About Me

My photo

I am a 37 year old nurse who is currently not working due to medical issues. I have chosen to pass my time crafting, but because I am not working, I have little money to spend on supplies. I have a small stash from while  I was still working but am now using what I have access to around the house. I also use things I can find cheaply at the dollar store, in the dollar bins, on clearance, or buy with coupons at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I also like to shop thrift stores and garage sales for things to use in my crafting. You would be surprised with what you can find if you aren't afraid to prowl a little.

July 4th Flower Boot


Hello again everyone! I know I Have done several Independence day/Patriotic cards and projects already, but I have one more. I wanted to send a non-traditional card to my Parents-In-Law for the 4th of July. When I found the digital image I used, I knew it was perfect for them. My mother-in-law loves flowers and even works in a nursery (even though she is "retired"). She is also always posting unique ways to plant her flowers. So, here is the card I came up with.
Card Base: Plain white card stock.
Blue background: Shimmer paper from DCWV.
Red Polka Dot paper: scrap
Image: Printed on plain white cardstock, is a design from Lauretta See called "Flower Boot." It is colored with Sharpie Markers.
Sentiment: my handwriting. Inked with Stampin' Up Ballet Blue and adhered with foam tape.

I absolutely love this image. I hope you like the card.
