Happy Birthday Ruth

My childhood best friend of 52 years is having a birthday in May.  I wanted to send a special card to her.
The branch, flower and butterfly are placed under "glass".  It is the case from one of my embossing folders.  Flower and butterfly are handmade from my stash and the branch is one I colored with pencil crayons and OMS.
 I cannot remember where the digi on the outside of the envelope came from so if it is yours please let me know and I will give you credit for it.
Have a Blessed day.

Silhouette Bride and Groom

I was going to enter this in Craft a Scene Silhouette but then I re-read the rules and it says it has to have a scene in it so-------------
The background paper is from the stash.
The quatrefoil is one I like to use and it is an svg from Cori's Cricut and Cut Two Pieces (which used to be Cutting Time).
The border is MS GardenTrellis.
The silhouette is an svg from Cute-Cutz.
Lined the envelope with the background paper and all done.
Have a Blessed day.

Diamond fold card

The  diamond cut is a complete black card and then I inserted a white card inside.  Used the same diamond cut for the envelope.  This is an svg from Monica's Creative Room.
I rarely put sentiments on the cards until it is time to use them.  This one could either work vertical or horizontal. 
Have a Blessed day.

This is the first card I have tried to post since blogger and I were having problems.  Looks as if I may have gotten it fixed. 
All of the card is from p.o.t.d. (pile on the desk).  I really like the incire (cut and fold) method of creating a cute card.
Have a Blessed day.

interior of Rainbow bridge card

Rainbow bridge

Hi My daughter had to euthanize their two cats after 13 years. These two cats were born minutes apart and have never been separated. I wanted to send her and my grandchildren a card. The brown background is from a folder by The Paper Studio called Zebra. Corners from a Cuttlebug die and the outer corners are a Dollar store punch. As usual the photos aren't the greatest but you get the picture. Again, I apologize if I am using a picture that belongs to someone else. It was one I had in the computer and don't know where I got it. So if it is yours please let me know. I am still fighting with blogger and most of what I am posting is just guesswork. Have a Blessed day. Myrna

Incire and tea bag folding

Oh my goodness I think I may have figured this thing out!!!!  I hate change (can you tell?)
I was visiting Shaz in Oz and fell in love with her card.  However, I did not have the die cut. Since I had the incire in my computer I thought I could make a scalloped circle around it with the Cricut and SCAL program so that is what I did.  It is way bigger than the die cut and I am attempting to make a smaller one and also a smaller tea bag folded star.  My card is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" so the incire is just under that.  The tea bag folded star is one I have had in the stash forever.  The corners are from Cuttlebug die cut and the 4 little pearls are my first attempt with liquid pearls.
The envelope is just half of the incire cut with a black background.
Have a Blessed day.

Seed catalogue cover

Well thanks to blogger I am totally disgusted. This is the cover that should have been showing on my blog titled seed catalogue. However, I am not very computer savvy and so until I can figure out the new blogger I will have to content myself with just posting one or two pictures. :( Myrna no it won't let me post the picture of the cover. I will keep trying though so bear with me on this disjointed post. thanks

Seed catalogue

This is a cute little project that I wanted to do for my brother and his wife. You see they plant a large garden every year and since I don't really have space or inclination for a vegetable garden I thought this might be rather cute. I also enjoy the fruits of their labor so thought I might contribute this summer. lol I used the camera template from Alice at Cute-Cutz because it had such a nice little pock
et for holding the seeds. Also used her svg for the rabbit which I thought was adorable. The mouse is from Martha Stewart a long time ago. There you have it. Have a Blessed day. Myrna p.s. I am not too happy with blogger because I can't figure it out. I just got comfortable with the old way and now phhht that's gone.
