Graduation Card

I made this card for my Cousin's son. Hard to believe he is graduating from High School already. Boy does time fly. :) It was easy to put together. I used DP from the Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby, the cap is a $1 stamp that I got at Michael's, I think it is from Hampton Art, but not sure. I colored the cap in used Prisma pencils and baby oil and cut it out and popped it up with the pop dot. Fairly simple. It is really hot here so we will be doing things indoors I think. I need to start on teachers gifts. I will post them as a soon as I get them done.

I finally made some cards. It has been awhile. This is card sketch 175 from Splitcoast. These were really easy and quick to put to together. I stamped the Daisy in Black Stazon on watercolor paper. Colored it in with chalk pencils and used a blender pen to blend.

Craft Area

Here are some pictures of my craft area. It isn't big but it is my little slice of Heaven. :) I finally got it all cleaned and organized so that I could take pictures. My table is actually a cutting table that Richard got my at Joann's. I love it, it has lots of open space. The ink holder is an old cassette tape holder that we had laying around the house so I decided to recycle it along with the T.V. stand that sits on the side of my table. The area is supposed to be a sitting area, but I think it is better as a craft area. LOL The big cabinet is one of those that you are supposed to use in a garage but we thought it would work really good as a craft cabinet, it holds a lot of stuff. Which is good as I have a lot of stuff, just ask DH he says that I have a "mini" Michael's up there. LOL The wall opposite my table is where I hang all the kids art work that they make for me, except for my cloud that my DS made me it sits on the wall in front of me. That is where he wanted me to put it.

Thought y'all might like to see a picture of our garden. We have tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, green peppers, zucchini, cucumber, carrots and I have a small herb garden in there. Everything is growing pretty good except the green peppers, they are looking a little on the wilted side, I hope they will perk back up. But we will see, this is the first year we have had them. We planted everything else but the herb garden, and it really did well.


I made this card along time ago, but found the picture on the computer. I used SU's Gladsome Garden and I can't remember where the Hello stamp is from. It was a very easy card to do. I used DMC floss to do the stitches. I am going to have to try and make a few more. It was one of the first cards that I ever made. I cased the card from an issue of Papercrafts Magazine.


These are the Valentines that the kids took to their parties at School. We had a lot of fun making them. I used the Avery Labels on the Hershey's nuggets, they fit perfectly around them. I used $1 stamps from Michael's and the kids colored them in. I know it is well past Valentines day but I had this picture on the computer so I thought I would just add here. :)

Ribbon Holder

This is the ribbon holder that DH made for me. He used an old pallet from work. I just need to paint it. I will be able to put lots of ribbon on it. As you can see I still have room for lots more. :)


Hello, I have decided to try my hand at blogging. :) I am going to start off with posting pictures of the garden journal that I made for my Mother-in-Law. She really loved it. It was a lot of fun to make. I used one of the $1 journal books that you can find at Michael's. Thanks for looking.
