Now how can butterflies and rinestones go together? Well I guess you are just going to have to look at the card and see. Do you like it or not? I can't make you like it or not but I kind of feel it is different enough to put them together. What do you think?
The flowers have rinestones on every other one cause I didn't have enought of them, but what I have have adds a little flair to the card. Then of course I added the butterfly at the top. We have a lot of them around where I live.
Thank you for coming by and I hope you will leave me a comment on how or what you think of this card.
But it's not just another card it isn't like any other card that I have. Yes the paper maybe the same but that is all. Also I put a lot of LOVE into each of my cards. IF I DON'T like them I don't use them for the ladies at Church. I'm Proud of what i have done. I can remember the first few that I did and how I didn't like them at all.
The fence has two plants out in front of it on this one. Sorry they aren't Roses, I didn't have those, so I hope this works. With another butterfly and right to the point about Happy Birthday.
I know I say this all the time but I really mean every word of it. Thank you for coming. IF I didn't have friends on here, even if small in amount, I wouldn't stay. But I know I have few of you out there. Thanks so much.
Just plum simple and easy to make and I just love this job. I try to do my best but I'm not sure if anyone likes them but me. But I do and I know I have one friend that does. I love putting the butterfly on this one with the flowers and buttons.
The Butterfly really adds to this card with the purple buttons and green buttons. Then the dark green ribbon on the button..
Thank you so very much for coming by and at least taking a peek at my cards. This is part of my joy in life along with my two kids and all the grandkids and son and daughter in laws.. What a great family I have.
This has a lot of Buttons and they are on each flower and that really brings the flower out as if it is jumping off the cards. Yes this is another Birthday card as the rest of them are.. But card is just very siple but right to the point.
This one has red and green buttons on the flowers to drive your eyes to them.
Well anyhow it does for me.
Thank you for coming by and looking at my card. I look forward to hearing from you.
Is this fair to like one of the cards you make. I really like this sets of cards and I'm not really sure but I really do. Maybe it is because they are a little different this time around. I will let you be the judge on them or not.
The two buttons have the ribbons going thur them and they have a Dots under each of them to hold them up and away from the paper.
Thanks for coming by and looking at what I have made for my friends.
Yes I know I'm repeating myself but here is the 4th border that comes with the Creative Memories Border Maker. This one is sooooooo cute I just had to share it with you also. It says "You & Me" on it. I made it look like it is coming out of a envelope, I wanted it to look like it's own card on top of a card. I'm not sure if that is the way people will take it but that is what I'm trying to say. Here take a look and let me know what you think.
I don't know if it is the best or if it is just different then the others. On the little card I stamped "You're special" Also on most of these last 7 cards I stamped "Just a Note".
I left most of them blank inside so they could add a note to the sisters in our Ward or to a family member.
Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you will enjoy your time here. Please leave me a comment so I know how I'm doing and PLEASE if you have anysuggestion's for me.
It isn't just flowers that need Sun to grow but we as a living being need the Sun. Some of us more then other love to bask in the Sun light. I know the minute the sun comes up my grandkids thinks they need to be out in it. Then they cry when they have to come in.
We all can be smiles when we have what our being needs. These Flowers need the warmth of the sun just like we do.
Thank you sincerely for coming by and I hope you will leave a comment for me. I love it when I hear from my friends.
Buttons has more use then just to button up your shirt or dress. Who ever started us using buttons for crafts was really smart and for that I'm reallly grateful. I love how it adds to the cards or even your scrapbook.
If you will look close to this card you will see that I have put on the card "Your Special" and "Happy Birthday" I wanted this person to know how special they are.
"Just a note" to tell them how soecial they are is on there also.
Thank you for coming by and I hope you will let me know what you think and how you feel.
I love the New Border Maker from Creative Memories. I'm having so much fun playing with it and trying to make cards that all of you will like. I really want to know what you think and how you feel about them. I love your inout on them and the help you give me is so important. It helps me to be a better card maker.
The big flower is what I learned from one of you ladies on here. I printed out yours and I went to work and I tried three of four time to make it work just from your picture and I couldn't do it but finally the 5th try worked just great. It was a lot of un making them and I made about 8 of them and have used them on different cards.
I used a glue dot behind it to bring it out and it really adds to the card. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like this card.
This Card would work great for a teacher or for a special person in your life. As you can see I took a 12 x 12 piece of paper that had Happy Birthday written all over it and I cut it up to fit on the front of each card. The cards are 4 x 5 size and they make the perfect size for these cards.
I used the cricut to cut up the apple and make a lot of them at that time. The Cartridge that I used was one from Creative Memories. For the life me I can't remember the name of it, but I think it is Celebate or something like that. I'm sorry I don't remember. It also has Pumkins on it and other Holiday things
Thank you so much for coming by and I hope you will enjoy this card also. Thank you for coming by.
This is going to be a little different post for the next 6 cards. I didn't take but only one picture of each of the cards, but I want you to know that I did do something for the insides of some of them.
Our three little flowers are looking over the fence to see what is going on over on the other side of the fence. I love the colors of this card and yest it is still a birthday card and we do have Happy Birthday inside of it.
Thank you for coming by and I hope you will enjoy these cards as much as I did making them. These are for the ladies of our Ward (Church).
Ladies I'm so excited that I just have to tell everyone. Also it NOT my birthday or Holiday for me so that is one of the reasons that I'm excited. I went to the Post Office and to Wal-Mart cause they both had a package for me. I'm not sure who the came from neither. Here is what I got:
I have wanted these cartridges for so long and my husband knew I wanted the two from Wal-Mart cause I have been wanting them to come into our Wal-Mart since they first came out and I saw them.
I want to let the person that since these to me how happy they made me and how excited and am to get these, it is like Christmas all over again.
Most of you know our daughter sang for the Umatilla, Morrow and Grant County Fair and also at the Oregon State Fair, Plus for 7 years she sang at the Pendleton Round-Up. I would still like to get my hands on the County Fair Cartridge if someone wants to sell me one. That one would really top off all of her talent shows.
Is there anyone out there that would like to sale me the Cartridge "County Fair" I sure hope so. PLEASE.
Thank you all for coming by and hope someone out there can help me.
I'm so sorry this is the last of the new sytle until next week. I have a workshop tomorrow and hoping to get some sales but mainly to go and have fun with family and friends.
This card was made withthe Frame Chain Border Make. Also there is still one I haven't made and I'm going to save that one for next week. It is called "You & Me" I'm going to use it tomorrow in the wedding album I'm making.
I put the frame Chain on a long piece of 1 in by 12 inch cardstock and cut it up enough to ho in each of the two cards that I have made. It looks really good on the inside of the card. Tomorrow I'm make it to use a Frame around a picture.
Thank you so much for coming by and I know most of you will be seeing this while I'm at a all day work shop. So I won't get to see this until around 7 pm tomorrow night (Saturday) when I get home.
Thanks to all of you. You all are a bunch of wonderful ladies and I'm so glad I'm part of this wonderful group of ladies. The Hive has been so good for me. It has taken my mind off the worries of my husband poor health. God Bless you all.
Here is another card I made with our New Border Maker System. I love this system it is so wonderful and you can do so much with it. Just keep watching and you will see what I can do. Here is another one:
This card was the first one I made with the New Picket fence maker. I didn't think about putting Ribbon on this one until after I had finished it, but that made it to late. I added the Red Rose Ribbon when I saw the Hummingbird and felt that these two would work really good together. I still got the Happy Birthday in there.
This card I haven't put anything in the inside of it just yet. I was thinking of putting a vellum verse on it.
Thank you for coming by and looking at my cards. I'm having so much fun in making them and I'm so grateful that there is people like you that come by to look at them. I wouldn't be doing this if you didn't like them at all. But I do get some remarks and that just tickles me. I'm like a little kid in a candy store when you leave me comments whether good or not so good. It just makes me better and you can't hurt my feeling it just makes me better.
This is made using all Creative Memories Products and tools. All of our Tools are 20% off this month only so don't let this go by with out looking at least.
This is the fifth of my Creative Challenge one's that I can do. So this is the last one for me to put on for the Celebrate Challenge. First I want to thank all the kind person who have left me a comment on the first 4 of them. They are all loved and I feel that someone cares about my hard work. But I love this hard work and I sure enjoy all of the remarks so please keep them coming. Here is another one:
The butterfly or the fence is the center of the card. What draws your eyes first? For me it is the Fence with the Ribbon going Thur it. this is made by the New Border System and one of them is the Picket Fence maker. There is four of them all together.
Here you can see the Picket fence a little bit better plus the butterfly. I weaved the ribbon thur the fence after I made it and cut it and then after it went thur the fence I taped the ribbon down on the back and glued the fence down.
This piece is called Frame Chain and you can buy all for of these alone with the Border Maker and the Border Guide all from Creative Memories and you can find these on my personal website www.mycmsite.com/dmdegraw
Thank you for coming by and looking at my cards. I love this New System and I'm sure you would too. If anyone does buy then Those names will go into a drawing. If only one buys you will recieve the gift. I will do this until the end of the month. It has to be off my website.
