Made some cute cards this morning

I had some cards to make for a swap, so I whipped them up this morning. I needed an Anniversary card, a Masculine card, and a Sympathy card. Here is what I made, I hope you like them.

This is my Anniversary card. The stamped image on the front is from the T.A.C. T-899 "Flower Collage Trio". The sentiment inside is from the T.A.C. T-160 "Best Wishes". Cardstock is Bazzile, and embossed images on the card from is Cuttlebug.

This is my masculine card. White cardstock is generic, blue cardstock is Bazzile, pattern paper is Leaving Prints. Stamped images on the front are from the T.A.C. T-2820 "Just a note" and I'm not sure what T.A.C. set the Love You is from. The fancy cut on the front is from a Fiskars edge punch.

I really like the Sympathy card best. It looks alot better in person. I'm just not that good with my camera. The cardstock is Bazzill, the pattern paper is from the T.A.C. Willoughby paper collection, generic mini brads, the sentiment is from the T.A.C. T-2771 "With Sympathy" and is popped up. The stamp in the corner is from the T.A.C. T-2940 "Decorative Corners"

Now I need to get them bagged up and sent off to my swap. It has been forever since I scrapped or made anything. I 'm in the mood now, guess I will see what else I can come up with. Have a great Day! Miami County Fair is going on across the street. I think there is a funnel cake in my future! Gotta Love the Fair and carnival food!

This should be easier....

I have just spent the last 2 hours trying to sent up this blog. What an ordeal. It should be easier for those of us who don't know what the heck we are doing..... meaning ME!!!

I have a blog over at and it was so easy to set up. Thank God. But I use that to discuss my weight loss progress and I wanted something for scrapbooking. And I have a Facebook page, and it wasn't that hard to set up, and I even have it linked up to my SparkPeople blog page. I thought with so many people using it would be easier. All I can say is... NOT!

Anyway, I am going to be making some cards and working on some scrapbook pages and wanted a place where I can post them. Lord only knows what a deal that will be. I haven't been doing much scrapping lately. Seems like everytime I sit down at my scrap table my mind just goes blank. Not an idea in my head, nadda, nothing, just empty space!

I did work on a digital scrapbook last night. My first try at digital. I saw a story on a scrapbook show about and it looked so easy. It only took her a few minutes to make an album. Well, yesterday in my e-mail box there was an advertisement from! And it was free, I could try it for free. So, in far less time than it took me to set up this blog, maybe only 15 minutes, I made a cute little album, and it even has music with it! Here is the link to it, it is so cool. Putting in the journaling took the longest. I think I'm going to buy the yearly subscription, but first I wanted to see how much it costs to have the pages printed out, just to make sure it is worth it.

I also wanted to set up a blog for my crochet projects, but think I will look around at other host sites first.I have been crocheting things for different charities and crocheting some things for Christmas.And I want to be able to post them and some of my patterns.

Okay, I think I am done complaining now. Gotta get to bed. Long ay tomorrow followed with my Weight Watcher's weigh in and meeting. It hasn't been a good week for me food wise!

Later... Patti
