Busy Busy Week!

This week is going so fast. Saturday, Michele and I went to Scrapbookers Paradise to crop. I was asked to make 6 cards using MOXXIE papers. If I am posted anywhere, MOXXIE will pay me, if I enter any contests and am posted, they will pay me. Their pp collections are awesome. I chose a baby collection.

Monday I had to go to Rockside Road and meet the guys we are doing the Sportsman Show for and get the stuff for the booth. Larry has a large picture on the booth and my brother in law, David, and Larry have several pics in the photo albums!

Tuesday, I was supposed to go to dinner with my friends from Archiver's but didn't feel up to par and stayed home, I think I got chilled transferring all the stuff into my car on Mon.

Today, I met my friend Linda G. for lunch at Max & Irma's - we had a great time. Hopefully she will be coming over to make cards next week.

Tonight, I have my first meeting for our 45th Class Reunion.

I was supposed to go and help with crafts at Harvest Home but I cancelled for this month.

I love being busy but not quite this busy.

New Adventure!

I have needed to become involved in something worthwhile and hadn't found the right fit for me. I went to a luncheon for Friends of Children's Hospital a week ago and have joined. I also have offered to make the cards they send out to their members for birthday, sympathy and get well.

"Friends" raises money to help the hospital. They are best known for PINKIE the puppet. They need people to cut and sew Pinkie and we also provide funds for materials and the face of Pinkie. Their main fundraiser is the Harness Race.

I went to a Crop last night and made a ton of cards to give to the club. I have posted some below. There are many embossing folder duplicate designs - just in different colors and embellishments

Remember how excited you were in school and it was time to open all the Valentines in your box? I had a crush on Rick Scheu and he got ME a BIG valentine and the rest a small one......until I saw that he got ALL the girls in our group a BIG Valentine ): Heck with him! Funny the silly and important things you remember from 4th grade.

I have been experimenting with making some Valentines. The pink and white one, I sort of copied from Heart Prints ( I think I borrowed most of Joan's ideas and just used my heart nestabilities and label One nestabilities.

Thought for the Day

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.
If you concentrate on what you don't have,
you will never, ever have enough.

General Greeting Card retouched

This is a fun card to make using the cuttlebug and the paisley and swiss dots embossing folders. The flower is a Prima flower.

Whew, Been Busy Making Cards!

My Colorado grandson has a birthday this month, my step daughter has a birthday on Valentines Day and I have been making birthday cards and note cards. Still have the monograms to put on one set of note cards. The other note card set was posted several days ago.

Both of the birthday cards were embossed using the cuttlebug. The birthday card is Happy Birthday set from provo craft and the butterflies are from spellbinders and you cut and then emboss them in the cuttlebug - a two step process.The butterfly card was very hard to get everything lined up and it didn't turn out as well as I had hoped.
