Clean and Simple!


Hey there! Just wanted to share a clean and simple sympathy card I made last week for a friend. Brought me back to the days where you just stamped a sentiment or an image, added a ribbon and voilĂ ! Actually I had some other ones made with other images, but they weren't right.  You forget how classy a simple card can look!

To make, I just ran a portion of the paper through the cuttlebug, using an embossing folder. The other bit of paper, I punched out with my MS doily border punch. I inked the sides, added stickles, ribbon, pearls and the cherry blossoms from WOC. Hope u like! xox Trisha

Shabby Chic!

Good morning! So happy to figure out what was wrong with my blog posts-just tiresome to troubleshoot!

Christmas Flowers!

Hey all! Happy Saturday! I'm so relieved that Spring Break is here! So, after battling this sore throat and stuffed up nose, sore chest for two weeks I finally went to the doctor's on Friday afternoon and I have a bad sinusitis,and a touch of bronchitis.  I spent $150.00 on an inhaler and antibiotics-no drinking wine for me this week, or spending money on card-making supplies-wah!! But, I wouldn't have gone if it weren't for the bleeding nose I got just before leaving to go to work. I had to cough out junk (sorry-very gross) and then when I blew my nose, it just unleashed a flood of blood! I freaked out-haven't had a bleeding nose in 12 years, since my first pregnancy with my son!! I freaked mostly because I got blood on my new favorite green shirt!!LOL So, that's what made me make the Dr's appointment-otherwise I would have toughed it out some more!! Sorry, if I've grossed you out!!
On a brighter note,  DCD's Christmas Club's challenge is to incorporate christmas flowers in your creation! I used thes beautiful poinsettias from prima and my roses are from WOC.
I'm entering Just Magnolia's Bingo challenge. I chose: flowers, lace and ribbon, gems; WinterWonderland (Oh, Bauble) My  Basic Grey paper has a bauble on it and Delicious Doodles (Loads of Flowers), Fussy and Fancy (use feathers/zipper) and If the Shoe Fits (Recipe: flowers, distress inks, clear bling).Hope u like! xox Trisha

Q is for 'Quiliting'

Late DCD Post-Song Inspiration!

Hey all! I'm back from Toronto safe and sound! What a whirlwind experience-fantastic, but turbo speed all the way! And amongst my travels to and from I lost my zip drive (USB key) that stored these pictures that I was to send to my dear Boss Susie as well as other important school and personal documents that i had stored there!Arrgh!
So, this is just a reminder that this week's challenge over at DCD's Christmas Club is to incorporate a song in your creation! Mine is Amy Grant's song "Love Will Keep Us Warm This Year at Christmas!" It's not a really well known song unless you had her CD in the late 80's and early 90's. My Mom thought it would be good for her children to listen to "Christian Rock" instead of all the Metallica and other heavy metal I used to listen to! HAHAHA! SO there you go! Hope u like!

P.S. My candy ends march 10th and the winner will be announced on the 11th! Don't miss out! xox Trisha

Guest Designer at Delightful Challenges- My Precious Audrey and Meet Briley!

The image above is a piccie that I found on Google of my first doll Audrey, made by Fisher-Price in the 1970's. She was my inspiration for the card below!!

Hey gals! Why does she have a picture of a doll in this post? The explanation's coming!!

Hope everyone's well! I'm very excited that I was chosen last week to be a Guest Designer at Delightful Challenges Blog site! Many thanks to Wendy and her team of talented ladies!

I used this super-cute image of Briley, because not only did she remind me of a Fisher-Price doll I had as a child, but also because I lived in my overalls/dungarees-dresses were not my thing!! Total Tomboy-that was me!! It's funny, because I was just talking about my Audrey doll to my good friend Lori-well Lor-now you know what she looked like!! LOL! I'm so mad at my Mom for having got rid of her!! So I'm entering the following challenges: High-Hopes Stamps (Female Birthday) Bearly-Mine (Birthday), KB Cute Monday and Paper Playtime (Anything Goes-Use a Digi) and Critter Sketch (use a sentiment).
Have a great day everyone! xox Trish :)
