Welcome to my wacky world. I call it that because sometimes I feel like I am off in my own world. As the saying on one of my stamps and
my fridge magnet says "I know i'm in my own little world. It's OK they know me here."

Here you will learn a little about me and my life. Like my marriages, my critters and my hobbies. I love taking photos. so along the way there might be alot of photos.My life is full of ups and downs, more often the downs. I just try to keep on a happy face. Doesnt always work when you suffer from anxiety and depression. But I still always manage to keep my Bubbly little personality.

Stampin Up Stamp Club

Well today was my monthly Stampin Up Club meeting.  We made 2 different cards.  We had the choice of making 1 card and 1 scrapbook page.  however I did the cards.  I just never seem to sit down and go through my photos let alone print my photos.  LOL!  It’s been a year and I still haven’t printed our wedding photos.  Smile

TGEDC3476his first card was made using the Bliss stamp set.  We did it as a thank you card.  However I’m sure the general idea would work for any kind of card.  I love the simple black and white technique.  We used the craft white ink pad.  Which sits on the top of the paper and takes a few moments to dry so it would work perfect for embossing.  You can also take chalk over it and it has a muted look to the image.  That would be a great way to enhance this card with a lil color.  In fact if it all comes in time for my Color Swap to be due I just might use that idea for my Black with a vibrant color.  Now I just have to get the chalk.  LOL!  I used to have some but never used the stuff.  Now that I have a use for it, I don’t have it no more.  Sad smile

This is the second card we did.  We took a piece of copy paper and glued 12 -- 1 1/4” squares onto it then put it through the big die.  GEDC3475It made this great quilting look to it.  Then we took two little flower punchs and adhered a pearl to the center and curled up the edges.  It’s hard to tell there is 2 there.  Then we chose the type of sentiment on the front we wanted.  the display was Wonderful Mother, but since 1 of my Secret Sisters likes quilting I figured I’d do Wonderful friend so I can send it to her.  Pretty snazzy I think.
