Wooftastic birthday

I have officially hit my heavy birthday time of the year.  I always kind of wish it wasn’t at the same time that I was trying to get all of my Christmas stuff done, but since my birthday is at this time of year I don’t complain too much.   This year I have at least tried to make some cards ahead of time so that I am not quite so stressed over the next couple of weeks.

Love and kindness

So, I have been really bad at actually making my husband an anniversary card.  This year I did, and this is similar to the card that he received.  We celebrated our nineteenth anniversary on this last Wednesday, it seems crazy that it could be that many years.

Get well flowers

his card was made and ready to be posted yesterday, I, however, was taking care of a sick puppy.  I guess that is what I get for making a get well card?  I have no idea what was wrong, he had an appetite, he just wasn't...

Birthday flower fairy

There are holes in my memory because of the MS.  It makes it a challenge when I make birthday cards for certain people because I can sometimes only remember one thing about them if that.  Then again sometimes that makes it a bit easier because there are other people it feels that I could make a hundred cards for because I think of all sorts of things about them when it is time to make them a birthday card.

Autumn coffee

Making myself feel really brilliant today, while I was working on figuring out the layout of this sketch and trying to get the measurements correct for cutting, all of a sudden I realized that the correct measurements are actually written on the sketch. I sware I spend so much time looking at the shapes on a sketch that I just didn’t notice that there were numbers, Well that made things easier. Geezes, Gina!

Time for thanks

Every since I got this months kit I have been thinking about how to use these leaves and when I saw this sketch this seemed like a good fit. I like how they are thin enough to not overwhelm the card, but they are large enough that you don’t have to use a lot of them to cover the area. I don’t know that they are something that I would buy on my own, and yet I am so happy to get to play with them, that is what I love about the monthly kits!

Turn the page

After yesterdays search for a sorry stamp and not being able to find one, I found this one. It wouldn’t have worked for that card, but I do have some sorry stamps. This is probably where I need to figure out some way to do some kind of inventory of my stamps so I actually know what I have.

Christmas gecko

I am sure that everyone in the house has enjoyed me singing ‘Christmas Gecko’ today while making this card. I have been so excited to make this card! I don’t know why it makes me so happy to put a Santa hat on the gecko, but it does.

Watercolor thanks

When I went to make this card I wanted to make a Sorry card, but I don’t seem to have a stamp for that. The kind of funny thing was that I was lamenting to my nephew and he kept saying ‘sorry’ then we realized that it was funny. He didn’t know what to say except sorry you don’t have a sorry stamp. I do have a lot of thanks, stamps so that is what I did instead.

Linked hearts

OK, I think I finally figured out the secret to the heart wreath stamp. Just use one color. Well, I am sure that I could go in with a fine tip pen and add a bit of more color at this point if I really felt the need, but I am thinking my problem with the stamp is that I keep trying to make it to complex and need to just keep it simple. It is beautiful as it is and I need to just let that be. read more

Birthday travel

I feel like I have to admit that I have this feeling at the end of every major season of disappointment in myself at the seasonal things that I didn’t use on cards. The remaining Halloween items that didn’t quite make it on to cards this time around. I know that they will be used in the future, that it just wasn’t their time quite yet, and it isn’t something that I can ‘push’. I just still feel like I should have made more and tried a bit harder. read more

Pumpkin guts

Finally I feel well enough to make cards again! I am generally washing my hands and using hand sanitizer throughout the day just to make sure that I am not getting any smutz on the cards, so that way I am being careful about keeping them germ free as well, but when your nose keeps dripping there isn’t anything you can do but take some time off. I guess I could have worn a mask but yuck. read more
