I just got a quilling tool at Michael's today for 40% off. Then I started searching the web for ideas on how to quill and found a site that showed you different things you could make. I came up with this card. What do you think?


Couple weekends ago I got together with some friends of mine and had our first card party. It was a BLAST. We had arranged ahead of time to come up with a card to a specific theme and have it completed by the time that day hit. We would then "teach" the card to each person that was there. I had a total of 6 participants involved and the cards were all AWESOME. I am posting pics for everyone to see.

The talented Susan Blue Robot made my header for me!!! I think she did an awesome job. I am anxiously awaiting her response to see if she can teach me how to make one for myself.

I have a lot of Close to my Heart stamp sets that I am selling. I have been trying to find ways to raise money to help offset me not working full time any longer due to the economy downfall. Please keep checking back as this will take me a bit to come up with.
Here is a card that I made for a card contest at a cropping party I went to a couple of weeks ago.

First try at Iris Folding

This was my first try at iris folding. I was going to use this as my christmas card this year but since I have to make so many cards I figured I would use this one for someone special this year.

Mother In Law's Birthday Card

This is my mother in law's birthday card. I used the swirls cuttlebug embossing folder and the cut file from okielady's blog. I used stickles on the hummingbird. She LOVED the card.

Sister In Law's Birthday Card

This is a card for my sister in law who shares my daughter's birthday. I used the paisly cuttlebug embossing folder, paper flowers from Close to My Heart and Iris Folding Technique. I love that technique.

Daughter's Birthday Card

This is a card that I made for my daughter's 20th Birthday this year. I used Flower Soft for the flowers, that stuff is addicting. Stamp used from Close to my Heart. I also used stickles on the vase.

I am new to the whole blogging scene. I have been to other people's blogs but this is my first one. Hopefully it will be well worth the journey.
