Card Class and a Sneak Peek

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Brrr is it cold or what?!  Not freezing cold as the east coast nevertheless there has definitely been a change here in northern California.
I wanted to share some pics from my class last week.  I can't believe how many times I've sat down to start this post and life kept getting in the way (kwim??)  Anyway, I told the ladies I was going to put them on my blog so best keep my word! (Hello Britteny!!)

I had 12 fun ladies attend class!  

I set up stations (Embossing & Die-cutting with the Cuttlebugs, Embossing Powder and Stamping) 

Fun time!

 Here is a pic of the cards we made!

Sneak peak of January Class

This CAS Thanks card could easily be mass produced and just change up the sentiment die for a different occasion!  The thanks die is from Lawn Fawn and the designer paper is from Simple Stories.
This is a sneak peek at one of the 4 cards we will be making in my January class at the lss. Perfect time to make some thank you cards, right!?  We will be doing 2 winter "thanks" cards and 2 all occasion "thanks" and my plan is to do 2 masculine and 2 that are more on the feminine side. This photo doesn't show the kraft colored embossed woodgrain paper well at all.  We just got it at Scrapper's Edge and it is 12x12, it also comes in black and gray. The texture is subtle and I think adding a little bit of ink over it would make it stand out better in the photo (hmmmm, the creative juices are beginning to flow... lol! ) The paper will be perfect for scrapbooking those masculine/outdoorsy layouts, too!  What do ya think?

Well thanks for visiting!  Have a great day and stay warm!

Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart.      Psalm 32:11

Card Full of Thanks and belated Congrats to my team!

Hello again Delightful Friends and Family,
I am supposed to be doing some work around the house instead of posting a card! Just couldn't help myself when I saw this sketch at Try Stampin' on Tuesday #192!  Easy peasy and I was wanting to try this stamping technique using different "thank you" stamps.  Hope you like my results!

Stamps: Paper Smooches; Dies: Spellbinder Nestabilities Oval (scallop and regular) and Lawn Fawn Stitched leaves. Ink: Hero Arts Shadow Ink in Field Greens mid-tone and Archival Jet Black
Base: Neenah Desert Storm, Bazzill Card Stock, not sure about the maker of the designer paper, it was in a Key Ingredient Kit from Taylored Expressions a couple of years ago.

Thanks for visiting!  Enjoy your day.

If you continue in My word, you really are My disciples.  You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.  John 8:31-32

PS.  I'm a little bit late on this but CONGRATULATIONS to the World Series Champions: San Francisco Giants!  That's my team!!! Yay!! What a crazy season! And what a great series with the Kansas City Royals - very exciting!

Thankful for Blessings

Hello Delightful friends and family!
We celebrated our youngest granddaughter's 4th birthday tonight!  Cannot believe she is already four.  I'll share a picture of her and the card I made her later.  She is a cutie pie!
Here is a card that I'll be sharing at Card Concepts #22 (inspiration photo below) I think my style on this is a combination of clean layers and freestyle collage. I will also be sharing this at Word Art Wednesday #157.  It's Anything Goes at WAW every week.  Fun inspiration at both sites.

Thanks for visiting! Enjoy the rest of the week :-)

He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.  2 Corinthians 5:21
