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.

Swirl Tree

Happy Friday Everyone! I have a very simple yet beautiful card (I think, anyway) for Christmas.

Outlawz: Twisted Thursday Christmas in July
3 Girl Jam: Anything Goes with Ribbon
Docerela Stamps: 2 Color Combo

Paper: Black cardstock from Michaels. White Cardstock from Wal-Mart.
Ribbon: From my stash
Embossing folder: D'Vine Swirls
Rhinestones: Recollections
Cricut Cartridge: Ultimate Creative Sampler

The card only took at 15 minutes to make. It's a great card if you need something quickly.

Have a great day!
