Shadow Box Snowy Winter

Greetings, I have been playing around with the Lawn Fawn Shadow Box die set.  Since I don't use stamps or have the ability to color I was really struggling to find dies small enough to insert into the box dimensions.  I did apply a small piece of acetate to the front just for fun.  The nice thing about this die is the entire card folds flat for mailing.

Update on my black bear issue, he is back, knocked over the container I have garden clippings in and managed to pull everything out on the ground.  I guess he was looking for the cantaloupe peels inside.  Gosh he is a big pain in the butt.   Also the people behind us have a huge horse farm and the bear took down the fence on their property in several locations.  He weighs over 200 pounds so the fence didn't have a chance.

Ventured out to have my teeth cleaned, wore my mask until I got into the chair, there is a limited amount of people in the dentist office now, there were only two of us getting a teeth cleaning. The hygienist was wearing a mask, goggles and a plastic shield.  

Husband finally got his hair cut, he worn a mask the entire time.  So far neither of us has gotten the virus from going out.  I just can't believe how it is ramping up in the United States now.

Home is where memories live

Greetings and thank you for all the fun comments on my last post.  I love reading what you thought of my design.

Another large die, really this house die is big, also for some reason mine was missing the chimney die so I just used another die I had.

Double Decker Flower Power

Thanks for stopping by.

This die is pretty big so I had some trouble trying to figure out a way to use it on a design.

Barbecue Delight

Greetings, hope you are well.

Today's design was using the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up die set to create a masculine design.  I even stopped myself from adding flowers which I love to do.  It is hard to use shiny paper and then take a good picture of it.

My husband really got a kick out of this design, he said it was the best one yet.

I have a question, does anyone know why the blog list (mine is on the right side of my blog) sometimes shows a image and other times just the words.  Also, some of the blogs on the list never show a current date posted.   I sure can't figure out what is going on.

Explore The Universe

Hello, I hope everyone is doing well.  It is still raining on and off and for some reason it tends to rain a lot more on the weekends.

As you can see I am still on the space theme right now.  I just thought these were a fun fantasy take on moon walking and outer space.

I have decided my computer skills are really terrible, first I couldn't even figure out where the icon was to upload a new card using the new blog features, the plus icon on the right hand bottom of the page meant nothing to me.  Then came the question how to enlarge the picture, finally I clicked on the picture and found the little pencil icon.

Blast Off

Greetings this is my first time trying something really different.  I used the Taylored Expression clouds die to cut the sides and then used it for the bottom.  I added some little circles for more of a layered look.

I have been trying out the new blog format, just to upload this design I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out what I am doing.  I am sure it will get easier in time.

Cardinal Watching

Greeting and thank you for stopping by.  Gosh I can't tell you how many cards I have started only to throw away because things just weren't working right.  I can always tell when a card is going to work or not.

Today's design after many tries was just a fun take on bird watching. I used the Carolers as the bird watchers since they have what I assume is a book or something in there hands.
