The process of unpacking is much more difficult than I thought possible.  Although the house has the same square footage, it has more problems with storage than we had guessed.  I'm still working on seperating the necessary from the stuff that will have to go.  Garage Sale and St. Vincent De Paul time.  I will be back as soon as I can get out of what looks like hoarder heaven.  LOL, the only creative outlet I have at the moment is the internet, which is not as satisfying as I thought it might be.

I want to apologize for my long absence.  I have moved my residence, and just after getting all my stuff into the house, and prior to unpacking, my mother got very ill.  She was put on hospice, and I spent as much time with her as I physically could.  I only left to sleep and occassionally to eat, as the nursing home provided me with most meals.  It was a blessedly quick process for her.  It was also a peaceful process thanks to the wonderful people at Bridge Hospice, in Ohio.  I will be needing my art to help heal my mind after this process, and I will be back to creating by next week. Kind regards.

I had so much fun with this card, I used my cricut, a new stamp, my computer, my new Studio Acrylic Paints, my new I am Roses neutral rose buds, and a cute, cute stamp from A Day of Daisies.  It has been sooooo cold here, I decided to concentrate on a warmer thought, like spring.  I love this little fairy, and she is so tiny compared to the cherries she is leaning on, that I decided to gound her on a tree branch.  I hope you enjoy.

Walking, well Rolling, in a Winter Wonderland

I just had a blast creating this, after I got the Imagine Calibrated properly.  Calibration is really a frustrating experience for me, especially when I forget the you don't go to a higher number to increase when you are in the negative numbers.  Yes! I did that, and could not for the life of me figure out why it kepts getting worse instead of better.  Reread the directions multiple times.  Decided to take a nap, and after the nap it dawned on me what was going on, and we fixed it, as you can see. LOL  I just love these snowmen, and have used them a lot.  This whole design is from the Snow Angel Cricut Imagine Cartridge, including the card background.  Hope you enjoy.

Valentine for Hubbis

This is one of those cards that ya couldn't get enough on, and then all of a sudden it was almost too much.  I decided to stop here.  I had an amazingly bad experience with my red spray glitter.  :(  I broke the bottle sprayer, and I really wanted to use it here.  I ended up using some gold that was OK, but not what I really wanted to use.  Anyway, I'm giving this to my Hubby for V day.  However, I wanted to use it in  a couple of challenges.


Stamp: Outlines Rubber Stamps, Digital Greeting: Neumann Studio, Flowers: Petaloo & Hobby Lobby spray, Lace: Paper Studio.  Glimmer Mist gives us the shiny, Spellbinders gives us the circle sentiment shapes.

Punk's House

This is three digis from Make It Crafty, that I layered using Photoshop.  The paper background is a digi paper that I picked up from Stitchy Bear.  I made the label in Photoshop and cut the background label with my Spellbinders die.

Medallion Flower

I used a digital image and made a layered flower from it.  I just love the way this turned out.  I used Copic to color it.  Such a lovely image.
