For Jenny

A card I made for a dear friend who is not feeling very well. I hope this puts a smile on her face for a second or two. I actually have not seen her since we were 13 years old but we have stayed in contact over the years and I am going to visit her next June. We were kids last time we saw each other and now we have grandbabies!!! Where did that time go!! Thank you for visiting...have a great week.

My daughter and Grand Daughter

Just a picture I snapped in the backyard. Both girls happened to be in a dress. I entered this in a challenge over at lets get shabby but there is so much talent over there!!  This was probably my 5th attempt at the shabby look.

You Will Always Be My Little Girl

A layout I did of my daughter. This was probably the second attempt of shabby I tried. Still have a long way to go!! But my fav color so I really did have fun with this one.

Vintage card

This is a card I made for a dear friend, laceykat. I love making the vintage cards. Did a little cut out on this and I just love distressing, tearing and inking.

Little Mary

This layout is of my Mom when she was a year old which was in 1924. I did enter the in the Heritage challenge over at and actually tied for first. I felt pretty good about that. Did a lot of cutting again, I like to add that to my layouts. I am still learning the vintage -- shabby way of things but I have found I love that style and have a hard time going back to what I use to do. Thank you for looking!!


Well I am trying to figure out just exactly how to get around in here. So I thought I would try and upload some images. I made a layout of a dog we use to have and thought I'd share it. I did a lot of fussy cutting on this. The entire bone swirl...yes each bone was cut out. The Pug dog was from a dog book and so was the fox. The feathers are actually from our chickens!!

New "Grab Bags" in the store..
