Frosty the Snowman!!


Thanks to the inspiration I got from my Sister-in-law Beth Lee, who has a plaque that says this and my friend Gayle Kiesow who suggested I make it a  bridge card.

This just made my chuckle and I HAD to make some sort of card out of it!

These bridge cards are so easy to make and put together and this one was so fun.

Hope you enjoy it.

I did use thick white card stock for the base which is cut 4 1/4 x 8
Scored at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 5 1/2, and 7 3/4"
Designer Paper Merry Little Christmas is cut 4 x 3 for the center and 4 stripes cut at
1 x 4

Card Buffet Time


This Wednesday night and Thursday afternoon it's time for the September Card Buffet.
This buffet has no calories (although you can help yourself to a treat on the way in or out).

Make 6 cards.  I offer 10 designs and you can make up to 2 of any design or 6 different cards.
You decide what to make.  All cards are cute and quick and I do all the work.
All occasions and different styles so you can create the cards you need for the next month.
Your 6 cards are FREE with a minimum purchase!!   Who doesn't like FREE!!

So let me know if you can join me (so I can have the cards cut and ready for you) and feed the creativity void.  We all NEED to create and this makes it easy and fun.

Here are a couple of your choices.  You can make a mermaid swim or celebrate someone's birthday!!

Bring a friend new to stamping and you both get 5 handmade cards.

Blog Waddle, Hurray!!!


Here we go again waddling onto your computer and into your living rooms with our 
Stray Ducklings Blog Hop.
These girls are creative and I'm honored to waddle along with them.

                                               Here's my contribution to the fun.

This card is made with the enormously popular Daisy Delight Stamp Set and
 Designer Series Paper and Daisy Punch!
This punch is the most popular punch Stampin' Up! has ever made!

Instead of creating a daisy I made it into a cornflower by stamping it on the Designer Series Paper, cutting it in half and adding an Early Expresso middle that was embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing folder and punched with a circle punch. 
The Background is embossed with the Brick Wall Embossing Folder and the sentiment banner has linen thread and the small gold sequins added to it to give the all important bling!

Of course, this card was inspired by the marvelous demonstrators who share their work so I can CASE (copy and selectively edit) this and so many of my cards.
Those talented demos are so generous and we all benefit by their sharing spirit.

Hope you enjoy this card.  Waddle on to the next card and let us know what you think!
Happy Stamping.

This Tuesday I an having a technique class that features the inlaid technique, water-coloring and a fun fold card that features a cup of coffee!!
This Technique series is something I've wanted to do for a long time. There are so many fun and easy ways to add the WOW factor to your cards and I've been wanting to share those for a while.

Don't miss out!  RSVP by August 27 so you can join us create these cards.

The picture doesn't do them justice (I know, that's what they all say!) but I'm still in the novice stage of editing my photos so this time it's true.  I do all the hard part and you get the fun of creating and learning.

Email, text or call me.  Two Sessions. 1-4  or 6-9   Free with qualifying purchase or $15.

I decided to parrtipate in a sketch challenge. This was a first for me and I'm surprised how much I enjoyed it. I've followed sketches but never shared them with anyone. This sketch included the dimensions which made it easy and much more fun. Here's what I came up with. Hope you enjoy it!
