Here's a new card I made using the Nurse Doll #6  RX Nurse Get Well Bestie image stamp. This card honors the work done by nurses everywhere.

I colored this light haired cutie using Copic Markers and cut her out leaving a narrow white edge.

I printed a sentiment in my Craft Artist 2 program. I used assorted dies to cut the sentiment, sun and clouds from card stock. These are adhered to a basic white card.

I think it would be lovely to give the nurse at my doctor's office!

I want to show you my latest My Bestie Card!

It's time to get ready for Halloween with some cute and not too scary cards! I chose Img. 11.2 You Still Drive Me Batty.

I colored this cutie and her batty friends using Copic Markers. I triple matted the colored image using Halloween colors on a white base card. I gave the card a bit more interest, embellishing it with a yellow felt flower and gem.

Jackie Robinson a Golden Book Notebook






 Our family is a big fan of baseball. It isn't just the Mets or Yankees back in New York, although they are our favorites, it's anything baseball! Our boys grew up playing baseball, collecting the cards, watching on TV and going to games. They still laugh when they see Abbott and Costello's famous "Who's on First," comedy routine. When my husband Sandy found a toy animated with this routine, he bought it of course! There are figures of assorted players and even a large one of the Babe pointing to center field during the 1932 World Series. The problem is what to get the guy for his birthday, when he seems to have everything. I wanted to give him a baseball item. Then he saw me making a notebook using a Little Golden Book and he said, "I wouldn't mind owning one of those."

Making a notebook in the baseball theme is a fun project. I had to look for the perfect Little Golden Book. I found a good deal on "Jackie Robinson," at Walmart online. The history of this important player in baseball and in the United States, makes this a great addition to my husband's collection.

With card stock, assorted envelopes and writing papers, I put together a really neat book using my Cinch Binder. I used my Cricut Die Cutting Machine to embellish the pages and even used my Happy Jig for a metal wire star.






With ribbons in the perfect bow, this book is ready to meet its new owner.

What I Did When Hurricane Dorian Came!

Well, we knew for about a week that Hurricane Dorian was coming to visit the coast of Florida. Knowing that we are 7 miles from the beach, it was time to make preparations and hubby began early to get the metal shutters up and move things around.

Preparations also include shopping for food to last for several days. So while at the store I spotted some reading material to keep me occupied...a magazine all about my favorite TV show "Downton Abbey." Yeah I was thinking of reading by flashlight! Anyway I did get to look it over, but between watching Dorian's approach and the strong pull to my art room, I could not resist another project, maybe two.


First I put together a "Cinch Perpetual Calendar." I guess my head wasn't into it yet, I made several mistakes, although it is looking cute!
With more time on my hands and the internet working, I looked for another way to make this same project with supplies I have in the art room. I found: kristinscraftykitchen.blogspot.com. With a bit of changes I designed a beachy perpetual calendar. I love how it came out!

My perpetual desk calendars have 33 flaps consisting of 7 days, 12 months and two set of numbered flaps: #0-3 and #0-9. I hope this helps those who had a question.

Graduation Card

https://www.mybestiesshop.com/store/p7513/Instant_Download_Sherri_Baldy_My_Bestie_%22Lil__Gypsys%22__Doll_img7_digi_stamp%2F_Coloring_Page_____.html
This graduation card can see the future is very bright for a recent graduate! I used Lil Gypsy Doll Img 7 for the My Bestie design team card.

I printed this image twice, once on X-press It Blending Card and once on printed card stock. I colored some of the digi on the blending card using Copic Markers and cut it it out.

I cut out the pieces I want to use from the printed card stock. I glued those pieces to the colored image. I adhered the image to a double mat on a white basic card.

I printed a sentiment, cut it out and glued it to the card.
