Birthday Bash

Hi Guys,

I hope you've all been enjoying your week so far. My week just flew by and was so hectic with getting together with friends to stamp, designing cards for up-coming classes and teaching.

I wanted to share with you pictures of the Birthday Party that the owners of the store where I teach, Heidi & Simon, threw for me. Check out their website for more pictures .
I really want to thank Heidi and Simon for inviting me to teach at their store and for their kindness and generosity. Heidi really out-did herself, and, made me the most gorgeous autograph book and she got all the 28 people that came for the whole day, and other friends that dropped by but couldn't stay, to sign the book. We had a great lunch (pizza, sushi, wings) and Heidi even made loot bags and gave them out to everyone whom attended. There were specials and make 'n takes, and everyone had a great time. This meant so much to me. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the day with everyone.

These women are so talented and so wonderful that I will share with you some of the cards I received. Thanks so much ladies for the beautiful cards, flowers, gourmet cookies, home-made biscotties, gift certificates, a fabulous stamped pad. Your generosity and friendship means the world to me.

Here are the pictures, in no particular order, of the most wonderful friends ever. Enjoy!

Have a special day

Hi Guys,

I hope you all had a great weekend and had lots of time to stamp. My weekend flew by between teaching on Saturday, and, Sunday was spent with my kids and grand-daughters. We had a blast.

There have been such fabulous challenges and sketches in blogland lately. I fell in love with this one sketch by Mercy, and I was so inspired by a card my friend Irene made, that I just had to try it out and see what I could come up with. This is the card I am posting . What do you think ?

I used a Hero Arts thistle stamp and coloured it with a Dove Blender and metalic Pebbles chalk. I also glittered it with glamour dust. The polka dot image is by Great Impression and I used soft baby blue by Memories. I wanted a very soft and subtle look on the kraft card stock.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
