Sorry - Long Time No post

I am sorry if you have missed me - I have been busy with other things in my life so cardmaking has gone by the wayside. Life is a little more normal so maybe I will be able to get some cards created - since I have birthday's coming up - I had better get some made.
My card tonight that I am sharing was made several weeks ago but did not want to post because it was a card for a friend for a belated birthday. It was made using the Making Memories 8 x 8 pack of paper from the "travel" set (I think). Loved the edging on the red print paper. Fabric strip was was from my new valance I made for my bathroom - I also used the fabric to cover the new brads from Imaginisce. From my sewing days I did many covered buttons and this is basically the same idea - just a brad - I improvised with the stuff in the sewing button box to make it. I did glue the top down to make it more secure. The felt flower is from a felt doily by Martha Stewart that I cut apart. Chipboard painted and then glitter added to it. Lace from my supplies.
Everyone have a wonderful evening - trying to work on a special order card - I don't think she will get it until Wednesday. I got a little distracted tonight.

Hump Day Wednesday

Yeah - it is WEdnesday - one more day of work this week - rough 3 day week. I wish I had all of those every week.

Last two cards in my card set - just a little different placement on the sentiment and snowflake and the paper was a little bit different. Hopefully it brings some good money at the auction - still have to make a holder for the cards and stamp something on the envelopes - I think some blue snowflakes will be just perfect.

Everyone have a wonderful evening.

No Time like Snow Time

This is no time for Snow - Yuck. Pleasant fallish days are what I think we will be enjoying this week - beats the heat and humidity we have had lately.
Another card for the card set I am making. The challenge on Our Creative Corner - was to make a Christmas card - and I do believe this qualifies.
I don't know who makes the stamp - it is hiding from me presently - when I find it I will post the manufacturer.
Everyone have a wonderful evening.

Creativity strikes again

I actually found a little time to create a card. My remodel is coming along. Had today off work so I made the valance for the bathroom and my neighbor came over and hung my shower curtain for me - it is so much easier to do if you are a few inches taller. It is amazing how nice it all looks together. Now I need something to put on the walls but really have no idea where I want to go with decorating - esp since it connects with the bedroom and the same colors are in there. I am still slowly moving things back into the bedroom.
Took my neighbor girl shopping for her birthday and then we had dinner out. Enjoyable evening with Lexi. Gives me some quality time with the kids and I have company for eating out. They have introduced me to Justice - a shop for girls - oh my - I think my niece Molly will be very happy Aunt Barb found this shop.
My card tonight is based on this week's sketch at Card Patterns. A card for my friend Shari to make her smile - she had good news that her chemo is working so I thought the cheerleading monkey was perfect for a card.
Stamp - Stampendous colored with Copics
Paper - Basic Grey
Ribbon - May Arts
Flower - Hobby Lobby
Cancer symbol brad -bought individually so have no idea

Time Out for Remodel

No creating done lately. I have been working on things in the house and outside so I have been occupied. Hopefully soon I will have time to create again.

I am a little behind in all my cards.

Soon I will post some pictures of the remodel and update.
