Hi everyone! I have REALLY MISSED you! When I looked back at my last post it was on February first, good grief! I’m sorry I’ve been away for sooooo long! I have to admit, February was challenging…I ended up getting the flu and had to reschedule many of my monthly stamping clubs due to illness and due to all the snow storms! I also changed jobs last week and wanted to be sure I was fresh and well rested, so I haven’t been staying up late to create projects or do all my normal monthly blog hops. AND, as if all that’s not enough, last week two close family members had surgery! Please keep my sister Sue and sister-in-law Kathy in your prayers. They are home recovering, but it will be a long road to healing.
So, one of the things I had to reschedule was my monthly team get together. We met the other night and I wanted to share with you the awesome swaps from this talented group, as well as my Make-and-Take projects. Enjoy! Let me know if you have any questions, I would LOVE to hear from you! I treasure every one of your comments!
Without further ado, here are the wonderful cards, and the name of who created them- aren’t they talented??!! Love these ladies!
Tiffany’s card features the adorable stamp set called “Message in a Bottle”:
Joan’s card features stunning Petal Palette bundle and gorgeous gold foil sheets:
Amye’s card also features the pretty Petal Palette bundle, and she colored with her blends (our alcohol markers):
Kara’s card was made using the manly Truly Tailored bundle and True Gentleman designer series paper:
Kathy’s card was made with the very versatile Hanging Garden stamp set and colored with our blends also:
Laurie’s card features one of our fabulous Sale-a-Bration offerings, Lots of Lavender stamp set and coloring with our awesome blends markers:
Sheila’s card features the adorable Party Panda stamp set and the Bubbles & Fizz designer series paper (both of these items are Sale-a-bration offerings- either one is free with a $50 purchase), love that fussy cutting:
Last but not least, my swap card that I made features our brand new stamp set we launched 2 weeks ago for the last stretch of Sale-a-bration called Blossoming Basket, which is actually part of a bundle that includes the beautiful Basket Weave Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (together these two items are free with a $100 purchase), I water-colored using our aquapainters and reinkers (I diluted them a little bit), what do you think of the Peek-a-boo Peach and Daffodil Delight color combo?? Makes me long for spring!
This is a cute little gift Kara brought me, she made this amazing box (I think she called it the never-ending-box) the lid does not come off, but you pull it up, and it opens so you can remove what is inside- she put some Hershey’s kisses in there for me, how thoughtful?? It was such a surprise and I just adore this little handmade gift, thanks Kara! (I’m totally intimidated about these kind of projects, but she said it wasn’t “too hard”… maybe I’ll try it sometime).
Well, that’s it for today, I have some other cards and projects I will share with you over the next few days… I’m also going to try to get back to the 4 monthly blog hops that I’m involved in… I miss hopping with those talented people. It’s always so inspiring.
