Stamping with my daughter

Tonight was a special night as my daughter asked me if I would help her make a wedding card for her youth leader.  Of course I would never give up the opportunity to stamp...especially with someone so special!  I have to admit, even if I am a little prejudice, I think she did a GREAT job!

We decided to go with basic black and whisper white cardstock (very elegant for a wedding) and then we embossed a design and "popped" the saying "Happy I Do Day".  And of course, a wedding card would not be complete without a little bling!  She also included white satin & organdy ribbon.

Have a great evening.  Until next posting...

Stamping with Friends

The other night, I held a private card class and five very dear friends came and stamped with me.  Everyone left with a beautiful box of cards.  I hope they had as much fun as I did.  Thank you ladies for a wonderful evening!

Here are 3 pictures of what we created.  It is a box of 5 cards with matching envelopes.

Have a great week.  Until my next posting...

Happy Halloween

It is already the end of October and we will be turning our clocks back this weekend!  My how time flies!  Two months and we will be bringing in the new year!!!  I can't believe I just said that!

I have a few cards to share with you tonight.  I volunteered to make some samples for a shower invitation for a friend of mine.  However, she needed them in August!!!  I was so prompt in making them but then lost them in a pile of card stock and just found them.  I am so embarrassed.  But I'm going to send them to her anyway because they can still be used for a thank you or thinking of you card.  Her daughter's wedding colors were creams and browns.  I bet she loves chocolate!!!  Just a guess!  lol

It's been quite a Monday so I'm going to call it a day.  Have a great evening!

Where does the time go?

I cannot believe it has been a month since I last posted.  Obviously, my schedule has gotten very busy since school and sports have started again.  I hope you will forgive me.
Autumn is officially here and the trees here in Michigan are showing their Autumn Splendor!  I love Fall with all of the colors but I have to admit that Spring is my favorite season.  I love to see everything waking up from the long winter and the smells of flowers and fresh dirt.
I haven't had a lot of time to stamp or be creative but I did manage to copy (from Patty Bennett's blog) this little Santa made from punches!  I need to get some little pom poms for his little hat, but otherwise, I think he's adorable!
Have a great evening.

Another Monday done!

Today was a very busy day and went by very quickly. Two of my daughters had their first soccer practice of the season and my other daughter is trying to figure out hair styles and outfits for school pictures! I made chicken shish-ka-bob on the grill and it was so yummy! All of this after working a full day at my "day job"! Tomorrow will be another day at work and high school orientation tomorrow night. And the rest of the week continues to be busy. I'm sure many of you know exactly what I am talking about as you too are probably just as busy, if not, more!
I found this card in my favorites and thought I would share it with you. It is made entirely of punches and there is no stamping on it. There are a few marks made with a marker on it, dots on the nose and "nails" on the paws. It was a lot of fun making it and wished I had made more while I was taking time punching everything out!
Well, I think this gal is off to bed. That alarm clock goes off way too early!

Beautiful Summer Day

What a gorgeous day today in Michigan! However, my prayers are with those that are having horrible weather due to Hurricane Irene. For those who have lost their lives and for those who have suffered damage and are without power.
Summer is coming to an end and the school hallways will soon be full of laughter and reconnecting with old and new friends!
I'm going to share with you tonight, another card that I demonstrated at my workshop Thursday night. It is using the new Penant Parade stamp set and punch. The Designer Series Paper is Just Add Cake. There are a few more days left for the Stampin'Up! special where you can purchase 3 packages of designer series paper and receive a fourth package FREE! Let me know if you'd like to take advantage of this great offer!
Have a great week !

New Technique!

Hello Friends!
It's been a long day with a magic show over in Grand Rapids and 2 more tomorrow in the same location! We love it when God keeps us busy with sharing His love and stories with others through the art of illusion.
I had fun Thursday night demonstrating my love of stamping with a wonderful friend and 11 of her guests! I get so excited and want to share everything I know, however there just isn't enough time in one evening, or twenty evenings for that matter! Here is one of the cards I demonstrated. It is using a technique I learned on line. It is called reverse imaging. I have seen it on cards and could never figure out how it was done. Now I know. (smile)
Well, I better call it a night as we have an early and long day tomorrow.
