I needed to make a Valentine Card last night for today, so just before I retired for the evening I set out to make one....then it turned into 4 cards in minutes...I love when that happens....we are having a major wind storm here, last night and today...the barometric pressure dropped drastically due to a sudden temperature change, and at 3 a.m. I was in a migraine state, that is still lingering, but much better than the last 5 hours....I hope you will enjoy these cards, and it will inspire you to make some too ! Have a BLESSED DAY!

This has been one crazy week...I had a barometric migraine Monday and today. This set my housework, laundry, and usual things back two days...I have entered my first swap....making 12 identical cards is somewhat pressured for me, as I have NEVER done this before...I am somewhat a perfectionist....so I examine my cards way to much....more stress,,,,smiles....I know that they are going to 11 other seasoned STAMPERS ....more stress....hoping and praying mine are up to others standards....there is a list to follow....more stress.....I am half way to the finish line....lol...then I joined a 6x6 scrapbook swap....oh my shattered nerves...am I crazy?....lol...
This is a wonderful blog I found....a shout out to THE JULES BOX...she is terrific in mixed media...Mini Albums, ...cards....actually everything I saw on her videos was top notch...if you like SHABBY CHIC....VINTAGE....you go visit her blog....she won't disappoint you....plus, she has a craft store, with wonderful products....like this glue gun, the one she uses on her videos, with the metal tip to get in small places....and so much more....I bought one for 10.50.... Where can you get one for that price?.....
Well, I will keep you posted on my swaps...lol....how do people do these all the time?...lol...I would be a basket case of nerves.....lol...take care everyone, and please enjoy this Valentine Card....

This is the first card this morning...I love this technique to pieces...the Swallow Tail Butterfly in PINK embossing powder was stunning...I love pink, black, and antique white mix in paper choices...the Mellon Mambo embossing powder is nice too....I love the stacking effect too...it looks so dramatic....
I have two cards I made to video tape later....they are using an unusual technique also...but oh so cute....see you later...enjoy this technique
Oh my, this week has been a week of business, to say the least....my hubby came home from work Monday at 8 p.m., and he had gotten 8 pieces of shrapnel in his eye....he had them surgically removed at 1 a.m. Yesterday his Dr. Made him an appointment to see an eye specialist....I couldn't see anything in his eye, it was so microscopic....I hate anything in my eye, so, the feeling of metal shrapnel ...goes with the job....must be super irritating, to say the least...especially when the freezing come out....YIKES. I wanted to cancel my hair appointment, but, hubby said there was nothing I could do for him, so off I went...I was pampered by 135 foils...or MORE....it was a 5 hour hair adventure....loved it...came home..made tacos...and actually got to bed at a decent hour....Last week was my FRIEND WEEK....crazy busy...I am going to spend some time in my craft room today....I will have some photos for you later in the day....Enjoy YOUR day, and may it turn into ONE BLESSED DAY ! Take care friends...please remember my hubby in your prayers.....talk soon....

This is the tutorial of the zipper rose, that was on the previous Mini Page. I hope that you are able to use this technique on one of your projects. I had to make this one using a plastic zipper, instead of a metal one, but it turned out nice all the same. The metal zippers have a distinct look that I like for anything that is going to be Vintage. The gold is especially nice, as shown in a previous video. Thank you once again for dropping by my blog...have a blessed evening.
Thanks so much for stopping by and viewing the Mini Album's progress. I have one more video to place on here for you. I hope all is well with everyone. It is beautiful here today, cold but sunny. I am working on getting this Mini completed before I turn 60.....haha Please enjoy....

Good Evening everyone,....I went to get my oil change today, and after that, my mom and I went to do our pilgrimage to the Niagara Thrift Stores....We had a wonderful day together. It was Senior's Day at our shop we love to go to, and the woman at the till asked if my mom was a senior....which my mom replied, no it's this lady....which was me...and we laughed so hard at that....my mom is so sweet, that to hear her say that was hysterical...I told the lady that she was 84, and my mom quickly spoke up and said," I'll have you know I'm not that old, I'm 82...hahaha I really felt bad,..for a second, because if you know my mom, she thought I was just trying to be funny....yikes, I have to be careful...haha We find it funny to go thrift store shopping, because my mom doesn't but a thing...I mean it...except for today, she actually bought a scarf...lol The woman told us I could put my purchases through as a senior, so that was a major bonus. I bought this vintage wind up huge clock with the big ringers at the top....it was made in west Germany, and it was cream in color, so I instantly fell in love with it...I bought some German made pots and pans that were heavy duty, and looked like new....they have the temperature round thing on the lids, which I thought was interesting....Someone from Germany must have cleaned out their house, because everything is now in mine...hahaha I bought 2 vintage looking pillows for my new chair....I will post a pic in the morning. Let's see....3 large glass storage jar set, ummmm 7 new glass mugs, and 6 ceramic ones too! A friend that was helping us move dropped my box of mugs 25 of them, and everyone broke in pieces, so that is why the mugs....I bought a pin stripe suit and three sweaters......I think that was it...haha It was a real nice haul....haha I'm waiting for my video to download on the main computer, so that is why I am boring you with the shopping news of the day....It is my son's Birthday tomorrow, and I haven't made him a card...haha how funny is that? I make cards, and he hasn't got one made for him yet.....I'll do it in the morning....Well, I am going to go and check on my video, thanks again for stopping by and checking out the video section, and reading the news of the day. God Bless, and have a wonderful week.

I am having a wonderful craft evening. I posted on SC if anyone would like to make a Mini album with me using 100 percent SU materials. I have one lady that wants to go along with this. I am working like a busy bee getting it to the half way mark. It is actually the cutest little Mini ......not because I made it, but because all the colors are coming to together. I picked a real nice concept for the binding of it. I cant wait to get working on the pages now to make them my own. I am going to place the Mini on youtube, and step by step instructions to make every single item in the cute as ever book. I am making an extra of everything that I am putting together and placing all the measurements on them, so when the viewer is watching they have all they will need to make this same mini. I didn't think I could put together something like this, because of the issue of not having everything I thought I would need to make it look as good as those on the you tube channel. I have a surprise for them...hahaha I surprised myself, let alone anyone else. The creating of it just kept flowing, so I went with every thought that came to my brain. I can't wait to finish this so I can post it for you to see. Take care and enjoy part 2 of my Valentines Card. God Bless
I actually loved making this card, and thought I would share this with you today. I am going to take more pics, and a tour of my new craft room, and I am almost finished my first Mini, with a second one on the side waiting for me to give it some attention. haha I will post some pics later to day, as I am cleaning out our basement. We are having a terrible wind storm today, which prevented me from going shopping and buy a laptop for me in my Craft Room. smiles I have to come downstairs to the main office of the business to download video, pics, etc. and that is the reason I don't pay enough attention to my blogging. Not in the future though, once this laptop is in my room upstairs. Have a wonderful day today. I will let you know once I'm able to get to Buffalo, and buy me a laptop....hahahaha What a sale Best Buy is having. I pray that I don't miss out on the one I want. Take care
