Retirement Box Card

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the weekend.
I am trying to organize my craft space so it's kind of a
working weekend for me. I did get the lawn mowed and
watered yesterday so that is one less task. I wonder when
I make it to retirement age if I will have less work to do.
Probably not.
The reason for retirement on the brain is because of the
retirement box card I made.

This is not the regular type of box card that I make. This is
a smaller version that actually will fit in a regular envelope.
I think I like this version best because I don't need to make
envelopes to fit the card. It doesn't mean that I will no longer
be making the other version I will just be making less of
that version.
I hope you like my card.
Until my next post Have A Splendid Day!!!!!!!

Binder Clip Purses

Hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the
weekend. It's not going to be much of a weekend here at
my house. My husband has to work on Saturday that is
how things roll here in the summer time. Oh well that's
On to my projects.
I made a few purses out of the binder clips which is a
great way to use up those small scraps.

I added a ribbon bow so that when you place a picture
or note card  on the clip that it holds them secure. I used
a paper flower on one and a ribbon flower on the other to
give it some pop. Really easy to make. I also used a black
pearl embellishment on both purses. It made the purses
look more finished.
Hope you like my binder clip purses. Until my next post

Ladybird Gorjuss Girl

Hope everyone is doing well.
Sorry for not posting yesterday. My day was full. The
temperature dropped some so I got busy outside trying
to get all my yard work done. Don't want to have to be
trying to get things done outside when we have triple
digit temperatures.
So onto my project share below.
I colored the Gorjuss Girl stamped image (Ladybird)
with water color pencils and then fussy cut so that I
could put her on this large memo clip.
The flowers are a variety of handmade paper and ribbon
along with some that I bought. I'm happy with how
my project turned out.
Sorry I didn't get a closer picture of Ladybird. I was somewhat
in a hurry to get pictures of all the projects that I just forgot to
get close-ups of the image.
I'm having so much fun coloring these images. I have a
few more that I'm working on. Not sure what I'm going
to do with the others yet but once I figure it out I will
be sharing.
Hope you like my project. Until my next post

Little Blue Corvette

Hello there!!!!!
Hope everyone is doing well and staying cool. Sorry for
the late post. The temperatures have been in the triple
digits and I get up early to water my garden and get a few
other things done outside before it gets to hot.
Now that everything is done that needs to be done here is my
This is another Birthday card that I made for the male gender
because I was out of cards. I have plenty for the female
gender. Very typical because the girly cards are more fun
to make.

I am not sure where I got this digi. I know that I have
used it before on some other cards. I hope you like my

Old Truck 2

Hope to find some of you still following me. I know it
has been a few months not because I haven't been creating
anything but because I just had to get a grip on things. There
is so much going on in the world that just really upsets me and
if I opened my mouth I know I would make many enemies
so I took a break
This is a card that I made using a digi image from Digi Doodle
that I got way back in 2012 that I think there has been a name
change so I'm not sure if they are still around.
I colored the image and fussy cut it. I then adhered the image
onto black cardstock and fussy cut it leaving a border of about
one eight of an inch all the way around. Gives it a real shadow
Thank you for stopping by. Hope you like my card.
