I have been asked to do a blending class.  I did something similar last year, we did a one layer card.  I stepped this up just a little bit! It’s simple yet elegant.  You can put any verse on it or no verse at all and use as note cards. There’s a “touch” of Dazzling Diamonds on the tree.  It’s tough to see in this picture.

Look for this in an upcoming class!

Exciting News!!

Until now, clearance items have been limited to demonstrator and online orders to ensure that product was available at the time of purchase. When the Hostess Code was introduced, it became possible to add clearance items and to have them included on workshop orders. To make it even easier to add clearance items to any type of order, we have lifted the ban on placing clearance items on workshop orders.

We still strongly recommend that customers order clearance items on online orders or workshop orders via a hostess code to guarantee availability. Customers may add clearance items to her paper order (for a customer or workshop order), but because clearance items are only available while supplies last, it’s possible that the item will not be available with the order is submitted, making it necessary for you to contact her, find an alternate item and possibly affect hostess benefits.

Get Well Card for Kids

My husband’s boss’s 4 year old daughter has been going through some serious medical problems.

The prognosis is good, but she is in for a long, tough road, as are the parents.

I hope this card will cheer her up just a little.

By The Tide

Well, I finally got my shipment from the new IBC! Now I can start posting for upcoming classes!

When By The Tide came out in the Spring Mini, I wasn’t sure if I wanted it or not, but I saw a lot of samples with it and had to get it.

Here are two cards I made with it. I needed a masculine sympathy card to send  😦

The other one will be in an upcoming class – any verse can be put on it.

Cards For Soldiers

A friend of mine sends cards to our troops overseas.  When I found out she did this, I decided to round up some of my stampin’ gals and make a bunch of cards for her to send. I originally going to have the girls just do what they want, but when one of them asked what we were going to do, I decided that it might be best to have some samples for them.  Otherwise, we just might chat all night and not get anything done!!

These are all flat and non-glitter.  The two things I ALWAYS do so it was quite a challenge for me to come up with something.  I copied a few ideas from all over the web so here they are.  Mary Fish was my biggest inspiration!

Ok, now back to stampin!  I’m SO excited about the new catalog.  I’ve cleaned out my stamp room and downsized a lot of retired stamps.  I hate to see them go, but sometimes you just have to get rid of stuff.

I’ve lost a little Mojo waiting for the new catalog.  Now that I put a big order in, I can’t wait to get my goodies!!! I did get some pre-order stuff.  Here’s a card I made with one of the new Hostess sets, Simply Sketched.  It will be the card we make for the June 28th class.
