Happy Halloween


This pumpkin is pieced and then embroidery is added for the face. The stippling is done in a metallic thread that is pre-programmed in my machine, as well as an outline stitch outlining the pumpkin face. Added a binding to finish. It is only about 9" x 11"

Birthday card

Sometimes I find a card that I like, maybe with favorite colors or just the shapes. This is one of those cards. Love black, white red or yellow combinations. Taking the idea and using what I have on hand I created this card. The "Happy Birthday" was a stamp and then mounted on red card stock. Used the Cuttlebug to emboss the cherries (with Stickles) and the saying. This is the inspiration for my card that is above. I did not have the cartridge that had the scallop circle or the ribbon. Love this card and the details that the Creator used!

Anniversary Cards

Looking through some of my papers, I came across this silver paper that was perfect for the anniversary cards. Simple but very effective letting the paper do the work. I still have white paper with silver specs from the wedding that I did not use then so it was a perfect compliment for this project. It was more difficult to cut the "happy" because it was delicate and the paper is heavier but they were cut twice with the Cricut. The Celebrate had a set of purchased hearts with a stone at the end of the word. The heart was pop dotted to add the dimension.

I'm back

After taking a break from the blog due to computer issues, I am back.


I created these cards from some one's idea. I have been on a creative block lately and have been doing more sewing and quilting.
The same idea but in different color waves with the pink showing up better in these pictures. They were sized in the Gypsy to fit the card size that was selected. Both embossed and the letters on the flowers were glued and then attached using a brad. Embroidery floss was attached then mounted on the top layer then attached to the main body of the card.
