Beware of Treadmill

I've been going to my hairdresser for 22 years now, can you believe that?!  She was recently put out of commission due to a mishap on a treadmill.  Luckily, she was okay but felt a little embarrassed by her accident.  I made this silly card for her.

I found the picture of the woman on the treadmill from clip art, and created the Beware of Treadmill sign in Powerpoint.  Printed it twice so I could pop it up on foam squares for effect.  Hope you like it! 

I've also given my blog a new look!  Phew, that took a while to do. Wish I was more computer savvy than I am so I knew what I was doing, but I'm happy with the change for now.

I'm also returning to the Die Cuttin' Divas design team for the new year.  Look for the first new challenge on Tuesday, January 1.

Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Christmas to All!

A quick card to share with everyone.

I just had to get this Cricut cartridge, A Quilted Christmas.  Couldn't resist this old-fashioned Santa!

I wish everyone a wonderful holiday time with their family and friends.  

Side note:  it's snowing here in Maryland! :)

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Good Night!!

One of those Days!

Ever have one of those days where things just don't turn out as you thought they would?!

I've been trying to get some Christmas cards made, and I was liking how this one was going.  I cut the  holly from Stretch Your Imagination (an oldie but a goodie).  This cut has a silhouette image which I outlined with Stickles, along with the berries.

I embossed the leaves with the Cuttlebug Houndstooth folder for some extra texture.

And I had this stamp that I thought went perfectly with the image, which I stamped with Forest Green ink.

It was looking pretty good, I thought, and I was rather happy with it.  So all I needed to do was finish the inside of the card.

Let's see, I should probably use green cardstock to match the front, with white cardstock on top and stamp a nice sentiment on that.

So, I opened the card, and this is what happened...

Oops, I attached it to the card upside down!  Guess I'll try again!

Custom Thank You Card

This is a custom thank you card I made for a co-worker.  She is always good at coming up with the most beautiful sentiments, and she wanted this phrase on the front of the card.  The purpose was to thank a family for having her family over for Thanksgiving, hence, the fall colors.

I used green and burnt orange shimmer cardstock, the patterned paper is from DCWV Amber Autumn mat stack, and orange textured cardstock for the frame, which is cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge.  The scalloped border is a Martha Stewart punch.  Added ribbon, stickles, and gems.  The sentiment was typed on my computer in colors to match the papers. 

Hope you like it!
