Selling off a ..............

Hi there, I need to clean my Studio out.  It has been a catch all since the Tornado 5 years ago.  I'm still buying, still making cards and still enjoying the craft but it looks like a war zone in that room and now my dining area.  I need to pair down and get rid of stuff that I never use if I'm going to move into Georgia and RV full-time.
Just before I left for Florida last year I had new carpet put in and new upholstery.  Bad move on my part because I got Tucker Dec. 23rd and he was only 8 weeks old.  He is the most stubborn dog I have ever met, he didn't think the Potty Pad was for pee pee, Pooping was always done in the same spot. Needless to say before I leave this summer the carpet will be shampoo'd and between Jake & Tucker  and me,  I will be the dominate one, the boss, the leader!
Gosh I leave in less than 45 days to go to Wisconsin, Indiana, and the Pigeon Forge.  I'm excited it will be the most driving I've done in forever. Over a thousand miles to Diane's, then down to the F.R.O.G. Rally in Goshen, In. after that I will drive down through Kentucky and attend a 3 day Birthday Card Club Retreat. I am so excited woo hoo!!!!
Ok anyway trying to keep this sale thing straight and on two Internet boards and the postage, oh that is such a joke then packing it and shipping.  I'm bushed and I haven't made a card in days so........ hang in there with me I'll have a card posted this week I promise.

OH OH OH the big news is my Second Great Grandson was born Thursday 5 weeks early.  After much praying and thoughts Kaiden is still in NICU but he's looking real good and has big feet just like Big Brother Karson.  God Bless you all.

Well it happened turned the big 70 last week but the good news is I got 38 birthday cards from friends and family .Could not have asked for a better birthday only thing that didn't happen is that Tucker didn't get Tucked, clipped or neutered guess this 3 pound boy is waiting to be a real man.  Anyway all is well around here, my friend Cathy got a pace maker put in and she's feeling really well for the first time in a really long time.

I've done some card making but I'm preparing for a trip to St. Germain, Wi. and Goshen, In. in June so getting the RV ready is my first priority.  Here's a couple of the cards I've made.

You all know my love for butterflies and I love the color combo black & white so these were simple easily cards I made for Head Gamez, where Joey & Linda sell my cards.  They requested Get Well & Sympathy cards with butterflies so these are just a few.   Everyone take care and know I think of all my followers often that's why I'm trying hard to post more.
God Bless, Jeanine

Contest Entry for Sizzix

Lord have mercy on me I've once again let my followers down by not following thru with some posts.  I have just been in another world for so long.  I haven't crafted but sporadically for the past year.  Oh but I still buy stamping stuff and then I'll sit down and make cards or play with my new toys for a few days then blam I fall off again.  What is wrong with me?  Why can't I stay on a straight path and quit being so wishy washy?  Could it be that my mind, body and heck I don't know what else will be 70 that's seventy years old in less than 7 days.  The Lord has blessed me so very much and I thank my almighty maker everyday I'm on this earth for the good & bad.  I can only say I'll try to be a better person to my followers by blogging at least once a week and Lord willing and the creek don't dry I'll put it on my calendar and phone to alert me to this promise for all of you.

Now this is a few of my latest creations.  Thanks for Head Gamez, Joey French and Linda Silvers for selling my cards at their shop I always get requests for special cards.  This past Christmas Joey contacted me in Florida with a request for 40 more Christmas cards for special patrons.  Now they asked me to make lots of butterfly cards and sympathy cards.  Well anyone that knows me knows I love butterflies (I actually have one on the side of my RV and loads more inside).  Every chance I get I stop by butterfly farms, museums and such I LOVE BUTTERFLIES.  I even believe that my Daddy visits me regularly in the hue of a pale yellow butterfly.
 This is SU card stock, embossing folder and Sizzix & Su butterfly dies all on confetti white cardstock.  Very plain but very dramatic.
 This again is SU cardstock, a Sizzix embossing folder and a Sizzix tree die cut.  
Lastly is SU cardstock with Very vanilla and black. the stamp is Angel Company and SU embossing powder in gold.  Now I will be the first to say some of my stuff is unmarked so I don't know if it's Tonic, Sizzix, SU or who and when that happens I will explain it my age has made my mind spongy something I am not proud of but an old dog can learn new tricks.  Now I'm off to play with my Mini Misti that I just got in the mail.  Till another day, God Bless you all.
