Nice Surprise When I Got Home

These two cards were waiting for me as I got home from my travels to Saskatchewan.   It was quite a scary drive for awhile through the fog and heavy rain so these made my day!  They are both from two of my upline - Ann Driscoll made the first card and Angela McKay made the second one.  Aren't they gorgeous!

I decided to try sponging some Old Olive ink around the outside and adding more stamps.  I probably will not be posting for the few days it takes me to drive back to B.C.    I will be glad to be back to my crafting room and my own bed!

Fall Colours

I have just been experimenting with various stamps out of  the sets that I am traveling with.   I have colored the leaves with pens so they are a little different then when you stamp on an ink pad.

Addicting Friends

I had made my friend some cards and she liked them so much she wanted to try to make some of her own.   She bought the flowers in the Dollar store and we designed the two Vanilla ones and then she just played with the scraps on the table to make some more.

Cards with Pictures

I have been helping my sister put her beautiful pictures on cards.   It isn't great taking pictures with the lighting here but I think we came up with some beautiful cards just using her pictures.   These are just two and I don't think my pictures do them justice but ....I do think I have her hooked into making cards.

Open House

I have finally been able to connect to the internet for a bit on my travels.   I will be having an Open House and there will be many new items from the new catalogue to see.

I am just beginning to try my hand at blendabilities.   They make such beautiful flowers.   I am taking a little trip so am not sure I will have access to wireless connections but we will see what happens.

I love these little guys - I designed a little kit for a ten year old so she could make her own cards.    I will have to try the little ones I have seen.

I had made this card awhile ago and decided it needed some additional layering.   I had left it blank before but I think it needed the sentiment.

Love Pistachio Pudding!

I love Pistachio Pudding.   This is such a simple card yet so pretty and just uses the color Pistachio Pudding.   The card sample I had for my class was different but one of the ladies in my class asked me if I had white ink and we came up with a new design right there.   It is really fun when that happens at classes.
