Another Cardmaking Saturday

Hello Everyone! I had made up my mind not to make anymore cards until after the conference, but my friend and I got together at her house Saturday morning about 11:00 a.m. I don't know what the problem was but it took me 5 hours to make 1 card. I had chosen 4 cards to make and she had asked me why that was all I chose. I didn't have an answer for her until I was working on that first card. Everything I picked up, I dropped. I was not cutting straight. I couldn't decide on which stamp to use. You name it and it happened while making my first card. I finally got it finished. I thought to myself, if each card takes 5 hours, I would have to spend the night, come back to her house again to finish, or finish them when I got back home. It was almost enough to make me pack up and go on home. Wow!!! I haven't had things to go like that in a while.. But I made it through and these are the cards I made with the exception of the first card on the left. I made that one one night at home. I don't know if I will be making anymore this week. I have to have eye surgery on Thursday and I don't know how long it will be before I can get back to cardmaking. Hopefully everything will go alright and I will be back soon. Keep checking back. I will keep you informed on my progress. So until next time . . . . .

Moving to Fast

Hello Everyone!!! I have been on a roll making cards. As a matter of fact, I have been going so fast that I forgot to blog these. I made them and had put them away. I had to get them back out and blog them so you all could see them. Hope you like what you see. I will try to slow down now. We have to get ready for the Women's Conference on the 1st and 2nd of October. I'm pretty excited. I have never displayed my cards in this manner before. I'm hoping people will be as excited about seeing them as I am displaying them. So until next time . . . . .

Brown and White Night

Hello Everyone! It's been a crazy day but I decided if I would make some cards then maybe I would calm down and relax. I have been trying to get my car repaired and you just won't believe what I have been through and the miles I have gone. Not only that, I thought all was well when the guy brought my car back to me, but to my surprise my car had been wrecked and later my sister called and said my front passenger side tire was wobbling bad. What in the world is going on?
ooh, ooh it's just a test. How well do I remember those words from my pastor during one Sunday service. So after I realized that it will be alright, I sat down and made these cards. Somehow it turned out to be Brown and White night but of course chocolate is one of my favorite colors. I did make another masculine birthday card. Hope you like the cards. Until next time . . . . .

Seeing Double

Hello Everyone!!! The time has come for me to get back to making cards on a weekly basis. Don't think you are seeing double, but these are the cards I made. If you notice, the cards for sister, one is a belated birthday and the other is an on-time birthday. My sister politely told me that I didn't give her a birthday card this year. Her birthday was August 2nd. Well I had to make her a belated card. She told me she don't care how late it is (lol). The other 2 cards are masculine. I noticed I don't have any cards that would be for a man. Oh no, how could I! (lol). Please forgive me gentlemen. I will be making more in the near future. Remember to keep looking, Until next time . . . . .

Getting Back To Business

Hello Everyone!!! Well my granddaughter has gone back home. Her dad, my son, came to get her this past Saturday. As usual we both cried and my son just looks at us. It just really hurts my feelings when she has to leave. I love her sooooooo much!!!
Enough of that before the tears start rolling again. Last night I decided to make some cards. These are the ones I chose to make. I have to get my creative juices flowing again cause I have some events coming up. Hopefully I will be blogging on a regular now. Thanks for stopping by. Please take a minute and sign my guest book or leave a comment. Until next time . . . . .

Made by Amara

Hello Everyone! I realize the weekend passed and there were no cards made by me. This pass weekend was one in which the people in our town welcome back people who moved away. There are all kinds of events during the 8th of August Celebration. Most of my family came home and we really had a good time. My son brought my granddaughter home with him. He only stayed overnight because he went on to Vegas for his vacation. I have my granddaughter here with me for the week. She wanted to make her mom a card and this is what she came up with with a little help from me. We probably will be making more cards throughout the week because it's to hot to do anything outside. So keep looking. Until next time . . . . .

Another Productive Day

Hello Everyone!!! My day started off by picking some cards that I would try my hand a making. My friend and I had planned a day of cardmaking as we usually do every once in awhile. After I got myself together, I headed to her house around 10:30 a.m. I knew I had a few stops to make on the way and we wanted to get started around 11:00 a.m. Well I arrived, we got started and before we knew it time had passed on by. These cards are what I produced this Saturday. Where did the time go. I left coming back home around 10:00 p.m. I guess you could say I enjoy days like this. Hope you like my cards and as usual, thanks to those who I get my inspiration from. Until next time . . . . .

I Hope . . . . .

Hello Everyone! I hope when you stop by to take a look at my cards, you like what you see. I hope I am an inspiration to you and the only way for me to know is for you to leave me a comment or sign my guestbook. I hope that you enjoy cardmaking or even scrapbooking as much as I do. I haven't been doing much scrapbooking lately. I can't seem to get away from cardmaking long enough. I have so many pictures that I could spend years scrapbooking and still not get them all done. I love taking pictures where ever I go. I guess you could say I'm like a person torn between two loves. Scrapbooking was my first love and that I will never forget, but my second love (cardmaking) has just came along and taken over. Well enough about my love life (lol). Here are a few cards I made during this past week. Hope you like them. Until next time . . . . .
