Happy Birthday!

Everyone needs a Birthday card now and again including me so I thought I better get busy, I did this one in the heat of that day and escaped down into my much cooler craft room.  Hope everyone is doing well.  I have entered this card in Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge

Garden Girl

I dressed up this Journal or notebook with this little Girl in the Garden.  She is layered a few times to give her extra dimension.  Around the papers it was sewn and I placed a paper doily under her and added some lace and baby blue half pearls.  Thank you for stopping by, Jane

Jasmine Princess Layout

I tried my hand at this Princess Layout - this took days, actually probably on my table for a few weeks.   Hope you are enjoying your summer, I have slowed down my crafting some to enjoy it with family and friends.  Take care, Jane

Family Camping Album

Are you a camping family, been out camping yet?  I have and am going to go again.  We also like to  hike and Geocache while out in the wilderness, OK, that would be a State Park!  It's a fun thing to do and you get your exercise in as a bonus.   This album has some really great stuff in it, and Sittin' around that CAMPFIRE and telling stories and eating S'mores, well, that is enjoying the simple things.  Hope all is well my friends.  Jane

I have it for sale in my esty shop as well if you want to view more of the photos.  Tp access my esty. see the box off to the left.  Thanks Folks and HAPPY MAY DAY!  Jane

Seeing Double? Like in Twins double?

My twin nieces are both expecting boy babies very shortly and I decided to make them some cards up.  I did decide to offer them on ebay first to anyone wanting to greet an arrival of an infant boy and I can always make more cards if a person buys either one.  I was really worried HOW the brown and lavender one would look like but I think that is my favorite of the two of them.  Sometimes you just don't know till it is all put together!

Here I am on ebay if you want to see even more of the photos then what I am showcasing here.

There you have them, LOL.  Took me a few minutes of thinking time to figure out how I wanted to add all the ribbon on the top of the card but I think the effort was worth it.    Hope you are all well my blogging friends, Jane

Mother's Day card

I found this verse and thought how fitting this was, and sadly it is the truth. So, have any of you thought of Mother's day yet?

This is one of my newest cards, I am behind in posting them here. I have this on auction on ebay and it has hit 'the pulse' my first time on there EVER but I hope that it will not be my last. I love the colors and sewing on this Easel card.

Thank you all for stopping by, have a fabulous week!! Jane

Kitty Princess

Nope, my Kitties don't look like this, I have a feeling even if they were white they would be full little gray dust Bunnies! I have not posted a Kitty Cat card in quite a while, what has taken me so long? They are one of my favorite subjects and many of my siblings are cat lovers, we have seven between us and with the exception of one sibling that doesn't have any, we all think she was adopted. She's so funny when she comes over that she makes sure she hangs her coat up and puts her shoes in the closet. You all KNOW what those pesky kitties do to a new visitors coat if it is left out, yep, a new bed.

It's Spring ahead today! Why am I still up? The winter went so slow so why I am shocked that it is already Mid March? Ummmm... Still have mounds of snow in Minnesota but hoping the next few weeks will take care of that and looking forward to getting outside and doing some walking instead of on my threadmill. Take care my blogging friends, Jane

Valentine's Cupid

I want to show you something I put together for Valentine's day, a mini-album for Valentines.  Isn't it fun with all those beautiful reds and pinks and whites and next to giving all our Sweethearts a Valentine, what can be better other than Chocolates?  I am just getting started on Valentines and shopping for paper confections is a favorite of mine, at least that has no calories.  Keep tuned, I have already got my next creation in my head and on the craft table!!  
Hope all is well with my Blogging friends and if I haven't wished you a Fabulous 2011, I wish you all one now.  Many blessings in the coming year to you and yours, Jane
