Final Post and the End of this Blog

As March closes so does this Blog. It has been a great run! Hugs. Prayers. Love. This is my final card and so fitting as this is my wish for you.

As I close I will say that I have enjoyed all 2944 posts and all your wonderful comments. Keep it real and keep on crafting!

Hey, Chick

It 's hard to believe but another Sale-a-Bration is ending this week. I have been doing this for more than 10 years and it is hard to believe but I will be closing this chapter in my life soon. I still love paper crafting and I always will but I will no longer be selling SU! So, this will be my last SAB. It has been a great one. Thanks to all my friends and family who have supported me through the years!

Happy Birthday to my DH

Today is my darling hubby's birthday. Although we have been married for 36 years, it never gets old with him. We love to hike, travel, scuba dive and we both love the Lord. What more can you want in a husband than someone who is helping you get to heaven! Happy Birthday, my love. Yes, this is all retired goodies but our next big adventure in life will be learning to sail and I wanted a nautical type card with the part of the earth we love...the Caribbean!

Perfectly Wrapped

This is another quickie that I put together. The hardest part was fussy cutting the flowers. I used the Playful Palette dsp to choose my colors...Emerald Envy and Sweet Sugarplum. I love how simple it is and how versatile it can be.

Dragonfly Dreams

I love this dragonfly dreams set. I say set because it comes in a bundle so that you save $$$. I made this card using Whisper White and Basic Black card stock. I cut white dragonflies and colored them with my markers then I overlaid them with the black dragonfly. I love the effect. It doesn't really show but I also used a Wink of Stella on the bugs to make them shine!

Tasty Trucks ... You're the Sweetest

How fun would it be to have a truck that delivers just the best cupcakes. I am sure they are out there but I have never seen one. I made this one using some retired DSP to make it look like a party truck. Bring on the cake!

Designer Tee

I wanted to use some more of my SAB stamp sets and I did not have a t-shirt stamp. I decided to make a simple card with the repeating phrase from the Designer Tee stamp set. I lived through the smiley face t-shirt years that Forrest Gump wore. My dad wore one of them proudly back in the day!

You're the Best...Tasty Truck/Ambulance

I was thinking of this nurse that I work with that responded to a student 'passing out' that ended up with CPR and the discovery of a heart problem. Due to her quick actions she was able to save a life. That is what school nurses do every day! This card is for her.

Inside the Lines DSP

I wanted to make another quick card and used some of the Inside the Lines DSP only available during Sale-a-Bration. It is pretty even if you do not color it! For this one I colored the little bee and added some glimmer with a wink of Stella.

Sponged Butterfly Effect

For this card I again used post-its to frame the background and sponged Marina Mist into the rectangle. I also used 3 colors to sponge a piece of whisper white that I then cut the butterfly out of using my Big Shot and the bold butterfly die. The sentiment is from...I can't remember. Let me know if you know it so I can remedy my brain block.
