These are a few of the cards we made in my class. We used flocking on the pussy willows in the second picture. The bunny on the last card was cut out with my Silhouette. Thanks for dropping by. Have a Blessed Easter! My daughter is home and still gets excited about coloring eggs...

Happy Monday!!
I had a WONDERFUL weekend! I spent it at a friend's house with 11 other ladies. Crafting, eating,laughing, a little sleeping....SO.MUCH.FUN!! I belong to a very special group of friends. They are such a blessing to me!
 This book is one of the projects I worked on. I had the whole collection of My Minds Eye Tangerine collection. I designed this book around that. I still have to add one more ring and some ribbon to finish it. I love the colors...turquoise and coral! My favorites right now. There are more pages but I thought I would just show you some of them.
It is currently snowing ready for spring and such crazy weather....
Have a great day!

 Hello! Its a cold, dreary day here! Good day to stay warm in a blanket, curled up and reading a book. But...for me, I am working on my class projects for tomorrow night. This card is one of them. I used a Fluffles stamp of him tiptoeing thru the tulips. I used a tulip embossing folder for an interesting background. Looks springy to me! Added a touch of subtle sparkle to the flowers. Hopefully the real spring is on its way! The birds have been singing and the pair of ducks that always comes to our backyard are here. They like to swim in the swale (low spot) on the side of our property. They think its their own private pond. Fun to watch them! Have a great day. Happy Crafting!

Hello! It's a great day here. The sun is shining ( still cold though!) and the birdies are singing.
No new projects for you yet. Struggling with extreme fatigue this week so been laying on the couch like a slug! Today I plan on working on organizing and cleaning my craft area. Hopefully I will make some progress. See you soon!

Hello! I am sooo excited! Finally got my hands on one of these doll stamps by Prima. Our local lady is supposed to get them in but hasn't so far. I bought the 2 I really had to have and figure when she gets them in I can get the others from her. SO MUCH FUN! Paper dolls for grown ups! Cant wait to make a few more this afternoon. Thanks for taking a peek! You can click on the picture if you want to see them closer.

Has it already been over a week since I posted? Oh, where does the time go?!I really haven't made any cards except this one for my nieces birthday. I only had a photo on my phone so that's why it isn't so great. The stamp is by Penny Black. I added gems to the middle of the flowers for some sparkle...gotta have the bling ya know! The Happy Birthday was a rub on. We went out to dinner at Red Lobster to celebrate her birthday and then the next night we went to Bucca DePeppos (sp?) for a surprise party. It was a busy weekend!
I know this is my "happy place" but i need to vent a little. Feel free to skip this part but I need to just "get it out"...Did you ever have a friend that you spend a lot of time with..calls you every day, texts you thru out the day,etc.. and then they meet a new friend and you feel dropped like a hot potato? I still see her and talk to her occasionally but just not like it was before. Makes me sad. OK...done venting! I am so blessed to have a group of friends that I am a part of so I don't feel "alone" but it still makes me sad because I don't even think she realizes it....
 Going down to my craft area to try and organize it some more and hopefully later get crafty! I have so many ideas in my head I need to make some of them!!
Have a great day..Its a beautiful day here. The sun is shining :)
