Let's do the TWIST!

Hi everyone!
Do you remember the days of the TWIST? I used to love to do this dance.... couldn't do it today though! I have a Twisted Card for you today! We will be doing this one at our Card Klub tomorrow!

If you read yesterdays post you will recall that I had a Workshop last night ... and was "worried" that I might forget something! WELL! What are the chances? I did! The ribbon for the card - of all things ... guess I forgot to cut it and put it in the packages! DAH! Even funnier than that I assumed that being in a workplace environment the hostess - nor anyone else - would have what I needed!

Go figure! One of the gals had the ribbon in her desk .... ummmmmm??? :)  Interesting! These girls have regular card-making times together! Gotta love that!

Enough talking - I just thought you'd get a chuckle out of that! Here's the card...

Closed - (there is a pocket here on the front but I have adhered the CS together- you could leave it open if you chose to do so)
 Open ... left side
 Open ... right side ... has a pocket for a gift card or $$$ etc.
Thanks for stopping by today ... I will return next week!

Happy "I DO" Day & and Thank You

Hi Stampers!
This will be a quick post as I have a Stampin' Up! Workshop tonight and I must go pack my stuff! I am always so afraid I am going to leave something home! Most of the time - if I did so - the hostess would probably have it in her craft room. However, tonight I am going to a workplace where I need to bring it all! Here's hoping! :)

Here are 2 different cards I made over the past week... Enjoy!
A wedding card for a wonderful couple! The bride was one of the most beautiful brides I have ever seen!

I sanded the CS for this thank you card ... the CS is in the Holiday Catalogue...

This is the inside of the Thank You card - pretty simple!
Thanks for stopping by ... may you be blessed today!

Shabby Papaya

Good Morning Everyone!
It is a beautiful sunny day here.... hope you are all enjoying sunshine somewhere ... if not outside then for sure in your hearts! :)
I have a shabby card today using the Papaya Collage stamp set - I had so much fun making this card. There is no rhyme nor reason to it! Hope you enjoy it this morning!

Life truly is a matter of moments and it can be taken from us in an instant - I spoke yesterday with a gal whose F-I-L had died in a freak accident last week ... her words were "Our lives changed forever in a second." God be with them. And may we treasure each and every moment we have!

This is the inside of the card -
I think we will make this one at Card Klub this weekend! :)
Blessings and HUGS!
Remember to "treasure the moments!"

Gumball Tango Dragonfly...

Good Morning Stampers!
Whoa! It has been a looooong time since I have been here!
Life just got tooo crazy for me to keep up with it all ... I did a lot of paper crafting over the past 2 weeks - a friend and I made 100 + of the following:  book marks using the Two Tags die and scallop circle punch; little "purses" to hold 2 candy kisses using the Two Tags die; name tags using the large Maple Leaf from the Big Autumn Accents die; decorated the fronts of colorful bags with the largest Apothecary Accent Framelit (stamped with Scripture and Swirls) - PHEW!!!! I wore myself out just typing that! LOL!

Our church hosted the Beth Moore Simulcast this past Saturday ... we had about 100 people present - next year we are trusting for at least double that. The amazing thing was that there were 150,000 women attending that Simulcast worldwide! 50 States; 9 Provinces; 3 military bases; 2 women's prisons; AND - countries across the world! How awesome is that!!!! If you have never attended such a thing I urge you to do so as one of the most refreshing events in your Spiritual Journey.

So ... I wish I had taken some pictures as we progressed thru all that! However, I did take a couple pics of 2 cards I made when another friend visited one afternoon - just to play! She had purchased some dies and wanted to use them ... I LOVE dragonflies ... she gave me the little dragonfly die! Isn't he sweet??? Love, love, love it! here are the cards!
I used Tangerine Tango and Gumball Green ... don't you love that combo??? The pic does not do the card justice! The green is the Core'dinations CS from the Holiday catalogue - this is sandable CS.
Also used the Delicate Designs Folder ... another new favorite!

For this card I used Calypso Coral CS and DSP ... again I used the Delicate Folder - cutting along the scallops to make it a softer edge.
So much fun! Did you notice???? I turned the embossed CS to the negative image in the second card!

Have an awesome day! I have 2 workshops and a local Demonstrators Fall Fling to preapre for so .... will be busy in the carft room for sure!

More Serene Silhouettes

Hi Stampers!
Fall is upon us by the feel of the air - especially at night!
And the days have been busy ones!

I did manage to get in my craft room the other day for a bit and I made these 2 cards - pretty much cased from one I saw either on a blog or on Pinterest ... I changed the colors to suit me - using Wild Wasabi green and Vanilla.
I stamped the silhouette in Soft Suede on this one -  and it was great until I embossed the whole thing and then it sort of disappeared into the embossing. So because of that I made a second one  - see below....

I stamped the silhouette in Early Espresson on this one and it still stood out after being embossed... and I added lace instead of ribbon - I like this one better than the first one.

This is a view of the inside of the card ... both the same ...
Thanks for stopping by today ... hope you have had a great long weekend before the start up of school and all that that entails for those of you with children in school!
Blessings and HUGS!
