I Brake For Lovely Hats.

Hi Everyone, I've been MIA for a while.  Much to my surprise, I found I had several arteries to my heart blocked and that led to by-pass surgery.  So this is my first time back.  

I chose this vintage looking hat stamp from IBFS.  It is called "Hats".  The background paper is by DCWV and called French Country Stack.  I colored the hats with Promarkers and shaded the oval with chalk.  I also added some of the chalk to the doilies so they wouldn't look so bright white.  

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will go to the IBFS store.  They have so many stamps, I know you can find something you love.  Be sure to use my code, SAVE10 PEGGY, to receive a 10% discount on your purchases.  God Bless You!!! Peggy

Rose Square Banner Card

Here is another card I made using the Anna Griffin Lovely Layered Cards cartridge.  This cartridge is not available yet from Cricut.  It was released on HSN on the July 1 Craft Day.  I like how you just choose your paper, cut out the layers and assemble the card & envelope.  The sentiment is also part of the cartridge.

Thank you for visiting with me today.  I'm in a bit of a hurry because I have to go to the doctor today.  God Bless You!!!! Peggy

I'm Finally Making It Back

For all you wonderful crafters who have prayed for and cheered me on during my open heart surgery and recuperation, I am most grateful.  I would not be here today if it weren't for the Lord and the love and care of my sweet family.  Donna made sure I did not have to do anything nor be by myself for 4 weeks.  She is still coming by and doing things for me.  A mother could not ask for a better daughter.  BIG HUGS, DONNA.  I love you.

Though I have been incapacitated, it has not stopped me from online shopping when Anna Griffin had a show on HSN.  I purchased some new cartridges, embossing folders, AG Minc machine which I will be showing you in the days ahead.  I made myself get in my craft room yesterday and today.  One of the new cartridges I bought was AG Lovely Layered Cards.  It is filled with cards that you just cut the layers out and put them together.  The hardest thing is getting your paper together.

This is my favorite on the whole cartridge. It's called Botanical card.  All the layers make for a rather thick card but it has an envelope included in the file.  

Thank you for your support and for visiting with us today.  God Bless You!!!!!  Peggy
