This week over at the gypsy spot Nilda asked us to make a shaped card. This is my first try at a shaped card with the gyspy but I was pleased with the results. I really had no idea where I was going to start with it. Then it came to me, people fall in love at all times of the year and I was thinking ok, this is fall.....fall 4 you....that will be my card. so I made the card the shape of a pumpkin then added the number 4 and the letter u. I absolutely love this fall paper pack from DCWV. I have almost used my whole pack. I inked the edges of everything and this is the final result. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed making it. I am sure I will be making a lot more shaped cards as fun as this one was to make.

This week over at http://the-gypsyspot.blogspot.com/, Nilda asked us to make something using the weld feature. She wanted us to weld a shape and also weld letters together. I decided to make a snowman completely from George, although I did have to use Mickey and Friends for his hands. I am really proud of how he turned out. I used all ovals and circles for George and then the vest and hat I put on him I got from PDDU. I cut a scrap piece of paper for his nose and then drew his face on and added chalk to his cheeks, the paper is some of my new paper that I just got from stampin up. I really do like the whole pack of this paper. Be sure to go over to the gypsy spot and see all the other creations that all the other talented ladies created using the weld feature and be sure to play along. Hope you tune in next week to see what all of us create next time. Thank you so much for looking and for commenting.
Monday will be my Dad's birthday. I lost him 6 years ago to brain cancer and I have to tell you, it never gets better. It does get easier but it never gets better. I miss him more than words can ever say. I know that he is with me everyday watching over me. I made this card in memory of my dad. He walked so close with God while he was here on this Earth living everyday by his word. I got the idea from a picture that has been in my house for years. My mom had it in our house growing up and I have it in my house now and I am sure that so many of you have it in your house too. It is the Home Interior picture of the old church with the sheep in the field and it has on the front of it "The Lord is my Shepherd". This picture is hanging in my guest bathroom because a very dear friend of mine told me once that you should always have a scripture of some kind hanging in your bathroom because whenever you have company over they are sure to use your bathroom so you want them to be able to see it. I have to tell you, I have a scripture picture/plaque of some kind in every room of my house because I want to make sure that no matter what room people are in at my house they will know that I live by God's word. On the outside it says "The Lord is my Shepherd" and on the inside I put the entire verse on the left hand side and left the right hand side blank. thank you so much for looking and thank you so much for commenting. They really do mean the world to me.
I love Christmas time. It is my absolute favorite time of the whole year. I usually end up with several poinsettias around the house because I think they are just so pretty. I wanted to see if I could create my own layered poinsettia with my Gypsy. I was so happy to see that it was coming together the way I wanted it to. I used plantin schoolbook's leaves for the poinsettia and welded them together to a circe from George. Put a ribbon behind of it and added the fuzzy pom poms to the center. I hope you like how it turned out. I am just loving my gypsy. I love the idea that you can create so many new cuts. Thank you so much for looking and thank you for commenting.
My name is Vicki and I am the mother of two great kids. My daughter Susan is 24 and my son Brandon is 15and is very active in every sport. His favorite sports are golf and baseball. Aside from my kids, i share my life and heart with the most amazing man. Howie has showed me how wonderful like truly can be. we have a wonderful addition to our extended family and her name is Truffles, she is simply an amazing dog and wonderful part of our life. I love making crafts and sharing them with everyone. I think of it as more creating art than making a card or making a necklace. I love starting with just "stuff" and turning it in to something beautiful.
