Inspired by Music!!

It's a rainy day here in Vancouver, WA so I've been listening to music and making cards! Soo inspired by the music I'm listening to - it soothes the soul!! That and the sound of the rain....;)

Waterfall Card

With Mother's Day in My Mind

I have entered this card in a Link-Up Party. If you like it, vote for it - if you'd like to join in the fun, see the link below and have fun!!
I've had these butterfly stickers for a long time now, and finally have found a way to use them. I'm starting early on Mother's Day cards, not that I have a lot of Mother's...but there are some pretty special ladies in my life that deserve some honor even though they may not be my mother I consider them Mother's of the Earth.

I have entered this card in a Link-up party - here is the link if you would like to enter as well:

3-D Castle

As promised! It was pretty easy, the hardest part was creating the tops for the towers - I had to figure out the folds but once I got that figured out it was pretty easy. I did it in white cause I didn't want to screw it up and waste pretty paper!

More Easter Cards

Rock Princess Cartridge

Rock Princess is a great cartridge! I orignally got it for my grand-daughter but she's only 3 and the images are much too old for her so I ended up getting Once Upon a Princess as well. They both are favorite cartridges of mine. Here are a few cards I made using the Rock Princess cartridge.

I'm going to make the3-d castle that's on Once Upon a Princess today and I'll post that tomorrow! In the meantime, enjoy the Rock to your Princess!!

Blinged out Rose for Spring!

I got the challenge wrong so I made another project - this time a card. I've had this design in my head for a while now and this was the perfect reason to finally make it!

My Son's Wedding

This is a scrapbook page I made for my son's wedding. I used the flowers and the candy that was on the tables as embellishments. He got married almost 2-years ago. About time I did a page for his beautiful wedding finally. More pages to come! I am posting this one for a challenge.

Thank you Cards

I decided I needed to send out some Thank you's to some people who have been helping me through kinda a rough time. They aren't spectacular, but I'm slowly improving. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

Pop-Up Card

This is the card I made for my grandkids. When you open the card a swirly pops up. I glued 4-leaf clovers to the swirly to make it fun.

St. Patrick's Day

I'm Irish so St. Patrick's Day is special to my heart. I made this card for my daughter, who also is quite proud of her Irish heritage. I also made card for my Grandkids but their cards have a pop-up feature that I'm not finished with cause the front is all blinged out and needs to dry before I can do the pop-up part. I'll post that tomorrow.

Pretty Card

It's been a while since I posted anything, but now I have a camera of my own so I'll be able to post more often! I did this card for a friend's 50th Birthday....afterall, age is just a number!
