I made this card for a friend and am trying to use up some of my old cardstock.   I never really have ever used much purple but seem to be using it more and more in my cards.

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #38

Well, this will be my last challenge with the other fabulous goddesses.   I am finding teaching my cute little Grade Ones absorbs alot of my energy and I have to rest alot because of my fibromyalgia in alot of my spare time.   I would like to make more cards and try a few more classes so have to watch how I spend my time a little more carefully.    Being a part of this great team has really stretched me and helped me become more creative and I am very thankful to have been a part of this team.   They are an extremely talented group of crafters and I hope you continue to enjoy their challenges.     The above tags are all made with Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke and I am going to make this part of a class which I will hopefully have more time to put together soon!

Friends Never Fade Class

Well, this has taken me long enough to figure out all the technological aspects of making a class but there has to be a first time!   I have made a PDF file of instructions for these four cards if you would like to have it.    I am going to be doing some classes where I work.   I do have a PayPal account and will be asking $5.00 for the instructions for this class.  You can email me at  to request the instructions and I can email them to you.    Thanks for dropping by!

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #36

Well.....this is very different from everyone else.   I went to put this one in and looked at everyone else's and thought......perhaps I have missed the boat.    But, I tried some different ideas and I kept coming back to this and the triangles in this folded card.   It is a little tricky but you just take a full sheet of paper, fold it in four and then fold two of the opposite ends over which makes the triangles.   I learned how to use the aqua painters to make the rose from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set from my upline Angela McKay.   I used Wild Wasabi to cut out the leaves and the scalloped square.    Be sure to check out the great ideas from the other goddesses!

Stampin' Royalty Challenge #35

There are many fabulous designs for this challenge by the other goddesses and guest designers!   Be sure to check them all out.   I wanted to make a simple card and just used the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp set and Pink Pirouette and a few pearls.  I stamped the flowers onto the top note die and voila!
