The last 2 cards from the past week

These are the last 2 cards of my week as Card Captain on the Michael Strong Group.  Again the primary stamp image is from Michael Strong and the greeting stamps are from the "Because We Care" kit from Club Scrap.  Papers and embellishments are from my stash.  I have some good friends that are going through Chemo and thought these would maybe put a smile on their faces.

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm Finally Back Making Cards

I've been making some cards this week for the Michael Strong Yahoo Group and thought I would share them here

Thanks for stopping by.....the background on the first card is from the Gina K - StampTV video, the Lily stamp is from Michael Strong collection and the greeting stamp is from Club Scrap's "Because We Care" kit.

The middle card uses the coffee cup stamps from Michael Strong - the coffee beans and greeting from my stash.  Papers for all cards are out of my stash.

The Vase on the bottom card is from Michael Strong and the greeting is from the Club Scrap "Because we Care" kit.  Flowers from stash.

A Fun Afternoon of Crafting

On Wednesdays I have a couple of friends that I get together with and "play" with different crafts.  Today it was just two of us.  I ended up practicing with making some paper Rosette's.  I don't have any of the dies for making them, so I just cut strips of paper and used my score board from Martha Stewart.  The three small ones are made with some vellum from Club Scraps Bandanarama kit, the other two were made with some paper I had in my stash.  Buttons from my friend's stash :).

Hope you enjoyed these - they are fun to make and there are so many possibilities for use.  Thanks for stopping by.

Info on the previous cards

someone wanted to know how I did the butterfly on one of the cards from an earlier post today:
The butterfly and dragonfly are both stamps from Michael Strong
I stamped, embossed and cut each one out and then used foam pop dots to adhere to the card.

Thank you for the great comments.  These are very quick and easy to make.


Cards from the latest TJ Newsletter

These are some cards I meant to post in January when I got the latest edition of the Technique Junkies Newsletter.  I also saw a tutorial just prior to getting that newsletter from Tricia Morris of Club Scrap.  It's a very simple technique with watercolors and you can make some very pretty cards with it.

 Thanks for stopping by and I'll get some more later

Catching up

I just thought maybe I'd better get back into updating my blog.  Have been very busy here in our community since the first of the year and the last 7 weeks was really creating in the Annual PSL - ProScrappers League challenges at Club Scrap.  WOW!!! what a challenge - 4 scrapbook teams, 2 cards teams, and 2 digi teams and 1 non-compete team.  I did a total of 193 cards and 27 digitals.  Thought I'd start adding some digital pages and then I'll add on some cards that I did - I won't do all but just a sampling.

Hopefully I'll get back into a regular habit of posting.

Thanks for checking it out

 Had to do this page using a photo my daughter sent me of a picture that my 5 year old granddaughter did for me
