♥Busy makin' cards♥

My sediments exactly!!!! Everytime I get on the scale it is lying to me, UP and DOWN and all around. I dislike the scale like I dislike the devel himself!

This was a fun card to make and I will probably take it to Inches A Weigh to see if it sells from my box of cards. Plenty of people look at my cards and say how wonderful they are..........but alas.....just nibbles and no bites.

I stamped Garfield with versa mark then embossed him with black. Colored him in with my Mark it pens then layered on black cardstock then a blue card. Punching each corner for a little excitement. The inside of the card says "I have been dieting for the past month. All I've lost is 31 days!"

Here is one of my fun Easter Cards. I found a little lamb at Hobby Lobby 40% off and had to buy her. Learned a fun technique making clouds and thought the little lamb would look cute jumping in the clouds and that she does. She is stamped with black ink, then I used a glazed gel pen and outlined her then place sparkles on her wooly parts and gave her a blue bow.

The card is blue with clouds, Happy Easter is done with versa mark and blue embossing powder. The inside of the card is stamped with two crosses on either side of the word Faith.

Well, have a great day..........can you believe March is almost over...........where is the time going.

Another Group of Mother's Day Cards

So here is another group of Mother's Day Cards I have been making. All fun to make and each one is different from the other. I will be selling these cards seperately on Etsy and at Inches A Weigh at the end of this month. Each card will be selling for $3.00.

If you are interested in buying my cards as a set, let me know by emailing me at and let me know which cards you desire. Scroll down my blog to another set of cards I put up for Mother's Day. I am getting quite a varity of Mother's Day Cards.............makes me wish I still had a mother, gosh, I don't know which one I would send her.

Well, it's Daylight Savings and I turned my clocks ahead, my computer says 12:13, the clocks say 1:13, so I think I shall close this blog for tonight...........

Happy Mother's Day Early,

Yep.......these are portabella mushrooms. Grown in my basement!!!!! They are delicious, saute'd with vegies and imatation crab or over chicken or hambergers or steak or name it MUSHROOMS are always a part of the meal!!!!! I took the largest mushrooms and broke off the stem, put them in a pan and when they were cooked I put a piece of cheese on top and let it melt..............oh gosh it was like eating a hamberger. I was in heaven for a few minutes.

Well, I have another wave (the above mushrooms are the second growth) of mushrooms growing in my little box in the basement. Will be looking for them in the next few days, right now they are the size of a little button. In a couple of days they will be eating size.

I just read that mushrooms are very good for you. Although they've gotten a bad reputation for being largely nutrient-free, they're actually a great source of selenium, a mineral that helps to boost your immune system and decrease your risk of cancer. They're also extremely low in calories (about 20 in a cup), so they help you feel fuller at little cost to your weight loss program.

I have been a mushroom fan for many years. But there was a time I snubbed my nose at them. Looking back now I wish I hadn't. Remember the mushroom and gravy bowl being passed around and I would look for the gravy cause there were so many mushrooms in the gravy..........and these were the mushrooms found in the woods. My stepfather's family would go mushroom hunting and come back with baskets full of mushrooms. My mother's chore was to clean 'em and wash'em and cook 'em and bag'em and freeze'em. Then cook'em when the family got together every Sunday for the big meals. Out came those mushrooms..............gosh I wish I had loved them then.................but I didn't.

Now I can't seem to get enough mushrooms which need to be a part of my many meals, breakfast, lunch or dinner. With so many varities to choose from, you can add mushrooms to soups and salads, or saute' them with a little bit of olive oil and seasongs for a wonderful side dish.

Well, you have a happy mushroom day!
