Beautiful Snowflake Bag

beautiful bag was made by Shawna with the silver ribbon! How beautiful and then just added to a white bag! Gorgeous! I have been working all afternoon on MDS calendars! I worked with the MDS techs and they helped clean up my computer as I think my computer is about to go!! I love this desk top so hard to give it up!!! One more calendar to go tonight and then 1 more on Friday and will be done with my printing for Christmas. Unless of course I decide to make something else!!! 30% off on printing is a great gift for making Christmas gifts. Then of course if you are a demonstrator you will get at least another 20% off so it has been grand!!! This offer is good until Sunday night!!!

Carol's Fall Card

A beautiful fall card made by Carol with the new Burlap ribbon and Thanksgiving set-Truly Grateful  # 131730. She also used the Tags for You Stamp set! Lovely colors!
I spent the day with my daughter, Kami, at the Pottery Place. We had so much fun with Marie, Linda and Hilda! So I decided to paint a small dish (as I am downsizing right) and make it for my Thanksgiving table. When we were all done they told us we could pick them up on Friday afternoon!!! Oh, well, guess I can use it for 2014 Thanksgiving!!! It was so relaxing and fun-lots of laughter!!!

card reminded me of our adventure last night. Shelle and I did the vendor show at the Comfort Inn. Shelle spent a lot of time making these snowflakes for her cards! We did a lot of laughing and talking but not a lot of selling. However, we never know what will become of our visits with others. We sold some items but it wasn't like are other vendor shows but I do have a lot left for my Christmas gifts so that will be a bonus. Hope you have a great day-I am on my way helping a friend with the MDS. She is finishing a book before the 30% off ends the end of November. Yikes! I don't have much time left to finish my projects!!!!

Sherry Card

just love this card that I got in the mail from my sister, Sherry! So fun!! She had a Starbucks certificate inside. Check out the little straw and the design on the cup! A great start for a day!!!

made this card in our club and had got it from Deb Valder. I liked it better without the leaves as the leaves left a big dark spot under the flower. This is a stained glass technique. You stamp the flower with Staz- On on a window sheet. Then mix Crystal Effects and 2 drops of reinker together on a piece of wax paper. With a paint brush you paint the poinsettia on the same side that you stamped it. Let it dry and then cut it out. Put a little Crystal Effects on the center and put on white card stock. This is very simple and fun to make.  I hope you have a great Sunday. We are suppose to have some snow here today. I just finished cutting out DSP for 80 plus more cups. Hopefully, tomorrow I will be done and all caught up with orders!!!!

Christmas Tree

made this card as one of our club cards. I used the Special Season stamp set #131769 and glitter with the glue stick. The tree is stamped with Sahara Sand and the card stock is white and Costal Cabana. I really like the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder # 132174.  Yesterday I spent the afternoon with Lana in Wyoming working on MDS projects. Great time! I hope you have a great day--looks like a good day to spend some time outside as the weather is beautiful!! I am heading up to Connie's to close a workshop and some good fellowship! Enjoy!!!

Scalloped Square card

made this card in club this month. I had received this card from Jill last year and we made it for the holidays this year. It was made with the scallop square die cut and the Big Shot. The tag is made from punches. The bow is made from the oval punch. A fun card!!! Another busy day ahead of me and the weather is so beautiful so I should be outside working all day but so many projects to do inside also. I just have one more order of cups to do (famous last words) and then will be all caught up. I had a great day yesterday visiting with down line. We have such a nice group!!!

Thanksgiving card

 This is
the card we made in club this month for Thanksgiving. I used the background paper that came with the Thanksgiving Kit that was suppose to use to put around candles. There were 3 leaves that were cut with the Big Shot. I used silver glitter paper and then sponged it with gold.  I am enjoying the Head Start Convention and have sold lots of my cups that I put on my blog on Monday. Also, making lots of new contacts.  I hope you are having a great day!!!

Christmas Hot Chocolate

 This is an idea using the small 4 ounce coffee cups that I had CASED from Deb Valder's website. Deb has the pattern for the cup and the coffee holder thingy that goes around the cup. I made mine just about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch longer. Just added a tag from Tags 4 you in the Holiday Catalog. I filled a jewelry bag full of hot chocolate and marshmallows to put inside.  These were a lot of fun to make and I will have these at the Head Start Vendor Show at the Civic Center Tues, Wed, and Thursday.
I just got sidetracked cleaning closets so now have to get busy and make a few more cups and then  I am off and running!!! Have a great day!!!

You just have to love the grunge look!!! This card was made by my down line and was a fun card to see. Also, notice the chevron embossing folder design. I hope you are having a great day!! It is so windy here--AGAIN!! I have spent the last 3 days totaled out in my stamp room except for helping Cassie yesterday with a workshop!!! I have a 3 day vendor show at the Regional Headstart Conference this week plus 2 clubs and a workshop so it has kept me going!!! Love it!!!
