Two new sets now available

You can find them here. Both sets come with inserts to make a traditional greeting card or a baby shower invitation.....even a blank one to add your wording. While you are there be sure to check out Karel's cute baby cards too. I just love her diaper cards!

More cards finished....

I got a little sidetracked with my cardmaking but I did manage to finish a few I thought I would post. The birthday card graphic is by Laurie Furnell at PCCrafter. It's a two "layer" cake with stickles on the flames. The other 3 cards are a set that I did for Karel and will hopefully be available soon in her shop. (the original artwork is by Gail Eads of Country Life Graphics) All three can be layered for a 3D effect and come with inserts and matching envelopes. Coming soon.....more baby cards and of course, Christmas!!

Today I played with paperdolls.........

I remember when I was a young girl one of my favorite things was paperdolls. Back then they were actually made from paper and had little paper tabs that folded down to keep the clothes on the doll. Yesterday I made magnetic paperdolls. I got these cuties from Cheryl Seslar at Raggedy Scrappin . I printed them out on my computer then ran them through my Xyron machine with the laminate/magnet cartridge. Then I decorated this cute little lunchbox tin to put them in.
Now I'm working on more cards so hopefully will have some to post tomorrow.

I don't have any more craft shows to do until the fall so..............I'm working on Christmas crafts today!!! Here are a few of the tags I have finished so far. The chickens are not really Christmas, I just liked them and will probably add them to my Etsy store. All the graphics are by Cheryl Seslar.
Which set is your favorite? Mine is the gingerbread penguins......or maybe the chickens. Oh, I can't decide!!!

I went to Florida to visit my daugter's family. Her husband is going to Iraq next month and they were renewing their wedding vows before he goes. My camera died before the wedding started so I have no pictures but hopefully she will send me some soon. I got to spend time with my granddaughter who is 13!!! Her biggest problem of the day was that while at the wedding she had no cell phone reception and could not even send a text message....LOL!!!! Here is her picture after having her makeup done. Isn't she adorable!

It's never too early to think about Christmas!!! That is my absolute favorite time of the year!! I'm starting to do my crafting for my fall and winter shows and here is one of my biggest sellers the past few years. This year I am adding them to my Etsy shop as well. The graphic was done by Laurie Furnell, one of my favorite artist. You can find her work at PCCrafter or on her blog.
