Made this flower bouquet with suckers for a dear friend who turned 50 this month.
She had a great sense of humor about the whole "50" thing. I had seen the original idea on pinterest for a 30th birthday and figured I could make it work with 50 suckers instead. I just used flowers I had purchased at the dollar store to cover some of the suckers and nestabilities to cut the circles. Easy peasy, but lots of fun!!
blue sky today!! We got hit with yet another winter storm this week and YES I know we live in Nova Scotia but that doesn't mean I have to like all this snow. We live in a split entry home and my studio is in the basement. This is the view from my windows.
The view from our back deck is similar. We did have a path shoveled in the middle of the deck to get to the bird feeder. Hmmm... needless to say we have some shovelling to do again as the feeder is almost empty.
I love the little tracks in the snow!! We did get together Monday night for class and made a 2011 calendar. There are numerous sites on the web showing the how to's for this project.
Sorry, but I don't have the paper names. My stem is just a bit too far to the right, in class everyone moved the stem a bit closer to the left border and it balanced it out nicely. We used Spellbinders Labels 15 and I have to add how much I love the shape of this set. We also used MS Doily Lace Trim. Stamps are Fancy Pants Delight.
Have a great weekend!!!
because I am finally posting!!!!! I'm not sure why I haven't posted in such a long time as I have been teaching weekly, so it's not that I don't have cards to share. No promises, but I will try to update on a more regular basis.
Started classes last night for the new year and we kicked it off with Valentines. I saw a card on Wendy Weixler's blog and cased it for our class.
We used the dotted CB folder, My Mind's Eye pp, Dreams come true (SU) and $1 stamps from M's. I was getting rather stressed last spring with the classes, working full time and trying to come up with new ideas so I changed the format of the classes. Now the girls make 4 of the same card, which means I only need to come up with 1 idea. Much lower stress for me and they get 3 cards to give away and 1 to add to their growing collection. Have a happy Tuesday.....
The ghosts and goblins were out this evening in our neighborhood. We got our usual 12 children. Oh dear...what to do with the leftovers..
This is my godson Dawson. He really wasn't feeling all that well tonight. That is his big brother Corey in the window..he looks just like his dad!!!
I started teaching classes at the house again and we did a couple of Halloween projects. I just love these little spiders and made enough to go on the treat bags for tonight.
If your interested in attending, they are Monday evenings @ a cost of $5.00 per class. I'll try to post last weeks class later this week.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend and go Phillies go!!!!
P.S. Don't forget to change your clocks tonight before you go to bed.
day...sure hope you have a chance to participate...
