Busy day…

Helo friends………when I write these posts, I am usually writing them the DAY BEFORE and then setting the timer to post them at 5 am the next day.  Did you guys realize that?  I hope so……..surely you don’t think I post every morning at 5 am!  Although I am usually starting to wake up at that time……..thanks to a little princess in our house, who doesn’t understand “sleeping in”……..we’re always up by 6 am at…

Pick A Petal Thank You Card

I received this gorgeous card last week  from my friend Linda.  I feel like I need to say “thank you” for the “thank you”……..ya’ know what I mean?  It was one of the prettiest I have received in a long time!  Thank you, Linda!!! I am not sure about all the details, but I think colors are Basic Black and Kiwi Kiss.  The printed papers are not all Stampin’ Up! papers, but the green ones…

Krazy about Kaliedoscope!

If you checked in with me yesterday, you know that I have had some fun playing with the new Kaliedoscope DSP.  I am really drawn to the interesting mixture of colors.  I was able to put so many of our cardstock colors with the different prints…….I couldn’t stop mixing and matching!  This first card is Apricot Appeal and Regal Rose.  It was so pleasing to my eyes!   This card uses the same layout at yesterday’s…

Hello again!

Hello friends!  Hope you didn’t miss me too much over the weekend!  I tried to stay away from the computer as much as possible!  We enjoyed quite a bit of family time together and I tried to get a little housework done, too.  I spent some time on Sunday afternoon trying to clean up my office and put things away.  It got a little out of hand last week when I had my classes.  So,…

Club Project #2

The second (simple) card that we did at my club kick-off class used the Medallion Stamp Set.  If you have not fallen in love with this stamp, I will try to force you into loving it.  I plan on using it over and over and over again!  I love how simple and how elegant it is.  You can finish a card in seconds…….well, maybe a few minutes!  I have also found that the boldness of…

Club Class Projects

Last night was a very fun night!  After a busy day of cleaning and setting up  — and doing other “mommy tasks” — it was so much fun to get together with some of my favorite customers!  There are 20 club members (2 groups) this year and I am so excited to have a few “newbies” to the group as well.  We kept things pretty simple tonight and did 3 cards.  I wanted to have…

One more Fancy Flower…

Good morning!  Tonight is the first meeting of my Club Classes.  We will all meet together for this first meeting………lots of ladies and lots of fun!  I need to make this short and sweet — house cleaning and laundry still waiting on me!  I used the same set as yesterday’s card — Flower Fancy.  I tried a color-block look for the background and tried to stretch myself into using some different color combos.  I used…

Kick It Up A Notch…

We watch alot of Food Network around here (well……that is, when we even have time to turn the TV on in the first place).  We have grown to love Emeril Lagasse and he is always “kickin’ it up a notch” — adding more and more stuff to enhance the flavors in the recipe.  Well, why not do that on a card?  Here is my first try at “Kick It Up A Notch”………Stampin’ Up! style!!!  Let…
