No time

I have been MIA - AGAIN! I got a new job (which I hate and have to get out of but it took me 11 months to find this one) and I don't get home until 7:00 p.m. Not much time for blogging and creating. Good thoughts from all to find another job SOON are appreciated. Thanks ladies! Hope to be with you again soon!

This card was made for MY special mom. I always love to do something special for her. It literally took me 15, count them, 15 hours to make this card. Lots of cutting, trimming, pasting, glittering (I know it isn't a word, but humor me for now). I hope she enjoys it as much as I loved making it for her. Hell, I think I may go get her a frame and frame it!

Mother's Day Cards for others

Here are three more cards that I have made for friend's mother's for Mother's Day. I hope you enjoy them.

So Sorry!

Ladies: To my TUIC blog friends, I am sooooooo sorry that I have not posted any "happy" posts on your blogs. And to my "new" blog group friends (I Dream Of Paper), I haven't posted on any of yours as of yet, and for this I apologize to all of you. I have been sick for a couple of weeks and feeling like hell and just haven't really been on my computer much. I am feeling better now and I will be scouring all of your blogs in the next day or two and see what everyone has been up to! Hope all is well with everyone!!!!

Old Friend

I had this card on my Etsy site and sold it to a friend of mine as a birthday card for her daughter-in-law. I always loved this old Stampin' Up set.

I just realized that my blog background is gone. I looked closely and it said the "person removed it." I didn't remove anything. How odd! Took me forever to select the one I wanted. I guess the "owner" removed them. Who knows. Back to the drawing board.

Yay! The vet called and my Maggie's growth was benign. Just have to wait until Wednesday to get her stitches out. Thank you everyone for asking about her!

Another Verve Stamp Card

Here is another Verve card that I made with my new set. I made one with a "thank you" on it to send to Maggie's vet. I hope she likes it!


This is card I just made with my new Verve stamp set. I ordered some the other day. Very fast shipping! I was excited to ink them up since I've never had them before. Must say, I love them! I'm obsessed with this flower!

Thank You Everybody!

Thank you everybody for the good wishes and thinking of me! I am feeling good and I'm really cute! I am taking medicine, which my mom thinks she is really smart by hiding in cheese, I know it's there but I just try to appease her because she is taking care of me! Thanks again for thinking of me! Maggie

Skipping Stones Design

I have found this "blog" and have found some stamps that I really like and wanted to order on this site. However, it appears to just be a blog to me. I added stamps to my cart, but I have to have a login name and password but there is nowhere that I see to "register." I have e-mailed them twice and haven't heard anything from anyone. Have any of you ladies heard of these stamps? I wanted a couple of sets but now am a little nervous to order them if I am ever able to order them.

My Little Maggie

Thank you ladies for your thoughts and prayers for my little Maggie. She did really great today the vet said. They lasered a couple of small growths from her eyelid, cleaned her teeth and took a tumor off her belly. The vet thinks the tumor is just a growth and will not be cancerous. Keep your fingers crossed. Thank you again for the good wishes. Some people don't get "animal lovers" but thank God there are more that do than don't! I appreciate all of you for thinking of us. Tammy

Simple and Easy

Normally I make more elaborate cards but I decided to get into my A Muse stash and see what I could come up with.
