Thank you so much for your encouraging comments on my previous rolodex cards. I really appreciate them. So, here is my third card (I'm making 4 different ones). It is very simple. I thought the papers and patterns did not need too much help.

Now I have to come up with No. 4. I have absolutely nothing going for this one yet!

Enjoy your day!!

Can you believe me posting twice in one day? I've got you used to posting once a week or so, but today is the exception. Can't promise that I will be able to do this often!! I AM THE SLOWEST CARDMAKER EVER IMO!!! I know Ann thinks she holds this title, but I disagree with her, as she posts more often then I do. LOL!

I'm not exactly sure what to think of this rolodex card. I borrowed this set from a friend, but after I stamped it, I just was not sure what to do with it. So here it is, and I would love to hear your opinion.


I joined another Rolodex Scripture swap and this is one of my cards. I love all the different varieties that the ladies come up with and the different verses. So many great verses.

The details:

Verse stamp CHF
DP is SU Delicate dots, textured with one of the SU texture plates
Square Nestabilities in Brocade Blue
The crochet flower is hand made by myself with a little ribbon.

Thank you for your great comments. Love reading them. They totally make my day!!!

Hi there,

Here is my version of SCS TLC215. It has become quite a popular card. It took me forever to complete mine. Not that it is hard to make at all, but unfortunately I had to make it in pieces. A little bit here and there. I needed a Thank You card, so that is what I made it for.

I used the SU TIME WELL SPENT retired hostess set for the flowers. I colored them with watercolor pencils.
The dp is some paper I got at Costco a long time ago. I combined it with SU Pumpkin? (My catalog is missing)

I know this is quite a simple card, and I should not even bother to post it. But I know there are a few faithful friends that come by and I want to Thank you for it too. So consider this a THANK YOU card for keeping up with me!!

Come back again!!

I hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Easter!!

This is the Easter card I made for family and close friends and I want to share it with you too.
When I saw this set used by several great stampers from the Our Daily Bread gallery, I knew this was the one I needed to have for my Easter card. My excuse also was that I never got around to making Christmas cards, so I was going to make Easter cards as these 2 celebrations are totally linked to each other: the birth, death and resurrection of our Saviour Christ Jesus. Can't celebrate one without the other.

I really had fun coming up with this card. So here is how I made it:
The cardstock color is SU So Saffron. I textured it with the SU textures diamond shape in the cuttlebug. It took me awhile to come up with the right sandwich to get a good texture. So here it is: A plate, texture plate, cardstock, 2 pieces of mating and the B plate. I know it is different than what I have seen others use, but this is what worked best for me.
The verse is gold embossed on Very Vanilla SU and a Nestabilities Label 2.
I stamped the flower with Stasz-On Timber Brown on Shimmery White SU and used the Watercolor pencils to color it. For an extra embellishment I added 3 gold brads.

I have a terrible head cold, so I am not planning on doing anything big today, except for coming up with an idea for supper and stamping!!

Thank you for coming by and leaving your comments!!
Hope to see you around soon again.
