Happy New Years 2017....

Wishing each of my sweet blogger friends a Happy New Year and the best of everything in 2017!

I took down my Christmas house decorations today and put up this sweet little wreath.  I wanted to share this werath with you.  Actually it was a wreath I had already and with the hot sun it totally was destroyed it during the summer months.  It needed a little perk up!
 So I took the old wreath and remade it once again.  I removed all the old worn out and faded wreath greenery.  I purchased new greenery and used the existing twigs underneath to adhere the new items.

I bought pretty ribbon and made a bow to attach as well.  My house it decorated in coastal design so I wanted another coastal wreath to co-inside with the inside decor.
Since I live in a warmer climate and have warm temps almost year round I felt spring coming in the air soon and have already put it up where the old wreath hung and took down the pretty Christmas wreath that was there for the holidays. 

Hope you all enjoyed the Christmas holidays and are looking forward to the New Year?

2016 Christmas Card....

           Transparent Christmas Decor with Bells PNG Clipart

Two years ago I made a similar card and decided to do it again but add a bit more touches with pine leaves and red sequence with a little crystal glitter glue in center of each sequence.  I always make at least 40 of them and send them out to friends and some family members each year.  Here is my finished product.

In the beginning stage below.  Most of you may know this technique I used where you take wide packing tape and sprinkle fine glitter dust and burnish it all over all over the tape.  You then take a stamped item of anything you like to place beneath it.  Here I used my musical stamp I had and stamped it on white paper and placed it underneath of the tape.

I then took a piece of paper, cut to card size and cut a hole in the center of it.  I then ran it through my Big Shot with my musical embossing folder and placed and taped my small musical stamp and glitter tape beneath the large musical paper hole.

The picture really doesn't show how pretty the sparkling musical bulb looks in real life. As you can see I had a production line going.  However,  I really worked on them in different stages.  I usually start my Christmas cards in the summer and work on them as I feel like.  I really hate being rushed and at Christmas time we have so many things to prepare for.  

Here you can see I added the pine needles here with my Martha Stewart punch I've had for ages.

Here is how the Christmas bulb I created looks close up.  If you look hard you can see the pretty sparkling glitter inside the bulb.  During mail transit I'm afraid the sequence may have feel off inside the envelope.  I had trouble with the glue.  Probably not sticky enough?  So if your reading this and your one of my friends/family that received a card, I hope the sequence was still in tact?

Here is the computer generated verse I put inside each card.  I also add my husband and my name to the inside so they almost look as if they were sent for engraving. I also add a religious verse inside  my cards each year because we know "Jesus it the reason for Christmas".

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

Beth's Birthday Card...

A few months ago it was my daughter-in-law Beth's birthday and I wanted a very feminine card to make and give her. Pink and green always look so pretty together.  Being quite thick with the flower embellishments I was able to give it to her in person when they both came to visit with us.  I love it when my children decide to come and visit with us since we live in different states.

I used a few of my homemade flowers I had and attached them to the body and worked around it to add more interest.  Also, inserting a small key and heart as a symbol of my love to her. 

Giving a little close up to help see the flowers and embellishments together. 

As summer ends and fall begins I hope that you are enjoying a breath of fresh air?
Thanks for stopping!

Beth's Shower Card....

Back in April there was a bridal shower for my dear daughter-in-law Beth.  She is very feminine young lady and most girly girls love pretty high heals under their wedding dresses.  So I thought this might be fitting for a shower?

After purchasing this shoe die cut I decided I'd use it for Beth's shower card.  I didn't have much time to make her a petty shower card (as health problems have been plaguing me down).  Sometime ago I made a gorgeous umbrella card (click link to see it) for someone to purchase from me .  I only wished I had, more time and felt better to make a similar one for her.  

Those glamorous little rhinestones are multicolored stick on's and just added enough bling - bling to give it some sparkle and glam against the white embossed background.

My Son's Wedding Card....

My son was married recently and I'm finally getting around to posting his card I made them.
We love our new daughter-in-law and know they will share many happy years together.  It was a memorable day for them. 

I put extra time into this one and enjoyed every minute of it.  There isn't anything sweeter than a wedding card to make.  I love all the touches of lace, pearls and glitter reminding me of the feminine style a wedding usually carries.  Their ceremony took place outside at a beautiful lake over looking the shore as they repeated their vows.  The weather, the food and fun was perfect for a June wedding.  

Here is the beautiful verse I found on line for free and added a few extra words to personalize it a bit more.  

Here is the envelope that I embossed to go along with this pretty card.  Thanks for stopping and have a happy week.
