My Dad asked me to make a card to congratulate my cousins daughter on obtaining her blackbelt. This is truly a wonderful accomplishment and I really wanted to make it speacial for her. My Dad thinks an aweful lot of this girl and he had never asked me to make him a card before so this card had to be special.
I have to say that I am really pleased at how it turned out. There wasn't much stamping on this card only to make the background paper with the words Karate and Blackbelt. I never had any paper that I thought was appropriate so I remember seeing a background like this on someone's blog a while ago. I am sorry that I can't remember to give her credit.
I really hope my Dad and Riley like this card. I think they will though.

I spent the afternoon with my friend Kelly yesterday and this is one of the projects that we made. I had a great afternoon and it gave us a chance to catch up and spend time together doing what we both love so much. Tks Kelly for a great afternoon.
I always find it hard getting back to making cards after Christmas as I always find that I need a bit of time off. For me I make so many cards and Christmas things that I actually turn myself off for a bit. It feel good to be back at it though.
Should be back again tomorrow night with the other project that we made.
Hope you all are enjoying your evening.

Isn't that a joke. Me an seamstress. I think not! For anyone who knows me they know this could not be further from the truth. This is the first card that I have even sewn on. What do you think? For the first time I don't think it is too bad. I have had this particular sewing machine for almost three years now and to tell you the truth I never ever put thread into it until this week. Shame on me. Since it was such a long time since I used one I guess I was a bit intimidated. Not good I know. Well it is conquered now. I think I need better thread though. This stuff keeps cracking.
How are you all doing? Been awhile since I was on here. I thought it was high time that I got back at creating again. I want to make a bunch of cards to have on hand for occasions that come up.
The cat on this card is from on old SU set that I ordered on SCS a few years back called Cattitude. This cat just cracks me up. He reminds me of a ginger cat that we used to have named Misty. He always seemed to looks all pissed off too.
The paper is from a pack I bought a few years back at Walmart called Cats and Dogs.
There are alot of cute papers in there and over the next while you might get to see more of it as I build my card collection.
Hope you all are enjoying your week.
Be back probably on the weekend with another card.

I made this card for my dh to give to a friend at his work that recently retired. He has always wanted more time to do some gardening so I thought this stamp set would be appropriate. My DH was pleased with how it turned out.
This is just a short post today as I am heading out to get some more Christmas stuff done.
Hope you making out well with your holiday plans.
Be back soon.
