Imagine cards

These are VERY simple snow angel Imagine cards.. They were printed, stickles and popped up.. They lack something extra but I can't see it right now... I am sure I will add to these before I am happy enough to send them out.. Just a little to plain.

Personal commentary. I have been way over scheduled for the month of September!! Running 7 days a week since Labor Day. The one night I was home I cancelled a meeting to go to bed at 4 PM and sleep until 5 AM because I was sick. I am still coughing and on antibiotic. Been way to busy, I don't like it..

This weekend I am joining WW.. Gotta lose this weight I gained after my hysterectomy!!! Then clean the house and yard work but on my time...not rush time.

another xmas card

I used Winter Frolic cart for this card. I glimmer misted the blue card base with marshmallow. The white strip on the bottom is some white sparkle end pieces I bought in bulk run through the cuddlebug. I added glossy accents to the round circles on the tree to make them look like they were made of glass. I have to say that I do not think my regular expression would have cut this title without tearing. On the Imagine it cut like butter with no tearing.

Sunday update

I am still battling a terrible upper respiratory infection. I called my doctor back Thursday and he phoned in another medication. I started using my nebulizer.. ughh the only time my asthma is triggered is from and upper respiratory infection. Anyhow I have been running non stop with meetings and that hasn't helped me get better. I have squeezed in a little crafting here and there. I made a few of this card Thursday night at my scrap group and have a nother set of a Christmas cards almost complete from Friday and last night. Hope to finish that set today and post.

I used the winter frolic cart and the snowflake cuddlebug folder. The pieces were pretty tiny to handle as this is an A-2 size card.

Last simple Thank you

This is the last of the simple thank you cards. I think my supply is replenished since I make most cards in doubles. Same supplies as the previous ones.

More simple thank you cards

I used the cuddlebug for embossing, Papertrey ink stamps, die cuts, ink, card base and matching ribbon. The paper paper is Martha Stewart.

Thank you card

I needed to send out a couple of Thank You cards recently and realized I had let my supply empty... I subscribe to the not every card has to be a work of art club... soo...... I made multiples of some quick easy thank you cards...

I used Martha Stewart punch pads that were double sided I got on clearance at Michael's that coordinated with my PTI card base... One strip of the double sided does both layers and leaves enough left to die cut the frame on the cuddle bug. I cut the frame and stamped from PTI Fillable Frames Additions 1.

Halloween Wreath

Finally finished the Halloween wreath... Took some time with school starting. Ughh I go from lazy days of summer to 110 miles an hour. LOL. BTW you can see the colors I painted the wall behind the wreath when I emptied the room the end of August for its face lift. I wanted bright and I love the beach.. thus the colors.

I went to Wilmington Delaware to attend Suzanne Deans copic class today.. WOW I took the beginner and learned how little I really knew about using them well. She is a sweetheart and I wish I would have signed up for the advanced as well. She makes it look so EASY and effortless.
