Bella Fellas

What every well stocked card hoarder needs! Yep you guessed it, guys for guys. To finish out my birthday cards I decided to make some fellas.

This one is Golf a Fella. I love how versatile these stamps are from Stamping Bella. You can have several of the same image and with different colors and co-ordinating papers, they can be different.

Here is Fix a Fella! LOL. I know someone that will be getting this one on his birthday. LOL.

If you want to see more fellas and bellas, go to and you will find a whole lot more there. Geeze, I still don't know how to do the click here and it will take you there thing. Sorry, you can copy and paste and get there.

Thanks for looking.

Have a blessed day

Penny Black cards

I was in the mood for birthday cards, and seeing as my stash of birthday cards are very low, I decided to make more using Penny Black Stamps.

This first one has 4 hedgehogs playing with balloons. I thought this would make a great birthday card, so the inside says happy birthday.

My second card has 3 mice gathering around a cupcake. How cute is that?

Thanks for looking. Any and all comments are welcome.
Have a blessed day.

House mouse cards

Here is a birthday card with some House Mouse stamps I have, the inside says "with Birthday wishes".

Here are two litle guys with their party hat.

The inside says Happy Birthday.

Have a blessed day.

White out

From a beautiful sunset last night to white out conditions today, what a transformation!

Can barely see the house down the hill. Sigh, how many more weeks left until spring?

Be blessed.

Sunset in Maine

Here is the sunset at my place last night. What a beautiful sight

May your days be blessed.

Pink on pink

Here is my pretty pink posey on pink cardstock. See all the layers of the flowers I put on it.

I used my oval nesties again for the focal point. This time I have one in white to accent the pink and the flowers.

Another side view of the front.

The inside has the shimmery pink paper. Really doesn't show up too good here. Believe me it looks beautiful.

Here is another shot of the front. I used more pink half pearls to finish it off.

Let me know what you think.

Pink flowers on brown

Here is a side view of the depth of the flowers I layered on this card. I used my oval nestie for the focal point of flowers.

the inside of the card. Cannot have just a plain white inside now can we?

I have pierced the brown cardstock and used pink half pearls for accents.

If you click on the pictures you can see them better.

May all your days be blessed.

New card

Here is the inside of the card. This paper shimmers and is a pretty shade of pink.

This is to show you how many layers I put on this angel.

Here is the whole front of the card. If you look closely (just click on picture) you can see the pricking I did on the front.

I added pink half pearls to the front to finish it off. Now let me know what you think.

A Glimse into the Kendall household

I took this picture about a week and a half ago because it is one I do not see often. The house at the corner looks bathed in fog that froze onto the trees. Quite a splendid picture I thought. When the fog got up to us, the air had warmed up enough so the trees here did not freeze.

Here is a picture of Destiny and Emily in the kitchen. Destiny asked to wash the dishes (can you believe it?) and Emily is doing the heavy lookin on! LOL. Emily wanted to help with the dishes, but since she is so small (only 4) I told her she can help in a year or two. In the mean time she is getting pointers from her sister.

I can honestly say I do NOT remember asking my mom if I can do the dishes at any age! LOL.

May you all be blessed on this day as well as the rest of your life.

It's a BOY!

No, no, I'm not having a boy, really! But I know someone who is. LOL. This is a commissioned job and I am almost done!

But I have very sad news. So sad in fact, I felt the desire to fall to my knees and scream, no, no NO! What could this be? Not anything to do with the baby, at least the baby the cards are for. No, this is because I BROKE MY SEWING MACHINE this morning! My trusty friend, the one who has been with me for (gasp) 20 years now, is on her way to Ken, at Yardgoods Center in Waterville to be repaired, and cleaned. I hope Ken will take good care of MY baby while he has her. I also hope he can fix her up with a tune up and a cleaning.

But enough of my woes, here are some of the cards I have been working on. I am not saying any names here, because the soon to be grand mother wants this to be a surprise. Need I say more?

These cards are made with glittered papers from an old DCWV paper stack, the greetings were printed off my computer, and the adorable garaffe from CTMH's stamp set called Nursery Bash.

I stamped the garaffe's onto creme brulee (again CTMH), colored them with the CTMH makers black and autumn terracotta, cut them out and pop dotted them to the DP.

I sewed around the greetings, to make it look like a quilt block, and glued it to the DP as well.

So, tell me what you think?
