Last summer fling...

How time flies! Summer is almost over and it continues to show more rain in the forecast. It’s been one of the rainiest summers documented in years. Hoping that on Labor Day, it will be a nice day for the last summer fling. Schools are open again, in some states, and I am sure that the children didn’t have much of a summer vacation.
I have to leave for Virginia on September 15, to help out with my grandchildren. My daughter is having surgery and is going to need help, while she recuperates. The kids will be going off to school, and the baby will be staying home with me. I don’t drive, so I wouldn’t be able to drive her to the sitters. Which is fine with me, I won’t be bored alone in the house. I never took time to learn to drive, being from the city. I have always had all the transportation needed to get around. We have twenty four hour transportation services year round, so being a native of New York, I have adapted to this way of life. Now, I am useless out of the city. Well, I have made some cards to send out, when I get back. I will be gone for two weeks. I will post some of them now and the others, when I get back. I hope that you enjoy them. I will also have some updated pictures of my grandchildren, which I am looking forward to getting.
This is a Birthday card.

These are general cards.

Males dominate August...

Men are dominating this month, the month of August birthdays…..
I am making some birthday cards for four male members of my family. Two Son in laws, a Brother in law and a nephew, father and son celebrating their birthday on the same day. So, these are two of the four cards that I will be sending. I have one more to create. I always like to sending individual cards. I will be posting it soon. Hope you enjoy these, and I also posted another card with a book marker. This is the second one that I have made. The site was right, they stated that they are addictive, and yes they are. If you still haven’t gone to the site, check it out for yourself.



This is the other Book marker card that I made.

Hope that you enjoy and find use for these cards. Thanks for stopping bye, and please leave your commits, they are so rewarding to hear what you think about my cards.

One More Unfinished.....

I am slowly finishing some unfinished cards. During the time that my family was growing I had done some new baby cards, but I never got around to finishing this Mom 2 be card. I finally finished it and I wanted to share the results with those of you who are expecting new baby's, that my want a Mom to be card. So here it is. I hope that you like it. I have a few others that I plan to finish, so come back in the near future to check.


I made this Viking card for my Son in law Brian, who is having a birthday at the end of this month. I also want to share it with you. Making cards for males are always a challenge for me. They are hard to decorate, don’t want to make them to flowery. Male species are very sensitive about showing of cards that are in the slightest way feminine. Hope that you like what I created for him and find use for this card.
Thank you for stopping by.

Enjoy….keep those commits coming.

Unfinished finally finished….

These are cards that I started and never got around to finish. Some of them, at the time were causing some type of discouragement, so I just set them aside. I was able to go back to them and finished them. I hope that you like the outcome of my cards. Some of these cards are good for invitations , announcements or greetings. I am posting two cards now with the intention of add a few more to the list. Just look out for them soon. Enjoy… Thanks for Stopping by…
