Wedding cards......craft lifted!

Hello my Crafty friends!  So sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I mentioned to you all that my youngest daughter has been bitten by the entertainment bug....well, this industry goes through spurts and cycles.  The past few weeks has been in the busy spurt cycle!  When I can, I will let you all know that has been going on...but for now, it's hush hush!

I was asked by a dear friend to make a card for her Mother who is going to a wedding. I really haven't made a wedding card before, so I was drawing a blank.  I went to google and searched for wedding cards with Cricut and I came across a youtube channel for My Pink Stamper.  Her approach was for a simple, yet elegant card.....and I loved it!!  So here are my cards.
On the blue trimmed card, you can see that the black paper has a kind of shimmer to it...close up it looks a little bit like glitter....but not, if that makes sense. 
I used glitter white paper to make the veils.  I put pop dots under the images to give it dimension.
I even made matching envelopes.  I think it adds a classy touch!  Even if I do say so myself!  LOL
Well, that's all for my post today.  I do hope you like my cards and envelopes.  
Thanks so much for coming by.  Please come by again.....and I love to read comments!  (hint hint)

Operation Write Home......

Hello my Crafty friends!  Today my post is about making cards for the Operation Write Home organization.  I am really excited to have an opportunity to be a part of this.  I wish they had such things when my husband was deployed several times during his 20 year marine corps career.  I jumped at the chance to participate!  Here are my cards that I made for them.

Well, here are my cards....finally posted.   I hope you like them.  Thanks for coming by......please come by again. Hope to see you soon!

My Crafty space....

Hello my Crafty friends!  I am doing this blog because I want to share my space where I craft with a crafty spaces  blog hop  over on Hiding In My Craftroom's blog with Laurie.  I have a lot of crafty stuff....still need more shelves to put my things on.
...here is my crafty room!  I share this space with my daughter.  It is the bonus room and she likes to sleep in here on a futon instead of in her bedroom.  SMH  I love this room because of all the natural light it has.  There are 4 large windows...plus my 3 lamps and the overhead light....so it is very well lit.  

...my desk still has lots of stuff on it.....I don't think it is ever really cleaned off!  LOL   There is a pile of stuff on the floor that I want to and need to sell or just get rid of in front of the shelves by the door.  

Well, this is my happy space!!  It still needs some work...more space actually!  LOL  But I do love my room, it brings me peace when I am in there!  
Thanks so much for stopping by!  I do hope you will follow me and come back again!
