I needed a thank you card for a special friend, so I used the same design I had just used over the week end at our swap . I added some feminine touches and used colors she likes...I sure hope she likes it, I do.
The card base is river rock, with not quite navy and dp all by SU, I used SU's scalopped oval and large oval punches, and pop dots for the oval...the stamp belongs to a SU set as well.the butterfly was cut with a cuttle bug die and embossed with a one of the folders that came with the set

I am off to run errands today, in a morning of snow looks so pretty, I hope it does not create any problems for me along the way !...

I hope you all have a great day, and thanks for stopping in again.

My card from the masculine swap

As I said I would show you my card for the swap, here it is. We had a great time and the cards were all awesome...they had great colors, wonderful designs and ideas ... hope we can do another swap soon... I need to upload all of the cards, and when I get that done I will post some of them and give credit to who deserves it ... My oldest daughter and I both prefer this card with out the sentiment in the upper left corner, what do you think?

I will post my card for the swap and maybe some of the others ones the first part of next week.
So til then, I hope you all have a great week end... I sure plan to.

Happy Valentines Day...

Here is a card that I "remade" I started with a card that my youngest daughter designed her first year as being a SU demo. It really is straight, honest... but my scanner has a mind of it's own. I liked the main image, but I thought this paper worked well with it, so I simply, and I do mean very simply, changed her card a bit... I liked the clean lines, and the simple look... thanks for looking and I hope your day is full of love...

Hi, let me introduce myself...

Hello, I am a stay at home wife, married to a great guy for 30 plus years...I have 2 grown and beautiful daughters,and between them,they have blessed me with 4 wonderful grand children. My days are spent playing with my Shih Tzu named Daisy , playing in my craft room that was name "Soni's Front Porch" by a dear friend.
It is an enclosed front porch that we have turned into a craft / computer room and now have added a tread mill, so it is a busy place.
I have wanted to be able to share pictures of my family and creative work for some time now, and my friends thought I should have a blog...So here I am.I hope to be able to say hello, share more about my family and my life and even show some of my creative ideas...
I hope to post a card or two soon and maybe some pictures so you can see who we all are...

Have a great day now, I am off to look for some sun shine...
