Watercolor Winter kit class

Yesterday was the watercolor winter kit class held at my dear friend JoAnne's home. We had a great time, but must say, it was very intense. You have to paint everything first, then stamp while all the pieces are drying. Then you can put every thing together cause they have to be dry. It is worth it, they are beautiful!
 The tree card is my fave!!! I adore low the triangle shaped tree is so cute on this card. The gold glimmer paper behind it lets a little sparkle show thru-
 Isnt this sleight cute??? Who wouldn't want to jump on a sleigh and play in the snow??? Trust me in Texas, there is not much snow-Lucky if you get one or two dustings is all.

 Photos do not do justice to this card- the vellum holly leaves just make this!!! On the rest of my cards, I am going go sponge the edges of the holly leaves to help set them off so they so a bit more.

I think when I finish the other 4, I am painting the words red or green and do opposite stripes. Love the velum snowflake, but it is lost on here for me. Such a cute set of cards and there is lots of embellishments to add.

It was a fun day and we love to meet and we love to visit. Thats what gathering your friends together is all about-
Happy stamping! See you again soon.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Remember these?

I was looking in my computer files and found a photo from last Year when I did a Halloween workshop- Since the purse die is still in the catalog, I want to share this idea again as you start thinking about doing some treat holders.
I still giggle when I see these!

Here are the owl cup-cakes I made and took to work-
This is by far starting the best time of the year for me!

A Rare Opportunity for "Girls Weekend"

I had a rare chance to spend the weekend in OKC with my Mother, two sisters, Carol and Charlie to stamp and giggle and just stamp our hearts out.

We had "Totties" but this time instead of cranberry juice, we used Peach Netar and made Belini's!
Mother and Charlie worked on their Paper Pumpkins-

Bonus was I also got to see my son, Brian and one of my Brothers, Roger.
Brian hates "Selfies" but he still smiled for me!

No stamping to share today, but wanted to share my wonderful weekend!

Getting ready for Halloween

I have  been having so much fun with some of the new things in the Holiday catalog for this fall-
You saw the cute Curvey box framelit yesterday. The demonstrators and making the cutest things from it!
Here is the Wreath I did-
It is so much cuter in real life, this photo does not do it justice. I am ordering another one to Alter it, but wanted to do one just like they show to let you know how easy it was to make!

Havc a great day and stamp something to make you happy!
thanks- Caren
