Guava Flowers

Here is another "entree" on the Card Buffet.  It is so hard to believe this is my last event with the gals here.  I've met so many great ladies!

The card has the upper front piece sliced off.  Then layered with the Groovy Guava prints papers, which retires very soon.  Remember to stock up on any of the "In Colors" from this last year that you enjoy using!!, as they'll no longer be available.  The flower is from the Stitched Exotics stamp set.  I tried REALLY hard not to tie too many ribbons for this last event.  I always get many fits for my ribbons.  Ha.  :)  Notice on this one, we'll just overlap the ribbon and adhere behind the flower for fast leaves!  

Have a great Tuesday!

Card Buffet Sample!

This happy little apple card is a sample of what's gonna be on the upcoming June Card Buffet!  It's been a very fun event to plan.  If you can't make it and would like a sampling of the buffet mailed to you, contact me via email about the options for that.

Once again, using an image from the Tart & Tangy set with the coordinating Summer Picnic paper.  Love this combo.  With utilizing the punches, it makes for a fast card!  Sad that this "Much Appreciated" sentiment set is retiring.  Be sure to check your retiring list before it's too late.

Happy Strawberry Birthday!

I needed a couple birthday cards, so decided to give my little strawberry stamp some "chunky sprinkles".  If you don't have these, you really should get some before the current mini expires.  They are so much fun to work with.  The little strawberry is out of the Tart & Tangy set from the mini as well.  Just marker, stamp, apply Tombo adhesive and sprinkle!  

The tag is made from the word window and then sliced off.  

I have found that "knotting" the bow and wrapping around makes a looser knot and "smooshes" better for mailing.

Hello Everyone!

Yes, I realize how horribly negligent of this site I have been.  Sorry!!  Following our homecoming with Maleah, we ended up with most the entire family sick for a l-o-n-g spell.  Add to that all the adjustments going on in our lives and our upcoming move .... need I say more?!  Ha.  :)

Anyway, I've been busy preparing for my last event here in ND.  Also tending to some thank-you's.  

As well as announcements for Maleah!  Thought you might like to take a peek at the creative progress around here.  The class projects must remain unseen though until the event.  :)

Hope you're all enjoying a wonderful summer.  Ours is one like no other, but we are well and enjoying the many blessings God has showered on us.
