This is for anyone that wants to make fast cards..

and I think they could be Christmas--or anything. A great way to get rid of scraps and this is a pix I promised to send--here it is Shelly!!!!

Well, I think these are the last of the cards I've got made...six new posts!!!!!

Made these two almost opposites--love the browns and pinks.

These are from the Pagoda cartridge page 52. I didn't realize how pretty this would turn out. I always like to have a few Sympathy cards on hand and just realized I had a 'With Sympathy' stamp.

Well, that's my last set of cards I've done recently. I'll try and keep up now. Going to do somemore Christmas card--have a birthday card I need to do for a niece and of coarse my hubby of almost 39 years anniversay card (Dec 4th!) He is a special person to put up with me that long!!!

I have missed posting, but making cards and keeping up a blog is a lot of work!

Hugs to all!!!

I love this snowman...

with the hat down over his eyes. It's from the solutions cartridge Christmas Cards. I love making those cards!!!

Made two of these....

I just loved the saying--next time I think I'll use a print on the little birdie's body! I loved the saying. Used the Tags, bags, boxes and more cartridge for the 'holder' of the saying on the front. Put some Stickles on the rain drops and used the shadow and a very little dimentional to pop them up. Printed the sayings out on the computer. The cartridge was '3 Birds on Parade'--one of my new favorites. Used the bird on page 30. Used larges pop dots on the bird.

I sent one to a friend that had to have her chest (ribs) wired back together are they came apart from surgery of a bi-pass last year. Hope she liked it!!!

Just made this one....

in case I hear of a friend getting sick. You always need one around.

This is from the Doodlecharm cartridge. The jar and 'stick' are on page 95. The 'bug' is from the same cartridge on page 92. I printed the sayings off on the computer.

I made one similar before.....

but it was for a Navy guy. This one is for a retired Army guy that's a good friend of Terry's. He's got a birthday coming up, and has had a hard year, so Terry wanted to give him a card.

I used the Stand and Salute cartridge. Terry had come up with the sayings--he's old infintry, told me to trust him. So I do. I have to get going on an Anniversary card for him--we got 39 coming up on the 4th of Dec.

I have been busy.....

guess I'll start posting some of my pix.

A lady that Terry worked with years ago in St. Louis, before they closed the base and most of us moved to the Huntsville, Alabama area, is going to retire. So I made her this card.

I got a new Martha Stewart punch that makes the 'lacey look'. I love it and have been punching all different colors so I would have them ready. I love her punches, they are easy to punch. I have arthritis and have trouble with some of them.

I used the butterflies on the Paisley cartridge on page 48. I think I cut the flower at 3" and the butterflies at 1" on the front and 3/4" on the inside. I used the flower on page 53 on the Pagoda cartridge.

I had a Celebrate stamp that I used on the front and finished it with a sentiment I printed off on the computer.

I love the pink and brown together.

Birthday cards....

I bought a set of Justrite stamps and here is a sample on two birthday cards. Was going to try and use the center point on the Cricut Expression--but way too hard. I bought two punches--on 1 3/4 inch and one 2 1/4 inch. These are much better. I have two boards--one reg and one large.

for a wonderful father-in-law and one for a wonderful brother-in-law!
