Here are a few cards that I was able to squeeze in between traveling to New Hampshire to see my son graduate from college and lounging around back home in Florida.

I made the card below at my Stamp Club meeting. One of our members showed us all how to do embroidered cards. We have our meetings at the Lakeland Library and would love to have more people join us. It's very casual, we had some fabulous cards to share during our show-and-tell.

I love how this tri-f0ld-card came out.
I'll have to make another to sendto someone . . any takers?

Thanks for stopping by

You are all invited to attend the Mount Dora Shoe Box Swap on Saturday June 14th at 10 am - 1:30 pm held by my upline, Vivian. The Library room can only hold 12 people so she is accepting sign ups now. You will need to design a card sample or project and make enough kits for everyone who comes to make one. Please have all your supplies in a box so that everything is there to make your card or project. You will need to please supply your own adhesive and basic stamping supplies. Please bring a bag lunch and beverage as we can eat in the room. We plan on having lots of stamping fun and being able to talk stamping with other stamp addicts and friends. Most people just don't understand our addiction, poor things. LOL!!!

Vivian will post the final number for the amount of swap packets everyone needs to bring but please make 2 extra in case with have last minute attendees. Please contact Vivian for questions at or (352) 357-7184.

I'm bad! I haven't posted in over a week. Well I have been busy being creative...that's always my excuse these days. Here are a few pictures of the cards I have made since my last posting.

This card is for my son who's graduating from the University of New Hampshire.
I'm so proud of him.

It's a criss cross card and you can find the directions here.

Next is a nice little set that I am bringing to convention for one of the prizes our group will be offering.

I used the Garden Whimsey set. I think I'm liking this set more and more.

I decided that I needed a 'gussied up ' notebook and matching pen.
Love it!

And lastly for today anyway. Is the card I made for Vivian, my upline gal. She and her wonderful husband have recently moved into their custom dream home. And it is gorgeous! You can find some pictures at her site here.
So this is the card I made for them using the Neighborhood wheel.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at what I do with my life.

I found a new way to make flowers using all Stampin Up! products. Me...I 'invented' it! I came up with the idea! Tell me what you think of these pretty flowers using whisper white, markers, water and crystal effects. Wow!

Here's another view. The dimension and colors come out fabulous. Can you tell I'm quite proud?

This is another go at scrap booking. The theme was to be about yourself. If you click on the picture, I'm sure you'll be able to read my 'journaling' and of course see the flowers!
I am enjoying these little forays out of making multitudes of cards. My husband has hinted about me doing a scrapbook about his life. He is proud of the fact he has his pilots licence, his scuba license, been to the Grand Canyon......Yes hunny I think it's a fabulous idea.
But anyway, this site is about me! So here is the page about me!

And to finish off my post, this has got to be the easiest card I have ever made.

Enjoy your day,
