Halloween card

Good morning all

Before I tell you about my card I have an up date on Juddy's Dad .

They got the fluid drained and his enzymes are back to normal.

Doctors are gonna do another test today and they said if it comes back OK he can go home.....

( Praise the LORD )...Thank you all for your Prayers they really do work !


I made my 1st pop up card and I love it.......

I have a couple more to make ...I showed it to my Granddaughter Lily last night and it won her

I used Black card stock 12x12 folded in half then cut in half, to make 2 cards.

Debbie Mumm Fall paper folded and cut the same way.

then take the black card stock and cut a line at 1 1/2 and 2 1/4 in from each side at the fold

that makes your pop tabs....

I used Stretch your Imagination for....Pumpkin on the front cut @ 5 ins....

I wanted the front pretty simple since the inside was busy.

George cart for...... the circle used as a moon...cut @ 4ins pop dotted and doodled.

paper doll dress up cart for....... haunted house cut @ 4ins and I used Design Studio to stretch it ....I wanted it taller ! I added white paper behind the windows.

Clip art

Good morning

I have been ask many times where do you find your clip art I thought I would post a few places for you....

most of these are in another language , but just click on one of the books there are....patterns / crafts/ some you have to color / how to's ....if you don't like what you see just search is sort of like photobucket, they have anything you want ! all you have to do is right click on a pic you want , copy it and save it then you can do what you want with it.......I open mine with paint so I can re size it , then I print it out.

I included some samples of what you can get in this post for you !
I made a card with the bears.....

with sympathy

Good morning all

This was a tough card for me to make....On Monday My Daughter's Boyfriend's Uncle and Dad

where helping remodel their church , they were on their way home when they were in an accident. A girl claims she lost her brakes and hit them broad side....found out she didn't loss her brakes and the police are investigating it..they think maybe drugs was involved.

Well they both went to the hospital his Uncle John they said was just really banged up but would be OK, His Dad was banged up also and some broken ribs....they sent them home.

5 : 30 in the morning His Uncle John had a heart attack, they life flighted him to the hospital and in rout he went in to cardiac arrest... and went in to a comma.....that afternoon he was pronounced brain dead and taken off life support.....What really bothers me is they said it was the airbag that hit him so hard that it damaged his heart...I just can't get over how something that was made to save your life takes it away...that is soooo sad.

So I made this card for His Aunt.... I have to add the saying on the inside yet.

I used ....joys of the season cart for the dove with swirls cut @ 2 1/2 ins and added some 3d iridescent paint and pop dotted it.

Cuttle bug Swirls embossing folder

Martha Stewart boarder punch

E K Success corner punch

Lace / pearls and made a lace flower added a brad for the center.
