A Red Carnation

I love Carnations, I think Red Carnations, Red Roses and of course Diamonds should go together in a girl's life, don't you ? Do any of you remember the song " A White Sports Coat and A Red Carnation" or was it "A Pink Carnation" LOL I guess I am getting in the Valentine spirit after all. Just had some time today and my husband did dishes, Yeah, this just started since we got to Iowa :) anyway had a c.d teaching I wanted to listen to so went to my desk and plugged in my computer and started to play with this and some other images. If you could see the images I have finished and haven't put on cards, you would be shocked. It is easier for me to color images where we travel and stay then to take out the cutter and tape and papers and put the cards together. I am rambling aren't I. Oh my and I have only had 2 cups of coffee today LOL Anyway, thank you for taking a peek at my cards. Hugs and stay warm,it is 7 degrees here and snow and ice and wind. Hugs, Cathy

Card for my Grandson in Afghanistan

This is a simple card but is perfect for my Grandson Matt, who just turned 2 years old and is a mine sweep in Afghanistan (one of the most dangerous jobs) I am so proud of him and he is my hero. I am enjoying having time to stamp even if almost all of my supplies are in Arizona and I am in Iowa. Like I said before, you can't stop a stamper. Hugs, Cathy

Kisses (TLC)

This card was so much fun.I love this image. It is going to my daughter. I think she needs a "Mama" fix LOL. I hope she doesn't see this post. Anyway, I must stay away from the stamping table for the rest of the night, so I think I will go make some Organic Popcorn from Trader Joe's LOL Hugs, Cathy

Celebrate (TLC)

I love this image and I love the birds, I have a beautiful view of the bird feeder from my chair. Though it is not Arizona with the sunshine, it is Iowa with the cold, snow and rain and icy roads today. But the birds are still beautiful. So I had to make this card LOL The birds on the bottom do not quite show up because they are all together in a group. And I love sparkle so they all had to sparkle LOL hugs,Cathy K

TLC Crown

This picture does not do this image justice. It is such a beautiful graphic digi and I couldn't get my camera to show the detail I wanted it to. I love this image but finally just had to realize it was not going to show up on here as awesome as this image is. Hugs, Cathy

One Smokin' Mama Birthday Card

There is a story behind this card. I have a friend who always calls me "one smokin' mama" and no I do not smoke cigarettes (I don't even know how to spell it LOL) anyway her birthday is here and I saw this image and had to use it for her . She laughed when she saw it and when her husband sees it he will know and laugh too. I still do not have many stamping supplies with me and I sure miss my cuttlebug. But you can't stop a stamper, right? LOL Hugs, Cathy


This is a very simple Valentines card but I love Paulette's images and sentiments over at Create With TLC http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/. If you have never visited there, you should take a look. She has a sentiment and image for every occasion. Just a heads up LOL The image below this one is one of her's :) Hugs, Cathy

TLC Image I love

I absolutely love othe this image, It reminds me of my sisters graduation picture years ago. For some reason it has a shadow above her lip and I took a number of pictures and it is still there. I wonder if it is because of the red glitter. Maybe I will do another image and see if it shows up on the that one . Hugs, Cathy
