Happy LONG Weekend Everyone!!

Hello Stampers:

Just what we've been waiting for - a long weekend, well NOT the rain part, but 3 whole days to do with as you wish.  I have a lot of gardening to do, but I'm now limited to the amount of time I can spend in the garden.  Bad knee, not much workee'!  OK, never mind the spelling, or weather it is even a word, how about a few cards.

My Father- In-Laws birthday is on Sunday the 22nd, so I thought since I was in the card making business, I'd better have one for him.  It is also his sisters birthday on the same day.  Not nice, who wants to celebrate their birthday with a sister or brother.  But I guess they have gotten over that now, and are going to make a day of celebrating!  If you double click on the photo's they will enlarge so you can get a better view!!

Here is the card I made for Rod!  My father-In-law ....  It is a NON STAMPIN UP Card using some of my favorite markers!  I think he'll enjoy this, he loves fishing, maybe it will inspire him.

OK - the next one is for Iris, my husbands aunt, the SISTER who is also celebrating the big BD!!

I love this stamp, and had so much fun coloring her and adding the flowers.  Again, this is a non-stampin up set, using my other favorite markers to add the color.

And lastly, another favorite.  Although this one I'm hanging on to until I find just the right occasion to give it.  Hope you had some fun looking at my cards today and we'll talk again soon!!

She's just my cup of tea !!

Sympathy Card Class

Hi Stampers:

I thought I would update you on our next class:   Sympathy Cards

Tuesday May 10th from 1 to 4 pm 

Sunday May 15th from 1 to 4 pm

In this class we will make 4 lovely Sympathy cards as well a portfolio type box to keep them in, or you could give them as a gift.  Unfortunately these are cards we should always have on hand, and they will mean that much more to the recipient as they were made with love from you.

I look forward to seeing you, please let me know if you are unable to attend.  It's greatly appreciated.

I have a couple of other cards I thought I would share with you.  Please note, they are Non Stampin' Up! stamps as well some other markers I've been playing with.  I will have them available at class for you to look at.

I hope it is extra special for each of you.  See you soon!


This was a card set I made for my Daughter for her birthday, she should have enough cards for a little while!  Maybe there's one in there for Mothers Day!  LOL

This is the card I made for my Mom.  The lines are made by using your cutting tool and a score blade.  It's very simple and gives a great back ground.  I also used inks and a sponge to mottle the background color.  I think Mom will enjoy it!!

This is a lovely Birthday Card I finished and made an awesome background by putting it through the big shot using the square lattice embossing folder.  It makes the paper look like material.  Very Cool!!

Then lastly, this is my favorite, haven't decided what I will use it for, but it could easily be birthday, friendship, probably a lot of choices.  She looks much prettier than in the photo and I had a lot of fun creating her.  I look forward to sharing these project with you at next class. 

Until then, take care
