The muse is in the house!

1a. I love this "diet" set... here is the outside...

1b. And the inside stamped. :)

2. With heartfelt Sympathy... always a hard card to create but love how this came out. Simply elegant.

3a. Cross... I wished I had this stamp when I was making the invitations for my daughter's Baptism. Silver embossed and it's stunning in person.

3b. Love how the flash from the camera captures the silver...

4. I can't get enough of these silk flowers. Similar to the card below but turned the other direction.

Today's stamped cards...

1. I just love, love, love the Spellbinders BUTTERFLY die... A super quick card.

2. WISH card is using pretty embossed and glittered scrapbook paper.

3. A repeat of card #1 -- did I mention I love this Butterfly die???

4. Thank You card was nice to put together. Silk flowers, an eyelet in the center, 3-D sentiment.

5a. Sorry this one is blurry... Valentine's card. Faux stitching around the heart. Sort of like my real sewing attempts. Not perfect but made with love.

5b. Close up of the faux stitching...

6a. A gift card holder... this was fun to make with a "belly band".

6b. And the gift card open... Note to self: Pay attention to where you place the brads. Any further in and my gift card would not have fit. ;)

Birthday card for my brother

He's a huge Elvis fan and thought, why not a record and sleeve.

The record is a round card that opens up and I used white printer paper so I can write a personal note.

Even the back was detailed with a bar code (stamp). :)

The finished sleeve is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4".

More cards for my friend...

Cards for my friend...

I'm almost finished making the cards a friend has asked me to create... Here they are. I've made several of some and only one of others. I'm really pleased with them all.

Look what I signed up for!!!

I registered today and now I'm going to do it...

I'm going to be at the Bank of America building, Downtown Tampa, on March 21st at 7am to do something I never thought I would do a year ago...

Please check out my page with the link below.

One dollar would put me that much closer to the *minimum* of $100 I need to raise to do this. If you don't want to go thru the secure site, you can send cash or check to me (can make the check to me and I'll make out a lump sum check to the American Lung Association or you can make the check out to them directly.)


I'm not here to be the top fundraiser... meeting the minimum would be just fine. So again, $1 would be fine, $5 would be fine. And if you can't pledge money, please say a prayer for me that I am safe and all goes wonderfully well. :)

I don't know why the above link isn't "clickable" but copy and paste or send me an email and I'll email it to you directly.

Thanks so much if you can help,
