Hi Karla,

Thanks for the tutorial Karla, there are always a few secrets to be discovered (blush blush I do use plastic gems sometimes...but not those very ugly ones and I do promise to use glass only in the future). I like that picture of you Randy and the poodle! And that pond...ahhhh so awesome!! The best part is that you have made that together! Isn't it nice to work together on creative projects? The whole world should do that more! Even better; you should give work shops at world topmeetings, now how does that sound mr. Bush? (I guess that's his secret wish too, so secret that he doesn't know that himself). Believe me, the whole world would look better if you were giving one or two workshops at the beginning of those meetings!


that was such a fun post to read. loved the tutorial on the cards; gonna make some! and it was so sweet that you were helping Randy out like that. love the painting you guys did. fun fun,


What beautiful cards! This is one of the things I love about blogging!


Thank you for the tutorial!

great tips....

It's so nice to see how someone else creates! Especially if you don't have a crafting buddy! I love the pond! That is amazing...almost as amazing as the stair project!


Beautiful cards! I love the little details on each card, especially the rhinestone. Your fish pond painting is awesome!

Hi Karla, Another great tutorial. I just love your tutorials. Between the text and pictures it make it so easy for all of us to follow along.

thank you


Happy 19th(by the time you read this it will be), Karla. Popped in to see what you're up to and got a fun tutorial. Will start checking the mail box today for the package -packages from that area will make it here in two days sometimes...it's going to be fun to see which tags I got. ..."insane, overstocked, stockpile of crazily hoarded old beautiful papers" just might be a good quote if you ever get the desire to draw some of the piles of papers that you have hoarded. Well...have a joy joy filled rest of the week Karla.


Karla, what a wonderful tutorial and beautiful cards:)

Bobbie Valentine

And who wouldn't love Randy?????????
I enjoyed your tips too, but it's more fun when we are all together.



Fabulous card tutorial. Thanks :)


Cool cards! I also like the Martha glue pen! But I never knew about the 'Distressing ink pad', I will have to run right out to Micheals and find it!


what a great sister you are! Thanks for sharing the tutorial with us! I will definately use some of your tips myself!


Man, you're a talented gal! I love your work because it is always very noticably "you".

Cute pic of you and your brother! :)

Mary Issabella

Thanks so much for the how too's...Mary


Beautiful cards!! Thanks for the tutorial!!


Great tutorial and lovely cards. Thanks so much for sharing this. I always forget about using the sanding block. I really love what you can do to the edges with it.


Karla, Karla, Karla -You Rock!!!
The wee bits of beauty have safely arrived. I've been wondering how you arrived at our choices? Some serious yummy's. I love the harlequin pattern and swirls...and that odd color green of the seam binding --the goldenrod yellow of the crocheted lace ,the textures from the stamped images -the hand drawn cottage...I've got to go put in The Quiet Man. More yummy jack pot stuff in the fleur-de-lis pattern wallpaper -the scroll pattern too...and the stairway paper -I think i'm going to make flower petals out of some of my left over Irish Graffiti paper and put it with the fabric yoyo and the little ladybug lapel pin and make a little wall hanging. My birthday was eleven days ago and it's like getting birthday presents all over again! Thank you to the one's who created the tags i ended up with...so cool.

Great tutorial Karla!

Betty @ She's Sew Pretty

Karla! Now I know what to use the beautiful paper you sent me on. What a great tutorial. I think it is great that a guy likes to makes cards too. You wouldn't catch one of my brothers near my craft supplies. Thank you so much for the beautiful tags too!

Alison Gibbs

Fabulous tutorial Karla
Hey no pics of Sugarwings!!!!!


Hi Karla~
I've been looking at your site for about a week now - wonderful! Wanted to start at the beginning and catch up ~ is February 15, 2007 the beginning of your site? I've always thought about having my own blog site and after looking at yours, finally decided to go ahead! I even embellished my first "pretty" box! Gave it to my mother for her birthday yesterday! (forgot to take a pic of it, but will). Thanks for inspiring me to go ahead and "TRY"!

I'll send a link to my site soon...when there's something for someone to look at!! : )
