Unfortunately we were a victim of TS Isaac. I live in the area of Florida that was hardest hit by major flooding from the storm.

We made our 2 car garage part bedroom and laundry room years ago when my Mother in Law lived with us. Today I use the bedroom as my craft room until Isaac took it from me when he decided to flood it. So, long story short we had to move everything out to pull up the carpet and dry everything out. Good news is that the drywall was far enough up that it didn't get wet. A few furniture pieces that were particle board were also ruined but all my supplies made it through. It may be a few weeks before I have a real place to craft again. My stuff is all over the place right now and very unorganized. It's driving me crazy and it's only been 4 days.

We had other damage but nothing we can't handle. We are sending our thoughts and prayers to those in Louisiana that were also struck by Isaac.

No more hurricanes this year please!

Fly Away.....

I made this card for a challenge over at Bitten by the Bug2, then forgot where I saw the challenge so I figured I would just share my design, then totally forgot to even post it.  One of my co workers was looking for a Sympathy card and I knew I had this one.  Went to my blog to show her and couldn't find it, then found it as a draft.  lol............
So I hope you enjoy it anyway................I love the these papers and love the way it turned out.  I had to try out the Sew Easy so I used a coupon and purchased it at Michael's.  It didn't work very well on two layers of papers, I had to use a pin to make the holes bigger and by the time I was at the end of the stitches the floss was all tangled.  Next time I will only try one layer and see if that works better.

On the Farm

I made this card for my Niece who loves to ride Horses. She turned 12 this year and has grown up to be such a beautiful young lady.  I think she will enjoy her card. I forgot that I wanted to take a picture of the inside after I had already written in it.  So used the erase tool on my editing software to blur what I wrote.  (that's why it looks funny).  I originally wanted to use the hat on the outside but didn't like the way it looked, so I just decorated the inside.

Campin Critters

I finally purchased Campin Critters Cartridge, I love it.  All of the cuts are so cute.  I used my gypsy to weld together two background pieces to make the card.  I made it large enough to fit in a 7.25x5.25 envelope.  I wanted to make it bigger so I could cut the Deer out bigger.  I love the way it turned out, so cute.

Cricut: Campin Critters, Deer cut at 2.5"
