I Want My Mummy

I made these three easel cards for my adult kids, they still 'want their Mummy' I'm sure
Cricut Cartridge Mini Monsters

(the card wasn't my idea, I saw one similar one another blog and just had to make them myself so sorry can't remember or find the blog, if it was you please let me know so I can give credit for your inspiration!!!)

Fall Thank You

I saw this wonderful card in the November issue of Cards Magazine by Vanessa Menhorn and took my inspiration for my card from her.
I've had the pack of Autumn leaves for a year or two. I had picked them up after the Holidays for next to nothing at JoAnns and this was just the perfect use for them!
Adding a button and a tad of ribbon just set off the front. The edges are inked with Vintage Photo Distress ink and so sorry but the papers were scraps and I'm not sure who they are from.
I used my Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to cut the tag out.

Wedding Card

Here is the card and envelope I made to go with the mini album.
Papers are from Graphic 45 Le Romantique Collection.
Sentiment is a rub on from My Sentiments Exactly. 
Paper is onion skin distressed with Vintage Photo Distress ink,
corners cut and embossed with a Fiskars corner/embosser punch
I lined the inside of the envelope with some of the matching paper.

My First You Tube Videos!

Have you wondered where I've been????  Hopefully you've noticed I've been gone, lol!  We were away on vacation (check out my pics on my other blog Reflections of My Year) and then I've been working for a long long time on my first Mini Album.  This was made from Paper Bags and a tremendous amount of time pouring over other creative divas on You Tube!  The videos are uploaded to You Tube and  are available for you to watch.  (This was a whole other learning experience just figuring out how to upload and add a few online notes here and there - and it's taken forever!!!  I now admire all those You Tubers out there I've been taking so much for granted!)  And, yes, it took me two videos to go through the book, it's gonna take some time and experimentation to figure out the editing portion of this You Tube thing.

Please leave me a note and let me know what you think of the video (oh how I hate my voice lol) and the book!  Thanks for stopping!
