I still make cards

Ha! It's been a while but I made some cards. For the first one I stamped the leaves and sentiment with SU Best Blossoms. The bottom is plum color paper that I punched with my new Fiskars Apron Lace border punch. The top is striped purple and white paper I've had for years. For the next card I used SU Touch of Nature colored with Prismacolor pencils. I masked the image and stamped SU French Script. I used another new Fiskars border punch for the bottom along with some ribbon and some twill that I stamped with a Hero Arts sentiment. Lastly, this is a really quick card with DCWV papers and Cornish Heritage Farms bunny and sentiment.
Thanks for coming by. Have a great day.

The Spice Girls

I had three participants in my Spice It Up Challenge. They all took a totally different and creative approach to the challenge to makeover a spice container. Here are the entries:
Christie from I Must Stamp.

Catherine from Paper Garden Projects

The judges (my very crafty mom, sister and niece) had a very tough time choosing. My niece was the tie-breaker. She chose Christie's pretty purple vase as the winner. Christie, I am sending you the Love book along with some goodies. And, because it was so close, Catherine and Jan will also be getting treats from me.
Thank you ladies for sharing your talent.

I need a vacation from my vacation

I took a few days off work and came up to Sacramento for some fun times with my friend, Suzie. A little over a week ago her son decided to get married while I was up here. My weekend was spent dipping strawberries, cookies and pretzels in white and dark chocolate, helping choose music, helping decorate the reception tables, and generally running all over town buying supplies. The good news is that everything looked (and tasted) wonderful and the bride and groom looked gorgeous. The bride and groom's son Hayden ate about 20 of the pretzels. So, today is Sunday, or the day after the wedding, and Suzie and I decided to relax and drive up to the Sacramento LDS Temple. It was really nice and quiet up there. I fly home tomorrow via Jet Blue. Can I just say that I love Jet Blue!?!
