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.

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.

A Card for Jodi


Well it’s been awhile since I posted anything so I’ll see if I remember how to do it.  I’m so glad for a new year as the past year is one I’d like to forget.  We lost our brother-in-law, I lost my precious little dog Gabby and my computer died just before Thanksgiving.  I finally got a new one before Christmas and then the fun began trying to get everything back on the new one.  Well I think I have it right so we’ll see if it all goes well.

This card I made for our oldest daughter on her 50th birthday….my that means I’m really getting old!


She has a lot of horses and loves everyone so thought this was the perfect stamp to use on her card.


Just a closer look at this adorable image.


A quick look at the inside.   Looks like I might have succeed in doing a post…..yah.


This is the quilt I made her for her big birthday and thought you might enjoy seeing it.

Thanks for stopping by that is if you haven’t given up on me.  Hope this new year is going great for you.

hugs, Ruth Ann

1st November Birthday


Well here I am and I’m  so early, maybe I will get all the other cards I have to make in November done in time!

This one is for one of my granddaughter’s that live in Colorado and loves to ski.  


Sarah was born in Florida and hates the hot weather, she’s always looking forward to winter when the snow flies and it’s time to go skiing.  I put her in bright pink so she couldn’t get lost in all the snow.



Thought I’d give you one more look.  Not real happy with the poinsettia’s but then when you don’t take the time to make them what can I expect.  I’d thought about taking them off but decided against it.   I sprayed some Glimmer Mist on them, some got on the image so her pants are a little splotchy……maybe people will think it’s snowing.

Well that’s it folks thanks for stopping by.  Hope your week is full of blessings.

                         hugs, Ruth Ann

Another Birthday Card

Well here I am again and this time I had to hurry.   Our granddaughter’s birthday is the 10th but her mother decided to fix her a dinner on the 8th since she would working and couldn’t  come on Wednesday.  Thinking I had a couple of days simply flew out the window so don’t look too closely at the coloring oh just the whole card.
This granddaughter is a horse lover and that’s putting it mildly so when I saw this Tilda stamp with the I believe it’s called Angel Horse I knew I had to use it on her card.  So here goes……..
Megin is our dark haired beauty and coloring dark hair is a real challenge for me but I try any way.  I used some Spellbinder dies for a couple of the cuts, found a piece of fence so put that on the one side.  Now for the flowers she loves Sunflowers so thought this yellow flower would do,  found a flower I had made and added greenery and a couple of other flowers and called it done.
A closer look if you really need to check the coloring…
One last look…..oh decided to use some raffia since it kind of looks like hay instead of regular ribbon bow.
Well that’s it folks, thanks for stopping by it’s always a pleasure to hear from you.
hugs, Ruth Ann

A Granddaughter’s Birthday


Well here I am again… to my last  birthday till we hit November so there will be one more before I have a lot more to do.

This card is for my oldest granddaughter who is now practicing law, needless to say we are so proud of her.


Don’t ask my why I picked these colors all I can say is I just did.   I have always loved this window stamp and little Miss Tilda fits in there perfectly.



For some reason she’s a little blurry…..sorry for that.


Last look!   Now I’m going to share a picture of my latest projects.


I took this class and made this duffle bag……yes it’s pretty big.


I then went home and made this mini duffle bag…..think it will be perfect to put my knitting in.


This will kind of give you an idea of different sizes.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a wonderful week.

hugs, Ruth Ann
