Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend!

They are calling for another storm to hit us this weekend.  This will be the fourth Sunday in a row, so I am settling in for a long weekend in my craft room.  Tonight I started playing with Vellum and stamped this lovely JustRite sentiment on it and then had to decide how I wanted to feature it.

The inspiration we were given to follow is:

JRFC091 Inspiration

Well one thing led to another and this is what I came up with.


and here is a close-up view:


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you can come back and visit again soon!

Upright Diamond Fold Card

Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share with you a fun fancy-fold card which I have anxious to try.  Given our challenge theme this week is to create a Shaped card (anything but square) I thought I would give it a whirl and try to put my own little twist on it.


The card is called a Upright Diamond Fold Card and since I could only find instructions out there in Metric I have created my own and am sharing them with everyone.

Here is a closer view of the inside:


And, there is the list of dies used for this project:

B162 – Lace Corner Deco B
B248 – Hugs Mix and Match
B263 – Tags 4
B266 – Tiny Things With Wings
B280 – Orchid
DL128 – Two Of Hearts
DL238 – Sophie’s Heart Mini Doily
XM-8 – Oval Scalloped

You still have time so I hope you can fit in some “crafty” time over the next few days  to visit the challenge this week and put in your entry!  With your entry you will have a chance to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs!

Thank you so much for popping by today.  I do hope you enjoyed and can visit again soon.  I really love reading your comments, they brighten my day!!

Happy Birthday

Hi there everyone,

I’ve got a quick post tonight.  I remembered on the way home from work that I needed to make a card for a friend at work tomorrow.  I really need to start writing this stuff down so I don’t forget…   My memory is not what it used to be!  Oh well, here is what I was able to come up with.  I hope she likes it : )


I am entering this card in the following challenge:

Challenges 4 Everybody – Challenge #14 – Anything Goes

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and I hope you can come back and visit again soon!
