New Cards Again







You are wondering where have I been? I have been spending time with my husband through open heart surgery and the aftermath. He had it on July 7th and is doing well but it is a big ordeal. I hope to never go through it myself.

Finally I am back to making cards and am enjoying it immensely. I just created a canvas mixed media piece called Paris that I am giving my mother. I made my granddaughter a Pillowcase dress. The elephant baby card has a circle in the center and when you open it the baby elephant appears. It is called a Marquee Card and I found out how to do it here. I am very proud of the card although you can't tell how neat it is without seeing it open. I am creating everyday. Unfortunately my craft room is still a disaster but I have hopes of getting it clean this year!! I don't know why I think it will happen, mostly it seems to be getting worse!
Here are my latest works. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Robin, Your creations are beautiful. I love the baby card. I must try a marquee card. It looks like fun. I hope her husband continues to do well!

Beautiful cards Robn! I love your Paris canvas piece. I'm glad to see you are back to creating. I hope your husband is doing well. I know the recovery after that surgery takes a lot of time.

Take care and I look forward to seeing more of your projects.

Glad to see you are getting some deserved me time to craft Robin, love the mixed media piece. Wishing your hubby continuing good health.

So glad you're able to get back to crafting!

One day when I was bemoaning the mess in my craft room, an artist friend said, "Of course you've got stuff out all over the place - you need to be able to see your palette!" Now I don't feel so bad about a mess in my craft room - unless its hiding what I need! :D

Meant to say I especially like your butterfly/fairy card (guess why!) and your Marquee card. I really want to try one of those one of these days. They look like fun.
