I would like to show you some more of the projects that I made. I made a technique card using the FAUX SILK technique. I had so much fun doing this. I used Embrace Life and Sense of Time stamp sets.

This next project was to make a holder and then to make cards to go in it. I learned how to do this at a retreat that I went to earlier in the year. I used the stamp set Friends 24-7. I just love this set. Don't you?

In tomorrow's post, I will show you the cards and
also the last project.

Thanks for looking and hope to see you soon!

I showed you projects last week from my Spring Fling partner, Karen. Now, I would like to share some of the projects that I made for her.
This first one is the hostess gift. I used rub on's to decorate the glass container. I had never used rub ons before and I really liked the look. Plus, they are so easy to use. They came out of the Occasions Mini catalog.
The next projects are the two 6x6 scrapbook pages. I had Karen's daughter in mind when I made these. I used Riding Hood Red, Chocolate Chip, and Candy Lane DSP. I used flowers and the pearls from the Pretties Kit and colored the edges with Pink Pirouette.The stamp set is Always

I hope that you like these. Come back and see what else I made for Karen.

I would like to take this time to wish every father out there a Happy Father's Day. I know that I don't have many men (if any) that read my blog but I thought that I would put that out there. I lost my father in 2001 and this is probably one of the day's that I miss him the most.

More presents from my Spring Fling Partner!!

I wanted to share some more of the goodies that I got from my friend, Karen. Just look at these goodies.
The first one is a 3x3 card holder and 4 3x3 cards to go with it. I just love the Kiwi Kiss and Raspberry Tart DSP. I sure am going to miss them when they retire.
Next is a post it note holder. I love the Good Morning Sunshine DSP. I had wanted to get some and waited till last month to order mine. I sure am going to miss this one too.
The next card is a Technique Card featuring the Cracked Glass Technique. I had always wanted to learn how to do this. Karen was so sweet to include the directions. I can't wait to make one myself.

Look at what I got!!

Today's post is going to be different from what I usually do. Today, I want to tell you about a group that I am in and share some things that I have gotten. I belong to a group called SUDEMOONLY.
This is a community of Stampin' Up! demonstrators in both the US and Canada who enjoy the opportunity to brighten another demo's day! They had an activity that you could participate in called Spring Fling. You were matched up with another demo and then you had two assignments per week for a month to complete. When the month was over, you mailed everything to your partner. Well, I got to know the sweetest demo from California. Her name is Karen Christensen. Here are some of the projects that she made and sent to me.

The first two are of a gift card holder. Karen used Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink and Tea Party DSP. She also used the Great Friend stamp set. Even though we just met, we share a love of coffee and she surprised me with a Starbucks gift card. How cool is that!
The next project is a refrigerator magnet could be used as a hostess gift. Karen used Sweet Always DSP and images from Goody-Goody Gumdrops. The next assignment was to alter something. Karen made me the cutest keychain out of a dominoe. I love the color and the bling. After I took the picture, I immediately put it on my keyring. And the last project I am going to show you are two 6x6 scrapbook pages. She knows I love the beach and these will look great in my "Beach Scrapbook".

Ok that is enough for now. I want you to come back so you can see the other projects that Karen made. I hope you enjoyed them as much as I have.

Where have I been?


Just wanted to let everyone know that I am back. I took a long vacation at the beach when school was out and then came home to get my wisdom teeth out. Thanks for all the concerns for my whereabouts.

I have a new card that I would like to share with you. I am in a monthly card swap and this month I did a baby card. Now let me give you the head's up because this is not your traditional baby card. I love the Cheep Talk stamp set and I wanted to use it. I hope you like it.
Paper: Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Very Vanilla, So Saffron DSP.
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss.
Accessories: Circle Scissor, So Saffron 7/8" Polytwill Ribbon, Scallop Oval Punch, Large Oval Punch, Crystal Effects, YoYo Yellow Reinker.
My Circle Scissor just came in and I couldn't wait to play with it. It is great! I had so much fun. I know that I will definitely be using this alot.
I also tried a new technique today. I learned how to make Faux Dewdrops using crystal effects and reinkers. You can find the tutorial video on YouTube at this address You can also see Michelle's blog at
I will have another post for you tomorrow. I have been working on several projects and I have gotten a few surprises too!!
