Two things to note, I have shaky hands that jerk. <ClicK> The jerking hands has been a problem when I’ve pressed send before finishing or proofreading a text or message. <ClicK> We’re back. Point is, my hand didn’t jerk sending the ink cube flying across the embossed background and/or across the room landing ink pad side down on the carpet. Second, it’s amazing that I didn’t drop the ink cube on the embossed paper. Thanks so much for stopping by. I have cards and layouts to post but injuries have prohibited me from going downstairs to my supplies and my PC. I now understand why people give up crafting if they don’t have a dedicated room to do so. You get I your stuff out and then have to put it away for dinner. It’s really hard to get your craft on that way.

I’ve been nursing a few injuries, sprained ankle and bruised my butt when I fell straight down on it. I went to sit down on a new to me walker. I was told by my ex SIL, “you have to have a walker” AKA She wanted the walker out of her house. But really she was a hero for helping by giving it to me. It was the walker’s wheels that made me fall. You could say it walked away from me. I landed right on my ass. I’m not complaining but the two injuries make it hard to craft. Here are just some facts: 1. I’m a fall risk and I can’t go downstairs. 2. I can’t give a clear answer as to where the pain is in my ass-which makes me feel like a pain in the ass. 3. I want to stand up to take the pressure off of my butt pain. However, I want to sit down because of my ankle pain. The butt pain has won that competition and I’m standing. 4. Lastly, the topic on weather or not I should go to the doctor for the ass has been a hot debate. Anyway. I brought some up some half done projects and have been able to put some things together. This is one of them. Thanks for looking.
