A Birthday Wish

I know you can't believe it but yes I am posting a card.  I'm rusty at making cards but at least I'm giving it a go.
This card is for a very special sister-in-law.  I don't have a sister but I would take her in heart beat.

I bought a new mat for my Silhouette Cameo and experimented with it and cut out my cute little Tilda and the log she's sitting on with.  Sure beats cutting it out with scissors.  I have to admit I did do a little touch up with the scissors but very little at that.

Thanks for stopping by I know it's been a long time and now that my good friend Janie is back home maybe I will get back in the swing of things.

Haven't figured out how to put water marks on using my iPad yet.

A couple of Silhouette projects

The first one is a T Shirt I did with Vinyl Heat Transfer, the next one is card I did using Foil, next I decorated my daughter's mail box and the final one is a sign I made for her so people wouldn't us the door on the garage.  The last two I used permanent vinyl.

My new ride at least to me....

We had a truck and decided to get something smaller and better gas mileage.  This what we ended up with and boy does it have a lot of bells and whistles.
I want post some of the things I've been making using my Silhouette.

Thanks for stopping by I know I haven't posted anything in a long but I hope to do better in the future.

Not sure if this will work

Haven't posted anything for ages so thought I'd give it a try and post a Valentine card I did for my husband a couple of years ago.

Happy Birthday Sydnee


This card is for our youngest granddaughter who now is no longer a teenager.   Gosh where have the years gone? 


When I saw this adorable Tilda image I knew  it was the perfect one for  my beautiful granddaughter.   I set out to see if I could find a background that I could use with this cutie and this is what I came up with.


Just a quick look at the flowers  I put on this little card.


One last look at our little beauty.


Thought I’d share a duffle bag that I made for another granddaughter.  Sarah asked me to make a bag for her since  she does a lot of traveling and she needed a new one.

Thanks for stopping by, I always love hearing from you.

hugs, Ruth Ann

Happy Birthday Steve


This card is for our son-in-law Steve, he is a very special man and we are so blessed to have him  in  our family.


He loves to fish and can fish all day.  Thought this was the perfect card for him.

Thanks for stopping by, I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything.   I will try and get back in swing of things.  Hope you have a wonderful week-end.

Happy Birthday Leanne


Wanted to share with you a card I made for my sister-in-law.  She and my brother work the summers at  Glacier National Park in one of the gift shops and she love huckleberries.  So off to see what I could come up with and  this Tilda with blueberries was it.


You might notice that I have what looks like quilt blocks behind her and that’s because she is also a quilter.  The tree with the tiny flowers on it is a die that was a gift from my friend Janie.  I even did some embossing on the blue paper and of course I loaded it up with  flowers.


Thought I’d share with you my latest bag…’s actually a Carry On bag for traveling.   Not sure if I want to ever make another one but then you never know.

Thanks for stopping by and I always love hearing from you.

hugs, Ruth Ann

Happy Birthday Claudia


The card I’m posting today is for the lady that owns the quilt shop that I work part-time at.  She is a very lovely person and a joy to work for.


Besides being a wonderful quilter she’s also an avid gardener so I thought this would be the perfect card for her.


Here’s another look……..


One more..


Now I will share what I made for her and no it’s not a quilt or a purse.

I got some vinyl out and along with my Cameo decided to make her something with her name on it….


First I had to make a trip to our Lowe’s store where I purchased 2 different sized glass blocks…..then I decided to use the smaller one and this is what I came up with.   I added some wide ribbon and a few flowers and I was done!

Now I needed a gift bag but didn’t want to go to town and buy one so I started my search for something I had here.  I found the perfect size but it had a business name on it.   I cut out 2 solid blue squares from my card stock then went to my Cameo and found a Happy Birthday in my library resized it, cut it out and this is what I ended up with.


I really had fun doing all of this so I just might have to do it again.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope your week has been a good one and you are looking forward to the week-end.

A Birthday Wish for Janie


Today I’m going to share with you a card I made for my very good friend Janie for her birthday the end of February. 


I had fun making this card for her because it fits her to a T.  When she makes her trips over to Idaho she is always building something, bird houses, planters or what ever comes to mind to build.


I was going through some of my old SU stamps and ran across this perfect tool box and decided it should go on her card.


She loves flowers so I had to put an array of flowers to her card.


One last look.


I had made her a purse last  year for her birthday which was made out of pastels so thought I’d make her one just a little brighter.  That way she could change purses when ever she wanted to.

Thanks for stopping by my blog… it when you leave a comment.

hugs, Ruth Ann

Happy Birthday Matt


I finally decided to sit down and try my hand at making a post which I haven’t done in awhile….so here goes.

This card was made for my grandson who was born on my birthday 24 years ago so that makes him really special.  He graduated from college and was having a terrible time trying to find a job in his field.  So he joined the Army and is being trained in the medical field which I think will be perfect for him.  So now  for the card.



Well this new computer is giving me fits…..won’t let me make the picture bigger…..ugh.

As you can see this is definitely a card for a young man in the army.  I started my search for a stamp set that had to do with armed forces and wasn’t sure I would have any luck but Stampin Up came through like a champ.


Well it did it again….I can make it wider but it won’t let me make it longer.  Oh well at least you can see it.


Thought I’d share a little quilt I made as a sample for the quilt shop I work at.  This one is home now and I’m sure some lucky guy will get this down the road.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will have a wonderful week full of Joy.
