Retired Stamp Set

Our neighbor, Iggie, was honored in the Rapid City Journal this past week for all of his work he has done with sports, youth and umpiring. I clipped out the article and sent it to him along with a card I made from one of my favorite retired stamp sport sets. He reffed and umprired all of the above sports-baseball, football volleyball and basketball. Congratulations, Iggie, you deserve the recognition for giving so much of your time to young people!!!

Sweet Details

What a busy morning!!! Trying to catch up on household chores-mending, ironing, washing clothes, packing, etc. I made this card last night as I am trying to get some cards made for the upcoming May Scrapbooking Special. This card is made with a new download called "Sweet Details DSP and Sweet Details Stamp Set". I also used "Heard from the Heart" Stamp set and some large pearls. I really had to downsize the flower as it is huge (will be great for scrapbooking). I hope you enjoy your day-going to try and get my lawn mowed as it is getting out of control already!

Another 4 Frames

This is another card using the new DSP that is the April Special. I used Cherry Cobbler cs with this Four Frame and also the Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding which is in the Occasions Mini Catalog until April 30th and the Decorative Label Punch which is also in the Occasions Mini catalog. I punched the Cherry Cobbler cs and then cut it in half to get the extra border around the frame. I have been busy getting ready for a Norwex Party for this evening! Love their products-their window cloth is fantastic! I hope you have a great day --I think I am going to be able to sneak in a little stamping this afternoon.

4 Frames and DSP Special

Sorry, I have been gone for awhile as had an All Occasions Card Class (es) and spending time outside trying to get caught up on the outdoor thing and working cattle. Always something to do on this place! Had a great card class once the weather decided to cooperate. This card uses the Daisy Petals DSP (122367) for $9.95 and the Four Frames Set ( Wood # 123440 for $20.95) (Clear ##123442 for $15.95) that is just offered in the month of April if you place a $20.00 order. They will both be in the new Idea Catalog in July but not until July-they are so beautiful and fun to work with! If you have time sign up to be a follower on the sidebar! It is very easy to do!

Baja Breeze Heartfelt Thanks

We made this beautiful card in Club in the month of April. Thank you Lynn for the great idea! You can brayer over just the paper flowers or if you want it darker you can brayer over the flowers after you put them on the Baja Breeze circle. I used "Heartfelt Thanks" which was a stamp set you could get FREE during SAB but you can still also buy it in the Idea Catalog. I also used Baja Breeze, Expresso and Whisper White card stock along with the Soriee DSP. The dies are the large scallop circle and the clear large circle. I am headed to the Assisted Living to help them make some May Day cards and then off to visit my dad and run some errands. Yesterday was so beautiful as I cleaned out my garden spot and flower beds and hauled branches away and now today it is so windy out. Have a great day!

Embossing Folder

This is one of the cards we made at club this month. I punched out all of the flowers, centers, and leaves and glued them on the Daffodil Delight card stock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the Embossing Folder. Then I stamped on the oval and adhesived it to the scalloped oval punch. I also added a small clip on the oval. I hope you had a good evening!

Scalloped Square Purses

I just finished making 15 purses for one of the elementary school's reading incentive program. They use the purses for their reading prizes. I used some fabric, Scalloped Square Die and the Big Shot! I used some of the striped wide ribbon for handles for the purses. Another project completed--! The weather is so nice here that we don't even need a jacket! It is suppose to be cool and snowy again this week! Have a great afternoon-I am heading to my Scrapbook Club for an afternoon of fun and scrapping!
