Beautiful Wings “Sorry” card

Hello friends!  I’m headed out of town this weekend for a fun time scrapbooking with some of my favorite customers.  I’m so glad they invited me, and now that the baby is gone, I could use a little time away and some laughter.  They are promising to entertain me all weekend and not let me cry!  I have already prepared a new post for Monday since Allyson and I will be going to Hardin-Simmons University…

Sympathy Cards

Unfortunately, I have been in need of Sympathy cards here lately.  I like to keep them on hand, and I have run out.  It seems like I’m never really in the mood to make them, but I decided to make a few yesterday.  I saw this design in our Stampin’ Success Demonstrator Magazine (one of my favorite demonstrator perks) and decided to create it in two color schemes.  Maybe it will give you an idea…

April Club Project — One Sheet Wonder

Our April Project comes from an idea that Diane Noble has on her blog.  Please go to Diane’s Designs and see her lovely work.  She sells templates and project planners from time to time and I always grab them up!  She has become a friend of mine in “cyberspace” and I can’t wait to meet her someday.  She is a pastor’s wife, and has a heart of gold!  She has truly ministered to me in a…

Awash With Flowers – Thank You Card

I am feeling extremely blessed these days……and extremely thankful!  I have so much to be thankful for right now, and I am overwhelmed with God’s goodness and love for me these days!  I have had the joy and privelege of talking to our baby’s new adoptive family on the phone several times, and I couldn’t be happier.  We are still waiting for word on when we will be meeting face-to-face, but we are hoping that…

Two Step into Spring and Weekend Photos

I posted details last week on our new promotion for April. This promotion titled “Two Step into Spring” features a gorgeous new stamp set called “Awash with Flowers” — it has 18 pieces!  It is so perfect for the spring, floral type of cards that I’m in the mood to create these days…… This was my first time to play with this set, and I was pretty pleased with my first card.  I will show you…

Friendship Card

Several weeks ago, one of my “blogging friends” — who is also a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator — asked me to participate in a Sketch Challenge.  I have been too busy to really even THINK about it, but this past Monday I decided to give it a quick try.    Here was her sketch, and she had one stamped card to go along with it.  Now remember, I said that I gave it a QUICK try…….and do…

Happy Easter!

Good morning!  I am headed off to see Lindsey’s performance of the UIL One Act Play this morning at 8 am!  They are performing for the HS Student Body today, so I want to be there to support her.  They did NOT advance to the next level, but I am so proud of  their work.  And they have had to be at school at 6 am each morning since the end of January!  WOW!  That…

Faux Metal Ceiling Tiles

Today I would like to show you one of our club projects from March.  This idea came from Diana Gibbs’ Blog and can be found HERE.  I would like to give her FULL credit for the fantastic idea and the video tutorial is equally fantastic!  Her watercoloring is far superior to mine, but I do hope that someday I can perfect my skills in that department.  She is unbelievable!  So, here is what we made….. I…
