Another Card from Class

Here is another card we did in class last week.

I am working on another project tonight that was inspired from Barb and Heather scott, but I am not through with it.  So here is another card we did in previous class:


This super duper simple card was created with Simply Devine and the new level C stamp set.  The colors used to stamp the images were Landscape and moulin Rouge.  The centers of the flowers were colored with chalk and the slots in the flowers were also colored with Chalk.

The best way to do this card is to stamp your flowers first, and then stamp the vines.  This way it doesn't look so busy, but I tell you, for a super simple card I love the result.

Another Card from the weekend


This card was inspired from one of Heather Scotts blog sketch.  I didn't like the circle  in her sketch so replaced it with the buttons, but thought it came out really adorable and interesting anyway.  I inkeed the edges of the mimi and the focal image with burnt umber. I really love this new paper that is now printed on both sides. I think the colors are vibrant but not too bright.  The colors are even suitable for the heritage pages that I like to do for my scrapbook occasionally. The dinasour is colored with prismacolor pencils and then blended with odorless mineral spirits.

Specials for the month of July

I know.  I am a slacker.  For the last couple of months my family has struggled with family illness, changing jobs, and life in general.  Both of my grandfathers have been very ill since the first of the year.  One died of COPD and the other CHF.  So I have been taking care of the one with Congestive Heart Failure and my mom was taking care of her dad.  Her dad went first on July the 4th.  And my other grandfather went on July 11.  Both are now at peace.  We are now in the process of settling estates and getting my last living grandmother assituated so that she can be happy and comfortable at home.    So this weekend, I am getting my life back to normal and will be KICKING OFF the new Catalog that was revealed at Seminar the last week of June.  I hate that I am doing it this late, but I really didn't have a choice.  I will have 6 cards to make at the class and cost is 10.00, it will be at my favorite place, the Pontiac Coffee House in Springdale.  They are WONDERFUL to me!

Now, On to the specials.  Here is the month of July specials let me know if you want a catalog or would like to take part in these specials.  They have been updated on the website for the ones you can do online.


You definately want to go through all the ads.  Some of these run for several months.

Sorry it has been so long

I am so sorry it has been so long since my last post.  My family has had a lot of tragedy's of late.  First my grandfathers have been extremely ill the last several months.  Last week I lost my mom's dad to COPD.  During all this my dad's dad has also been in and out of the hospital with Congestive Heart Failure.  Due to this I have been assisting in thier care.  Today, My dad's father passed away as well, So in the last two weeks I have lost both grandfathers. 

I will be posting the sales for July in the next little while.  I am hoping to have an catalog viewing on the 25th at Pontiac Coffee House in Springdale from 1:00 - 4:00 pm.
