Good Morning, happy last day of January! I went to an upline meeting on Saturday, we were asked to make a quick card (under 10 minutes) so this is what I came up with. I pre-embossed and of course had everything cut, all they needed to do was stamp the flower and the happy birthday and punch those out and assembly the card. Have a great day and see ya tomorrow.

Good morning, I hope you had a great weekend. Boy, Monday morning - I am so slow to get going today. My grand kids are starting to loose their teeth so I thought I would make them a tooth holder for the tooth fairy. I used the Stampin'Up brad containers and just decorated with DSP, I made rosettes for the top to give them a little texture. I enjoyed making them. Thanks for stopping by and see you tomorrow.

Good morning. These Labels Framelits are so neat to use, I love playing with them. What I like about it is you can stamp first, then just line up the framelit and run it through your Big Shot. Wow, so easy, no more using the stamp-a-ma-jig. Thanks for stopping by and see ya tomorrow.

Happy Friday!! We have been snowed in for the last 3 days, we have about 8 inches of snow now and boy do we have cabin fever. It snowed all day yesterday, it could have been worse, in other parts of the area they had frezzing rain on top of the snow, which caused lots of problems. The weather people are saying the temp is going to get warmer today and then turn to rain. Then we will have lots os slush.

Come for a visit tomorrow with a cup of hot spicy tea, SU Stars is having their monthly blog hop, so be prepared to see some fantastic projects. The theme is Ebony & Ivory (with a little splash of color for those who want to). Sounds exciting - huh! Have a great weekend!
