I am saddened as I type this.... word has reached me this morning that one of our own crafters, a wonderful, caring, giving, compassionate, creative lady (LynnK1970 on Youtube) has been murdered along with her 18 year daughter and pets. 

I can not explain the circumstances - I was told by another Youtuber - and she had this web address:     I also searched for North Bend, WA News and found the same info. 

Lynn posted videos all the time on YT and was so loving and caring and just sooo nice.  I can not believe something like this happened to her and her daughter (and pets).  Her husband shot them and set fire to their home.  He is now on the run.

I will keep them all in my prayers - I know one thing:  The angels are making pretty flowers and crafting up a storm now... Lynn my friend... I will miss you.

 Card made for Chris Nolting for a swap called RAINBOW.
I struggled with this, I didn't have a clue what to use?
Bad picture, sorry... This card was for Brenda Wills. 
It was a swap for a card w/a BUG on it.
Mosquito is 3D with wiggle eyes
and beetle has a glass stone over it.

** Inside says:  Heard you caught a nasty bug.

This is a GATEFOLD type card made for Misty Cooper.
2nd photo is the inside of card.
It was for a swap  4/2012

Tonight after meeting Scrubby for dinner - we were in 2 vehicles -afterwards, he took the 2 boys shopping and let me come home alone.  We need a new gas grill this year, think that is what he was looking for. 

They came home 2 hrs later and he handed me a bag, said "Happy Easter".

I opened the bag and inside was my Crop-A-Dile Corner Chomper.  I have been wanting one and haven't wanted to spend the money. (been using a 10 yr old Creative Memories Corner Rounder).

Now all my projects will be soft rounded corners. 
WAHOOO I love him.....  :o)

Good afternoon - here is a card I made for a swap I am in that is called: Stiches.  A card with some kind of stitching on it - either the paper, a stamp, actual sewing, with a pen, just something with stitches. 

I used a background paper that had a couple different types of stitching, and stamped with stamped resist the flower.  Added 3 buttons and a jute bow.

Up next for your enjoyment are three (3) cards I have made for St. Patrick's Day.

Here is a card I made using the IRIS FOLDING technique.  Looks elegant and is really simple to do.  I actually used wallpaper for the dress. (Tip: would be a lot easier to use a thinner paper, wallpaper was just too think overall).

Another batch of handmade greeting cards.  Enjoy.

The Butterflys are done with the Purple Cow PIN IT Tool

My first paper piecing... don't really like it.

Handmade Cards

Here are a variety of homemade cards I wanted to share.
