cards from my class last night

Hi there!

Here are the cards that the ladies made last night at my Easy Embellishment's class.

We used the large prima flower, with a half-back pearl. Also the 5/8'' wide chocolate grosgrain ribbon.

As I've mentioned before I love the Three for You tin in this year's Collection. Here is a 3x3 card where we used a rhinestone brad and the double stitched ribbon. The base of the card uses the textured Wasabi cardstock.

This is a great, verstaile layout for using this set - Fun and Fast Notes. Its hard to make out but there are dazzling diamonds on the cake. I also showed how you can use staples on your card as an accent.

Lastly, another 3x3 card on Sky Blue textured cardstock. One of my fav new sets in the Garden Whimsey set. I stamped the butterfly using markers so I could use 2 different colours. After punching out and adhering onto the scallop circle black flower, and mounting it all together, the last step was to use the 2 way glue pen and pour micro beads over. Its so much prettier in real life, the micro beads catch the light and really look pretty.

So there you have them! I had 9 ladies here last night and amazingly enough everyone was gone by 10pm! It went so smoothly and the ladies were such a joy to have here. So friendly, and helping one another. I love nights like that!

Soooo I"m so excited to say that I'm shortly leaving to pick up my long time friend, Michelle! She's coming to spend the weekend and flying from Toronto! We've been friends for 30 years!!!!!!! We have so many great memories and even though its been 3 years since we've seen eachother we just carry on like it was yesterday. Do you have any friends like that? Leave a comment in my comments section and I'll draw a prize next tuesday once she leaves! It can be a friend you've had for ages, or even a friend that is special to you that you've only had for a few years....
I"ve learned that a good friend is worth your weight in gold!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Stampin'

Ummm, I'd have to say my cousin Bonnie. I've known her for the 27 years of my life. I'm going to see her next week in Kelowna.

I really like the new brads that I have seen. I really need to come see you and get my catty.
My bestfriend from school move to TO, so I hadn't seen her in three years and I saw her last summer just after Nico. Was just like we had seen each other the day before. Lots of catching up and it was fun. She's now in Calgary so it's now been a year since I've seen her. Have lots of fun catching up and staying up late.
