Downline Cards

This is
a card that my down line, Shirrise, made this past month! Nice, springy and colorful!  We had a wonderful time at our meeting and love to get together with everyone and had lots to accomplish in one night!

Carol, another down line member made this cute Whale Card with the new little whale clips, and glitter paper.
It has been quite hectic around here as my husband just had a new hip put in. So far doing well and keeping up with everything except of course my blog has been suffering! Take care and have a beautiful day as suppose to be in the 70's today!

60th Birthday Party

Lana and I had a fun day last Saturday preparing food and decorating for Roxie's 60th Birthday Party! Lots of food and guests made a great day! I made the pennants using fabric and then used Tempting Turquoise card stock and Expresso for letters. A great cake from Piece of Cake-so yummy. The pinwheels were made with ham and a pickle and wrapped up with a tortilla! A great day!!!

paper flower

This was a fun project that I got from Patty Bennetts blog. We made this at club using the new filter paper and the petite pocket with the Big Shot. I tried 2 different flowers-one I made with punches (this one) and the other one I think I liked better using the framelit flowers. Either way all of the flowers turned out different. We used 6 different pieces of filter paper-2 large, 2 medium and 2 small. I used 2 packages for my club so it does take quite a bit of paper. Then we sprayed the flower with Regal Rose, Daffodil, and added a little Melon Mambo with the little spritzer tools. It looks like we are going to have a sunny day so maybe a lot of snow will melt. I just finished painting all of the shelves in the garage so that job is winding down. It needed to be cleaned and painted but not this way!! Oh, well nice now!!!!

More Snow

28 inches of snow!!! Check out the cool drifts! They are predicting snow or rain for another week! We needed the moisture so bad! I did get some more cleaning done on craft room and the plastic containers are working great to organize the garage shelves! I also played awhile on the MDS today! I love that program!

Winter Blizzard

I love this snow! Oh, we need it so bad!!! It has been snowing for 2 days now and some wind. We have a lot of drifts between the back of the pickup and the auto gate!!! So needed! I cant believe how much I got done--all of my classes for April and May--designed and cut!!! Wahoo! No mail, no paper, no school, businesses closed but a great day to stay home. Now to get everything ready for the vendor show (Shopping Suite) next week. I had to cancel a workshop and class but will reschedule as this moisture is all so worth it. Our vehicles are all outside as just waiting for all the paint to dry and then everything goes back in-probably a good job for tomorrow!!! Hope you are having a wonderful week!
A very, very special thank you to all of the ladies that ordered from me during FREE SHIPPING! Wow! It was fantastic!! So appreciate all of my customers.!!!

My Digital Studio Tag

I gave a 3 minute spill on the MDS and showed club members how to make a tag on the My Digital Studio. Seriously, it did not take more than 3 minutes. I also showed them how they could print 6 tags at once at home. This tag is in the Designer section of the tags. We made it Hybrid by adding rhinestones and some ribbon.
We had a wonderful day yesterday celebrating Roxie's birthday! Lana and I made all of the food for the party and had a wonderful crowd to help her celebrate. Wow! What a nice community!! A lot of hard work but well deserving to a wonderful lady!

We made this card in club this month!! Some turned out really well and some we had to alter and make them look like no mistakes. We had a lot of fun and laughter with this card and was fun trying to figure out how to alter all our problems. You just need to be careful to get all of the image covered with Versa Mark and embossing powder. Be sure and heat gun it well but don't burn it!!! We used the daubers and ink to color in the butterfly.  What a blast!!!
