Sympathy Card with poppy

Hi,
I needed a sympathy card and these beautiful poppies were on my work table and they kept catching my eye.  Yes, I know the card is bright but I wanted to celebrate this ladies life as she was someone who made friends wherever she went.  I did not know her personally but I do know her daughter and son-in-law.  The sentiment inside said, "Just remember she is now a beautiful flower in Gods garden." 
The folder is Brocade Window by Cuttlebug.  There are two stems of poppies and I pop dotted them to stand out.
Hugs,
Myrna

Hi,
 Just a few cards I have made and not blogged.  I think most of them
are self explanatory.  However, if you have questions I will be happy
to answer them if I can.                                                                       
Hugs,

St. Patrick Day


Hi,
Such a fun little card to make.  I only make one every year for my daughter.
The little faces came from LOVESVG.COM and at this time I cannot remember where the sentiment came from.
Hugs,

Thank you cards Warning: picture heavy







Hi,
Apparently even though I didn't think I was making cards I did quite a few but never blogged so forgive me if I have a ton of cards to post.  This is the way I keep track down the line of what I have done.  I won't go into too many descriptions but if anyone has questions I will be happy to answer.
Card one and two are made with gift wrap from some of my Christmas presents.  The sentiment is raised by using fun foam on one and just several layers on the other.
Card three is a shaker card.
Card four is just scraps from Christmas cards.
Card five is a file from Birds blog.
Card six is my take on That folder that was making the rounds not long ago and is/was very, very popular but also expensive as there were several folders with different backgrounds and I thought I could duplicate it fairly close with my own folders.
Card seven is a thank you to my surgeon and anesthesiologist who did my pacemaker in January.
That's it for now but sorry there will be several more posts like this.
Hugs,
Myrna

Fabric for dimension Two Thank you cards


Hi,
These are two more cards made from Karens inspiration.  Thank you Karen.
 Karen @ https://www.allfreepapercrafts.com/Card-Making/How-to-Use-Fabric-for-Beauty-and-Dimension-on-Handmade-Cards.  The material is some I have had for years and didn't know what to do with it.  I used stickles to outline the flowers. I love this simple but gorgeous technique.
Hugs,
Myrna

Fabric for dimension birthday card.

Hi,
This is one of many cards in my camera. The idea came from Karen @ https://www.allfreepapercrafts.com/Card-Making/How-to-Use-Fabric-for-Beauty-and-Dimension-on-Handmade-Cards and I would like to say thank you to her for helping me get started on my cards again.
  I would like to post all the cards I have done so I have a place to look back on.  However, I do believe there are around 50 and I can't believe I have done that many as I had a real block there for awhile.  My problem is:  if I post that many please tell me how to do it without getting all the wonderful bloggers mad at me for hogging so much space. 
I also want to be able to give credit to the wonderful girls that took the time to share their free cutting files and ideas.  That is if I can remember them after all this time.
I would be grateful for any tips on this particular problem.
Hugs,
Myrna
